I think it is satanic. What goes on in Scientology these days is unbelievably evil. It probably always has been, but it is really coming to fruition in the last few years. The foul nasty bits that I at one time thought were exceptions....just some individual asshole with a heap of MUs....has become SOP.
Yes as you said "it probably always has been". I wish that was not true, but the more I read I have been asking myself this question "what is worse: LRH then; COB now?". Obviously there are sites anti-COB and others anti-LRH and anti-COB. The whole thing is a bit of a shambles.
Thank-you for the story, onthepes. Every little bit contributes to the whole truth, the big picture.
Thank you Kookaburra (kookaburras rock, I see them all the time on my walks). Yes everything does contribute. I appreciate you acknowledging my story. I hope that somebody considering being an OOT may read it one day (highly unlikely but I like to dream)
