1. Anyone tempted in this thread to criticize Karen about her Scientology beliefs, please - does this even need saying? - BACK OFF.
I am so very, deeply sorry. I have so much respect and affection for you, and my heart is breaking for you right now.
The one thing I can do for you is to shout about the evil DM and the other non-independent Scientologists are attempting to get away with.
Here in San Francisco, we started this morning, at a protest. People couldn't believe it. Even to me, when I listened to what I was saying, thought it sounded like an over-the-top horror movie.
We grieve for you, and with you.
All my love,
Thank you so much for your kindness
Thank you Skeptic Girl for your thoughtful private Email.
Thank you other OCMB posters as well.People don't ask me what Alexander was like.
I would like to share an anecdote.
When Alexander was 6 years old, I exited the Sea Org (1990)
Alexander saw a show on TV where poor Mexican orphans were looking through trash dumps in Tijuana to find something to sell for 2 cents.
Alexander forced me, I mean FORCED and bullied me to take him to Tijuana ~~ a 2 1/2 hour drive south of San Diego and 2 1/2 hour drive back to give his outgrown clothes, toys and $$$$ to the poor Mexican children.
I was really touched because I believe it is rare that a 6 year old would even think of benevolence and kindness to help orphans.
We had a magnificent charity filled day visiting 2 orphanages in Tijuana and gave from our hearts.
Alexander had a lot of *HEART* In the Sea Org he was nicknamed as "Alexander the Great".
