Carl Barney Versus Objectivity
by William Swig
“I seek the answer to one question: Did Scientology benefit Carl Barney? Skeptical of his claim, I want to find authentic documentation of that period in his life. But I will not make public personal details that I believe to be unnecessary in arguing my case. ...
“I started the investigation by casually typing names and words into search engines and following clues online. ... eventually I found something very interesting at the end of that tunnel: the file number for an old divorce case.
“More serious now, I put the computer away and visited a county records building, where I reacquainted myself with microfiche film. From the contents of the file I learned many things about Barney’s hidden history within Scientology.”
