    Welcome! I've never been to SH, but I've seen the pictures!

    Welcome Billyd! The cult will call ole timers and tell you that you have amnesty. The stuff you endured in the past is all forgotten and the "church" does not do those nasty things anymore. What you don't know - if you take the bait - is that the "church of scientology" has gotten worse. It is more carefully masked and hidden from view. They only want your money. Lurker's beware!

    Why don't you get in touch with Karen and make a video? Tell the world what you experienced and help others go free! That would be the ultimate blow to the cult!

    Hi there, Bill, and welcome to you.
    Glad you are out and about. Life is a Lot more fun out here.
    You actually can think, say, feel, write and believe what you like. Freely.
    I hope you enjoy your renewed freedom of choice.
    It seems like you have earned it.

    Welcome! I was here years ago but kept trying to convince myself the Co$ wasn't all that bad for the sake of my wife (now ex). Not sure what my old logins were but boy was I WRONG.

    I thought you might be Billyd but I believe he's in Ireland or the UK.

    In any event, welcome!! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for your story which you posted on the other thread.

    Hope you get some good advice there.

    I agree. Feel comfortable - we've got front row seats to the trainwreck that is the cult of scientology. Things are going to get more interesting after the airing of "Going Clear" on HBO Sunday 29th March.

    Since people keep welcoming BillyD I think it's worth pointing out that he started this thread almost a year ago.

    I don't think he's been around here for quite a few months now.

    He was in Ireland recently at the conference hosted by Pete Griffiths and did a talk on video wherein he described some of his background. It's in a thread somewhere on this board but I can't be arsed to look for it.

    Wow! loved the quote at the end, about being falsely free.I had to comment on it. Sort of like the one that goes something like this, "no greater blind than those who
    wish not to see".
