What happens when doing a "promo run"? Is it like passing out flyers or postcards and other promotional material and talking with people, having the goal of getting them to come into the Org as new customers? :confused2:

You can read more about him and me in the thread 'Peter Greene's children'. I am confused about Lauri Wood. In his debriefing Peter says she was Doran's daughter, but was she his too, and therefore my sister? Also, did he and Doran have any other children?
All the Mission Holders were womanizers.Peter liked to flirt with the ladies, too. Stacy Young gave him a fat lip.
"There was rampant sexual harassment of the women by the mission holder, Peter Greene. He locked me in his office and grabbed me, and I punched him on the lip and got out of there, furious."
Peter was later declared. Guess the cult missed this on their Narco page: http://www.narconon.org/history/1967/el-saguaro-newspaper-features-narconon.html
Yes, good info Christopher . . .That is an amazing question Roger. Peter Greene is a common enough name, but I don't think Doran is. My father wrote to a mutual friend of his and my Mother's in 1960, seeking reconnection, which my Mother furiously refused, but I was told he was based in Durban, South Africa in those days. I read somewhere he was accused of a lot of sexual harassment, and that Ron Hubbard temporarily sacked him (he headed up the entire 'work' in South Africa then) and reinstated him, saying 'when I chop heads off, I sew them back on again'. After that the trail disappeared for me until his debriefing which is at the start of this thread, (around 1980),he was made to leave the 'church', but continued to believe until his and Doran's death in 1989. Someone named Martin McArthur, who said he was/is a grandson of both of them, put up a web page, long since disappeared, asking for any information around their deaths, which he held to have been most likely murder, by the 'church'. I e mailed him, just to introduce myself, as he either is/was my nephew or was claiming to be; no reply. I wonder, is my enquiry stirring any dangerous, er, he was pretty high up, he was ousted by power struggles, it was a long time ago; I would have thought my questions had no potential harm attached to them, but, knowing Scientology's reputation, maybe I have been a bit naive? I don't know. All I can do is state what little I have learned, whether from people who knew him, or web searches.
As was Hubbard in his earlier days.All the Mission Holders were womanizers.
In Scientology, "entheta" (short for "enturbulated theta") is a term used to describe viewpoints hostile to Scientology, or data which negatively reflects on Scientology. When presented with an article having negative information about Scientology, the Scientologist will say "that's entheta", as a way to dismiss the information without having to consider whether or not it might be true. Something like how in current society labeling something "racist", "sexist", etc can be used to discount something without having to examine it.Likely enough Enthetan; my mum acknowledged he had the looks, at least. Thetan was a title of high attainment in their programma wasn't it? Is your nic linked to that in any way?
Are RogerB and strativarius one and the same person? No, that wouldn't be allowed on this MB anyway. I replied to you on his behalf as he doesn't seem to be around at the moment.Yes of course I've heard of it, not the sort of place name you'd associate with anything interesting; but are Roger and Strad one and the same, or old friends, from the UK or what? Not that my nosiness is less culpable than anybody else's; but give me a mystery, i'll pursue it.
On comments by people other than you, you should see a list of symbols in the lower right. The first is a smiley-face with sun-glasses, followed by a star and then a valentines heart. The eighth symbol in the list is "poop".Strat, reply is easy to see,, but what pile of poo?
