  • It's called a freeloader dept. Sea Org & non sea org staff. I remember no pay or at best $0.35 for the month.

  • 01:12 as long as they WANT to work or as long as they HAVE to work to get the job done. Man this thing is dying a rapid death.

  • Usual half-baked version from the mainstream-media.  They wouldn't know a story if it moved in with them and started to share the rent. 

  • @1:10 — Tommy Davis is not a good liar. When asked why Sea Org members are forced for work 100 hour weeks, he stumbles and stutters and says that they "choose" to do it "voluntarily" because they love serving their "church" so much. And of course anyone who disagrees with their cult tactics is a LIAR. Uh huh.

  • @mackiesyotub mr. rinder for years had the same appearences on camera , denying all alegations of abuse until he himself had enough of the pounding he got over the years from miscaviage. That is why I wrote that I cant wait until tommy davis hits the fan. (if you really want to know the scoop you have to watch all of you tube)

  • saw rinder going down and I'm eagerly waiting for this guy to hit the fan…mind you , once they come out of that tube I sort of feel sorry for them because they're just like you and me again….

  • Well Tommy Davis is right when he say there are members who willing are working because they are dedicated to scientology, thats not untrue.

  • Ha! Damn right about Sea Org not expecting minimum wage…more like a slap in the face or gut check by their midget leader, "Slappy" Miscavige.

  • 1:07-1:16
    Reporter: "But are you also expected to work 100 hours a week?"
    Tommy Davis: "Umm…uh…tsss…y'know…mmm, blurgh **mental short circuit** Staff of the church work as long as they want to work to get their job done"

    I think the general public is smart enough to figure out who's got the credibility issues.

  • James Kinnear says:

    Look at the Catholic Church, they at least have eventually taken responsibility for past indiscretions and have apologized to those victims.
    I can't see Scientology ever apologizing.

  • @4aworldofpain
    Just like every religion…
    No really you prove them wrong they just reply
    "Nope you are lying and that did not happen!"
    while plugging their ears.
