I write this on the offchance that a Scientologist should stumble across this blog. This post is for you.
First, and most importantly, please understand this: we are not against you. You have the freedom to practice your religion as and how you wish. While we may poke fun at aspects of Scientology doctrine, this is not the source of the criticisms many of us have with the Church of Scientology.
What we are protesting, and what we are opposed to, is the Church of Scientology as an institution, not Scientologists as people or Scientology itself as a doctrine.
As such, I wish to make this offer to any current or former Scientologists. If you leave a comment on this post telling your story, I will repost it to the main blog. You may be as open or anonymous as you wish, and as supportive or opposed to the Church. While we may continue to disagree I wish to give you the chance to tell your side of the story, however positive or negative it may be.
