I'm watching Leah Remini's show and I'm fascinated by Mike Rinder. He caused a lot of hardship to a lot of people during his time in the "church" and I think it's great that he's using the show (and his blog) to right some of those wrongs. And from what I read in Leah's book, he justified a lot of his actions saying he was using "policy". It's clear that he was brainwashed, lied to, and abused, for decades. He was clearly a victim, but does that excuse his past actions? I'd love to know what you guys think. Which brings me to question #2 - if Mike's a victim, is TC a victim too? From all accounts, TC sounds pretty unhinged - yelling, bizarre behavior, alleged physical brutality, egomania, the whole works. But is he just a victim of the church too, and brainwashed into thinking his behavior is acceptable because he's clearing the planet?
