Millionaire's bizarre feud with Scientology escalates - 1998-08-03
So is Boston financier Robert S. Minton an arch-enemy of the Church of Scientology or a prospective member?
The multimillionaire, who has infuriated the church with his financial support of its enemies, says top Scientologists recently tried to recruit him as a member.
Scientology leaders deny offering membership but acknowledge they made overtures to help Minton because they say he has an "emotional problem." Minton - whose projects include bankrolling a lawsuit filed on behalf of Lisa McPherson, a Scientologist who died in Clearwater under mysterious circumstances - told the Scientologists to keep their help to themselves.
