EVEN the strongest stomach at this summer's American Booksellers convention must have heaved in protest when comely goons hired by Bridge Publications, the publishing arm of the Church of Scientology, marched up and down the aisles of the auditorium literally setting ablaze a book by L. Ron Hubbard — a "hot" author, get it? — a man who is said to have improved the lives (If not the careers) of such celebrities as Sonny Bono and John Travolta. Judging from their ...

After years of sparring with the townsfolk and veiling itself in secrecy, the Church of Scientology has succeeded in turning Clearwater into its spiritual mecca. Scientologists quietly run teen nightclubs, schools, day-care centers, management consulting firms and other businesses, records and interviews show. Now the strategy of the organization, longtime observers say, is to confront controversy, gain converts and make money - lots of it. Scientology's Clearwater operation brings in $1.5-million to $2-million a week, say church watchers who include Clearwater ...

The year was 1976, one year after the Church of Scientology had secretly moved its spiritual headquarters to Clearwater, and Mayor Gabe Cazares was complaining too loudly for the church's comfort. So, as documents seized by the FBI would later show, the church's Clearwater office devised a scheme to "ruin Mayor Gabriel Cazares' political career by spreading scandal about his sex life." Church officials came up with ways to get Cazares' school records, birth records, anything — from checking with the ...

Eldridge Broussard Jr.'s face screwed into a grimace of such anger and pain that the unflappable Oprah Winfrey seemed unnerved. It hurts to be branded "the new Jimmy Jones" by a society eager to condemn what it doesn't understand, the founder of the Ecclesia Athletic Assn. lamented on TV just a few days after his 8-year-old daughter had been beaten to death, apparently by Ecclesia members. At issue were complex questions of whether the group he had formed to instill discipline ...

L. RON HUBBARD: Messiah or Madman? By Bent Corydon and L. Ron Hubbard Jr. (Lyle Stuart, $20.) The Church of Scientology is a bizarre cult, and its founder and leader, L. Ron Hubbard, was a cosmic outlaw, in the words of L. Ron Hubbard Jr. There is little of the son in this book but a good deal of Bent Corydon, who headed one of the Scientology missions in California during the 1970's until Hubbard decided to take over these lucrative ...

THE author of a book that allegedly blows the whistle on the bizarre founder of the Church of Scientology says he has been terrorized by cult fanatics seeking to suppress the shocking exposé. "They've sent out thugs to intimidate me, threatened my family, tried to bribe us and even tried to jail the publisher," says Bent Corydon, author of L. Ron Hubbard: Messiah Or Madman? (Lyle Stuart). Corydon, a loyal disciple of Hubbard and his cult for nearly 22 years, now ...

HIGH on summer reading lists, at least for members of the Church of Scientology, is Bent Corydon's "L. Ron Hubbard — Messiah or Madman?" This is the book L. Ron Hubbard Jr. was co-writing before the church reportedly paid him $250,000 to stop feeding information to Corydon. Corydon went ahead by himself, and Scientologists have been so anxious to get advance copies of his expose about the late church founder, says a spokeswoman for publishers Lyle Stuart Inc., that they were ...

Local religious spokesmen Saturday disputed statements by Scientologists that a $39 million court judgment against the Church of Scientology represented a threat to freedom of religion. "This is not a freedom of religion issue at all," the Rev. Rodney I. Page, executive director of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, said Saturday of the punitive damages awarded Julie Christofferson Titchbourne, who sued the Church of Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, for fraud. "This was a case in which someone's civil rights ...
