Inside Scientology

Janet Reitman has written an excellent article for Rolling Stone magazine called “Inside Scientology.” She began with no cooperation from the Church of Scientology (not an unusual state of affairs), but then was given access to Scientology leadership, tours of facilities, and was able to interview current Scientologists. My first reaction on hearing about this was to suspect it would be something of a superficial puff piece like some of the entertainment news TV shows have done, but she did an excellent job of describing Scientology’s history, beliefs, practices, and human impact in a relatively short article.
