By: Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization

With that in mind, the Church of Scientology Information Center has taken a creative approach to combatting intolerance and distrust. As getting on a plane and visiting another country isn't always feasible, the Information Center is airing programs that allow viewers to "travel" through the lens of a camera and experience new countries, cultures, people, foods and customs through the exclusive series, Destination:
