In the pantheon of D.C. area weird religious places to go and gawk, you’ve got the George Washington Masonic Memorial, the Oz-like LDS Washington D.C. Temple Visitors’ Center and now L.

The church will soon command a higher profile in Harlem.

Scientology has started a new propaganda offensive in Europe, opening new offices in capitals across the continent.
