This was sent to me by a dear friend and fellow survivor of the trenches of scientology.
It seems awfully appropriate to post this morning, a day when it seems somewhat pointless to say much other than: enjoy Going Clear. I do realize there are other places in the world who cannot see it today, but it is dominating the scientology narrative today nevertheless.
It has been a long time coming. It has already changed the world of scientology and the ripples from this landing in the middle of their pond will continue for many years to come. The media is emboldened. Individuals are stepping forward to tell their stories (see article in Washington Post). Hopefully it will also stimulate some legislators and government agencies to act.
It’s a great day for the spotlights to be turned on. And while the church will try to shield the eyes of everyone in the flock, they will not be able to succeed. This has become a cultural phenomenon and every scientologist who has any friends, neighbors, workmates or family NOT in the church will be watching this program and will ask those scientologists about it afterwards. The light is seeping into the blackness.
It’s about time. It’s been too dark for too long in there.
