    Wow, what a read. Paul, it breaks my heart that this organization took so much from you. You were a young man who had a huge heart that just wanted to help others, and they just used you again and again, and gave you back so little. Your narrative also gives an insight too, as to why people get caught up in this cult. They're not all bad people, but the people at the top are, and have no qualms about taking advantage of good people to better themselves.

    Thank you for opening your wounds for us, scooter!
