Question Scientology

I am reading a very interesting book on Scientology called "Beyond Belief: My secret life inside Scientology" by Jenna Miscavige Hill. I makes we wonder. I would assume with a population of over 100,000 that there are Scientologists here. I also would assume that the closest church would be in Orlando. In any case I'm just curious. By the way the author is the niece of the present head of the church, David Miscavige.

There seems to be one in Ocala. http://www.scientologynews.org/press...ens-ocala.html Founded by the Travoltas, no less, in May 2011.

I believe Clearwater, FL is the home location (or mother church, if you will) of Scientology.

Actually it is in Los Angeles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Scientology

You do see a lot of these people in downtown Clearwater. I talked to a reporter from their Freedom magazine Investigative Journalism Stories & Articles 2015 | Freedom Magazine probably around 2003 or 2004 but decided I did not want them to do a story on my 224 613 Project and some of the hurdles thrown at me in 1991 and 2000 which do fit in with their antagonism towards psychiatry. I do believe that some unscrupulous people will do anything to win and that includes using the mental health system as a weapon. But, I do not share the Scientologist's general attack on the use of drugs to help people with mental illness or with other problems. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scient...and_psychiatry

I was e-mailing everyone I could think of back in the early 2000s which included the Freedom magazine. The reporter was responding to one of these.

The Scientologist reporter was calling from Los Angeles.

I like wise solutions to problems that meet with the complexity of the real world and do not paint things with very broad brushes. If you want to see why I was doing all that Google Taltarzac725. It should explain things but will take some effort for people to understand what was going on.

I thought that the Scientologists would put a huge spin on what I told the reporter that would be at cross purposes of what I was trying to do and still am with this 224 613 Project.

OK, someone has to say this: WHO CARES?

Maybe when they actually find alien DNA in our genome, I'll change my mind
