I've copied this out of Gregg's picket report of July 12th just in case anyone missed it. This is EXACTLY why I wrote the Xemu leaflet and why I encourage people to distribute it. This is why I picket even if it means getting punched in the face by a scieno yob.

The URL for the Xemu leaflet is at the end. It belongs to the public domain. I hope that if you are reading this then you will download it and print it and use it to avoid someone's life being ruined as in the story below.


One lady literally cried on my shoulder about how, years ago, her husband and blown their savings on Co$ courses, & briefly separated from her because she was anti-CoS. He left the Co$ after doing the OT3 and returned to her and his kids a broken man. He had been down in the states and returned as she said tearfully, "Broken in mind, spirit and body." He died of liver failure while on the transplant waiting list a while ago.

She cried because she said that when he came back he was so ashamed and guilty because when he finally found out about Xenu etc he knew he had been deceived about everything and he just walked away from the Co$. He had called her and asked her to wire him busfare back, which she did. She cried because, as she said, No one told him about Xenu upfront and no protestor stood out front and dared to expose the Co$ Secrets.

I told her no one had had the opportunity to spread this kind of info before. She said she knew that and she was glad to get him back still alive. They had had time for him to reacquaint himself with his kids and settle everything between themselves. She had the chance to tell him she forgave him, but he never really forgave himself. She said, once his liver problems were diagnosed he spent a week cursing the CoS, Hubbard and his own foolishness and then never mentioned them again.

She and her kids are in Family Counselling and still dealing with this.

She gave me a big hug and went on her way.

Very sad indeed.

"Err, there's no helicopter there, the guy's frozen in alcohol and glycol, and sitting in a block, being given a big 3D Cecil B. De Milles special motion picture." - part of L. Ron Hubbard's profound cosmology.
