    I joined the Sea Organization 25 years ago and majority of my Sea Org career has been a staff member in Golden Era Productions. I can tell you, without a doubt, being in the Sea Org has been the most rewarding experience Ive ever had in my entire life. I work directly with many people on a daily basis and I help them to become competent at doing their jobs and handling their lives. Ive seen direct results from standard application of Scientology technology. The pleasant feeling I experience on a daily basis, from seeing someone in front of you change for the better and able to handle life through standard Scientology technology, is something I will not trade for anything else. This is why Ive dedicated my life to the Sea Org and I am a proud to be a staff member of this powerful organization.”L.H.

    I was also in the Sea Org (for two years.)

    When I joined there was no mention of any pay or how wonderful the quarters were whatsoever, nor did I expect or request anything about either.

    The conditions for becoming a staff member are similar to joining a monastery -- one only joins because he believes in what that group are doing, not to live like you're famous.

    This guy changed his mind. He is entitled to that. That decision is his to live with or be a putz and blame someone else for his past choices.

    I can see him explaining why he doesn't make any money to his wife: "It's the economy dear! I'm just a putz and can't do anything of any value!"

    Poor fool...

    Separate out what the media wants you to believe from what you can observe yourself. You don't have to "believe" in Scientology to see that they are a caring group of people. Members of the Sea Org consistently give freely of their time in relief efforts (Haiti, the Indonesian tsunami, 911), anti-drug campaigns, literacy campaigns and criminal reform. They do it because it is part of their religious beliefs and part of the Scientology religion to help make a better world for all of us to live in. Go take a look for yourself.

    I wonder what this world would be like today if it weren't for religious orders through the ages. Who do you think formed the great universities of Europe that kept knowledge alive through the dark ages--Oxford, Cambridge, the Sorbonne. How about the work of Francis of Assisi? What about Mother Theresa? I am not comparing Sea Org members to these orders as Sea Org members live in modern times and do not go without. But as far as dedication and service, are you really saying you think we sholuld do away with religious orders?
