Mostly because I started reading Inside Scientology by Janet Reitman, and it reminded me how much Scientology pisses me off.
Why did I go away in the first place? Partly because being Caliwog takes up a lot of time, and I have to make money. Partly because I was seeing changes in what Marty wrote on his blog – his trouble justifying the lies of L. Ron Hubbard. Marty’s on his way out, and so are a lot of his followers. (But then along comes Milestone Two to take more money from the True Believers who are no longer True Believers. (Speaking of Milestone Two, be sure to read my article about why true believer Jim Logan is a complete idiot.)
Also, partly because my fears that Tony Ortega was snowed by Marty proved unfounded. Tony’s Underground Bunker is the best thing to happen to the Scientology protest movement since Mark Bunker. Sorry for doubting you, Tony.
I figured the protest movement could get along fine without me. (Well, it always got along fine without me, and it always will.)
So now I’m back. How long will I stay? Who knows. Until I calm down, I guess.
