I'm sorry the Mother has bought that this had nothing to do with
Scientology. Having now known 7 young men who were all involved in
Scientology, in one way or another, and then took their own lives, saying
this man had a Scientology Father---and thinking it had "nothing to do with
Scientology"---well, she needs to learn more about this cult.
Even if her son truly hated Scientology, which it sounds like he did, having
his Father deeply into it, well, we just don't know how deeply that may have
affected him. I know having stood over one of my dear friends who shot
himself to death, it isn't pretty, and that young man had one parent "in"
and one parent "out". Let's never forget Phillip Gayle who helped start up Earthlink, and jumped out of the 15th story window of MIT, On L. Ron Hubbard's B-day! All of his college friends said he didn't like Scientology, either, but his Mom was a top Spokesperson for CCHR at the time, which for those new here is a Scientology side group against psychs.
It makes for deep conflict, from all I've experienced
My blessings to Victoria and any and all friends of this young man. May he
rest in peace, and fly high with the angels.
