Inside Scientology… And Escaping The Witnesses

67

A 2015 Channel 5 documentary which tells the stories of people who have escaped from religious cults including The Church of Scientology and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Perhaps most shocking was the story of Karen Morgan, an ex Jehovah’s Witness who was raised in the church but was sexually abused by one of the church elders. When she plucked up the courage to report the abuse to other elders she was accused of lying and was forced out of the church.

Also featuring is Sam Domingo, a woman who married a Scientologist and then spent 20 years as a member of the church. She tells the story of her harsh living conditions, a forced abortion and how severe punishments for non-conformity left her disillusioned enough to convince her to eventually leave the church.
