My name is Geir Isene. I was born in Oslo, Norway in the year 1966. I have been a Scientologist since 1984 and have had an enormous amount of spiritual gain from my 25 years in Scientology. I have seen similar gains in my family and friends and in countless of others I have met and helped with the teachings of Scientology. The gains are there to be had – but can be suppressed by malpractice and suppression of free will. After two years of extensive research, I have decided to leave the Church of Scientology. I am not leaving Scientology, only the church. In fact, I consider that the present management is not practicing it’s teachings, and that in order for me to continue practicing Scientology, I need to leave the church and its suppressive management. The management of Scientology is creating massive bad PR for the technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard and others. By equating the Church of Scientology with the Scientology Technology, the church is lending it’s bad PR to the technology through its oppressive acts.
I acknowledge and validate the many good staff and public Scientologists that are working assiduously to help others with Scientology. I acknowledge that great results are accomplished. It is hard work indeed. It is made harder by mismanagement.
Contrary to what we are led to believe, the church is not the fastest growing religion on earth, there are not 8 million Scientologists and the PR for Scientology is not good. It is in fact among the worst of all religions. This is not caused by “someone else”. It is caused by the church management. As one knows when studying Scientology and attaining spiritual freedom, one is causing one’s own enemies. It’s time to stop the technology of L. Ron Hubbard from being dragged down by misapplication and the ensuing bad PR. As of 2009-08-07 I am no longer a member of the Church of Scientology.
