Thinking the Worst of Yourself as a Scientologist

How gullible can some Ex-Scientologists get? Jon Atack wrote a post on Tony Ortega’s blog, accusing everyone who was ever involved in Scientology of being gullible. I commented about Jon’s broad-brushed generality of anyone who ever called themselves a Scientologist. It gave me the chance to use the word “hootenanny” (twice), and I have been […]

Was L Ron Hubbard Perfect?

When a Scientologist leaves the Church of Scientology and sees the information on L Ron Hubbard’s real life outside the glossy brochures printed by the Church, internal conflicts result. These internal conflicts can swirl around questions like this: “How can this man – whose technology gave me so many spiritual wins and real advancements in […]
