PODCAST: Apostate Alex exposes English mayor for sucking up to Scientology


No transcript...

Alex Barnes-Ross, a/k/a ‘Apostate Alex,’ continues to be on a roll.

Fresh off of his success with his three days of protest at Scientology’s IAS weekend, he dug into one of the details of the third day, the Sunday charity concert.

Images showed that East Grinstead’s mayor was there to pick up a large charity check, and then later at Twitter he defended his cozy relationship with Scientology.

In particular, the mayor pointed to Scientology’s large presence in town.

But Alex crunched the numbers and showed that Scientology’s percentage of the population in East Grinstead is well less than 1 percent. So why is the mayor going out of his way to keep Scientology happy?

We discussed this, as well as the upcoming event in Los Angeles, and once again we found Alex a delight to have on the podcast.
