In this series featuring the Old Guard Ex-Scientologist critics who Mike Rinder has fair-gamed, we turn to one Arnaldo Lerma. His Lermanet.com, was one of the websites I POURED over in 1999/2000 when I was waking up from Scientology.
I am very grateful to Arnaldo for his courage in getting that website up in the early days of the Internet, keeping it up, and enduring the legal actions and fair game that the Church of Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs – led by Mike Rinder – waged against him.
Here is a great interview with Arnie, videoed by videographer by Burt Leahy:
And in this Quora post, Arnie Lerma lists SOME the fair game actions taken against him.
And here’s a video by Mark Bunker showing Arnie Lerma getting served legal papers – originated by Mike Rinder as head of OSA – while working at the Lisa McPherson Trust in the 1990’s.
I’ve never met Arnie in person, but I have communicated with him over the Internet quite a bit.
I owe him a great deal. I would think that many Ex-Scientologists do, too – maybe even including Mike Rinder?
Possibly something for Mike Rinder to think about.
Here’s his donate button, Mike.
Hey Mike! Maybe you can send some of that Season 2 money his way.
