    Erick (de) Racedo of Nashville, TN (formerly El Cajon, CA) wants to marry Lyanna Smith, a Ukranian-born Scilon who is on staff in Burnaby, BC, Canada. They may or may hot have had a child together. Erick's mother, Susan Stuart de Racedo is on several Patrons Lists.

    Oh my!! They have only managed to get $20 in donations in 13 days, so far! They need $4,000.

    It doesn't look like this wedding was meant to be, right now. No support from anywhere or anyone except 1 sole donor. That figures.... Love is not a priority in Scientology, even though it is for these 2. To be young and in love and have dreams of the future together...

    I feel sorry for them. I wish I had some spare cash to donate but it's a tight month for me. Maybe they will renew it next month and I'll drop them a few bucks with a message. They need to see this lack of support as a clue about what Scientology is all about.

    Anyone with a few extra bucks and an opinion, here's the link again

    An ex-Scio from Nashville posted on Facebook..

    "This guy is very selfish. I know him personally. I never met the girl but this is just they're from two different countries. Figure out your life before you beg for money. I'm still surprised they are together. They acted really stupid with their relationship. This guy is 26 years old, but he acts like he's 17."

    Another critic sent him...

    This is sad. It's tempting to leave a buck and some good advice.

    It's... Pathetic! :omg:

    Isn't scientology supposed to be all about "making the able more able"?
    It just goes to show you how ingrained this "give me some money because I asked for it" mindset has become amongst scientologists.
    Sheesh! :duh:

    I think it's sad. Normal, sweet, love and hopes, but the problem is that they don't have a community that appreciates that. If they hadn't hitched their wagon to a cult, I think things would be much better for them. I don't know if they have living relatives, or maybe they're getting sucked dry from the cult ... I don't know, but if he was in a better environment, I think people would be very supportive. Having witnessed a long distance cult relationship turn into a marriage, and the train-wreck that followed, this just makes me sad all the way around. The sooner they stop thinking they are thetans, and know they are humans, the better.

    Hey, I was gonna say something like that. :roflmao:

    All scientologists nowadays are required to do "The Basics". :laugh:

    Me thinks they need dinky dictionaries, LOL, out gradients, :confused2:, superlit, fast flow, :confused2:

    This is actually a good idea. Can you imagine if a bunch of declared SP's gave the youngin's some money and when donating said they were declared SP's by the COS.

    Can one imagine what WTF's would go thru their minds? Maybe they'd realize some things, completely opposite of the BS hubbard spews. :yes:

    ESMB is more supportive than the Orgs they staff, that's for damn sure.

    It might set a bad precedent.

    The next thing the IAS would be putting up fake gofundme requests.

    I hope that their failure at this exercise isn't interpreted by their cult mindset in a way that ruins their relationship or causes them to question it.

    Here's hoping. Just as an aside, I know of several instances were scientologists banded together to help other, less fortunate, scientologists out with medical bills, living expenses, sudden setbacks etc. Scientologists; they're not all bad. :)
