PODCAST: Has Scientology nixed the protest's road closure? Alex has the update


Yesterday we told you that Alexander “Apostate Alex” Barnes-Ross had succeeded at getting the main road to Scientology’s UK headquarters shut down for his planned protest and march, making it a challenge for the Scientologists to get to their event, which begins on Friday.

We also had some fun with the news that Scientology celebrity and Dharma and Greg actress Jenna Elfman will be emceeing the Sunday night charity concert.

But last night we figured we better get on the horn with Alex again after he told us there was some troubling news: He was getting conflicting reports about whether Scientology had managed to use some leverage with local officials to get the protest’s road closure shut down.

Doesn’t that sound just like Scientology? Well, we thought you’d like to see our conversation as we got the latest from Alex. You can listen to the podcast above or watch the video version below at our YouTube channel.
