    Colombians are not overly receptive to overtures from other religions or cults. I remember hanging out with some Mormon missionary friends back in the late eighty's and being told of some of the horrors in store for some of their missionaries who draw assignments in heavily Catholic or Islamic 3rd world areas.
    In the late eighty's missionary work was suspended in Colombia after the cold blooded murder of two young male missionaries who's only crime was knocking on the wrong door.
    If LRH got his ass kicked out of some little Afrikan country I can only imagine the murkey easily provoke-able moods of Colombians who will feel that this is the hand of the devil.....

    According to John McLean who was Apollo crew in 1971, 10 Government officials in Morocco were executed after security checking on the e-meter.

    Scientology's insinuating itself into Government does NOT end well.

    At this phase of their safepointing I am given to understand that they are distributing The Way To Happiness to the Colombian Military.

    The witch-hunts and executions have not yet begun.

    Freedom magazine has an article with these photos:

    "During its dedication, Mr. Miscavige told the large crowd, “Should any of you wonder how this day came to pass, well look no further than your own innate passion for humanity.”


    While every Ideal Org opening carries a sense of spectacle, the Bogotá event was particularly inspirational. Perhaps it was the timing—the final jewel placed in a crown of reforms that have so altered the Colombian landscape.


    Lt. Col. Rojas of the Colombian National Police said he has seen that the population of Colombia benefits from the Scientology presence in the country, and that the religion has helped people “change the patterns of their thinking and their way of seeing the world.”


    There’s also something the Lt. Col. sincerely hopes—to see more Scientology Churches in his country and across the South American continent."
