In Scientology, the manipulation happens gradually over the years. It’s not like people are beaten at the entrance and then happily walk further into a cult.

Dødelig cocktail: Scientologi, Psykopati og Ekstremisme

upstairs

Utdrag fra min dagbok, april 2012: Jeg står musestille ved enden av kjellertrappen, titter opp og lytter etter ham. Var han ikke her nede tidligere i dag, tok han med seg noe verktøy? Jeg frykter han står bak veggen med en hammer, klar til å slå meg i hodet når jeg kommer opp trappen. Blikkene hans har blitt mer og mer ondskapsfulle. Jeg tror ikke jeg overlever sommeren.

Witnessing REAL CRIMES made me jump off the sinking Titanic. Inspired by a post over at Tony Ortega’s blog, where he asked his readers two questions: We’d like to hear about those first stirrings that convinced you that something about the church didn’t seem right.

I guess OSA (Office of Special Affairs = the Gestapo equivalent in Scientology) and other Scientologists felt some urges to trash me after it was known that I had started a relationship with Geir Isene, the only person in Norway who has reached the highest spiritual level (OT 8) in Scientology, and later left the church.
