CX, Can I give you some advice?
Look up on the internet, do some research on your own. Read the Statements from other Ex Scientologists, who have left the Cult. And whom have been
harrassed for years by officials invovled in scientology. The make up your own mind with regards to it.
The Picture a certain member is tryng to potray is not a correct one.
Hi Laura, cheers for the advice and i know what you mean, however maybe what i need to respect is that the picture that dbloch7986 is trying to
portray, works for him/her.
I have seen enough in life to know that i will never, ever join a religous group of any kind, so don't worry about me getting sucked in.
However i don't mind learning about different groups, religions etc, and i know there are good and bad experiences for everyone who is involved with
Take the Christian church, without going into detail, i detest it. Much of that is down to my experiences with family and other members that claim to
be devout Christians, when in reality they are the most horrid people you can imagine. The kind that put on their Sunday best and trot off to church,
then are attrocious the rest of the week. Even my local vicar agreed with me when i told him this.
Yet i have elderly friends who get a lot from their faith, they do not suffer because of it and they can donate what they want. Ok it's different
than the way Scientology works, but they are happy.
So yes i know there are many websites and stories that show the darker sides of Scientology, enough to put me off for life anyway, but if someone is
doing ok with it and seems to be responsible enough to handle what comes their way....then all the best to them.
It still won't convert me, but i'll listen to the good as well as the bad.
Cheers for the link though.
