Re: Neil Gaiman's not a Scientologist, but ..... (was "Neil Gaiman's Out") Perhaps. I personally believe he's somewhere in between. Not a 'Great Man', but most of us aren't great men either. Indeed they do. I recognize him as 'human' and if perhaps he does want 'out' he doesn't have the guts to blow; just yet anyway. If you've ever read any of his writing, you'd realize the author knows these things pretty damned well. What I can't tell, if whether he's comfortable or resigned to 'cowardice, hypocrisy, deceit'- or if he will dare face them. He hasn't, so far. He writes about being abused by insane and selfish parents. He writes about struggling with delusions, the difficulty of differentiating the real from imaginary; particularly of people whose lives are split between multiple worlds -which deny the validity of eachother. I think he's half-way out of CoS. I hope he gets the rest of the way out. He's not a hero, but (like BFG, Tory, Smurf, etc) he may still have some humanity left to salvage. Next move is up to him.
