(Professor Hugh B. Urban of the Ohio State University)

On Friday, we expressed our disappointment with Ohio State University professor Hugh Urban's newest paper, this time about Scientology's original OT 8 material, which we have also written about. We titled the piece "With Scientology at war in Clearwater, religious studies types still seeking its warm & fuzzy side." Hugh asked to send a response to our critical review, and we're glad to present it today, along with our own answer.

I guess I should be flattered that Tony Ortega has taken the time to read and comment on my work. However, I also found many parts of this piece problematic, and I would like to respond briefly to several points that are inaccurate and misleading. For the sake of space, I will limit my comments to the following three.
