CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Church of Scientology invites religious studies students and teachers to come to the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater and research Scientology there. According to the Scientology Information Center’s manager Amber Skjelset, religious students from half a dozen educational institutions have visited the Scientology Information Center to research Scientology since its opening in July 2015 to their benefit.
The manager said that students have been coming from as far away as Russia and the United Kingdom and have joined over 6,500 people from 20 different countries to find out about Scientology at the Information Center.
“Some of the commonly posed questions cover, ‘How do people become Scientologists’, ‘Do Scientologists believe in God?’, ‘Can members of other faiths also be Scientologists?’, and ‘What are the basic ceremonies of the Church of Scientology?’ said Center Manager Skjelset.
The Scientology Information Center is housed in the historic Clearwater Building which is located at 500 Cleveland Street. It offers guests the opportunity to peruse 4 audio-visual informational displays covering basic Scientology concepts, as well as a full biographical display on the life and legacy of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s Founder. The interactive displays feature nearly 300 videos; all of which can be viewed in 17 languages, with subtitles for the hearing impaired.
One display features the broad humanitarian initiatives supported by Scientologists and non-Scientologists the world over. Each of these humanitarian initiatives now has its own facility just steps from the Scientology Information Center. Skjelset says, “The additional centers offer solutions to tackle issues that plague communities; drug abuse, moral decay, crime and more, providing educational materials and tools which address these situations and bring about results. Scientologists are dedicated to helping our communities eliminate these ills.”
All of the centers are open from 10 am to 10 pm.
One Dunedin resident stated, “It is very important for people to have a place where they can find out what Scientology is for themselves. It’s better to find out from the source, rather than rumor.”
