When Paul Haggis emerged from the darkness last year and denounced Scientology, he also warned that he fully expected a scandal to emerge or some kind of smear about him and that it would come from Scientology. Well, so far there has been nothing, but not for a lack of trying on the part of Scientology. The Academy Award winning director told The NY Post that every week, private detectives are digging through his trash and he has no doubts they were hired by Scientology to try and find something they can use against him. If you leave your trash out on your lawn or on your curb, anyone can go through it. It is public property at that point. The only thing taken from his trash each week are papers he has written on. The Church says the claims are ridiculous. Yeah, because there is some other group out there who really wants to sift through Paul Haggis' trash.
What the Scientologists should do is say, “yeah we are digging through his trash. He said some bad things about us and now we want to see if we can say some bad things about him.” At least be honest about it. I don't think people like to know their church is lying to them all the time. That is one of the reasons Haggis left.
