of Bob Minton's Comments
the city of Clearwater wants to get serious about
redevelopment, the first part of any redevelopment
plans for downtown Clearwater involves transforming
Scientology from a mafia-like totalitarian political
movement into something resembling a church.
people of Clearwater made it clear on 7/11 that
they do not intend to pay for a Scientology playground
in downtown Clearwater. When Clearwater residents
were polled by the SPT a couple of weeks before
the referendum, people said they would still not
come downtown any more than presently after the
development. Ask yourself WHY? Contrary to Mr. Roberto's
stated feeling Scientology is the WHY!!!
Lisa McPherson Trust, which is a Scientology watchdog
group located in downtown Clearwater has a blueprint
for the first step in redeveloping downtown Clearwater
which is a 10 point plan for reforming Scientology
into a beneficial citizen of Clearwater. Read our
plans, it's on the Lisa McPherson Trust website
at lisatrust.freewinds.cx or write to us or stop by our
office at 33 N. Ft. Harrison and help us fight for
Scientology reforms. Ask Mr. Roberto to give you
a copy of our plan that we gave to him in February.
are many things right about Clearwater but Scientology
is not one of them. If you Mr. Mayor and the City
Commissioners want to take a very positive step
for redevelopment and for the future of Clearwater
you will first fix what is wrong about Clearwater,
Scientology. You held 60 meetings all over Clearwater
about a redevelopment plan that was wrong for Clearwater.
I urge you to hold 6 meetings in Clearwater about
what is wrong with Scientology. You may learn something
about Clearwater's biggest problem.
another matter, I hope Mr. Keller will be following
Mr. Roberto out of town because I think there is
no place in Clearwater city government for a bigot.
On July 5th, Mr. Keller called Mark Bunker, a Clearwater
resident employed by the Lisa McPherson Trust in
Clearwater a bigot because Mr. Bunker wanted to
ask a question about Scientology's impact on the
St. Petersburg Times' poll I referred to earlier.
Mr. Keller need to crawl out of Scientology's bed
and re-learn the meaning of bigotry before he shoots
off his mouth in public again calling anyone in
the Lisa McPherson Trust a bigot. The City of Clearwater
owes Mr. Bunker an apology for Mr. Keller's tasteless
and despicable behavior.
