New York Post Takes Fake News Lower

There you are. Passing on the blatant hate speech of an “anonymous source” in an effort to slander an entire religious group. You should be ashamed.

Mr. Lynch,

In a world full of fake news that is sad, even hopeless, you have managed to take fake news and “report” it to still lower depths.

I didn’t think it was possible. But there you are. Passing on the blatant hate speech of an “anonymous source” in an effort to slander an entire religious group. You should be ashamed.

As a Scientologist, parent and grandparent, with healthy, happy children and grandchildren who are Scientologists, I am deeply offended, and I am not alone. Your article is offensive to Scientologists everywhere—parents and children.

Please immediately remove the hateful propaganda from your article.
