Ex-Scientologist Reveals Scientology Secrets

Lauren Wagner interviews Steven Mango regarding Scientology

Hey Guys!

My friend Lauren interviewed me before we went to a private screening of My Scientology Movie a few weeks ago to learn more about the abuses I endured when I was a devoted parishioner. Yes, I have told my story within the Church of Scientology multiple times. However, many others have wanted me to tell my story in a more condensed version. 

I initially posted this 2.5 hour video on YouTube, which has received almost 3/4 of a million views:

Ever since I posted this video, I have gotten inundated with emails, calls, letters, and inquiries from others regarding my experiences inside Scientology. I was the first public member of Celebrity Centre to speak out. I was a first generation Scientologist who got roped in through acting workshops. I decided I couldn't put up with holding in the abuses I endured and witnessed and wanted to expose Scientology to the world on YouTube. Little did I know how big and how far & wide the video would spread. But, I know it's a long watch and I wanted to do a 2017 video explaining my story with my friend Lauren.

It's funny because many others, who came after me, have copied my video format when telling their story. It's OK. I'm happy to have inspired others to speak out and feel brave enough to speak out. It's just funny to me because one prominent ex-member in particular, who started speaking out after I did, posted pictures on the side of their video as I did in my documentary, and copied my format overall doing a lecture based video. I was the original, though! Let's just remember that 😋 

After I put out my video, I went silent and didn't speak out further. I did do some media appearances and talked in private ex-Scientology groups online, but I didn't make any videos for years. I felt like I said everything I needed to say in one video. But so many of you asked me to continue speaking out and telling my story. Once I saw Scientology continue to abuse others, via reports from others, and breaking apart family members of dear friends of mine, I realized I couldn't stop until something is done about this. 

Anyway, I digress...

We talk about not only what I went through in years past but where I am in 2017 and what the future holds. I also explain how I got approached to be in My Scientology Movie with the BBC and more fun stories I haven’t told before about Scientology.

I hope you guys enjoy my video! If there is anything you would like to hear me discuss on video, please leave a comment below and let me know.

Goodnight 😊
