Blog: (VIDEO) Critical Q&A 67 - 2016-07-24
The weekly show where I answer your questions based on what is left for me in the comment sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, th questions I take up are:
(1) I was wondering about Scientology's tax-exempt status. You always hear that if Scientology lost its tax-exempt status in the U.S. that it would pretty much be game over for them yet it seems like in 90% of the countries they operate in around the world, they are not recognized as a religion and don't get tax breaks. If being tax exempt here is such an issue, how is that not a hindering factor for them everywhere else? Do they funnel all the money from Europe, South America and elsewhere to the safety of the American tax shelter? Do they enjoy tax exemption anywhere else or just the U.S.? Would losing it truly end them or just really hurt them?
(2) Is Scientology effective against drug and alcohol addiction? Have people ever used Scientology to over come drugs and alcohol and become clean and sober?
