L. Ron Hubbard: YouTube Messiah
He cured his own blindness! He jumps through fire! He beats up schoolteachers!
No wonder Scientologists love L. Ron Hubbard. Their own propaganda videos make him sound like a goddamn superhero.
Here, in five parts, is an extremely paranoid public-relations video, presumably created by the Church of Scientology and apparently narrated by Church President David Miscavige, that has made its way to YouTube in the last few days. Get it while it's hot, as these things have a habit of coming down rather quickly once the Church gets wind of them.
A rebuttal to these can be found at Scientology Lies.
