“Paul Haggis Vs. The Church of Scientology”

"Paul Haggis Vs. The Church of Scientology"

Released late last night, I’ve been waiting patiently for this New Yorker expose on Scientology for some time now. Via an interview with ex-Scientology member Paul Haggis (who you’ve really got to hand it to for being the first celebrity to speak out like this…), it’s a massive piece (nearly 30,000 words), but it’s still definite required reading. Shedding light on what one can only imagine is the tip of a totally fucked up Scientology iceberg, The New Yorker‘s Lawrence Wright should probably watch his back after painting a very well-researched and very negative picture of the “religion,” and we should all enjoy the fruits of his labor and learn a few things about an organization that has gotten away with some remarkably bad things over the past 50 years.
