The raid on Arnie Lerma outraged me. The ex parte writ of seizure obtained
fraudulently and executed against Lerma was my wake-up call. It motivated
me to speak out against the abuses of the cult.

Indeed. As we have observed, since Scientology is bound by Hubbard's
policies to dig up dirt on its enemies, critics, "op terms", etc., it
behooves us to have clean hands. We should maintain a high standard
of integrity in all of our dealings with others.
It is my policy to tell the truth always. As many have observed,
Scientologists have very little to say with regards to refuting
my posts. Perhaps this has been because the cult does not perceive
me to be much of a threat. Perhaps it is because the Scientologists
reading my posts know that what I have written is true, and that I
have proof and/or personal experience.

In a few of my past posts I have stated that I don't hate
Scientologists. I do however oppose and despise many of the
I am of the opinion that the best way to deal with the cult of
Scientology is to expose their lies, deceit, fraud, betrayals
and abuses. Along with this general handling, I believe it is
necessary to identify the cult's myriad front groups. Forewarned
(with factual information) is forearmed (with the ability to
recognize the cult).
I personally forgave Scientology years ago for its sins against me.

Helping victims also became one of my purposes in life. Preventing
future victims became a primary reason for doing what I do.
My personal sorrow stems from knowing that Scientology will never
make up for the damage it has done to so many. The cult isn't even
up to being able to admit wrongdoing on its part.
The betrayal many have experienced from Scientology is enormous.
We should forgive, in my opinion, but we should warn others of the
danger, and we should assist victims who need our help.
And we should demand that Scientology reform, even though it is
highly unlikely that the cult will reform.
