Selected Responses to the 2003 Leipzig Award for Andreas Heldal-Lund
on May 18, 2003
Add your congratulations
You are the wind that has helped me fly, and feel freedom,
finally. There are not words to tell you how much your friendship
and care has meant to me.
Trapped inside a Cult for 30 years (mostly the last 10 were where
I felt super trapped), having greatly woken up, I was still all
alone and greatly needing a hand.
I felt as if I was hanging off a cliff, when you offered me a hand.
I know you say "Tory, you did it. I was just at the right place,
at the right time" and that is true, in some ways.
However, had you not held out your hand to me, I very well may
have turned off my computer, and never seen the light.
I thank you ....and I congratulate you, my friend,
on this award so greatly desearved.
My greatest love to you....

I left Scientology in 1999, after twenty-four years.
When I was ready to make that break and ready, after all those
years, to confront information that was critical of Scientology,
I went online. One of the first things I had to confront
was "Operation Clambake." I was searching for answers to the
thousands of questions I was beginning to ask about Hubbard,
about the organization, and about the "technology" that I
had sworn allegiance to for the next billion years. www.xenu.net
was a wonderful help to me then and it continues to be a key
resource for my writing and research projects and for my
defense against what I have come to realize is a very dangerous
and diabolical cult. Thank you, Andreas, from
the bottom of my heart, for all your work and for your courageous
OPERATION CLAMBAKE -- Keeping The Door Open For People Like Me.
Congratulations, Andreas. And thank you for maintaining
the premier website for referring potential victims and even
current Scn'ists to, in order to show what the "most ethical
group on the planet" is really about.
Well done, Andreas!
