Excerpt from an interview with Alex Gibney from USA today, by way of the Drudge Report:
"It's hard for me to understand how it is that you and I effectively subsidize the Church of Scientology by allowing them to take tax deductible donations in order to be able to go hire private detectives to harass and intimidate people, to coerce children to sign billion year contracts which effectively consign them to permanent servitude, to threaten people with loss of their homes, to practice the policy of disconnection that destroys families. Why is that considered a charitable activity? I don't Get that."
I'll be adding other videos, and other content, with amplify ideas presented in the HBO 'Going Clear' documentary.
Limited by two hours, it was impossible for the doc to thoroughly cover all areas.
The purpose of this thread is to provide additional information for those curious - especially for those who saw the HBO doc and would like areas mentioned there further explored and, perhaps, some areas not mentioned further explored.
It is not a debate thread so much as an information thread.
Questions, of course, are welcome, as are contributions of videos, etc.
