Jun 21, 2007 Scientologists find home at former science museum in St. Paul — Finance and Commerce Daily (Minnesota)
Finance and Commerce Daily (Minnesota)
The building at 505 N. Wabasha St. in downtown St. Paul isn't your average piece of property. Most buildings don't come complete with a 300-seat theater – the former Omni Theater, a forerunner of today's IMAX theaters. When it opened in 1977, the building was the new home of the Science Museum of Minnesota. After the Science Museum moved to its new home along Kellogg Boulevard in 1999, the Minnesota Business Academy took up residence in the building. The academy closed ...

From Tom Cruise’s wedding to South Park’s scathing cartoon parody, the Church of Scientology has emerged as one of the wealthiest, most powerful but also most controversial new religious movements of the last fifty years. Remarkably, however, it has rarely been subjected to serious, critical study by historians of religions, in large part because of the ...

It is also hard to take seriously a university where the president, Jon Westling, lacks the basic teaching credential — a doctoral degree — required of assistant professors nationwide. It is not widely known that the man ...
