Again, why are you here posting?
At this point it seems you are not really interested in anything except posting Scientology propaganda and selling Scientology.
Actually, I think that is my fault. I appreciate that the moderators and senior members have heard all of this before and apologise for provoking what to them is obviously a well-and-truly tired discussion!
The discussion is fascinating for me, a junior member who has been approached several times to join Scientology. And without any knowledge of the group, it is hard to say no. "Get out of your comfort zone," I've been told. How does one respond?
Now I know. I think we need to thank Durham for his allowing Scientology to be discussed openly and frankly. It is a rare opportunity: I understood it was forbidden for members to discuss Scientological principles outside of the official forums of the church without recourse to the words, verbatim, of its founder. So thank you Durham for bringing what you know to the table. I personally feel I can now say no with more authority.
