The Bill You Get When You Leave Scientology

When Astra Woodcraft was seven years old, she became indoctrinated by the Church of Scientology through Sea Org, the unit of the church that Tom Cruise reportedly wants six-year-old Suri to join. Woodcraft tells The Daily Beast all the horrible things that she had to endure, including deciding to get pregnant at the age of 17 so the church would disown her. When she was finally “routed out,” the church gave her a bill for $89,000 for “classes” she had taken at Sea Org, including $600 for a “cleaning course” which was basically sweeping and scrubbing toilets in the compound she was forced to live in. I hope Suri thanks Katie Holmes when she gets older and realizes the massive bullet she’s dodging right now.
