In a February 11 article in the Business Post, freelance journalist Catherine Healy turns to known anti-Scientologists to comment on an upcoming facility for the internationally acknowledged Narconon, a drug rehabilitation program supported by Scientologists.
Business Post readers are misled by the characterization of John McGhee and Samantha Hicks as credible “observers.” They are both virulent anti-Scientologists:
Narconon is a drug-free withdrawal, detoxification and rehabilitation program that uses L. Ron Hubbard’s technology to help individuals recover from the devastation of drug addiction, a goal it has pursued for more than half a century, prompting more than 160 government agencies and organizations to partner with Narconon globally. Scientologists actively sponsor and support the establishment of Narconon centers worldwide.
STAND condemns Catherine Healy’s misuse of her journalistic platform to serve as a mouthpiece for known antireligious bigots and their hateful rhetoric.
