Scientology Raided, Smacked Down in Court, and Accused of Killing Trees -- a Thursday Roundup - 2011-10-06
Yes, the video we're embedding here is in Russian, (Update: there are now English subtitles, press the "cc" button) but the action is understandable enough: Moscow law enforcement raiding the Church of Scientology there, and getting rather medieval on its locked doors.
We made a rare foray out of the underground bunker this week, and what a strange trip it's been. On a school visit, we created controversy just by our very presence, and it doesn't even have to do with our Scientology watching! A note about that later. For now, we hear the cats are OK back at the bunker, so we're going to try to keep to our regular schedule with our weekly Thursday 2pm Stats report, in which we decide whether it's been an upstat or downstat week for the church.
First, to Moscow, where things seem to be getting rather hardcore for Scientology's continued existence.
