Doing something about the Aftermath

Leah Remini and Mike Rinder ended their series season finale with them together in New York about to meet attorneys to discuss Scientology. Remini indicated they’re consulting attorneys because she “can’t let the church continue to abuse people and take their money and their lives.” She mentioned her determination that the Scientologists not “get away […]

Open listing for Scientologists: What do you fake?

In my letter to Mike Rinder on the 7th1, I observed that he had faked compassion for decades. I hoped that his very recent statement that he had finally actually acquired it wasn’t false. All the fakery I found in Hubbard, what I experienced in Scientology, and fakery I continue to confront through, among other […]

Open letter to Mike Rinder: What’s lacking now?

Dear Mike: A couple of days ago I saw a video of you from the Scientology the Aftermath project where you said, obviously quite recently, that you had finally lost your lack of compassion. As you can imagine, this is important to me because it has been your lack of compassion that has allowed you […]

Below are links to some of the materials that inform […]

Excusing Mike Rinder

CommunicatorIC;1125734: I never suggested that Gerry should stop wanting Mike Rinder to “tell the truth.” On the contrary, what I said was completely consistent with Gerry continuing to want Mike Rinder to “tell the truth.”  I said, “If Gerry didn’t like that, I would completely understand.” I simply explained why it was unlikely to happen, […]

An escape for the ages

It was thirty-five years ago today, I blew the cult and there was hell to pay. I was thirty-five. Now over half my life I’ve been fair game. I wrote this “official note of resignation” to Barbara DeCelle, my org board senior, knowing she would get it to “the proper person:” http://gerryarmstrong.ca/ga/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Letter-from-GA-to-Barbara-1981-12-12.pdf The handwritten words […]

No, do it Mike Rinder. Tell the truth.

Reaching Mike Rinder

This brief email exchange I had with Mike Rinder in April 2014 is helpful for understanding the history and current state of our relationship. On April 4, 2014, I emailed Mike Rinder: Dear Mike: You doubtlessly already know all this, and for repeating myself I apologize. Graham Berry posted on Facebook about you and Marty […]

Goodbugger

Jon Atack asked if I would write down something about the name “Jonnie Goodbugger” that Omar Garrison came up with for L. Ron Hubbard. Atack spelled it Johnny Goodbugger, but I believe it should be Jonnie, after Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. In October 1980, right after Garrison signed his contract to write the LRH biography, I […]
