Sharing a blog, “Scientology vs. Science Fiction,”  from the STAND League website written by Scientologist Wil Seabrook.  I was born in the South. There’s a kind of running joke about how someone in the South can insult you so politely you’re not even upset about it (if you even notice at all). Something along the lines of, “Bless your heart, have you gained weight? It looks so good on you I hardly noticed…” Uh, thank you, I think? That kind… Read more

Here’s another of Wil Seabrook’s insightful blogs about Scientology, “Who Are Scientologists, Anyway?” It was originally published on the website of the STAND League. It feels like there are an infinite number of choices for entertainment on my TV and other devices these days, and yet I find myself increasingly restless searching for content that will entertain and inspire.

Wil Seabrook, who blogs for STAND (Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination) answers the question, “Are Scientologists Told What to Think,” published here with the permission of STAND. One ridiculous criticism I sometimes hear or read about my church is that Scientologists are told what to think about various subjects.
