(Disgusted and horrified)
Years ago, I heard a rumor from an ex Scientologist that only people
who confessed to having done really heavy s**t were promoted to the highest
ranks in CO$, because this could be used against them if they tried to
defect or blow the whistle.
Persons who'd lived clean lives were less likely to get promoted - they had
nothing to fear!
BTW: This contrasts with canon law of the Roman Catholic Church which obligates
clergy not to break the seal of the confessional.
