    Default Daily Mail apologizes to Will Smith about his Scientology school

    I was hesitant to post this because it's a very short article. I can't find the article that this apology is referring to on the Daily Mail website.
    An apology to Will Smith and the New Village Leadership Academy

    Contrary to saying last week that the New Village Leadership Academy in Los Angeles is a Church of Scientology school in fact we are assured that the academy, founded by the actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, is secular, with no religious affiliation and welcomes children from all backgrounds.

    Apologies for our misunderstanding.

    They welcome the cash of children from all backgrounds. They might go in as christians, hindus or whatever, but they'll come out brainwashed little scibots with a sub-standard education.

    Oh we understand completely. Scientology is a cult, not a religion and so long as the kiddies' parents pony up plenty of ca$h they Co$bots are happy to brainwash anyone. This is the place Suri Cruise is being sent to right? Nuff said.

    When the school was established, it was publicized as one that would use the Scientology education discipline in it. Not new. That the DM is crawling away like a dog with its tail between its legs is disappointing to say the least.

    ^which tells me, just how scary and intimidating the Scientology leaders are.

    Frightening.
