Scientology Chooses an Odd Time to Open a "National Affairs" Office in DC
Today at 6 pm, Scientology will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a building in Washington DC's Dupont Circle neighborhood.
For the last couple of years, Scientology has opened "Ideal Orgs" -- fancy, superfluous new churches in cities around the world in an expensive ploy to make it look like the church is expanding. (It isn't.)
But today's dedication is especially curious.
At a time when Scientology is reeling from several major crises and more negative press attention than ever in its history, the church is officially opening a "National Affairs Office" in the nation's capital, expecting that it can become a player in American politics.
