Church of Scientology attacks investigators and critics — Washington Post
More: link
Type: Press
Author(s): Ron Shaffer
Source: Washington Post
The Church of Scientology is an organization that fervidly shuns investigations. When probed, it attacks the investigators. When criticized, it makes the critics pay. Church attempts to stifle investigations and criticism include lawsuits, harassment, frameups and attempts to have critics jailed, or at least enjoined from talking about Scientology.
