When Scientology has you dividing up funerals because family never really matters - 2019-07-10
"Wait, mom, you want me to do what now?" I asked her. She was sitting across from me, pen and paper at hand. I had been under 24 hours watch for three months. I didn't know it at the time, but I was about to be let free. It was May 2004.
Some background information: I had been in Scientology for 32 years, 17 in the Sea Org. After many years of quietly questioning it, I finally had enough and knew I wanted out. I got myself busted off my post and put on decks, where I was under 24 hour watch while getting interrogations. My mom and I both already knew an SP declare was approved up the Scientology channels, and that was to be my fate.
And so she explained it again. "My parents are getting up there in years. Since you are getting SP declared, and I am disconnecting from you, we need to work out which funerals you go to and which funerals I will go to."
