PAUL HAGGIS TELLS WHY HE BECAME FREAKED OUT BY SCIENTOLOGY
We’re always happy when another negative Scientology story is printed and this time director Paul Haggis, (“Million Dollar Baby” and “Crash”) who left the cult, spilled the beans to New Yorker magazine. He covered a lot of familiar territory and pointed out that the Scientology schools (like the one Will and Jada Smith started) give limited and highly questionable educations and emphasized that most high ranking Scientologists are school drop-outs. (When Haggis’s daughter left Scientology school at 11 to attend a regular school she was surprised to find out she was “illiterate.”) Besides all the usual weirdness, the article also says the FBI is investigating the cult for “human trafficking abuses.” Good. Now what we need is the IRS to force this cult to pay taxes. If it means ALL religions must be taxed- so be it! One more thing – Haggis says “These people have long memories” and he bets that within 2 years we’ll be reading a scandal about him that seems to have nothing to do with the church.
