Blog: Critical Q&A 202 - 2019-03-10
The weekly show where I answer viewer questions left for me in the comment sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) In continuation of the question I asked you last week, you made your point why the IRS should investigate the Church of Scientology to determine if it is still eligible to maintain its tax exempt status. However, as you and other former Scientologists have made clear, the Church of Scientology terrorizes its opponents. What was also made clear on how the Church of Scientology got its tax exempt status is that it countersued the IRS, bogged it down with paperwork, and went after the individual IRS employees involved in the case. People like you who publicly criticize Scientology knew what you were getting yourselves into. Should the IRS investigate Scientology and the case lands on some poor unsuspecting IRS agent's desk, what would you tell him/her on what to expect and how to handle Scientology's reaction?
(2) I've been watching a lot of documentaries on Shelly Miscavige. My question is given the numerous new properties that the Church seems to acquire each year, is it possible that they could have moved her to one of the newer and more secluded properties? And is there any way of finding out which properties the church actually owns, through things like tax filings or something like that?
