The hassles he endured with constantly changing his phone number and being told to not let his newborn son to get vaccinations.

This bit about the vaccinations is really disturbing. Way to go scientology! It's not bad enough that most of the people in the Sea Org don't get decent health care; let's make sure they're all vulnerable to more communicable diseases, too.

Sea Org members are denied proper medical care. They are not provided health insurance, are not given sick days, and the Sea Org will not purchase their medicine for them. If a free clinic won’t provide the medicine someone needs, the Sea Org management won’t shoulder the costs. There are numerous cases of people who have become very ill in the Sea Org, or who had pre-existing medical conditions, and were not allowed to seek medical treatment.Sickness is also treated as the fault of the sick person, because Scientologists believe that the only reason someone gets sick is that they are connected to a Suppressive Person. They believe that you can decide not to get sick. So when someone becomes ill, they are treated as though they have done something wrong by not “handling” the situation.

Thanks for the Narconon Reviews plug, Brent! I also enjoyed hearing Heather's perspective on your time in scientology and how it affected her.

I got one big question for you this week Brent.

Regarding the "waking up" process many folks go thru once they get unattached from the Church of Scientology and reality sets in. The gist of those first hand accounts usually follow the pattern of - I knew it was bad for such-n-such reason(s), so I left. Then afterward I found out this, that, other revelations, etc. And suddenly -- WOW! Holy xenu it was so much worse than I ever realized!!!

I'm interested in hearing what major realizations may have hit you like a ton a bricks after you got out and reality set in?

I have a question and you don't have to answer if the question makes you uncomfortable.

Is there anything you regret about your time in scientology?

Yet another info packed podcast delivered by Brent today, under his newly rebranded "Cult Watch" podcast on spreaker.

Available here:
http://www.spreaker.com/user/wofr/anonymous

Today's topic was centered around the Anonymous protest movement and how that impacted him as a staff member before he jumped ship. Video mirror on my youtube channel coming later today.

Saturday mornings at 10:30am eastern. And be sure to hit the spreaker chat to funnel questions/comments Brent's way during the broadcast that he works into his dialogue. Damien and I usually camp out up in thar, but I am going out of town for a week and will have to catch this week's show on the after-broadcast flipside.

Last weekend, Word of Faith radio returned to the issue of cults in general. Brent did a fascinating episode with cult expert Rand Burkey who talks about his own experiences with The Way International and Brent draws some interesting comparisons to his experiences with Scientology. They also do an informative retread of the Cult Awareness Network lawsuits that eventual takedown that Randy was involved in where he reveals that he was deposed by Greta Van Sustern.

Although this broadcast was entirely dedicated to the subject of Scientology, I still found it incredibly helpful. Especially the latter half where Brent and Randy compare notes on getting cult members out of manipulative groups.

You can listen to the podcast replay here:
http://www.spreaker.com/user/wofr/word_of_faith_radio_presents_rand_burkey

Burkey is slated to be returning guest on Brent's weekly broadcasts and he is the author of book published in 2011 called "Delivered from Deception" that exams the cult experience from a Christian perspective:

Great!  I'm really glad he's back.  I hate it when the cult manages to intimidate people into silence, or complicate their lives so they just want to get away and back to normal.

Old news: Brent Whetstone's "Cult Watch" programs picked up again in January, and he's now featured on iHeart radio in addition to his spreaker channel:

http://www.iheart.com/talk/show/Word-Of-Faith-Radio/

His initial return to the interwebz airways picked up where he left off, on the subject of Scientology in general:

Cult Watch: Scientology

http://www.iheart.com/talk/show/22902886?episode_id=24728464
Cult Watch: Scientology returns for 2014 with all new info on Scientology!

Then Narconon was featured last month in two broadcasts that are well worth a listen:

Cult Watch: Scientology Narconon
Jan 18, 2014 | 26 min

http://www.iheart.com/talk/show/22902886?episode_id=24843335
We will be looking at the Scientology front group, Narconon. Narconon, the scientology answer to drug rehabilitation boasts a 70-80% success rate, while most other rehab centers only can attain a 10-20% success rate. However, a strand of recent deaths at their Oklahoma facility paint a very different picture. This is one program that you do not want to miss.
