F0.png Shedding light on Scientology's dark side January 9, 1980, Eugene Patterson, Scientology: An in-depth profile of a new force in Clearwater, St. Petersburg Times

For four years The St. Petersburg Times has printed fragments of the Scientology story as our reporters painstakingly pieced it together in the face of unending obstacles. Now Staff Writer Charles Stafford is pulling together the whole story in one coherent presentation -- or as near to coherence as the cockeyed facts of the matter will permit.

We know now that The Times was placed at the top of the cult's "enemies" list shortly after the Scientologists started buying up millions of dollars worth of property in downtown Clearwater -- vast tracts of the sparkling little city. They moved a major headquarters off a ship at sea and landed it in our county seat.
