Its about who can act the most brainwashed and kiss the most ass, I was never a good ass kisser so I always fell short of making MS. I made it to the point of them offering it to me. I saw horrible people being appointed. And a lot of old school elders which i have been close to in halls in three different states, they don't give a rats ass about anyone... they are smug... they don't even sit through the meetings, most the time the elders are off talking to each other about god knows what unless they have a part... their parts are phoned in totally... Most have no field service presence... they just work work work. I have known plenty that were alcoholics, (dont get me wrong I love to party), You think getting to the top is some kind of highly enlightened person. Nope. Just big ego'd small d%$#k men tripping in their sad little club.
I now take pride in my minimal contribution to this nonsense. I had some bethelites and other friends (MS and Pioneer over) and it stuns me how negative they talk about their "brothers and sisters" the whole time I keep my mouth shut, and I know my wife sees it. When you pull out of this wacky cult you become so much more positive, less judgmental, and so on.
