Hello everyone, not so long ago I decided to take the fight against the Church to new level and decided to reveal my identity, talk to the media and write a book about my experiences in the Sea Org. My name is Peter Bonyai, and I was a Scientologist for 12 years (1995-2007), and I spent around 8 years in the Sea Org. I was a crew member in OTL Central Europe (Operations and Transport Liaision, a small continental office basically, responsible for the Central and Eastern European activities of the Church). I started out as a translator, later became the CO of OTL Training Org (kind of a Qual Sec + Services Reg in one), and then Supercargo (basically the deputy CO for internal matters, a sort of a "fixer"). I spent the last two years as the Fundraising In-Charge for the Budapest Ideal Org project. Also, if any international reges arrived (IAS - Achim Bendig or the Superpower people), I was supposed to help them out. I gave an interview recently to a Hungarian weekly magazine called Heti Válasz, and they made a 30-minute video about Scientology. I am in it, as well as "Cherrish" aka Cherrytree (her story is in this thread). You can also see an OSA lawyer in action - the attorney of the CoS has agreed to speak to the reported (as far as I know it was not coordinated with OSA Int and they were quite upset about it). The former and current Data Protection Ombudsmans also gave their viewpoint on certain issues. Here is the video (English subtitles are available): [video=youtube;tWNuOPEVk0U]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWNuOPEVk0U[/video] I also wrote a book called "Szcientológus voltam" (I was a Scientologist) which has been published and available in the bookstores in Hungary. The Church in Hungary As you might have heard, the Church of Scientology will lose its religious recognition by 1 Jan 2012 (in a month!). As far as I know they are rather busy trying to figure out how to continue their operations, but nothing is decided yet. I will post more later.
