Scientology Sunday Funnies: What's a little human trafficking between friends? - 2014-12-14
Welcome to another collection of Scientology Sunday Funnies! Each week, we post some of the better Scientology fundraising fliers we've been forwarded by our great tipsters.
This week, we wanted to start off with something that our commenters have been talking about - a Los Angeles Police Department gladhander, Captain Dave Storaker, who runs a Twitter feed that's about as smarmy as it gets. And the breathless way he promoted a "human trafficking" conference at Scientology's LA headquarters was pretty awful. Scientology itself was investigated by the FBI for human trafficking violations in 2009 and 2010, and that probe was derailed for unfortunate reasons.
But what better way to distract from your own rotten record of treating workers like indentured servants - including children - than to operate front groups that pretend they give a crap about "human rights"? It's kind of genius, when you think about it.
