And people are going to say "Nice try, Scientologists!"
Dude, so someone on Reddit had some fun with the idea that, much like the school the Smiths founded seems to have been partly inspired by Scientology, so might there have been some Scientology-related personal interest behind their choosing that story. Okay, so there are no explicit connections to be made. That doesn't make a hysterical McCarthyite out of everyone who read the thread (or, more likely, the numerous articles based on it) and thought it good for a laugh. Relax!
