Oh, so I wanted to be a scientologist, eh? riiiiightttt.
I guess I made a typo in my nick, it is supposed to be Wrong Place Right Time. I guess that's pretty obvious. I don't know how to change it so I will just stick with it. Anyway. Hi all. This has been an interesting time for me. It was 6.5 years ago that my father commited suicide and I tried to shelf it but that has been impossible. It was hard enough loosing my father at age 18 but for it to have been a mysterious suicide and tied to scientology, well it was a bit overwhelming, so I have tried to heal from just his death and I had not begun to look at Scientology until very recently and I have to say, this is a very serendipitous time in my life. So that explains my nick. Wrong Place- born into a scientology family Right time- the begining of the end of their terror.
I feel so sorry for everyone involved in Scientology past and present. These people think they are helping themselves and helping others and it is just not so.
the following is cut and pasted from the Founding Church in D.C.'s website. I find it rather ironic.
"As just one example of the power of a Dianetics stress test, there is the family who had suffered the traumatic loss of one of its members to suicide. The incident was so overwhelming that every person in the family was stuck in it for more than eight months. They just couldn’t overcome the burden of apathy. But after receiving their stress tests, they saw that Dianetics had the answers, and now the entire family is using Dianetics to change their lives."
ok, first of all, no shit they cannot overcome the pain of the loss. since I have been there I can tell you it is DEVESTATING. Dianetics changes lives, but is it for the better? NO. you just think it is.
our world is far from perfect. there are many abuses of other humans occuring in every walk of life. Scientology feeds on the injured, telling them they have the answers. If Scientology had the answers then why is my father dead? They fixed him alright, just like the Wicked Witch of the East said to Dorthy "I'll fix you my pretty and your little dog too!"
Sorry, I know I'm not being very linear with my story. anyway, more later................... I am collecting data....
Big Love (the only thing that will save us),
