Revision as of 10:12, March 5, 2018

This content originated on WhyWeProtest forums. Click here to see the original thread.


The following is a list of people that have left the official Church of Scientology organization and have spoken out publicly against it. Although some of them still believe in the validity of the core precepts and practice them outside of the Church of Scientology, all of them have denounced the legitimacy of the organization itself. The names are listed alphabetically by last name. As of the last count, there are 2853 names on this list.


The purpose of this list is to give courage to others who are still in to finally leave, or those who have already left to speak out. Also, perhaps those that are still in may recognize a name they may have known before, especially senior and important members, and are unaware they have left. The extensiveness of this list demonstrates that there is a significant problem with organized Scientology, and counters all the claims by their Office of Special Affairs (OSA) in the media that so-called "disgruntled ex-members" or "defrocked apostates" are only a "small group", a "tiny clique of expelled former staffers" or a "handful" in number.

Names with a 💔 in their entry also spoke out about being affected by Scientology's Disconnection Policy. Tapping or clicking on any broken hearts takes you to the specific list of Disconnection stories.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Please verify all names before adding! This means finding a form of media where a person has spoken out against the Church of Scientology (CoS), such as news interviews, books, articles, forums, or personal websites. See a glossary of abbreviations found in this list These are real people, and if there are incorrect results in google, it can affect them directly. Also, if available, please provide information about the number of years in, position in Scientology/levels achieved, and location. See the chart for where Clear/OT levels are on the "Bridge to Total Freedom"


This is a work in progress. If anyone can help disprove any of these names, or fill in blanks (i.e. how long they were in, their position, location, etc), your help would be much appreciated. When put all together, it should act as a compelling preponderance of evidence against the legitimacy of organized Scientology.


To those who are still in: realize that all of these people have left, and you can too. There are thousands more who left, and have yet to come forward to tell their story, and there are also hundreds more who spoke out who did not want their names known. We hope that the courage of those named here empowers more people to come forward with their stories of abuse to ultimately prevent such abuses from ever taking place again.
