How profitable Scientology has become is one of the organization's most closely guarded secrets, but estimates of the personal worth of founder L. Ron Hubbard have ranged up to $7 million. In 1963 the Internal Revenue Service claimed the church earned more than $750,000 in the United States from 1955 through 1959, the year Hubbard moved international headquarters from Washington, D.C., to England. There, according to the Los Angeles Times, world receipts rose to $140,000 weekly in 1968. —– In New ...

CT Classic: Scientology: Religion or Racket? — Christianity Today

Author(s): Joseph Martin Hopkins

Offices of the American Psychiatric Association are located in the seventeen hundred block of Eighteenth Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. The Founding Church of Scientology is at 1812 Nineteenth Street, one block farther out. Figuratively speaking, the world's largest mental-health organization is considerably farther out than that.Even its members will concede that it is far out. After a hurried interview with Miss Anne Ursprung, top executive of the Founding Church, I managed an extension of time by driving her and fellow staff ...

Robert Bobo talks with two children who are taking Scientology courses. The photo on the wall is of the founder of the worldwide group, L.

When ministers of the Founding Church of Scientology told a Falls Church, Virginia couple that could teach the couple's defective son to talk and raise his IQ at same time, the man and wife, understandably in search of a miracle, willingly paid—in advance—the sum of $3,000 as a "contribution for spiritual guidance." The husband cashed a life insurance policy, sold some bonds, added the proceeds of a small bequest and "scraped around in various places." And then his son Paul's "processing" ...

Scientologists lose tax-exempt status — AMA News

Type: Press
Source: AMA News
The Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, D.C. (The AMA News, Sept. 2, 1968 ) has lost its tax-exempt status because a federal court says its activities were too commercial. Donald E. Lane, trial commissioner of the U.S. Court of Claims in Washington, ruled that the church received substantial income from its "processing and auditing" services, and that the value of these services was over and above the organization's religious and spiritual aspects. Government officials have indicated the decision would signal ...

Type: Press

Americans traveling to Great Britain to practice "Scientology," a group which claims to be "applied religious philosophy," have been barred by the British Ministry of Health. Kenneth Robinson, minister of health, declared that "scientology is socially harmful." The government's action was taken on the basis of complaints—some of them raised in Parliament — about teachings of the group. Followers of the group previously known as Dianetics and now calling itself the Church of Scientology, reportedly adhere to the ideas originated by ...

A U.S. District Court judge in Washington, D.C., has ordered the destruction of a collection of electric devices seized by the federal government from the Founding Church of Scientology. A jury ruled earlier that more than 100 "Hubbard E Meters" were misbranded because of labeling claims that they were effective for diagnosis, prevention, detection and elimination of the causes of all mental and nervous disorders (The AMA News, May 15, 1967). Federal attorneys said the only demonstrated effect of the machines ...

Public will pay high price for its apathy — if even government agencies become electronic snoops. MOST AMERICANS take religious freedom for granted. Some may be vaguely aware that it is guaranteed by the first amendment to the Constitution because some of the very early settlers on this continent came in search of just this freedom, but their general attitude is one of indifference. Unfortunately their lofty assumption that churches never are harassed in this country is incorrect. Even more unfortunately, ...
