My first blog... and why I am creating it.

I am a Scientologist. I go by a name that starts with a B and I will only go by that single letter for the time being. I have been in Scientology for over 17 years and have given a lot to the Church and gained a lot from it. I have reached OT VI and am continuing my way up the bridge as I have for a large part of my life. I owe a lot of my life successes to Scientology's teachings.

However there has been a lot happening with the Church lately that has forced me to do some thinking, and I am becoming increasingly concerned with the state of the Church. In this blog I want to discuss some of my misgivings of some events and the status of things inside, as well as threats from without. I will cover many topics, such as the leadership, direction of the Church, and of course, the attacks of "anonymous". I will write more on this tomorrow. Right now I am going to save this and step back. I have never written a blog before and so I am not entirely sure what to expect. Obviously I have used the internet some, but even joining here was a big challenge to me, so please bear with me. If you are a Scientologist, you may want to watch this blog as you may agree with some of what I will say. And on other things, perhaps not, but I feel that as a Scientologist, I have not just a right, but a duty to make observations when I see things that are not being handled as they should, or have any concerns with the direction of my Church.

Here is a quote that is one of my favorites.

"Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free – he is his own trap.” - L. Ron Hubbard

I want to be honest here, and I am writing this publicly because I feel I have no way to properly express my concerns inside. I feel only greater good can come from this, or I would not be doing it. More later.

    Good luck with that. By the way, did you ever know that Scientology got up and left from North Carolina? it's strange because if Scientology has any fact that it can help, or at least just function in general, it would have stayed here with me in North Carolina
