It's unfortunate that you don't believe it. It's perfectly fitting with other accounts I have read.

"Provide evidence"? You have no evidence; you just have pithy stock statements that the Church has educated into believing. The "anti-Scientologists" have loads and loads of evidence; the testimony of former members (Jon Atack, Bent Corydon) as well as those outsiders who have come close to the Church (Paulette Cooper, Stewart Lamont) speaks volumes more than the contentless spewings of its members.

Your viewpoint is not an "outside" viewpoint. -- "I'm Tom Bodett for Motel 6. We'll leave the maid out for ya." -- Sean Patrick Ryan (fsspr@acad3.alaska.edu)
