Charles Barkley becomes a slam dunk photo opportunity for Scientology - 2019-09-16
Our thanks to the tipster who helps us keep an eye on the sneaky ways that Scientology's "Foundation for a Drug-Free World" infiltrates various institutions and events, looking for opportunities to rope in unsuspecting politicians and law enforcement officials. And yes, athletes.
This time, they really landed a big fish.
Yes, that's NBA legend Charles Barkley being gladhanded by a couple of minions from Drug-Free World at a golf tournament in August — OT 8 Scientologist John Chan on the left and OT 5 Matt Hines on the right. We just received the photo and haven't reached out to Sir Charles, but we're going to guess that Barkley had no idea that he was posing for a photo that the Church of Scientology was very happy to get.
