To be honest, I am still catching my breath from the airing of Going Clear last night. Thank you to everyone who wrote, texted, tweeted, called and otherwise made their support and appreciation known. It was a bit overwhelming.
Also, I am not as industrious as Tony Ortega. And despite what the church says, I have work I need to do in order to make a living.
Those are my justifications for not doing a posting of my own this morning, and I am sticking to them.
But I am not in any way apologizing for telling you that you must read the article Tony Ortega has on his blog this morning.
It is stunning and undeniable evidence of disconnection in the church of scientology today. Truly, the Thought Police are in full bloom. And it is poetic justice that their penchant for recording everything is coming back to bite them in the ass.
I know Sylvia and Tim DeWall. I became friends with them as a result of the ordeal they went through. They are great people. Just the sort of people that the church cannot afford to lose. They represent the substance of what used to be the scientology community. Hard working families who volunteered their time to do what they thought was right and beneficial to the community. Of course, these days they are the serf class in scientology. The whales are nurtured and protected. The real people are discarded without so much as a second thought. I DO want to sincerely thank the church for helping me make many wonderful friends, some of the greatest people I know I have met because they were driven out of the church. We were sad when Sylvia and Tim decided (understandably) to move away and no longer live in the shadow of scientology in Clearwater.
Scientology doesn’t have Tommy Davis, or anyone at all for that matter, to deny that disconnection exists on national TV. But they have done their best to try and “dead agent” Sara Goldberg’s heart-wrenching story in Going Clear. Well, here is some extremely recent evidence that supports everything Sara and hundreds of others say.
You have to hear this recording to believe it. Though anyone who has had the dubious pleasure of sitting in front of one the Nazi Youth Automatons called Flag Ethics Officers will find this eerily familiar.
To steal a very appropriate turn of phrase from a regular commenter at Tony’s blog — Scientology, it’s always worse than you thought.
