Aaron Smith-Levin and Nick Lister have released the second of their clips for their "Growing Up in Scientology" video series, and it's another jaw-dropper.

Lister was talked about in Alex Gibney's documentary Going Clear. He's the son of Sara Goldberg, who was forced by the Church of Scientology to choose between her son Nick and her daughter Ashley. Nick had been kicked out of the church, and by sticking by him, Sara herself was kicked out ("declared a suppressive person") and then her daughter had no choice but to "disconnect" from the two of them in order to remain in the church.

Nick's story is much more complex than what was relayed in the film, as he's beginning to explain in these clips. In this segment, he talks about trying to get back into Scientology's good graces by doing his "A to E steps" — programmed measures of contrition that are supposed to allow a fallen member to regain his or her status. But Lister found that doing these steps weren't enough.
