Well, I dunno about the variations from org to org, but my friend from college went down to AOLA for a while and was told to 'disconnect' from her boyfriend and family because they were suppressives. The really really hypocritical thing that bugged me the most is how they were perfectly willing to accept her father's $20,000 `donation' despite the fact that he was an SP in their books. Sure, you can rationalize it as `draining the resources of the enemy' but it just reinforces their greed in my eyes. ``You can't talk to your father, unless its to ask him when he's gonna send the check.''

Also, as an additional side note to anyone reading, the stuff in the `Drug Free Rundown' has absolutely no basis in scientific fact of any kind. Some of the claims in it are totally ludicrous, and the whole tome was little more than a ploy to get more desperate people under the Church's control. ``Once you've begun to get yourself off drugs, why not bop on down to the Friendly Neighborhood Mission and work for us, eh?''
