Scientology? I don't know where you got that from.

et voila:

I am really getting sick from this kind of people. I had a real bad experience with a scientologist at my work many years ago

So therefore this is a no-go area for sure for me. If others are fine with this, it's their problem, but I cannot understand that Leica is supporting this.

Scientology is a forbidden sect in Germany.

So go and buy his products and support this terrible organization


I'm not sure why I hadn't come across this until today but I just happened to be on his site this morning looking at the hoods and found his archived stuff from the 90s. I got to around 1997 and it shows him attending Scientology events. That got my attention. Then I found the article you posted and then I found the bizarre interview his wife Joy Villa does with Andreas Kaufman.

If being Scientologists weren't bad enough she's all for the Trump presidency as is clearly evident with this release last month.

It boggles the mind!

My mom bought Dianetics back when it first came out and I thought it was a total joke. I also have had strange and heated encounters with Scientologists over the years. I think they're dangerous and I cannot advocate enough against them.

Then there's this whole stuff with Steve Huff. I had no idea he did that ridiculous ghost hunting crap. Also just discovered the site this morning.

Who are these people?!

Profiteers, apparently.
