That's a pretty good summation.Gut feeling tells me its as much the sirens call of going clear coupled with the time already invested in it. I don't think most "auditors" consider the damage they may cause or believe they are ripping people off. I hold that to be more true if the person in question believes in the whole "Psych" conspiracy.
I guess that in some cases, money comes into play. I'd imagine this to be more true if, instead of getting an education, you spent your formative years in Scientology.
I think the good news is that most people don't.
Ah, tolerance.As I understand it, one of the functions of the Message Board was to be a place where such persons could "land" - and communicate - while having some doubts about parts of Scientology while still being adherents of parts of Scientology. Usually, in such an environment, people change.
The balancing act is being able to practice tolerance while maintaining the nature of the Message Board.
