Blog: Scientology's Response to Episode 2 - 2017-08-24
As has become their practice, within minutes of the show airing, scientology puts up a new smear site, with videos from family members — in this case Marie Bilheimer and Aaron Poulin's mothers, and Tayler Tweed's mother and brother.
They are sadly predictable — failing to address the issues raised in the stories and instead attempting to discredit Marie and Lauren (and Leah, Tony Ortega and me). Marie, according to Aaron's mother should "look in the mirror" and Lauren, according to Cathy Tweed, wasn't really even a friend of Tayler's.
Lame stuff. But can you get inside the head of the people who think this is a good way for a "church" to respond to tragedy? Once again, not a shred of compassion or concern for anything other than the "reputation" of scientology and "attacking the attacker."
