Yesterday, the L.A. branch of the Center For Inquiry held a press conference in which multiple former members of $cientology spoke out about the cult’s abuses. And of course when asked to comment, Tommy Davis gave all the standard lines about how he doesn’t know what any of these people are talking about, that they’re making it all up to get attention, and that people should check $cientology out themselves to find out. Riiight. And you shouldn’t knock being shot in the head until you’ve tried it either. The one interesting thing about Davis’ response was that he admitted that employees are not paid and are “volunteers,” precisely what one former member at the press conference (as well as many others over the years) claimed was part of the manipulation that the cult uses to avoid paying its employees. But no one has the right to volunteer themselves into slavery.
