Dear Friends, It started with Jenna Miscavige Hill's book. I had been a Moonie 30 years ago for 12 years, so when I saw the book in the library, I decided to read it to compare "stories." What an eye-opener. I really had no idea what went on in Scientology - what they believed, what they did, how the movement was growing, even how it started. I just want to say that since that time (several months ago), I have been obsessed with the subject and follow The Underground Bunker daily, this board, other blogs from ex's, YouTube videos...I guess I've become something of a "Scientology buff." It's very interesting to me especially now because my former church is also imploding. Last year Sun Myung Moon died suddenly and right after that it was discovered that the head of the American church (his daughter who was married with 5 kids) had an affair and an illegitimate child. This blew a lot of people's minds, because Moon's children were supposed to be born perfect. But another son has already split off and started his own group, etc. Long story short, out of his 13 kids, I think only a few have anything to do with the church. Moon also fathered a child out of wedlock, so there went his "shore story" of being a pure and holy Messiah. But I do have to say that being a Moonie couldn't compare with being a Scientologist in terms of horror stories. That's why I have so much respect for those who have come out after many years and still are sane and articulate!!!! God bless you all.
