F0.png Critical Q&A #128 October 1, 2017, Chris Shelton, Critical Thinker at Large

The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:

(1) My friend and I have been watching Leah Remini's show on A&E. My friend happens to have a niece attending the Delphi School in Oregon. My friend got concerned after watching the show and finding out that kids have to sign a billion year contract. She was sure that it didn't apply to her niece. She called the school and has found out that her niece has already signed!!! What we don't understand is that her niece has been going to Delphi AND has been on anti-phychotic drugs for many years. We started doing research and it looks like you have to "qualify" to sign the contract. The strongest of these qualifications is that you have not taken any pharmaceutical drugs. My friend's niece dropped a bombshell by telling my friend that she had stopped taking all of her drugs 6 months ago. We are wondering if it had something to do with signing the contract. We are kinda of worried because she is talking about becoming emancipated and joining the Sea Org (she is 15). Do you think she is eligible to sign the contract? Thanks for any info you could send our way!

(2) Watching you grow emotionally and deal with hard truths is really humbling and inspiring. Hard enough to do in general, but to do so publicly is really admirable. I am all for ending Scientology, but my fear is that DM will get away with plenty of money and parishioners will be left bereft and without psychological care. Do you think it would better to have a quick end or would a more gradual phasing out be better overall for the people still involved?
