Greg and Debra have been long term members of the "church of scientology organization", hereinafter, "COSO" and like Mike and Virginia McClaughry, have been prominent and respected members of the Scientology field. Despite the fact that all four have been recently declared suppressive by COSO, they all have a firmly held belief in Scientology but are vigorously opposed to the abusive, deceptive and tech altering practices of Miscavige's COSO. In summary, Mike and Virginia, and Greg and Debra are TRUE religious freedom fighters who are standing up for their beliefs and opposed to Miscavige's efforts to destroy Scientology.
I for one am proud to stand beside them and to help them in any way possible to emancipate Scientologists from COSO so that they may all practice their truly held beliefs free from the oppression of Miscavige's COSO.
