Mercury News—Get Straight Facts on Scientology

Let me do a compare: reading your article, and others like it, is akin to asking a Jew to read Mein Kampf when seeking to understand the Torah. Who would do it? No one. This is why your article, and others like it, are never opened, never read and are dismissed out of hand.

Ms. Ross:

I looked over your article of September 19 and am impelled to clear something up since you seem awash in misunderstandings of Scientology and Scientologists. Simply, you get your news from individuals who know nothing about this subject and have a malicious intent to disseminate fallacy on it.

Let me do a compare: reading your article, and others like it, is akin to asking a Jew to read Mein Kampf when seeking to understand the Torah. Who would do it? No one. This is why your article, and others like it, are never opened, never read and are dismissed out of hand. They are gibberish to any thinking person, let alone a Scientologist.

There is so much more to Scientology than the falsehoods you publish.

Take our Volunteer Ministers and their life-saving work with the people of Rockport and Houston, Texas, and the same in Miami, Tampa and Clearwater, Florida, and more recently the work they did to free survivors trapped in the rubble of Mexico City’s fallen buildings. You find these stories at www.volunteerministers.org. There is much, much more, but this will give you a glimpse of the real world of Scientology, not the fake, make-believe world conjured up by PR firm sock puppets.

I strongly recommend you search out the truth of this subject. Actually dig for yourself and do not accept the pre-digested, force-fed rubbish of some of your contemporaries. You will be much more successful if you do and will generate copy of which you can be proud.

Sincerely,
Alicia Selverson
