Here is a question I got on my blog about Scientology and my answers.
At first sight it may not seem like a question related to the religion, but it was attempting to get an understanding of the culture around the religion.
For example, in some religions women are given a subordinate role to men, so in that case the answer would tell you that.
If we did or did not have a spokesperson, it would have nothing to do with Scientology.
Such things are personal or traditional choices. For our family, we don’t have a “spokesperson”. Not sure when or why we’d need one.
My kids are adults living their own lives now but when they were still children my wife and I would always discuss things with them and come to an understanding.
There were very few situations where we had to override their choices and if we ever did then there was full agreement between my wife and me.
I guess we have more of a democratic setup than a dictatorial one.
