CBC—Does Your Christian Readership Support Your Vendetta Against Religions?

The CBC allows its “reporter” to go out and fabricate stories to apparently support the CBC’s own agenda. I wonder what your largely Christian readership thinks of your campaign against religion.

Dear Ombudsman,

I read with dismay another discriminatory article about my religion, published by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, a taxpayer-funded Canadian enterprise.

Obviously, you have not closely looked at the fact that we Scientologists have been working overtime to provide calm and assurance under these unusual circumstances, to the neighborhoods around our churches, giving help wherever possible. This is the primary duty of a Volunteer Minister. Instead the CBC allows its “reporter” to go out and fabricate stories to apparently support the CBC’s own agenda. I wonder what your largely Christian readership thinks of your campaign against religion.

I also wonder at how you can forward inaccuracies and outright lies about minority religions when the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms specifically grants freedom of religion to all its citizens. And your own publication, as mandated by the 1991 Broadcasting Act, must among other things, “actively contribute to the flow and exchange of cultural expression” and “reflect the multicultural nature of Canada.”

A national media corporation should fairly represent all its citizens and not take on the attributes of a tabloid by publishing sensational and harmful lies about groups which only promote betterment.

Since injustice, corruption and other societal and corporate ills almost always trickle down from the top, I am urging the leadership of CBC to take a closer look at how you are allowing your organization to portray all of Canada’s multicultural, multispiritual, multiethnic and multiracial groups. Someone from each of those groups is a Canadian Scientologist and you are hurting those good people when you publish lies.

Sincerely,


Eva Mahoney
