Then they must not be very rich to begin with, or stupid for "turning over" all their money, which the church has never asked me to do. When a person decides to do Scientology seriously, they will find a way to do it without going into the poor house. Anyone (and there are a few) who blindly donates everything and runs up bills they can't pay is a fool who has parted with their money.

Then rather than taking responsibility for their mistake they blame the church. In the free world you still have the power to say no, up yours etc.

No it doesn't, I sometimes enjoy being a jerk. :-) There's a wide variety of people in the church just like anywhere else.

Given what you have stated in b) reflects on what I said above about when a person really wants something he/she will make it happen. It looks like you're making it happen. Personal attack withdrawn.
