(and there’s nothing they can do about it)
Since its founding in 1953, the Church of Scientology has faced criticism from every quarter imaginable on just about every aspect of its philosophy, its organizations, and its founder. As the decades passed, the criticism evolved in a way that reflected the development of mass media communication. There was more of it, it was reaching more people, and was easily accessible. Then with the advent of the internet, Scientology criticism experienced a quantum leap that caught the Church flat-footed. It was a phenomenon from which they have never fully recovered.
