Hey everyone - meet Karen!

Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to Karen de la Carriere.

It was first bought to our attention that Karen had left the CoS in this thread on ESMB http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?t=18930 and other threads on other boards. This blog post also introduced her new status to the world http://leavingscientology.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/karen-de-la-carriere-steps-out/ and this post on Marty's blog http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/lrh-trained-class-xii-cs-karen-de-la-carrierejentzsch/

Karen & I have been chatting offline for a bit and I've found her to be a warm, generous and loving person, especially considering what DM is putting her through (and has already put her through for years). I know she wants to post here and meet some of you fine folk and share some of her experiences.

This fine lady has been in Scientology a long time and is dealing with the repercussions of leaving every day.

I'd really like it if you would welcome her with open arms and show her what a friendly and open place ESMB can be to all viewpoints.

Karen has been registered on ESMB for a little while and I hope she will post an introduction herself really soon.

SHE IS FABULOUS

The "church" just needs a little extrapush and she may be delivering it.

My impression of Karen is that the cult really made a mistake trying to fuck with her.

It is so great to see Scientologists stand up for themselves and use things like "attack, never defend" and "look, don't listen" against the cult.

There are a number of independent Scientologists who are rising up and becoming some of the most effective critics I have ever seen. They are true to the ideals of Scientology, but against the exploitation and abuse that the cult creates.

This is how Scientology will be fixed. It will be fixed by people who care enough about it, and who care enough about other Scientologists to make sure it is fixed.

Karen is one of those people.

She is part of the shining hope of Scientology.

I knew Karen when I was Flag Crew. She's a super, super gal!:thumbsup: Hope she comes around.

I've read a lot of her stuff on the Boards. I knew Da Monster personally...he's one of the reasons I walked away from Scn over 20 years ago. Karen's got real moxie.:coolwink:

She'd be welcomed with open arms and hugs on the "Apollo '73" in a heartbeat!:yes::yes::yes:

Face:)

Why the special treatment?

EDIT: Because she is a wonderful human being period

-Loves Hubbard and was on the ship (I think she is still starstruck /keeping it polite)
-Second wife of Heber
-Does incredable things to HELP and is in a POSITION to do so having the right CONNECTIONS
-Overzealus fanatical critics might be lurking in the bushes. (edit)

I recently friended Karen on Facebook. She posted her story on Marty's blog in June. She's definitely a warrior standing down Miscavige and his cronies while privately suffering from the disconnection from her & Heber's son, Alex and his pregnant wife, who are being handled by Kirsten Caetano.

I can't put my finger on it, but she looks like a very well-known actress from the past. :thumbsup:

Because Karen has been reluctant to post here and I want her to feel welcomed.

She's been there (in scio), right from the beginning, and she has a right to feel safe here now.

I certainly welcome Karen! - I might even give her some 'special treatment' by eating some of my own bile as concerns Hubbard's invaluable tech... I said 'might'! - I make no promises!

I did say it in the previous thread.. It's very good that Karen is out and talking! - Very good indeed!

:yes:

I'm glad you personally invited her Emma. I like Karen. She has a lot of courage and my hats off to her to standing up to the cult.

When I left Scn 10+ years ago, it took me almost 5 years to stop calling
myself a Scientologist. I think some of us, including myself, can be a little rough on those still in the Scn mindset. It's tough enough coming to grips with the betrayal, and waking up to what is really going on, then add to that, the vocal Scios that are now coming out under their real names and standing up, have to also deal with all the creepy evil fair game shit, then add to that coming to ESMB and having your balls busted for being a Scio and it can be too much to take.

I'm not saying we all have to be namby-pamby. I'm just saying that we should remember what it was like to first leave and have your world shaken to the core.

I think Karen can survive here. Most of us are very compassionate people.

Welcome Karen, I would love to see your feisty self post here.

Your wish is my command. Welcome Karen.

Even BLiP welcomed you! :happydance:

I'd love to see you post things here.

I worked with Alex at PAC. Cool guy!
I heard no bad word about Heber.
Your posts on Marty's blog (as War and Peace - ?), then on Jeff's and Marty's blogs as Karen #1 were very enlightening. (I posted there sometimes as "VaD(theWorldisFine)" :coolwink:

As regards to Scn in general at this point, my concerns are to get Alex and Heber out of there.
I think it's decent enough to drop other issues for me as Scn's teachings are concerned.

Please DO join.
I hope we can help you. The more people are aware, the more effective your actions will be.
I hope that WWPers will join the cause, too. Well, as WWP is concerned I might be mistaken. Yet, their primary cause is to free people of Scn... So, why would they bother you and your family?!

Sorry for the rant. :unsure:
