Three House members this week helped to open the first-ever Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in Washington, drawing politics into the controversial movement just as a new movie inspired by church founder L. Ron Hubbard opens.

Reps. Dan Burton, R-Ind., Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and Danny Davis, D-Ill., spoke at the Wednesday opening on Dupont Circle. Also joining in the opening ceremony was Liz Gibson, a senior program manager at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The church said it needs a national office due to its worldwide growth.
