HI, after having been on this board for some months now posting as Illegal Alien the time has come for me to introduce myself.
My name is Adrian Kelsey a South African currently living in Australia.
About two weeks ago I found through the net an old friend who had gotten out of Scientology and was out spoken about Church Management.
It was really awesome to find somebody I actually knew from years ago who has seen through the lies of Scientology and we got chatting. To have a face behind the name was really cool.
Due to this I decided I would post my real name as I am sure there are others out there who know me and I them and I think this makes us stronger as a group, you know somebody may say "Holy crap I know him, I wounder what happened" or something like that and that may start them really looking.
Carmel, Emma and all those working with the Senator all I can say is
I was in the SO with you in SA. I was around when you and Lesley got married. I was in treasury and then later went into HCO. I have read your story and I am saddened by your experience! I have recently "exposed" myself to reading the data on the internet, and the "illegal" sites etc. Its been a horrible wake-up call that we have followed this "religion" blindly, whilst emptying our pockets. I hope you are in contact with your parents, whom I believer are living in CT with your brother.
