Scientologist on Clearwater downtown board does a classic 'dead agenting' of Mark Bunker - 2019-10-11
Now, to understand what ensued, it helps to know a few different sets of circumstances that led up to this being a pretty remarkable evening. For example, it's not the first time that Bunker has spoken at various Clearwater government meetings. Even before he announced his intention to run in the next campaign for city council, Bunker has appeared at council meetings and the downtown development board, expressing his concerns about Scientology's influence on the lovely beach town and its dead downtown.
And his interactions with at least one of the people on the board Wednesday night — its chairman, Scientologist and "One Stoppe Shoppe" owner Paris Morfopoulous — goes back much further. When Bunker was a part of the Lisa McPherson Trust filming activism around Scientology's buildings in the year 2000, one of the people he ran into was a very aggressive Morfopoulos, who ragged Bunker about his weight, and asked him if his appetites also included sex with children and sex with barnyard animals.
