I know for a fact if you are Bahai' in Iran, you are forced to recant and become muslim or forced into exile. Those who chose to convert to islam are ok as long as they stay muslim but if their conscience tells them they cannot stay as a muslim, they now do not have the option of simply leaving, they are murdered. I know that for a fact. My daughter was bahai for a long time and even the father of the religion was exiled and now their headquarters is in Israel.
So you think a mafioso can just say, I am retiring, see you guys later and have a good life? Why don't you try joining and then leave?
Scientology is extremely vindictive. I know this for a fact, I was privy to some very confidential writings of L Ron Hubbard himself and I can say unequiviacably the go after ex-scientologists, some of them even murdered. I myself saw one of the L Ron Grams as they called them where Hubbard talked about taking care of ex members and anyone else who went against scientology, calling it the "45 solution" This I saw with my own eyes.
