Thanks for this topic.
Many of us, after realizing TTATT, have a lot of anger, and unfortunately the elders are 'the face of the org' and much of our anger gets directed at them (realized this when reading some of my older posts). I'm not saying they were all great loving people, just that some of them may have been misled and controlled just as I was at one stage.
Many are well meaning, having a true devotion to God, but are also trapped. My thoughts and prayers also go to them. I think it may be very hard for and elder to get out after seeing TTATT.
On the other hand many of them could be described as just plain evil, but recently I try not to make it personal and just use it to justify the truth that the org is not guided by spirit, and aim my anger at the org.
