Australian media outs Scientologist behind 'super city' plans near Melbourne - 2015-12-16
We want to thank our friends Down Under, who sent us news early this morning about an intriguing story breaking in Melbourne. Aussie publication The Age has revealed that there are plans for a "super city" development in a suburb west of town known as East Werribee, a massive development that will include huge residential towers and an educational hub featuring overseas universities. It's meant to be an innovation hub built from scratch and flourishing in 20 or 30 years.
But hang on, The Age says, the businessman leading the company which has received "preferred bidder" status on the project from the local government, a man named Bill Zheng (pictured above), "has strong links to the Church of Scientology."
That certainly got our attention. We're always interested when media talk about "links" to Scientology. No one has "links" to Scientology. They are either in or they are not, right?
