Scientology Sunday Funnies: The apocalypse is here, and it is ideal - 2014-08-17
Branstetter smartly connects Narconon's grand jury problem with the massive lawsuit filed by the National Association of Forensic Counselors. The suit involves 82 defendants, including Scientology's leader, David Miscavige.
