Scientologists Say Controversy Misrepresents Beliefs - 1992-09-27
Controversy over the Narconon Chilocco drug-treatment facility near Newkirk and its ties to the Church of Scientology kept Oklahomans in the dark about the religion and its contributions to society, a leading Scientologist says.
Saying the smoke has cleared, the Rev. Heber Jentzsch, president of the Church of Scientology International, recently came to Oklahoma City to discuss and defend the religious philosophy founded 40 years ago by the late L. Ron Hubbard.
Jentzsch said that contrary to the perception held by some people in society and the media, the Church of Scientology is a positive force in communities.
