The Church of Scientology puts out regular press releases entitled "Meet a Scientologist," each of which interviews a different, average-Joe Scientologist (as opposed to the celebrity Scientologists with whom most of us are more familiar).
This week's Scientologist is Kirk Youngman, a dentist. The series hopes to show that Scientologists are normal, everyday people looking to better themselves and those around them. As a dentist, Youngman is obviously highly educated, helping to dismiss the notion that Scientologists are simply dupes easily parted from their money.
Regardless of others' opinions, Scientology is clearly important in the lives of these people. They see it as a positive force, and isn't that what most of us are looking for?
