It's official. Scientology is actively stalking me down.

To start, my stepfather was a contributing minister of Scientology. A mathematician and computer geek.

For the last year I started receiving letters from the Church Of Scientology. Once a month then 2 a week.


The Sacramento address is an organization I attended back in 1992. A quick Public relations class I attended after highschool. My Stepfather insisted I take it before college... I did in Sacramento.

Long story short. I lived In 8 different addresses since then. That was northern California, I'm in Pennsylvania now. I grilled my stepfather over this. He's a straight forward guy. He denied giving my address.


So... how did they find me?


I believe my stepfather... any better answers? Not completely scared. I'm sincerely pissed off. And it's hard to make me really mad.

Very creepy!! my money is on the stepdad. Having said that..who knows what databases anyone in that cult might have access to. Weird the interest in you despite no communication with them since 92.

Are they getting desperate for new blood, and contacting anyone who they have any records on. Or, the stepdad?

The man has never not told the truth.
Now it feels too coincidental. I stand 7 inches over him, I gave him the look. He was sincere. He's been in my life since 1975, and we have a bond. He's perplexed too.

I need to address that he too has started distancing from the Church in the past 4 years. He does not volunteer locally.

I've met good people within, there feels to be a section though.

Proceed with trepidation. 😐

I knew a guy in the Church of Dianetics ( yep we have that here in Bremerton), he told me that they would pay the USPS for mailing lists when they were hurting for people. The guy moved on to Scientology and tried to recruit me so I stopped talking to him. At the time I didn't realize that the two groups were the same thing, but I noticed that as a Scientologist he was more aggressive at recruiting people than he was at the CoD.

So they may have just gotten your name and address that way. I wouldn't worry about it unless you start having strangely attractive people hitting on you at weird locations (like stores, gas stations, those kind of places). The CoS loves there honey pots.

Hmm, well if your gut says he is being honest, you follow your gut. That makes the whole thing weird though.

I think maybe, what has happened with your SD, moving away from them, may be a trend.
Due to a lot of unflattering attention in the last few years, they could be trying to reel in anyone who attended any of their events or courses.

I wonder if you could file a cease and desist?

Very odd. I have a suspicion that they are tracking something like your credit card statements or maybe your credit report. There's also the possibility they have people in the DMV and can follow where your license or cars are registered - or even where your insurance policies are being sent. I wouldn't be surprised if cell phone companies or ISP's sell data like this to some "authorized" advertisers and I would expect Scientology to find a way to make it on these lists.

You stand seven inches over him and give him the look and you expect him to tell you anything you don’t want to hear?

Scientology does have a bad reputation in breaking up families and exploiting its workers. Those at the top do quite well as they charge heaps for each book in their library.

Anyone who claims to be a sole authority of god has lost the plot in my book. God is within each and everyone of us, if we bother to look.

We had an incident. Yes I have a respect as do he.

Break it down. I reached the age he understood I wasn't buying it. He understood I was becoming me. Mutual respect. No hands on violence. Words only. No profanity.

He took care of us...

I targeted him because he introduced us to Scientology. He was a believer. And I believe him, he's not involved in my recent finding from the Church Of Scientology.

I was a bastard about interrogating him. He had nothing to do with any of this.
This is souly on Scientology finding me.

I wasn’t really suggesting that he was just found it funny because of your inference it painted a funny picture to me had to illustrate how that might not be the best way to get the truth out of someone.

The man has way more brains than I... I needed a Braun type beat down. But no, he was really being honest.

We really do love each other. He was telling the truth.

I'm going to play Devils advocate.

In a day in age where the post office sends solicitation upon address change, cell phone providers sell our numbers and information, ISP's sell browsing history, ect. Ad nauseum... It could be the above listed or someone handed a list of names of old members, like a party or religion reaching out to those who requested to be taken off the mailing list. Cold calling if you will. Maybe not even nefarious, just someone doing their job, not thinking about the possibility of deep seeded resentment of the recipient.

That said, your gut would give better debate than hypothetical. Intuition in situations like this is invaluable.

At the end of the day though I suppose you'll have to balance drawing a line in the sand while preserving relationships. And that's a difficult dance.

I've had to stress to loved ones before that differences in ideology can be in coexistence so long as they respect that difference. I've had one operate under the platform their walk of life was more important than the walk I sought for myself. Him and I no longer talk. I regret that sincerely, but I'm too stubborn to partition my resolve.

I suppose many times we're faced with preservation of self, or preservation of love/relationships. I'd be hard pressed to judge any soul for the decision they make in an ultimate compromise, or lack there of.

Cheers friend , may you find peace.

Bigburgh, now is the time to act.

Lord Xenu's resistance has been forming for some time now.

Meet me and Justice Beaver by the bike racks after school.





Seriously, your uncle is a liar, Scientology is like heroin for these idiots and they will lie for it.

Just throw away their junk mail and relish the fact that every letter is money out of their pockets.
