The Church of Scientology remains firm on their stance the documentary should not see the light of day, because its a false account. With all the mystery swirling around about Scientology religion or some may even allege cult, inquiring minds want to know. I’ve seen a few movies both fiction and non-fiction about families or individuals who joined Scientology and in all the movies one factor remained the same. Every person at some point or another felt like they were in a secret society of sorts and they had rules for members with some harsh or unusual consequences. Well whatever happen’s within the walls of Scientology after the documentary film open’s the Church firmly states the public won’t have facts but fiction, and the religion will remain a mystery.
As Alex Gibney‘s documentary Going Clear opens around the country, the Church of Scientology is making its final stand against the film in the form of a five-page letter to The Hollywood Reporter.
The letter opens, “In two hours this film racks up more falsehoods, errors, embellished tales and blatant omissions than were committed by Rolling Stone, Brian Williams and Bill O’Reilly combined. By our calculation, the film on average includes at least one major error every two minutes.”
THR initially reached out to the Church to request a viewing of the documentary with top Church officials, but Church spokeswoman Karin Pouw declined this offer. Instead, she asked for a list of questions about the film, which she would “be happy” to answer, so that’s what THR sent: a list of twenty questions regarding specific allegations in Gibney’s work, such as the claim that L. Ron Hubbard once said starting a religion is the easiest way to make money.
