Family & Scientology – How I Became a Scientologist

I’ve been asked a few different times about how my own religious beliefs and practices will figure into my children, and whether I assume that they will be Scientologists as well.   Obviously, it’s a major item of discussion in current media,  and as such I think it’s somewhat appropriate (as a second-generation Scientologist) to note how it was that I came into Scientology.A college anthropology student sent me a question related to a study for a class she was taking on how one’s family hist … [Read more...]

Overcoming the Stress of a Traumatic C-Section

I had a pretty traumatic emergency C-Section nearly three years ago when my daughter was born.  Since then, I’ve had an immense amount of pent-up emotion and upset connected to that operation.  Even after several years, I would constantly find myself still very much caught up in that incident. Not a day went by that I did not mull things over in my head, thinking of alternate endings, of what I should have could have done to change it, etc. I would lay in bed nearly every night running this thr … [Read more...]

“You make New Year’s resolutions. And you make them into the teeth of old resolutions which were different. Then you don’t keep your new resolutions and you tell yourself you are weak-willed.

Protesting the Drugging of Our Children

Don't you dare drug my daughter. If there’s something that should have been abundantly clear by now, it’s the fact that I’m 100% opposed to the practice of labeling and subsequent psychotropic drugging of children.     At its core, it is the world’s most-effective marketing sham, and too many parents fall for it.The American Psychiatric Association held their annual marketing pitch to “doctors” in Philadelphia this year, and my family lent their voices to the many up there that cam … [Read more...]

Questions & Answers on Scientology

A while back, I was contacted on Facebook by a college student curious about my thoughts on Scientology.  I’d normally answer such directly, but as I've had a number of other similar questions on Digg, Twitter and other various social media venues, I figured I’d give my best shot at answering these on my blog.So, here goes: So, my first question really is: What is it that Scientology offers that makes it something that you wanted to make a part of your life?
