We've been telling you for the past year about the large number of longtime Scientologists who are walking away from their church. It seems like nearly every week we hear about someone like Dave Fagen who gives up after years of dedication because of the continuing crisis over David Miscavige's leadership.

One thing about people who have been in Scientology for so long is that they tend to be conditioned to spend huge amounts of money for L. Ron Hubbard's "technology" -- counseling at the upper levels (called "auditing") can reach $1,000 an hour. In order to keep that cash coming in, the church encourages members to keep large sums of money on account.

When they leave, ex-Scientologists often find that one of the challenges facing them is how to get back the money they didn't get around to using for services. And with so many people leaving, that's not only becoming a bigger problem for them, but also for the church, which naturally doesn't want to lose all that cash.
