Scientology tries to sneak into Bowdon, Georgia. Get's thrown out of town!

---

NarCONon is Scientology! Forward: For a systematic, detailed, professional exposure of Scientology's "Narconon" front group, visit the Narconon Exposed web site.

Scientology tried to sneak into a small township in Bowdon, Georgia to set up one of their "Narconon" facilities. Once their true identity became known, local citizens launched an intensive local education campaign to cover what Scientology's history has been, and what their Narconon facility would really mean to local citizens.

Local citizens and the Carrollton Star News exposed Scientology and drove the cult out of their town. The newspaper articles that the local paper produced to alert citizens about Scientology are provided here along with just a few of the numerous e-mails that local activists exchanged with world-wide activists. The incident was another good example of how the Internet community really can be a world-wide community that bans together (pun intended) for the common good.

These are indexed in rough chronological order and I've had to censor some of the information to protect the health and safety of some of the local citizens of Bowdon.

What this series shows is that people can make a different in their local communities and that the key to keeping one's community safe from these types of scams is information. Scientology tried to pull the whool over these good people's eyes presumably with the hope that nobody would use the Internet to find out who they were before it was far too late to stop them. Scientology snuck into Clearwater, Florida under the assumed name "United Churches of Florida," the cult became entrenched, and the one-time vacation garden town of Clearwater has never recovered.
