I watched this on the news the other day. I was getting a bit annoyed with Lisa Marie because even though much of what she said made sense, she kept hmmmwell kind of zoning in and out as though she was either very tired and sleepy or high. Apparently she and Georges brother have been very busy and staying as close as possible to Washington and that $30.000.000.00 fund set aside for various religions with-in the U.S.
Personally I think all this is pretty creepy.
Elvis hated scientologists and wanted nothing to do with them.
In a strange twist it seems that Scientology eventually got both the Presley name and at least some of Elvis' money, well that is posthumously.
And what would Elvis say if he could see what is happening now? One old friend quoted within the book "Elvis Aaron Presley: Revelations From the Memphis Mafia" says that he would "shit a brick."

Neil Bush and Lisa Marie Presley work Capital Hill for Scientology
Presley is the designated celebrity talking head for the "Citizens' Commission on Human Rights" (CCHR) founded by Scientology .
Presley and Bush appeared before the House Committee on Government Reform to rap the use of Ritalin and other drugs used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Presley also took time to interview with People Weekly to promote this effort.
United Press International reported critically about the President's brother's appearance with Scientologists. Long-time Bush family friend Rev. Moon, founder of the Unification Church , controls UPI. Perhaps the two "cults" are mutually exclusive to the point of a bit of jealousy.
During the hearings Rep. Constance Morella (R-MD) pointedly exposed the CCHR as little more than a Scientology effort to discredit psychiatry, their perceived nemesis, reports ABC News . Morella quoted the CCHR's international president, who described psychiatry as a "malignant disease" that "threatens society and ultimately mankind."
L. Ron Hubbard the founder of Scientology taught his disciples that mental health professionals are virtually Satanic. Perhaps this was because of Hubbard's struggle with his own demons. He once requested psychiatric help and was apparently given to both fits of hysterical rage and seemingly pathological lying .
Whatever the personal reasons were, which may have motivated Hubbard's vitriolic attacks against the mental health profession, one thing seems certain. Since Scientology sells itself as the best way to cure or "clear" the mind, psychiatry, psychiatrists and psychiatric drugs represent a competing alternative to their business. And what better way to shoot down the competition than stage an attack before Congress?[Posted by Rick Ross at 9:06 AM] [Link]
