If you are considering taking part in Scientology, taking courses or joining staff, ask Wendy's Questions first. What do you have to lose by asking your Scientology contact a few questions?
Question 1: "How long have you been involved in Scientology?"
Question 2: "Are you trying to recruit me into any type of organization?"
Question 3: "Can you tell me the names of all the other organizations that are affiliated with this group?"
Question 4: "Who is the top leader? What are his background and qualifications? Does he have a criminal record?"
Question 5: "What does your group believe?"
Question 6: "Does your group believe that the ends justify the means? Is deception allowed in certain circumstances?"
Question 7: "What are members expected to do when they join? Do I have to quit school or work, donate my money and property, or cut myself off from family members or friends who might oppose my membership?"
Question 8: "Is your group considered to be controversial by anyone? If people are critical of your group, what are their main objectives?"
Question 9: "How do you feel about former members of your group? Have you ever sat down to speak with a former member to find out why he left the group? If not, why not? Does your group impose restrictions on communicating with former members?"
Question 10: "What are the three things you like least about the group and the leader?"
