Ok so, a while ago at the start of summer I went to stay with relatives (they are scientologists) in New york. They told me about it and I was really interested, so when I got back to the Netherlands I decided to look into it a bit more. I looked around a bit on scientology websites and I was planning on going to visit the local church here in Amsterdam, but I had a few things I wanted to know first. Like if there are any costs involved and if there was any problem with me going to the church myself as a minor ( I'm 17 years old ) or if I needed to bring like a parent, but my main concern was about me being a lesbian and if they had any problems with that (I found some things on a wikipedia site about homosexuality and scientology that were a bit.. disturbing).
I decided to send emails about this to the emails listed on the Dutch scientology website asking about this. I just wrote a bit about who I am, what I do right now, that I was interested in Scientology and I asked a few questions. I also quoted a line on the wikipedia site I found about homosexuality and Scientology, I asked them if that was true and if they really thought like that, and basicly if being gay and being in the church of Scientology go together when I really don't want to (or can't) change anything about that.
It's been like two weeks now and I didn't get an answer yet.. I've been looking into Scientology a lot more since then, thats also how I found this website. I don't really plan on getting involved with any of this now that I've read so much about this, but I really still would like to know, if possible from a scientologist or former scientologist:
Do being in the Church of Scientology and being gay go together or do they treat you in a different way?
Thanks for reading :]
