.During what years were you a member of Scientology inc.? If you don't mind be asking.
Were you a member in the 1960s when there were numerous magazine articles exposing Scientology. All but a small number of vulnerable people recognized Scientology as a manipulative cult.
In the early 1970s numerous books appeared, exposing it further.
I quietly began backing away after Hubbard's May 1977 LSD Zombie Bulletin, and then the 1978 Dianetic Clear frenzy when I could no longer deny to myself that most Scientologists were under Hubbard's hypnotic influence.
In 1978 I started reading the works of Alesiter Crowley, and there was no turning back. I knew too much.
Were you still a Scientology member then?
During the late 1970s the Scientology's spying and dirty tricks activities were exposed, by court order, and there were many newspaper articles. Mary Sue took the rap for her husband was sent to federal prison.
Were you still a member then?
You don't have to answer, but you might ponder it.
These days are not so different. A person meets a Scientologist who he likes and the Scientologist creates a positive impression.
News stories, including - these days -on the Internet, are discounted as unreliable.
If you were a Scientologist, and ignored the archives available in libraries, and the magazines, and books, then you did the same thing.
Be as tolerant with others as you have been with yourself.
Over the years on this website, you have asked me a helluva lotta questions about what I was doing exactly in Scientology in what years. I never answer you but you keep asking. And I have no slightest interest in answering any of your unwelcome questions. What is it that you don't understand about my ignoring all your personal questions? Get a clue, dude! Get some clay or re-do your student hat at one of the Indie Scn centers, so you can figure it out.
1. The years things happened is irrelevant. Whatever magical significance. you put on the "years" feels at this point like some dimwitted attempt to do lawyerly "cross examination" so that you can later showcase your "GOTCHA!!!" moment, LOL. There is no "gotcha!" moment for me. I have already posted for a dozen years a rather voluminous number of OPED and satirical posts making it very clear what I think. The "year" something happened decades earlier is entirely unrelated to anything happening in the discussion here.
2. Your moralizing sermons to me and others of how we are supposed to respond to Indie Scientologists promoting Hubbard's hoax is beyond worn out. At this point it's entirely lame. You have crossed that line too often and in case you didn't notice it, you are now solidly getting into "CHURCH-LADY" territory. Isn't that special! LOL.
3. The lofty moral standards you feel sure you must force upon ex-scientologists and to me personally do not exist in you, as you imagine. You are not superior to anyone else on this website.
4. The Indie Scientologist that you are so worried about protecting is the one that came HERE and began labeling me and others as "low toned" and "toxic" and "pts" and "loaded with overts/crimes" and "trolls" and many other scandalously stupid recriminations. The joke is that you don't peddle your moralizing mojo to the Indie that is running sleazy cult "dead agenting" gimmicks. You instead--and very foolishly--try to throw posters on this discussion board into your "church-lady" ethics department for handling.
No thanks, here's your "Ethics Routing Form" back. Maybe if you use tone 40 8C, the Indie would like one of your routing forms. LOL
