Oh look, Scientology started a blog, and it already won an award - 2016-12-18
Rod Keller is back, keeping an eye on Scientology's social media effort and front groups. This week, he's got another hot one...
In September, Scientology launched a new website, ScientologyReligion.org, "A Comprehensive Overview of the Background, Theology and Religious Practice of The Scientology Religion." Its purpose is to "safepoint" Scientology, a policy created by founder L. Ron Hubbard to garner allies that would create a safe space for expansion, to protect the organization against prosecution or government restrictions.
The new website features numerous documents arguing that Scientology is a legitimate religion, and that its "religious freedom" is threatened. The site also has a blog. One of the recent entries celebrates President Obama signing the International Religious Freedom Act into law, as predicted in last Sunday's article.
