Paul Haggis interview: 'I've seen Scientology ruin people' - 2014-11-09
A few days after sending his resignation letter, Haggis returned home from work to find nine or 10 Scientology members standing in his front garden, waiting to talk to him. In the days that followed, more church officials and members visited his office. As he told The New Yorker magazine, these officials became "more livid and irrational" as he refused to be persuaded out of his stance.
He was also "trolled" online.
"I know what they do online," he says. "I've seen them attack others under false names, try to discredit them, ruin their careers. And I've heard about these two people who work in the basement of Special Affairs there and they're just online all day at their computers, going on to various blogs, commenting on people's lives and things they do.
