On August 19, 2009, Tommy Davis, the chief spokesperson for the Church of Scientology International, received a letter from the film director and screenwriter Paul Haggis. “For ten months now I have been writing to ask you to make a public statement denouncing the actions of the Church of Scientology of San Diego,” Haggis wrote. Before the 2008 elections, a staff member at Scientology’s San Diego church had signed its name to an online petition supporting Proposition 8, which asserted that ...

DESPITE bombarding the BBC with letters in the weeks before transmission of John Sweeney's recent Panorama Special on Scientology, the lawyers for the self-styled "church" — the inevitable Messrs Carter-Fuck — have been strangely silent since it was broadcast. Ditto Phil Hall, the former Screws editor who now earns an honest crust as the Scientologists' PR man. The cult's followers, however, have been tirelessly hyperactive as ever. Zabrina Collins, an "ethics officer", emailed fellow Scientologists urging them to join a "counter ...

"YOU suck cock on Hollywood Boulevard." This is the word of the Church of Scientology, according to its former spokesman Mike Rinder, spilling the beans in John Sweeney’s BBC film this week. He was citing a text message from the office of the leader, David Miscavige, best man at Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes. It was one of many bizarre obscenities quoted by Rinder who, after half a century inside the church, now says that it is a cult. ‘It ...

Author(s): Anderson Cooper, Ismael Estrada

If you believe Marty Rathbun, people in the top ranks of the Church of Scientology have used physical intimidation and outright beatings as a means of discipline. Scientology's current leaders, including Rathbun's ex-wife, call him a liar and an "apostate." They say the only beatings were those inflicted by Rathbun and a small number of others, all of whom have left Scientology. But both sides appear to agree that periodic beatings occurred among the highest echelons of the church for some ...

The Scientologists promptly issued a press release declaring they had responded to Xenophon “in Parliament”, as if they had some sort of elected status.

Marty Rathbun, who until 2004 was the church's second-most powerful man, answering only to the present leader, David Miscavige, said the church leadership was obsessed with destroying dissent and increasing ...
