The film would star a former science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard who founded a religion — or what his critics call a "cult." Also included in the cast would be Charles Manson, John Travolta, numerous former cultists turned "deprogrammers," and billions of Thetans, or immortal beings trapped in "meat bodies" on the planet earth — and don't forget Hubbard's renegade son, who works in a Nevada casino and suspects his father is either dead or hopelessly insane.

CARSON CITY, Nev. — The former L. Ron Hubbard Jr. shed his father's name in a simple legal maneuver. Shedding the effects of his powerful church is another matter. Left behind are bitter hatreds, fears for his safety only half-jokingly laughed off, charges of money-grubbing and wrongdoing and deep emotional scars. The Church of Scientology counters that the wayward son is merely fantasizing. Ron DeWolf, 47, first born offspring of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, the brilliant and controversial force behind the fabulously ...

The 16 witnesses who testified in Clearwater's public hearings on Church of Scientology activities provided the first-hand information city officials will use if they decide to design ordinances to regulate the sect. Boston attorney Michael Flynn, who gathered the witnesses, said he questioned them extensively about their Scientology experiences and people they knew in the sect. He confirmed that information through other witnesses and contacts inside the church, he said. If they had not been in the sect, Flynn said, "I'd ...

Calling Clearwater's public hearings on the Church of Scientology a "Roman Circus," the sect's lawyer walked out on the proceedings Monday. "The Church of Scientology has been embarrassed and scandalized," said Tampa attorney Paul B. Johnson before leaving. In a brief presentation as Monday's session began, Johnson chastised city commissioners for what he said was their lack of objectivity. He also questioned the selection of Boston attorney Michael Flynn as the city's consultant and the credibility of "handpicked" witnesses Flynn provided. ...

This week's public hearings on the Church of Scientology is just a case of sect founder L. Ron Hubbard getting a dose of his own medicine, according to one interested spectator. "This is an auditing session," said George Kelly, who has attended all three days of the hearings. "This is L. Ron Hubbard's auditing session and Michael Flynn is the auditor." Kelly, a 34-year-old Canadian and ex-Scientologist, based his analysis on his 14-year study of the Church of Scientology and his ...

CLEARWATER — Life at the Church of Scientology's Fort Harrison Hotel was so miserable, Lori Taverna remembered Thursday, that "I felt that I was in . . . an insane asylum." Casey Kelly recalled being distressed by the hard work and low pay. "Here I was, working 70 to 80 hours a week, and I was making $20," Kelly said. "This did not jive." Eventually both Kelly, 23, and Ms. Taverna, 39, quit Scientology. Thursday they testified before Clearwater city commissioners ...

CLEARWATER — L. Ron Hubbard Jr., now known as Ron DeWolf, and Paulette Cooper agree on at least two things. Each says Scientology is a fraud. Each says the other is untrustworthy and out to make a buck from criticizing Scientology. "He's such a liar," Ms. Cooper said of DeWolf. Later she referred to DeWolf's father, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and added, "He's a chip off the old block." DeWolf said he holds a similar view of Ms. Cooper. HE ...
