Scientology's perfectly reasonable property portfolio

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

The New Yorker has an excellent article on the extensive range of Hollywood properties owned by the Church of Scientology. As you will see by reading the piece, there is absolutely no agenda behind this, they're just big fans of real estate and they've got a bit of cash to splash. Nothing wrong with that. No, really.

The anti-Scientologists will always be coming up with some sort of "controversy" about the Church. Of course the most controversial point would be this: Scientology works for its parishoners, its parishoners are successful enough to donate to causes that they approve of, and just like any other religion of the past 10,000 years, the Church accrues real estate.

That the Church's detractors include the pharmaceutical companies, who pay money to demonstrators to give an illusion of "controversy", should also be factored in. In fact, given the current global economic crisis, working for the pharmaceutical companies to protest against the Church of Scientology would appear to be a well-paying job!

This would also demonstrate the moral and philosophic depth of those so involved.
