COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE

Young’s ignorant coverage gives a platform to lies and targets Scientologists for their religion. Such discrimination has no place in 2020.”
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
It is the most plain, by-the-book exercise in bigotry you have ever seen. And it’s also the very definition of persecution, especially coming from a self-styled “journalist” with followers who don’t know any better than to trust the hallucinatory fabrications he asserts as fact.
