With an organization as controversial as Scientology, you have to
admit they had it coming.  The only way to be an organization in that
kind of controversy is to simply open up and let them all inspect your
doings.  This isn't a battle in courts, this is a battle in the public
image, something which cannot be truly defended by privacy.  I think
people assume a worst-case mentality when given information that's
incomplete.  With Scientology's history of nondisclosure, it only
follows that many suspicious citizens are in favor of completely
dismantling the organization.

I'm not stating that they're evil.  I'm not stating that they're good,
either.  I'm stating that I don't know their disposition, but I can
understand the motivations of others in trying to pry open their
history to know what we all crave: truth.
