Hubbard Love - 2007-02-17
In an effort to sift fact from fiction, I've come to the Church of Scientology's massive new London HQ to talk to three of its leading British members - about their beliefs, primarily, but also about their reaction to the various controversies that swirl around this curious institution. Do they really believe in aliens? Why do they venerate Hubbard to the extent that he is mythologised and his achievements (to my eyes at least) embellished? Do they accept that free speech allows me the right to mock or is mild scepticism all I am allowed? And what's behind the hatred of psychiatry?
