    I think I was there when that happened. Was it around 1974? He was pounding he podium. yeah, he was ....ed that ushers were still ushering. He said something like the devil would destroy the ministry if he weren't around. If it wasn't the time you're talking about, it happened then too.

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    Oh yeah, I thought of another thing - the book "The Thirteenth Tribe" by Arthur Koestler was promoted. It's premise is that the Jews of today are not descendants of the 12 tribes but are really from the Kaisers, whose country was located between a Muslim country and a Christian country (as I recall). Their solution was to adopt Judaism in order to avoid political conflict.

    We were encouraged to read "The Myth of the Six Million" which as I recall either denied the Holocaust or said fewer died than believed. And I remember Craig yelling about "The Jews" and how they "control everything".

    Phasing in a Splinter

    We were also told we can't share anything that happened in the training with anyone outside of it. That's pretty weird now that I think about it. I went to Momentous because someone in my fellowship hounded me into it. I originally didn't want to go. I was seeing a psychiatrist at the time which made me ineligible. But lo and behold it turned out I could (per Tuccini) as long as I wasn't on medication. So I went. I bought into everything that was going on but it kicked me into a manic episode and I ended up in the mental hospital. The group leaders actually came to see me. But there was never any acknowledgment from anyone in my fellowship that Momentous was to blame in any way. John Lynn stated in one of his communications that those that had problems in Momentous was because they "didn't want to face something in themselves" or something to that effect.

    Leah Remini/ Scientology and similarity to TWI

    It was harder to leave if you were Corps. We had a "lifetime commitment." It might have not been any kind of physical restraint but it was psychological. I was subjected to an hour long yelling and blaming fest by the branch leader because I had mentioned to another person that sometimes I felt like leaving, who then ratted on me.

    Sorry to see the site go, if that is the case. Thanks to Pawtucket for all the hard work. And to the mods. I will miss this site if it goes. Been coming here since 2002 and still check in a few times a week.

    If you lived in a limb home with clergy did you have to stand up every time he/she walked in whatever room you might be in?
