Scientology "Freedom Mag" wins an Award.

Scientology Freedom Magazine earns award from Religion Communicators Council:

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
Known for its investigative reporting in the public interest, Freedom Magazine, the human rights journal of the Church of Scientology, has been awarded a Religion Communicators Council (RCC) DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Award of Excellence for its 2011 Special Report, The New Yorker: What a Load of Balderdash.

What a load of balderdash indeed.I wonder if the Religion Communicators Council were required to do L. Ron Hubbard's Communication course first.After many hours of 'command intention' ,staring into the eye's of another until your eye's are sore and tears are streaming down your face,reading nonsensical paragraphs from Alice in Wonderland repeatedly over and over again,keeping a straight face whilst being "bullbaited" and finally learning after the question is repeated for hours on end, 'Birds do fly' and amazingly 'fish do swim'. Incredibly after all that, you would think anyone in their right mind would do anything to get the hell out of there, "You want an award, have one". But unfortunately for many that's just the start.

Thank goodness for people like Lawrence Wright and many others who are not afraid to write about Scientology and it's mind warping secrets.

Time magazine picked up the top honor tonight at the Ellies in New York, singled out by the American Society of Magazine Editors for print and digital achievements, including the cover with Ted Soqui's picture of an Occupy LA protester. The New Yorker won in reporting for Lawrence Wright's story on director and screenwriter Paul Haggis' fight with the Church of Scientology. That was the category in which Mike Kessler's Los Angeles magazine piece on Mitrice Richardson was a finalist. New York won three of the National Magazine Awards, the New Yorker won two. O - The Oprah Magazine, Inc., House Beautiful and IEEE Spectrum all won their first Ellies.
