Scientology front-group Narconon’s desperate response to NBC report

Yesterday two former executives of Narconon Arrowhead, a Scientology-linked drug treatment center in Oklahoma, exposed what they call deceitful marketing techniques and under-qualified staff.

Now you’ll understand why an outfit that calls itself ‘Friends of Narconon’ is misusing the name of one of those executives, Lucas Catton, in classic Scientology-on-the-attack fashion.

Update: On his own website Catton has responded to the lies published about him by Scientology and Narconon

Our parent site, Apologetics Index, has long referred to Scientology as a hate group — in reference to the cult’s lengthy history of hate- and harassment activities.

Like the Church of Scientology itself, the Narconon front group find itself under ever-growing scrutiny and legal pressure.

In response the cult always does two things:

  • It spews out a flood of self-laudatory press releases, and
  • It attacks its critics

None of the that will stop Scientology’s rapid decline.

Meanwhile, for those following news about Scientology, here’s a website that attempts to filter out the cult’s spam so that you can concentrate on the real story.

As for the cult’s personal attacks, it really cannot do anything to stop itself from behaving like that. It’s unethical behavior is based on the writings of Scientology ‘god’ and founder L. Ron Hubbard, a fantasist who encouraged and condoned hate and harassment activities.

As for Narconon, here’s what you need to know:
