A woman who was a member of the Church of Scientology for seven years and who has now filed a $200 million class action suit against the church, said of her experience that 'it was a whole menagerie of lies.'

Lavenda Van Schaick, a 29-year-old native of Texas who joined the church in Las Vegas, recited a list of experiences that her attorney, Michael Flynn, said, can only be described as 'Orweilian,' referring to George Orwell's depiction of a future society in the novel "1984" in which suspicion and paranoia are fostered by the state and in which words are used to conceal rather than to reveal.
