The Last Time I Saw Paris
The local paper for Scientology’s spiritual Mecca (Clearwater, Florida) is the St. Pete Times. Today two Scientologists write in to respond to an article about a man who has been videotaping Scientology for a cable access tv show called “Cult Watch.” One of the letter writers is the owner of the One Stoppe Shoppe, a downtown 7/11 type of store:
Unbelievably, your newspaper has hit a new low with staff writer Robert Farley’s sympathetic article on Shawn Lonsdale, the (nearly famous) anti-Scientologist. The article portrays his statements as incontrovertible facts and uses them to smear Scientology and the reputations of Scientologists. This is an old tactic of the St. Petersburg Times, but seldom have you quoted or presented a less credible source.
Farley writes that Lonsdale is filming a “documentary” on Scientology, when even Lonsdale himself calls it a “pseudo-documentary.”
His riveting footage of Scientology staffers crossing the street to go for lunch is hardly likely to win any journalism prizes. One would think that even a bottom feeder like Farley would hesitate to champion someone as disgusting as Shawn Lonsdale. Farley accepts and seems to excuse Lonsdale’s performing oral sex on strange men as something he had to do when “money was tight.” Why doesn’t he just get a job?
The Times has no qualms in taking his side so you can once again fan the flames of bigotry and prejudice in our city.

Paris is no stranger to visitors of XENU TV. Take a look at this video and you can see why the Scientologists don’t want to be immortalized on tape.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
