UTR I like that. "Flocking the Sheep"
When I first opened my eyes and really started seeing what was in front of them all along, I found a pdf of CoC, and downloaded it. It made a big impact on me. Well I don't know what price will be put on the CoC book, or epub, when it comes out. So I am mailing a check for $25 to Deborah. When the new copies of Ray's books come out I will buy a copy of each!!
Over the years, back in the mid to late 70's, I met both Ray and Fred. In my short visit with them, Fred came across, as a very self righteous, self important wind bag! Ray, seamed like a normal guy, easy to chat with. I was just a lowly MS, doing stage security for what was a special meeting.
I remember when CoC, came out, and we were all warned about this super apostate, and his EVIL book CoC. I was over at an eldubs house one night in his office. I saw a copy of CoC on his book shelf. I ask about it. He said that he got it so, he could know the lies written in it, and be ready to refute them. He has a son that is still a friend of mine. His son was in bethell for 6 years, and was there during the witch hunt, that saw Ray leave bethell, and the aftermath. He saw a number of strong hard working brothers, shaken to the point they either left or were ask to leave, for asking to many question. This guy after leaving bethell, came back an MS, but quickly was removed, and soon drifted out of the borg. I just caught up with him in the past few months. He say, his over all time at bethell, killed what faith he had in the borg. I ask him if he knew Ray, he said yes but only in passing. I then ask if he knew that his dad had a copy of CoC, he didn't know, but that his dad had ask a number of question, he had to get from having read that book. But after confirming a few of the stories about life at bethell, his dad stopped asking questions.
Anyway, it will be great to have a real printed copy of Ray's book's. I hope someone will write an update to the book, so as to reflect some of the money grabbing etc, of the borg!!!!
