Scientology ripped apart his family, but this former member explains why he doesn't fight it - 2020-01-14
On January 4, Skip Young wrote for us an account of his attempt to reconnect with the grown daughters who have disconnected from him after he left Scientology. Last week we published one response we received after Skip's piece, and that was Phil Jones writing about his own attempts to defeat Scientology's policy and reconnect with his son and daughter. We also received a very different kind of response from another former member of the Church of Scientology. We thought you'd want to see it and respond to it.
I have lived all my life (68 years) in Toronto, Canada. I began my first course in Scientology (HQS) on 31 August 1973. I was declared suppressive and expelled on 31 August 2011. It was 38 years, to the day.
Since my expulsion I have neither spoken to nor heard from my ex wife of 26 years (we were divorced in 2005), my son (now 40), or my daughter (now 37).
