It's Scientology. US lawmakers praise Church of Scientology | The Daily Caller Lawmakers in attendance were Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Indiana Republican Rep. Dan Burton and Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis. Liz Gibson, Senior Program Manager at the Federal Emergency Management Agency was also in attendance. Jackson Lee applauded the organization. I want to thank L. Ron Hubbard for recognizing that courage is not rewarded but it is valued, said the congresswoman. L. Ron Hubbard was the churchs founder. And to be able to have the wonderment of people coming together and ensuring that people come together for peace. Thats what I see in the Church, that you have come together for peace. I welcome and support that, she said.
