This week we talk to a couple who experienced scientology ethics and disconnection policies up close and personal.
Katherine is the sister of William Kilmartin. William was previously married to Leah’s sister Shannon. When Leah and her family left scientology, William refused to disconnect, as a result his scientology family members all disconnected from him, including his sisters and parents. William was then officially adopted into Leah’s family and is now Leah’s adopted brother. It’s a bit unusual and sort of complicated so I wanted to make sure it was clear up front here.
After moving away from the LA area, Katherine and her husband reconnected with William and Leah last year.
