Yes! McCarthy. That's it. McGinley was the LRH Personal Communicator.
I just want to say your write-up and the Barnes and Peter Alexander exposure of the OT 7 sec checks was very enlightening for me when I stumbled upon them a few years ago after receiving the Debbie Cook email. Those helped me alot to loose the scientology mindset.
I do know of Jolie, although not that well.
Yes, we were still married, but I was divorcing him. He finalized the divorce in I think November/December 1983. I finished routing out in June. Went out to California to get a place set up for me and my kids - came back to get the kids and OMFG, what a HORRIBLE thing he tried to do to me, arranged by the Flag GO and that David McGinley? guy who was in Qual that had epilepsy - he was married to Linda who is now hanging out with Tom martiniano and the freezone woohoos of Target II.
Or whatever-the-frack it's called.
They stole my kids and hid them from me because - and get this - "I'm an SP" because I left the Sea Org, I wasn't even declared - and because I had no idea what Bill had done with them or where he had gone, these sickos made me think they were gone and never to be seen again.
That was one of the most horrible nights in my life ever. Imagine running frantically around the QI and EVERYONE was in on it and acted concerned and like they didn't know a thing.
You wouldn't believe what I had to do, in order to put a stop to THAT. But what I chose to do worked, and worked within 15 minutes.
But man, was I PISSED at Bill. It was years before I would talk to him after that.
Long story short - I made them give up my kids from where they had hidden them, got primary custody and got them all the way out of there.
"V" are you willing to put this in affidavit form if necessary?
Hi Gib, congratulations on your "release" from Scientology!
Do you mind if I ask you which write-up of mine that you read? Was it at our blog?
Since you were the one who stated reading her writing helped you so much, perhaps it would also help some of our Lurkers?
Plus...I'm naturally curious!!!
I believe it was part of the Barnes exposure write-up, reading their story. Definitely not your website, you and Mike.
This was two years ago.
The Barnes also did a video series, where they talked about their experiences.
Speaking of which - I miss Deb, she was a lot of fun.
