    The 'way out' *is* the 'way through'.

    ...and the nearest door.

    The only *consistent* product of Scientology is 'ex scientologists'

    Yeah I bet he is.

    Gawd with the book and with Panorama about to nibble their backsides it is shaping up to be a rough month.

    I remember that she posted about this book that she was writing.

    I am glad that it is finally going to be published.

    I will buy a copy when it is available.

    I worked with Karen a couple times when she was on staff at CC. It's good to know that she got herself published.

    I pre-ordered mine. Good for stats...

    You have to give Karen credit, she does manage to profit from it all every which way.

    When she and Peter split, because he had to disconnect, she got just about everything he had worked for his whole life, to get her off his lines. Even though they had only been married a few years.

    That was a long time ago, guess that fizzled out in today's economy.

    It was her successful action to profit as a result of her connections with Scientology.

    Now she is publishing this and once again will laugh all the way to the bank.

    That's a true Matey Pirate!

    And she has all of my applause!

    Now CofS is going to be keeping tabs on Karen (and following her if they deem necessary) if they aren't already. It will smack of an FBI op.

    But I would guess that she already knew this when she decided to write the book.

    (BTW, I'd like to see the FBI shut-down the OSA as a result of some major investigations... but I'm not holding my breath.)

    Exactly Kilia! So what if she makes some money out of it. I dont know if she wrote it for personal gains or to help heal herself and help others in the process (I would believe the last one is the right one).

    Most exes write for personal healing and help others. Also, knowing the trouble she can get in doing that, knowing how management from $cientology will treat her, it takes a heck of a lot of guts doing that.

    Lets see before jumping to conclusion.


    sorry guys. I wanted to use that smiley for quite awhile.

    Hey, she may be another one able to think with the Dianetics jingle:

    "Take the motion that comes in and use it to win".

    She has a god given right to that.
