When it comes to understanding cult-like religions, few stories are more riveting than from those who have left Scientology.
Charles Jeronimo joins World Cult Watch’s host Rob Robinson to share his remembrances of a long, and varied history with the “Church” of Scientology. Charles was in what is known as Scientologys upper caste, the Sea Organization, at the time when they were working on their worldwide computerization project called “Incomm.”
Charles has met many fascinating people in Scientology and has a lot of stories to tell.
World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support.
Bob runs the “World Cult Watch” website, offering insight and hard-hitting stories about the teachings of various abusive and authoritarian cults. In his show and website, Rob also offers comfort for ex-cult members struggling with the guilt, grief, anger and other emotions associated with spiritual abuse.

Enlightenment: The "full comprehension of a situation". It translates several Buddhist terms and concepts, most totably bodhi, kensho and satori. Related terms from Asian religions are moksh (liberation) in Hinduism and Kevala Jnana in Jainism. In Christianity, the word "enlightenment" is rarely used, except to refer to the Age of Enlightenment.
Nirvana: A transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.
Scientology: L. Ron Hubbard's successor of Dianetics. Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is auditing, in which practitioners re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects. Auditing sessions are available to members on a fee-for-service basis, described as a “fixed donation.” Scientology is often characterized as a cult and it has faced harsh scrutiny for many of its practices which, critics contend, include brainwashing and routinely defrauding its members, and harassing its critics. Scientologists have argued that theirs is a genuine religious movement that has been misrepresented, maligned and persecuted. Controversy has focused on Scientology’s belief that souls reincarnate and have lived on other planets before living on Earth, and that some of the related teachings are not revealed to practitioners until they have paid thousands of dollars to the Church of Scientology. Scientologists believe that psychiatry is destructive.
I recently wrote and published the book "Have You Told All? Inside My Time with Narconon and Scientology". It covers in detail many of the experiences I had while being a part of that group for 12 years and what happened after I found out the truth and decided to speak up. This show will discuss some of the points covered in the book as well as take a look at further developments regarding Narconon, such as ongoing lawsuits, pending legislation, counselor certifications a
Why would ordinary people risk everything to spend their lives protesting cults like Scientology? In this episode of World Cult Watch, host Rob Robinson and his guests look at Scientology and some of its dangerous practices that make people say that this is a “religion” with practices that can no longer be tolerated.
Rob’s guests, David Love and Burt Leahy, are familiar with Narconon and Scientology. They say that their lives were negatively impacted by Scientology’s practices of fair gaming, disconnection and black public relations. Nowadays, Love and Leahy are fighting back with a successful tour called the “Suppressa Palooza Tour.”

This month’s “X-Women” show features Pete Griffiths, who joins host Colleen Sautez live from Ireland. Pete is well known in ex-Scientology circles, blogging at Ex-Scientologists Ireland and actively participating in protests.
According to the Ex-Scientologists Ireland website, Griffiths ran a mission in Cumbria, in northern England, winning a competition between missions for highest recruitment and sales for his division. His weekly figures eventually petered out. It wasn’t until he heard of a protest in 2008 that he looked into Scientology online and became disillusioned and angry, burning any Scientology stuff he had in a bonfire. Learn more about Pete’s fascinating story and his work in Ireland in this month’s X-Women show. Please visit GodDiscussion.net for links and more information and a schedule of upcoming shows.
The media's fascination with Scientology is reminscent of the "rubber neck" mentality associated with a fatal accident on the freeway: no one wants to look for the longest time, but suddenly all the awful details are right there in front of you and you can't stop looking. Space aliens, E-meters, strange military-like installations called Sea Org, wife try-outs for Tom Cruise...it's a bizarre reality for thousands of people and it's taken root in the very visible

A new movie featuring Will Smith and his son is out in theaters named, "After Earth." It contains many Scientology messages. Our pop culture is greatly influenced by Scientology and its various practices of mind control using celebrities as a top recruitment source. What is Scientology and how is it working to bring together Lucifer's global government? L Ron Hubbard took up the mantle of Aleister Crowley and proclaimed, "No doubt you are familiar with the Revelations section of the Bible where various events are predicted. Also mentioned is a brief period of time in which the arch-enemy of Christ, referred to as the anti-Christ, will reign and his opinions will have sway ... this anti-Christ represents the forces of Lucifer (literally, the "light-bearer" or "light-bringer"), Lucifer being a mythical representation of the forces of enlightenment.... My mission could be said to fulfill the Biblical promise represented by this brief anti-Christ period."
That and the news of the day! Conservative libertarian irreverent commentary on the current events in news and politics with a whole lot of pulling back the curtain to reveal the "wizards" behind it all!
For outsiders, the Church of Scientology is a mysterious organization that seems to be getting a lot of negative attention in the media. For former members, it can represent an ongoing nightmare. Our “X-Women” show features brave women who have come out publically and anonymously to share what happened in the church and why they left. These “X-Women” speak out for human rights, despite potential lawsuits or other problems. From our international panel of ex-
Sanctions imposed by a Georgia judge have pushed questions about Narconon, the drug rehab service linked to the Church of Scientology, back into the limelight. Narconon’s website boasts, “Thousands of people have successfully completed Narconon drug rehabilitation programs and, unlike many other alcohol and drug treatment methods, the vast majority of graduates go on to live stable, ethical, productive, drug-free lives. Our success rate is second to none.” Not everyone agrees
