Sensibly Speaking Podcast #171: Scientology and the Nation of Islam – An Unholy Alliance


This week, and coincidentally with the timing of Leah’s show on the Nation of Islam, I am covering the improbable alliance between the Church of Scientology and the Nation of Islam. I discuss what I learned in looking into this, including the real history of the NOI, its racist nature and undeniable fact it is a destructive cult.
