I totally believe this story, and feel profoundly sorry for this 19 year old boy. He was in way over his head. (talk)20:27, 4 July 2012

Publish everything you can about this dangerous organization and other like cults. I feel that they even undermine democracy and freedom with their narrow view of the world with their radical nonsense ideas. (talk)17:48, 15 January 2012

Great article. The Church of Scientology does indeed do the manipulative things mentioned. I've seen a lot worse and the retaliation of the church when you find out the truth and want to leave is relentless. This organization is NOT a religion. It doesn't let people grow spiritually, it actually does the exact opposite. (talk)00:25, 15 November 2011

A page of hate for a good religion. (talk)00:17, 11 October 2010

Tell us where you can see any hate in the article? Because all I can see is the truth.

this was never meant to be a religion!a science fiction writer wrote a book about a billion year old baddie locked up for millions of years and the good guys hiding out by magic on primitive planet earth.Not even a good book when it first came out,what saddies took it for real?The same ones that followed lobsang rampa,the pompy plumber?the latest ones,the blood and the cross wallies!grow up stop reading fairy-tales and get off the games pages of the net.

Exactly! How any rational person could believe their CRAP is beyond me. It is not a religion, period. It should not be given Fed Tax Exemption. The whole ideology is based upon Science Fiction.....and, as you say, not even good fiction to start with! (talk)21:50, 7 December 2010

Incredibly confusing... I'm under the impression after reading this article that the Scientology organization itself arrested Daniel for trying to leave

it is good to see cults like this exposed for what they really are. (talk)09:11, 12 October 2010

Thank you.

Good article

I hadn't heard about this, despite reading through many MSM news sites on a daily basis. Maybe I just missed this story, or maybe it wasn't extensively covered. Either way, thanks for the article! I'm curious as to how this is going to turn out. I've read in the past that the Church of Scientology goes far, far out of its way to recruit high ranking members of law enforcement. I wonder if any Scientology "agents" in the LA Sheriff's Office nudged these charges along?

Thanks very much for your kind comments about the article! :) As for your last query, do a Google search for: "Lee Baca" and "Scientology". Let me know what you think of the research found, from those results. ;)

Very possible. I note that we don't yet seem to know the details of the case against him; if we're looking at a case where the stuff was mailed back unrecorded (whatever version of signed-for mail the USPS uses) then it could boil down to his word versus the cult's.

You are welcome. :)
