BILLBOARD 2.0 - Phil and Willie Jones set their sights on Scientology's mecca in Florida - 2016-06-11
Fresh off of their media conquest in Los Angeles, former Scientologists Phil and Willie Jones have a new target for their bright idea to highlight Scientology's toxic "disconnection" policy with a prominent billboard near a major church center.
In April, the couple paid for a billboard in the Echo Park neighborhood of L.A. after crowdfunding about $12,000, in large part with the help of the readers of this website. The billboard had a positive message rather than a critical one, asking members of Scientology to call their loved ones. It also provided a link to a website that explained how the church splits up families by enforcing disconnection.
It's disconnection that keeps Phil and Willie from seeing their own two grown children, Emily and Mike, who are both workers in Scientology's "Sea Organization," which asks its members to sign billion-year contracts and work for pennies an hour.
