From The Sunday Times in London:
That’s cosmic – Blair gives lift to Scientology
AT least somebody still thinks that Tony Blair is an image-booster.
Supporters of the church of Scientology have got him to pose unwittingly with a DVD promoting the aims of L Ron Hubbard, its founder.
A picture of the prime minister, standing beside a high-ranking Scientologist, appears on an American website popular with supporters of the controversial church.
The photo was taken in the garden of the Catholic church attended by the Blair family during their holiday in Barbados last summer.
The DVD, Youth for Human Rights, plays regularly in the foyer of Scientology’s new London headquarters and bears a quotation from Hubbard, who taught that humans are descended from beings from a distant galaxy.
It illustrates the 1948 United Nations declaration of human rights — with one boy supposedly exercising his freedom of thought by saying: “I believe in aliens, of course.”
Like usually, Blair follows Bush.
Especially George’s brother Jeb Bush in this case.
And his fellow Florida Republican Ros-Lehtinen.
