Welcome to The Wog Blog, a new daily feature from XENU TV. At least I hope it will be daily. I’ll be covering the world of Scientology and keeping you abreast of the latest news.

When asked by reporters if Ferrell was worried about repercussions, Ferrell just quipped “In anticipation of encountering some criticism, I just went ahead and joined the Church of Scientology.”

Scientology launched a massive campaign to have the line removed.
Nowadays, “South Park” can produce an entire episode exposing the previously secret upper level materials of OTIII and not only do they not get sued but Trey Parker and Matt Stone receive a Peabody Award and an Emmy nomination for their efforts.

For instance, a talented young man named Brett Hanover wrote and directed a feature film about Scientology called “The Bridge.” Check it out and check back tomorrow for more.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
