As the Church of Scientology has increased its presence in downtown Clearwater, the business community has become less vocal in its criticism of the group.

Once the focus of fear and scorn, the subject of FBI investigations and criminal trials, the Scientologists now are welcomed by some merchants as a steady source of shoppers for downtown businesses, especially during slow summer months.

But others question whether the Scientologists are keeping other shoppers out of downtown and turning off potential tenants for downtown office space.
