Scientology Video Channel Launched on YouTube and www.Scientology.org

The Church of Scientology has launched a new video channel simultaneously on YouTube (www.youtube.com/user/ChurchofScientology) and its own official website (www.Scientology.org).

The Scientology Video Channel provides an overview of the basic beliefs and practices of the religion, as well as information on the many humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church – programs addressing drug abuse, illiteracy, human rights and disaster relief.

The video channel contains 82 broadcast-quality videos, comprising almost 3 hours of content. These videos have previously been available for viewing by the general public in Church exhibitions around the world.

By making the Scientology Video Channel available on both the Church’s website and on a YouTube channel specifically devoted to content about Scientology, the Church is able to provide far more expansive and enlightening information to those who have questions about the religion.  Visitors to the Scientology Video Channel can request a free book entitled “A Description of the Scientology Religion” or obtain other basic books about Scientology or Dianetics.

As Scientologists number in the millions and come from all walks of life, included in the online content are statements from Scientology parishioners themselves expressing why Scientology is their chosen faith.

The Church of Scientology has always considered the Internet a resource for disseminating accurate information about the religion – concentrating on using the Internet to promote its message and mission in the world. Since 1996, Church sites have provided hundreds of thousands of individual pages of material and images on the religion.  These sites are available in most major languages and are visited by tens of millions each year.

The Church firmly believes that understanding is achieved through knowledge and information.  It is in this spirit that the Church is putting these special video channels online designed to answer the question most often asked: What is Scientology?

The Church of Scientology encourages anyone desiring information about the Scientology religion to visit the Church video channel at www.Scientology.org, or the Official Scientology YouTube video viewing channel at www.YouTube.com/user/ChurchofScientology.
