(Section 18 of Part 3 – Why I Left the Church)
In my view: it’s one thing that COB and management have implemented programs that violate LRH tech and policy. If they think they know better than LRH did, the least they could do is be upfront about it and stop pretending to be following what LRH says. As it is, COB has his followers thinking that he is an expert and follower of Standard Tech and Admin, and that his programs follow LRH tech and policy. If his programs are so right and more workable than LRH’s, then why does he need to deceive people into thinking that they are things that LRH would approve of?
If COB’s programs were so great, they would show in the statistics and he wouldn’t have to lie about “explosive growth” to continue to have the support of church members.
