Scientology's political presence on the rise

By Kirsten Stewart

The Salt Lake Tribune

What does Tom Cruise have to do with the anti-Ritalin bill passed by Utah's Legislature last year? Nothing really, except both embody the teachings of Scientology and neither is going away anytime soon.

Lucas says Cruise's public display represents growing awareness about the "national crisis" of children and adults being prescribed mind-altering drugs.

"I don't have the power or staff or resources that the psychiatrists have. The only thing I have going for me is I tell the truth and I'm relentless. Without integrity, I'm lost," said Lucas.
