CLEARWATER, Fla., April 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Saturday April 1st, two members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Civil Rights Coordinator Aida Mackic, and Executive Director, Hassan Shibly, toured the Church of Scientology's Flag Building, the church's cathedral for Scientologists who come from all over the United States and around the world for Scientology services. Located in downtown Clearwater, the Flag Building was opened in 2013 as part of the Church of Scientology's Clearwater campus to some 50 buildings.
Cristian Vargas, Executive of the Florida Office of United for Human Rights, which opened new headquarters in downtown Clearwater in July 2015, toured the two Islamic representatives.
Cristian said, "It was Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Scientology faith who said, Human Rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream. By working with religious leaders, like those from CAIR, we can achieve human rights for all religions and all peoples."
