Letter: Scientology explained — Metro Times (Detroit, Michigan)

Type: Press
Source: Metro Times (Detroit, Michigan)
The article that appeared in the Metro Times Sept. 21-27 issue is a perfect example of how the media believe they need "controversy" in order to thrive. A group of people practicing their religion, thriving and learning isn't controvetsial enough, so things get added which are intended to stop any new idea from growing. Scientology is a people's activity, a grass-roots movement, and is taken up and used by individuals who then apply it to their lives. The understanding that ...

Religious freedom? — Mountain Views (Australia)
Type: Press
Source: Mountain Views (Australia)
It is now well understood and accepted that freedom of speech does not include the freedom to malign others, because hate propaganda and vicious smears in public have a destructive effect on excitable individuals (witness the effect Nazi propaganda had on the Germans in the 1930s and 40s). The recent publication of a book written by Louise Samways entitled 'Dangerous Persuaders: An expose of gurus, personal development courses and cults, and how they operate in Australia' and the ensuing publicity for ...

YOUR story Ex-Scientologists to 'Expose' Cult (March 4) completely missed the point. What your readers were not told is that the two Scientology "ex-members" in question have been involved in removing materials from church premises and using these for their own ends. The true story is this. Robin Scott and Ron Lawley engaged in a criminal conspiracy in 1983. In furtherance of' that conspiracy, Scott and others went to Denmark, entered a church using a subterfuge, and stole sacred religious scriptures. ...

CULTS: Article ignored other side of the story from the Reverend Mary Anderson, director of public affairs, Church of Scientology I write to express my amazement and concern that 'The Sunday Age' (3/10) published an article on Louise Samways and her book 'Dangerous Persuaders' without presenting the other side of the story. Scientology is an applied religious philosophy which contains solutions to the problems of living. Its end result is increased awareness and freedom for the individual and rehabilitation of his ...

Editor: In order to build a better future it often is necessary to let go of the past. I am referring to the Nov. 17 letter on Scientology by Gabe Cazares, which sounded much like a record stuck in the nine groove for far too long. Mr. Cazares may disagree with the IRS' exemption riling on the Church of Scientology, however, that decision followed the most thorough and demanding investigation ever conducted of any exempt organization. The result: The IRS granted ...

Editor: The much publicized IRS rulings do not bestow credibility or legitimacy to Scientology. The IRS rulings cannot rewrite history or wipe the slate clean for this most destructive cult. Never forget that this cult committed what is, in my opinion, the greatest conspiracy against the government — crimes for which its top leadership went to jail. Never forget that this cult occupied Clearwater with secret military-style orders. And never forget the cult's infamous "fair game" policy, which says anyone declared ...

THANK YOU, thank you, thank you for having the courage to print your Scientology story ["Catch a Rising Star," September].

It is appalling to see the intense scrutiny and negative examination of the Church of Scientology by reporters who assume expertise in the subject. Obviously, the subject is sensational: "Church of Scientology declared a bona fide religion by IRS!" But to stir it all up again, to continue to try to get the fire going again, is not only insulting to Scientologists, but I would say to all religions. Has it been forgotten that the right to religious worship is one ...

Author(s): Fred Thomas
To Mr. Mark DeEulio, Tampa, Florida Obviously, there was a concerted effort on the part of Scientology and Richard Haworth to flood my fax machine with requests on an upcoming legal issue. Also it appears that Dr. David Singer, a local chiropractor and Scientologist, used his offices to process the vast majority of this mail. It appears you were not acting as individuals expressing your own personal concerns, but you were expressing the concerns of a manufactured perspective. With regard to ...

CLEARWATER — City commissioners decided Tuesday how they'll handle an ordinance opposed by the Church of Scientology but won't say what their decision was. Mayor Rita Garvey said attorneys working on behalf of the city have filed an appeal to a federal appellate court ruling that declared parts of the ordinance unconstitutional, but she did not elaborate. All five city commissioners offered "no comments" about the substance of their secret meeting and referred questions to attorney Alan Zimmet, who did not ...

Re: IRS Scientology is tax-exempt religion, Oct. 13. The Internal Revenue Service's reversal of the income tax status of the Church of Scientology was both stunning and perplexing. What is the story behind the story? Was some kind of compromise arrived at? A deal? Unanswered questions abound. Taxing personal income, for many Americans, has created a strong moral distaste and sense of injustice, unlike what is felt for other forms of taxation. These Americans have seen, over the years, the ...

After we ran a 250-word article about the introduction of the Church of Scientology into Russia ("L.

Pinning our hopes on Old Doll Body I READ with interest Denise Harrison's statement of incredulity that a new religion could be the work of a science fiction writer. According to the saying, truth is stranger than fiction, so what about this one? In his early lectures, Ron Hubbard mentioned "Old Doll Body", a mythical figure from the past, who travelled freely in the universe in his flying saucer. In 1964, I was driving up the Turners Hill Road one night ...

After dabbling...

Four of us had. Our knowledge of Scientology is not confined to anti-Scientology literature, as Barbara Bradley seems to imply. Speaking for myself, I visited Saint Hill in September 1985. I have dipped into dianetics, which I admit did not interest me ...

Why Christians oppose Scientology... IT SEEMS to me that those who defend Scientology fall into two categories: first of all, there are the Scientologists themselves, who will naturally present the acceptable face of Scientology; and then there are others, who through your columns have pleaded for tolerance and understanding. Taking the second of these, I would point out that Christians, in their condemnation of Scientology, do not hate Scientologists. We hate the evil which the cult enshrines rather than those who ...

Sir, – In your issue of November 26, Brian Warren gives rein to Mr Atack's fantasy in an article about the Church of Scientology. The publication is a gross distortion of the truth deliberately designed to whip up antagonism against the Church. Why is Atack attacking a religious group which has freed over 100,000 people from the ravages of drugs and which puts more people on the road to total freedom than all other groups combined? Mr Atack fails to mention ...

Your article April 14 regarding the Church of Scientology boarding school gave a slightly false picture. The Church has owned the property on Bouquet Canyon Road, which is at least six miles southeast of Green Valley, for almost two years. Church representatives approached the Green Valley Town Council about 10 times since August of 1991 to present the plans for the school as a matter of courtesy to the community. However . . . we are not located in Green ...
