Blog: Fleecing The Sheeple - 2016-10-22
This article is written by Lois (Jory) Reisdorf. She was one of the original Commodore's Messengers aboard the Apollo, and I have known her and her husband Gary since being shipmates together back in the 70's. They left the Sea Org in the 80's, raised 3 boys and were off anyone's radar screen. Scientology managed, as it so often does, to poke the sleeping lioness and steal one of her cubs. More on that story will be forthcoming, along with some fascinating insights into the early days of the Sea Org and L. Ron Hubbard and on up through the rise of David Miscavige. For now, this will serve as an introduction to Lowie (as she has always been affectionately known), who with her South African heritage (and still the slightest of accents), red hair and fierce protectiveness has always evoked images of a lioness in my mind.
FLEECING THE SHEEPLE
This is a story of how the Church fleeces it's sheeple into donating towards buildings. There are many stories I have to tell about my life and what has happened to us and they will come out slowly, but due to the recent post of the Valley OTC Minutes, I just had to get this story out as it is so apropos.
