To the Editor:
Re “Breaking With Scientology” (front page, March 7), about two former Scientologists:
As a Scientologist for 35 years, I have been immeasurably helped by my courses and counseling in Scientology. I have also used what I have learned in Scientology to save lives, save marriages, get people off drugs, get children not to take drugs and promote human rights education. I have worked with people of all creeds on these issues.
These are the actual activities of an active Scientologist. I see no reason to profile two disgruntled former church members on your front page. Would a disgruntled Jew or Catholic get the same placement?
Why not describe all the good being done by Scientologists all over the world? Just because it’s not bad news?
