Rhonda, I was into Dianetics from the beginning. Five years of my life, but they were my teen years. I missed the Richie Cunningham phase (I never was the Beaver). I went into the Air Force at 17. I drifted away from Orgland in the physical realm, but my mind was still playing LRon's tapes, etc. etc. etc. Then I got a webtv (I know, everyone say, yuck!) I found ARS by looking for it. Now , 43 years later I am finding some closure. Scientology has only gotten worse over the years. I want to see it end.
Co$ is not a religion! Not by any standard! Not by any real definition. Not in the real world.
My experiences were mild , almost nice by comparison with what I've seen since , including here on ARS, but ,hey , if a 60+ year old man is still affected by things that happened in the early '50s, what about the victims of recent time?
