News: Destination: Scientology, Brussels – Religious Freedom in the Capital of Europe | CitizenWire

Destination: Scientology, Brussels

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /CitizenWire/ -- Scientology Network's DESTINATION: SCIENTOLOGY, the weekly travelogue series that takes viewers inside Scientology Churches all around the world and discovers what makes each one unique, presents an episode featuring Brussels, Belgium.

DESTINATION: SCIENTOLOGY airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.


Brussels is the home of the European Union, and therefore a 21st-century world power center. Beyond its role as de facto capital of Europe, the city is brimming with old-world charm, stunning Art Nouveau architecture and tempting chocolate and waffle shops on nearly every street corner.

Located on the city's famed Waterloo Boulevard, amid world-renowned monuments and shops, is the 88,000-square-foot Church of Scientology for the European Communities. This Destination: Scientology episode imparts to viewers the city's remarkable history and provides a glimpse of its modern-day attractions - from the Tomorrowland Festival to the biennial Flower Carpet Event, when the entire Grand-Place is covered with a breathtaking half-million flowers.

Viewers will also learn about Brussels' distinction as the center of the fight for religious freedom in Europe. In the 1990s, an anti-religious movement ignited across the continent, seeking to criminalize religious beliefs and ban certain faiths. The Church of Scientology fought a 20-year legal battle, ultimately prevailing and setting a powerful legal precedent in the fight against religious persecution throughout the European Union. In turn, today the Brussels Church is a hub of interfaith unity and a catalyst for peace.
