We believe a free press is vital to democracy and that its members have a duty to safeguard fundamental rights.
Accordingly, Scientologists are vocal in their demands for accurate, unbiased journalism. We believe discriminatory rhetoric, misinformation and hate speech have no place in “reporting”—about any group.
At its best, responsible journalism enhances a society by empowering people with truth—the truth they need to make decisions in their lives and take responsibility for their communities.
At its worst, irresponsible journalism marginalizes communities, fuels bigotry and incites hate. It can thereby endanger lives.
On behalf of all religions and all people, we fight for honest journalism.
