What is Scientology? was the fourth most “what is…?”
question asked on Google in 2012. It is a very popular
subject and many people want to find out more about it.
However, given we live in an age of science, Scientology

easy target for criticism.
It is for these reasons I have
sent you a new Scientology Media Guide which answers many of
the questions asked about Scientology. It is for your use
and there are links to external websites where more
information can be found.
I hope you find it informative
and if it can be stored as a reference in your media files I
would really appreciate it.
