I’m changing the format of Leaving Scientology a bit to put more emphasis on information and less on discussion. The truth is, I have little time for a Scientology blog these days: my business is booming and requires a lot of my attention, and I have many other interests that I would rather be spending my time on.
Scientology, in my opinion, has many ways to trap you, and one of them is to mire you in endless blog discussions after you have left. The discussions on this blog have been good, even therapeutic, but more and more I feel like I am simply repeating myself, and listening to others repeat themselves. At one time I thoroughly enjoyed the discussions, but of late maintaining the blog has become a tedious chore, one that I do not enjoy and have no time for. I am not one to continue doing things I have lost interest in.
And I have little to no interest in Scientology these days. I have written extensive critiques, I have said what I want to say about it. Those essays are preserved here for anyone to read. As to further discussion, I have little interest in it. I have much more exciting things to do with my time than to continue to discuss Scientology.
Scientology, to me, is a dead issue. The Church may be able to prop up a facade for some years to come, but it is gone. It is a minor oppressive cult scrabbling to control its shrinking membership. Others may want to try to revive the subject in the independent field. Good luck with that, but I have no interest in it. I have little interest in commenting on the Church’s desperate antics. For me, Scientology is, to quote from Macbeth, “but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
I will, of course, continue to speak out against the Church’s abuses when needed. And I continue to be available to anyone who needs help or advice in leaving the Church.
And I am always here for my friends.
But lets talk about other things, shall we?
