    Default Internet Resources on Scientology for newcomers

    This list was compiled in 2007 although some areas may be outdated (for example Mike Rinder is no longer in). It contains a wealth of resources for people leaving scientology and seeking the truth of what happened to them.

    There are other sites as well now, please add to the list.
    ps Thanks Mary!

    I think some of those links are broken so if anyone wants to add to the list we can keep the OP updated.

    I've found and corrected some links, I'll work my way through it. I think the broken links are mostly from Xenu TV when the site changed.
