    I second that! :thumbsup: :clap:

    As someone who joined staff at 14, I lived through the loss of teenagehood, learning and a normal life. On behalf of the many others in this position, my hat's off to you both.

    Neo should have Braveheart under his name. Emma...well, there's things happening in this world in a big way because of you. I guess you have to stay "Administrator" though. You both have my respect and gratitude.

    Can't wait for the show. :happydance:

    Of course with caek! As much caek as you can eat!

    What do you fancy....a chocolate cake with rich frosting? a sticky date pudding with cream? a light, fruity sponge?

    You name it, you got it. :thumbsup:

    So what are your supposed crimes? What did you supposedly steal from Treasury?

    Wow, nice going guys. It sounds like it's going to be one hell of an expose.

    Well lets see - Treasury consisted of 1 x 10 year old computer that crashed several times a day. 2 large old wooden desks. Some filing cabinets full of paperwork in NO particular order. And everybodys coats, shredding material, and rubbish. Nothing of value, clearly.

    I did take me out of Treasury. Maybe thats what they meant.

    Is it enough to start a libel suit against them?

    Maybe...I mean you did get your soul back, and maybe you found it in the treasury office. They would consider "that" a theft.

    This calls for a group hug.

    For all the ex-scientologists in the world.

    sallydannce, thank you. I did what I did mostly due to the support of this group.
    I appreciate everyones kind words :)

    My viewpoint on this - we all have different things we can do to make a difference. This is what I could do. One thing that eats away at me is the feeling that I have let others down. The Co$ exploited this. To not do something here would have eaten away at me, more so that upsetting the Co$ with this expose. So I did what I could do, and in hindsight, I am glad that I did.

    Reading the stories here has shown me just how long the Co$ has been exploiting and manipulating people for. It is heart breaking.

    Before I had heard of the Church of Scientology, before I had even read Dianetics, I had the belief that 'people matter'. And that children are gods we adults haven't yet corrupted into being human. I lost those beliefs for a little while. Now I am taking them back.

    Stay tuned.

    Neo, David and Emma,

    I just want to thank you all very much. The child abuse issue has been very frustrating to me along with the RPF horrors. I sometimes just want to fly to LA and storm the Bastille. To think of any kid any where slaving in an org just infuriates me. That parents would allow this to happen is beyond the pale.

    Words cannot express what this means to so many people. I hope Davey and his minions are having a nervous breakdown right about now, I really do.

    Thank you from the bottom of my thawing heart.

    Of all the horror of the c of s, this always bothered me the worst once I learned what really went on and then left scn for good as a public. I wanted to bust in and rescue them all, but especially the kids and teens, give them a leg up, take them in and help them make it in life.

    I am not sure how to properly thank you for doing that interview and helping those kids....this is nothing short of a major contribution in life, one that many of us can only hope to be part of in life. Emma too...really.

    I too am so excited and I wasnt even in the SO. It was painful to watch the ex scn kids videos and hear all that goes and went on. I wanted to cry listening to what the cult robbed them of.

    You both have brought the catalyst for some major changes for those that cannot fight for themselves, the kids.

    wow.....just wow.....

    oh...see there...there they go, someone set them free ...! :fly2: :fly2: :fly2: :fly2: :fly2:

    oh...and there goes the cult.....:sparky:

    I have been an "official" foster parent for 5 years, but have also taken in many kids, young adults and others escaping from abusive situations...I have heard so many heartbreaking stories, I am also an ER RN.

    Scientology makes me puke. Scientology is soul rape, personality rape, spiritual rape, mind rape and physical rape. Scientology needs to be prosecuted and not allowed to hide behind "religious" protections.

    There are so many stories of child abuse in the cult of scientology that were hushed up.

    The statute of limitations needs to be waived for those who were sexually and otherwise abused by cults and cultists. People as damaged and threatened by cults like scientology are not likely to speak out within 2 years.

    I remember when I got into Scientology in the mid-1990s there was a 10-year old girl who was the receptionist at the org. She was very professional and wonderful... but still... she was 10 and it was late at night!!!!!!!!
