Call me: Parents plea for Scientologist family members to break silence - 2016-04-12
Family members of Scientologists are fighting to get their loved ones back, one billboard at a time. A billboard in Los Angeles reads: "To my loved one in Scientology … call me." Now Scientology leaders are firing back against the allegations.
There are over 9,000 billboards in Los Angeles, but this one stands out. Instead of advertising plastic surgery or DUI attorneys, this display was purchased to reunite families torn apart by Scientology.
Phil and Willie Jones are ex-Scientologists who joined the church in their late teens. They estimate that they gave over $150,000 to the controversial church, but they also gave even more: their children. Their son and daughter, Michael and Emily Jones, are members of the Sea Org – a billion-year commitment according to the religion, requiring 100 hour work weeks and a wage of 10 cents an hour, according to Raw Story.
