The bit that I noticed was that you would advise someone to leave a spouse/partner when you think it is for their own good.
My questions about that are:
What is the position of "mainstream psychology" counsellors on that? Would they stop just before that line and not give the advice - but leave the person to decide whether or not they will continue a relationship which the counselor may him/herself feel is destructive?
Seems to me the person should make their own decision.
(Friends talking to friends would of course be different than a professional or semi-professional situation.)
It seems to me that you are on very shaky ground if you want to criticize disconnection (from an adult partner) as scio policy, if you advise disconnection yourself. BTW - this is just discussion in the spirit of the way you have asked for views on this.
I have just re-read your post and noticed you are talking about "spiritual" counselling/advice. Well the point about hypocrisy stands. Can't diss the scios for something you would do yourself.
The comparison with mainstream psychology, well I would want to know if it is regarded as ethical by psychologists and if not, why not? They may have views worth thinking about.
The big problem with Scientology is that any REAL Scientologist doesn't BELIEVE anything. They KNOW. There is no FAITH. Assertion of certainty is a requirement of the cult. This leaves no room for disagreement or tolerance.
RPX- A solitary is one who does not require a congregation or even another person in order to practice the ceremonies of their faith. A solitary may not have ceremonies of faith.
There is no need of a coven to support a Solitary. The faith driver is faith itself. This is not a bad thing.
My parents practiced a form of Christianity known as Congregationalism. By its very name, you understand that they believe in practicing religion in a group. But faith is always solitary and assigned to the individual that believes.
