But unfortunately, the Church of Scientology didn’t let that happen.
On Sunday, churches of Scientology around the world will meet protest. I am anxiously awaiting the outcome of tomorrow’s events.
Because I am a supporter of free speech and have researched for weeks what members of the church have done to cover up this and other horrific crimes, I encourage these people in their efforts and hope everything goes peacefully.
I respect the right to one’s beliefs. I cannot respect those beliefs used to hide criminal activities. The way the church is run today must stop.
Meanwhile, here’s a speech from 2000 by David Miscavige, current head of the CoS, in which he tries to put a positive spin on the Lisa McPherson case – neglecting to mention that she was kept for 17 days against her will by Scientologists before arriving dead at a hospital.
Tomorrow’s events are meant to speak up for Lisa, because she unfortunately died without a voice.
Fortunately there are no churches of Scientology in my state, so I’ll be sitting here waiting as the events unfold.
