Suicide of Greg Bashaw

i hear what you are saying about viewing what i've said about GB's suicide as narrow.

now try to understand what i'm actually saying:

this is a controversy. i am not going to presume anything about these other factors you cite all of which may or may not be pertinent to GB. i take this matter very seriously therefore i give serious consideration to the reports. i tentatively affirm what i can reasonably believe to be accurate and pertinent

BirdSong..... This thread is meant to focus on Greg. Greg was a long term, very loyal member of Scientology. He died with over $300,000 worth of debt that was money he had given to Scientology. He spied for them in Chicago. He did everything "right" as a member of that organization. And now he is dead.

No matter the circumstances, no matter the tiny bits of facts or exaggerations, the truth is that Greg was someone who gave his life to Scientology, and when he needed them the most, they deserted him.

I don't need to hear another persons similar story. For myself, one death is too many.

I think I can relate to him... I think I understand him...

But I don't think I would do that to my family... I would hope I would not...

But if I did not have a family... Well, who knows...

Sometimes, just for a moment, the thought brings a sense of relief... and then it is gone...

Then you have simply never reached the unrelenting pressure of a broken mind, from which there is no escape.

Yes, I've been there, and I do understand. These stories get swept under the rug and explained away. My heart breaks for him and his family. There are too many stories like this, a lot of them never told.
