Romano: Scientology's problems on Clearwater land deal are of its own making - 2017-04-29
What if it had been any religious organization other than the Church of Scientology being snubbed by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in a land purchase deal?
I can't say for certain, but I assume there would have been some consternation. A lot of hand wringing. Maybe even some people in positions of prominence talking about religious discrimination.
After all, the Scientology folks offered more than triple the price that the city of Clearwater agreed to pay the aquarium for a coveted piece of downtown land.
