Scientology’s Australian recruit struggle


Ben Weir reported on the Church of Scientology for the Sydney Morning Herald, quoting a recent defector:

“Australian recruits have dwindled to virtually zero as media coverage and access to the Internet has ensured the truth about the cult is well-known here” Mr Schofield said.


It’s also a relief to see the Internet being used to disseminate truth, especially with all the conspiracy theories and alternative facts swaying public opinion and policy, right up to Prime Ministers and Presidents. I get so jaded with that dull, pandering nonsense I forget about the Internet’s capacity for good.
