Calling them a money-making scheme is close to an >outrage. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but... did it ever occur to you that while you were working for the Church, and being "hardly paid at all" for it, the _Church_ was making money? Paying your workers less means less overhead which means more profits. Hubbard founded Scientology to put money in _his_ bank accounts, not those of everyone in the Church. Now that Hubbard's gone, it's the people at the top of the Church organization who are reaping the benefits. As you yourself have testified, there's not much trickle-down to the rank-and-file Church workers. ------------------------------------------------------------------ __ Live from Capitaland, heart of the Empire State... ___/ | Jim Kasprzak, computer operator @ RPI, Troy, NY, USA /____ *| Disclaimer: RPI pays me to work, not to think. \_| "A spirit with a vision is a dream with a mission" -Rush =3D=3D=3D=3D e-mail: jimcat@rpi.edu or kasprzak@mts.rpi.edu
