34-Year Scientologist appalled at ABC’s agenda

Do not malign my religion and spread lies about our treatment of children.

Dear Mr. Harris,

I am appalled at hearing that you will be airing a program in which Scientology is pictured as not treating children well. This is outrageous.

I have been a Scientologist for 34 years and raised my daughter using Scientology. She is a well-adjusted, happy adult who spent her childhood loved and respected.

Through my parenting success (which I attribute to Scientology teachings) my daughter has learned to respect others, question life and explore her own path. She did not go through the usual drama of teenage years that most young people do. Scientologists care for children with communication and respect.

Do not malign my religion and spread lies about our treatment of children.
