Ok here is the plan:
We call up the Scientologists and say we are interested in their program and could they send somebody over to talk to me. We make the same call to the Baptists, Jehovas Witnesses, and the Mormons. Then when they get here they discover that we have constructed a cage of chain link fence. So we inform them all that they will be competing in a CAGED DEATH MATCH FOR MY SOUL. Then we film it and put it up on YouTube.

A few years ago there was this girl (early 20's) who worked for me. She was a scientologist. I had several conversations with her regarding her faith, unfortunately I forget most of what she told me, but I do remember one thing she said.
This was about the whole spirit breaking thing. She said what they did was make you sit in a chair and across from you was a teacher or whatever they were called, who also sat in a chair so close their knees would be touching.
The teacher would proceed to cast insults at you of every kind. This would go on with an ever increasing angry tone and added vulgarity and cussing. The teacher would be leaning forward mere inches from your face screaming at you. The ultimate goal for the person being screamed at was to take as much as possible without flinching or saying a word back.
This was to build "tough skin" so to speak, so that you would be prepared to handle anything thrown at you and to never lose your cool.
Having said that, I could see something like this being a draw for the famous who are constantly berated by media etc.
But really not my cup o tea............. to each his own

If those scientology freaks stepped up to me like that in the street, their very next move would be in a hospital bed or dental chair... and I would enjoy every minute of it. Bring em on!
I'm gonna get a permit and close down your city center for a religous conference dedicated to the Bubble Gum Fairy!!!!! Than maybe you'd see how ludacris closing off anything for this type of an event is.
