(2012's) Top 25 People Crippling Scientology, Nos. 14-16 - 2012-08-26
We're moving Carnegie Mellon University professor Dave Touretzky up in our list this year. Touretzky is known for his many years of gathering and hosting information at his websites that describe Scientology's secret upper-level teachings and other detailed research. But it's Touretzky's dedication to getting out information about Scientology's drug treatment program, Narconon, which is making a big difference this year as the church's rehab centers have become the center of controversy. We've referred to Touretzky's pages often in our stories, and we hope readers use them to come to the understanding that Narconon's issues are longstanding and systemic.
