An Ex-Cult Member Exposes What Happens After Leaving A Cult: Scientology - 2015-06-26
Actress Carmen Llywelyn spent eight years immersed in the Church of Scientology. Since leaving, she penned an essay for Gawker entitled "Why I Left Scientology," that details her troubling history with the religion.
"The reality of Scientology is deceptively hidden and cleverly disguised. When I look at Scientology today, I have to forgive myself for not seeing through the manipulation sooner," she writes. "It hasn't been easy, but I've realized that the religion is built on a foundation of violence."
Carmen's ex-husband, actor Jason Lee (My Name is Earl, anyone?) introduced her to the church.
