In addition to what I just wrote below, you failed to relate to the "argument" I wrote about
the common points "Drop-out-scientology-kids" &
SGAs seem to share...here for you to read...in case it should be new to you:
I first heard of Scientology shortly after the raids. It was recommended to us that we work closely with the Scientologists because they had so much in common with us, and they had succeeded in becoming accepted by mainstream society. They had much to teach us.
When I went to live at Greenfields in Tokyo shortly afterwards, in one of the sound-proof rooms I found piles of information about Scientology. I sat and read it all, and was heartbroken to see that the people we were supposed to identify with most in this world were so obviously crazy. Why did we always have to side with freaks?
In the past few years the Internet has been bombarded with Scientology facts by the group Anonymous, and the more I've read, the more creeped out by then I've been. The day Tom Cruise jumped like a maniac on Oprah's couch I knew he'd truly lost the plot, and I felt concerned for Katie and Suri from that point onward.
