    I have known Karen since 1975. She is truly a top authority on all things Scientology. I was in Scientology for 25 years and reached the highest levels available. I eventually found out that all the lofty promises and results were unfounded and non existent, By that time I had invested about half a million dollars and thousands upon thousands of hours of devoted work. It was a devastatng experience and I left the cult in 1997. I was a gay man before Scintology and I am still gay today, but now I know that all the cult’s expensive procedures to ‘turn me straight’ are false. My story is widely posted on Google under Michael Pattinson Scientology zone of searching. I sued Scientology but they crushed me and my attorney by paying operatives to abuse the legal system against us. I have never regretted leaving Scientology and I encourage current members to simply study the exposed truth on the internet and be free themselves.

      @michael_pattinson:disqus Did you go into Scientology as a way to figure out why you were Gay? I mean this in an inquisitive manner to see what it was that brought you into the world of Scientology.

      How did they treat you as a Gay man at the beginning, and as you progressed further into Scientology without “being straightened out” by their procedures.

      @michael_pattinson:disqus –

      Thanks for taking the time to share a little info on your life and your time in Scientology. You mentioned that you came into Scientology as a gay man and left as one; but in-between that time Scientology had you endure expensive procedures to turn you “straight”. Sadly even today people believe that being homosexual is a choice—and up until several years back— I too believed that as a byproduct of my upbringing.

      But now I tend to believe:
      #1 There is Science backing the probable cause of homosexuality

      #2 If a person believes in the Human soul and reincarnation, that a person’s soul may remember a life as another sex (souls are genderless) and therefor we have homosexuality and transgenderism

      If either of those are true then one has to lean toward this being either the work of nature—or of God.

      Would you mind expanding upon what Procedures were used by Scientology to cure you of something that is to you no more unnatural than it is for us to breath?
