Scientology responds not once, not twice, but three times to CNN.

Quote
(CNN) -- In response to CNN's request for comment on its story about Lawrence Wright's book "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief," the network received several letters from the Church of Scientology and its attorneys. Given the sensitive nature of the material in the book and the Church of Scientology's detailed response to CNN, CNN is making the church's responses available in full. The e-mail addresses and telephone numbers of individuals have been redacted.

Ha!  Those responses were too funny.  I wonder if CNN can coax someone from the church onto a live broadcast.  I doubt it though since Tommy Davis put both feet in his mouth claiming there was no such thing as disconnection as they characterized it.  Also, let's not forget the ex-wives club on display for Anderson Cooper where two of them said nearly the exact same line they had been drilled to say "I knew every inch of him"...

Part 2 is awesome!  I had to laugh when both Anderson and Larry were discussing the Freedom Magazine propaganda pieces in print and online that were specifically designed to smear each of them.

The Church just proves how loco en la cabeza they are.  Here's some more news of the day:

Another lawsuit.  I read the document and this one seems to have some teeth.
