Scientologists Allegedly Try to Recruit People by Pinching Them

Posted by Paul Constant on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 at 1:29 PM

Over the weekend, the Daily Mail published a great little pulpy tell-all written by a woman who spent July 4th at a large Scientology compound in Florida that's billed as ‘the Friendliest Place in the Whole World.' Here's the lede:

I'd been pinched – hard – in some kind of strange lie-detector test and seen rooms where people went to be ‘purified’.

I’d spent an hour subjected to a gruelling and invasive ‘personality’ test and revealed my deepest inner thoughts as if hypnotised.

I’d also been invited to cross the Bridge To Total Freedom – but, in a panic, instead I found myself running away from Scientology as fast as I could – after just a day as a guest of the controversial religion.

Go read the whole thing, please.
