That article from Gerry is worth reading, although I wish it were shorter.
The tl;dr version, taking Gerry's personal injustices out of it, is that Scientologists, churchies and indies, love Heber as he's so much better than Tommy. But in reality, all that means is that Heber's lies come across better than Tommy's lies, due to both Heber's being better at it and the interviewers and audience being more savvy about the CofS's abuses and lies now than when Heber was spokesholing.
The amazing thing about Gerry is that he was out there in the 80's all by himself showing Hubbard's dirty laundry to the world .It took a lot of guts to do that knowing what a storm of fair gaming was on it's way . The best part was that he had the hard evidence about Hubbards fraud and was able to get it to a court and out to the public the cult has been sinking ever since .Very well done Gerry!
All power to Gerry, I fully support him in his indefatigable campaign to tell the truth.
When self-congratulating Scientologists and Indie Scientologist chatter on endlessly about each other's "INTEGRITY" and "CODE OF HONOR", the person they are really hoping and dreaming they are like is Gerry Armstrong--the same very person they endlessly dead agent and degrade.
Gerry is the "Ideal Scene" that Scientologists/Indies spend all their time giving lip service to, but when they see the real thing, they can't help themselves from attacking and trying to "shatter" him as some sort of evil SP. And why is he evil? Because he reminds them of their profound hypocrisy and support of the endless lying that is woven into the very fabric of Scientology.
Can you imagine how close to the core truth of Hubbard/Scientology Gerry must be for both CoS Scientologists AND Indie Scientologists to despise him so much?
Thanks Gerry, please know there's a lot of love and respect out here for you.
