A fine mess…
Recently, someone from the SaveScientology site posted an essay on the current state of the Church of Scientology, Monique Rathbun’s lawsuit, and what might be expected for the future. This essay is well-reasoned, well-organized and devoid of the usual HE&R. The essay is quite long, and the authors also provide very patient, reasoned responses to comments, which responses are also worth reading.
The sponsors of the site are anonymous, but supposedly highly trained members of the Church still in good standing, and backed by a squad of competent lawyers on retainer. Their outlook for the future of the Church is more optimistic than mine. But if they are right and I’m wrong, the outcome will be better than most anyone in the Field could hope for. So I hope they’re right and I am wrong.
In any case, the post is deserving of a good study by everyone in the Field (and the Church, for that matter). It can be read here: A Fine Mess. Highly recommended.
