Hi, I've been lurking for several years, you have helped me so much! I have family still on staff and sea org, but most have left. I have only been volunteer and public. I was always the skeptical one in my family. Parent got in when I was a kid. I really believed the "tech" but objected to some stuff I read. Like homosexuals were 1.1, if women had power in a society then the society was going down hill, I remember not liking that but thinking well, maybe I don't like it but maybe it's true anyway. I didn't like the church, just thought the "tech" must be true. I still believed in a lot of stuff but reading here has opened my eyes, so thank you for being here!
