Church of Scientology's statement in response to "Going Clear" documentary

This week, the new documentary Going Clear brought big ratings to HBO. The network said that the film was watched by more than 1.7 million people, becoming HBO's highest rated documentary in nearly a decade.

In response to allegations made by filmmaker Alex Gibney, the Church of Scientology released the following statement to MORE:

Mr. Gibney refused to answer over a dozen letters from the Church asking for an opportunity to address any allegations; he never even sent one fact to check and he shunned 25 people who traveled to New York to meet with him with relevant answers to every single allegation that is in the film. These individuals included the children, former spouses, superiors and colleagues who worked for years alongside his sources.

Because Mr. Gibney has remained anything but objective, the Church has compiled the unvarnished truth in the form of video footage, court documents, publicly available records and testimonials by pertinent individuals and parishioners worldwide who do represent Scientology, and were intentionally ignored by Mr. Gibney and HBO.

The Church says evidence to debunk claims made in Going Clear can be found on a website its set up called freedommag.org.
