The mills of Xenu grind exceeding slow — The Inquirer
Type: Press
Author(s): Wendy M. Grossman
Source: The Inquirer
IT WAS WITH some astonishment that I read this week that a Dutch court ruled on September 4 that writer Karin Spaink could keep the Scientology materials on her Web site. The original case, in which this is the third ruling, began in the Pleistocene era in Internet terms — nine years ago. I had no idea it was still doing the Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce thing. I spent much of 1994 — when the Web was Usenet, the king was CompuServe, ...

Scientology: Are we Clear on this? // The Wittenburg Door Interview with Tory Bezazian — The Wittenburg Door
Type: Press
Author(s): Bob Gersztyn
Source: The Wittenburg Door
We don't have to tell YOU about L.Ron Hubbard, his book Dianetics, and the religion it spawned—Scientology. In fact, until just recently, most media outlets WOULDN'T tell you about it given Scientology's well-deserved reputation for litigation. Instead, let us tell you about Tory Bezazian. In 1969 Tory hitchhiked from Chicago to L.A. to become a disciple of Dianetics. She invested untold tens of thousands of hours and dollars in it (the annual price tag for a membership in the International Association ...

Sympathy for the Devil — New Times Los Angeles
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega

Tory Bezazian was a veteran Scientologist who loved going after church critics. Until she met the darkest detractor of all. Last year, Church of Scientology operatives received an alarming tip: During the upcoming 2000 MTV Movie Awards scheduled for June 8, a short South Park film parodying Battlefield Earth would feature the character Cartman wiping his ass with a copy of L. Ron Hubbard's sacred text, Dianetics. The tip was erroneous. Cartman would actually be wiping his ass with a Scientology ...

It was 2:15 p.m. when Keith Henson and his friend Gregg Hagglund finished picking up contact-lens solution and shaving lotion at a suburban Toronto mall and climbed into their car. Before they could fasten their seat belts, two unmarked vans squealed up, pinning their Mazda economy sedan in from the rear and the passenger side. A handful of emergency-services task-force officers – Canada‘s version of a police SWAT team – spilled out, wearing body armor and carrying submachine guns. As shoppers ...

'Destroy him utterly' — Hour Magazine (Canada)
Type: Press
Author(s): M-J Milloy

Keith Henson, American activist on the run in Canada, thinks the controversial Church of Scientology has made him fair game for dirty tricks Looking back, maybe the joke about the "Tom Cruise Missile" wasn't such a good idea. That online jest, made last year by Keith Henson, a peaceful if persistent critic of the controversial Church of Scientology, has led to his being found guilty of "intimidating a religion," and now on the run from the U.S., hiding out in plain ...

On the run from L. Ron Hubbard — Salon
Type: Press
Author(s): Damien Cave
Source: Salon
Keith Henson, Scientology gadfly turned fugitive from justice, explains his reasons for fleeing the United States. Keith Henson is waging a one-man crusade against Scientology. Arguing that the church threatens to undermine the First Amendment by suing opponents into submission, he has fought the house that L. Ron Hubbard built at every turn. Since 1995, when the church first angered Net users by trying to close down a newsgroup dedicated to discussing Scientology's practices, he has posted documents that the church ...

Online Scientology critic seeks political asylum // Usenet as a 'weapon of terror' — The Register (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): Thomas C. Greene
Source: The Register (UK)
A couple of weeks ago computer engineer Keith Henson was found guilty in California of a criminal act related to posts he made in the newsgroup alt.religion.scientology, which contained obviously comical (all right, Sophomoric) references to targeting Scientologists with a nuclear missile. The jury convicted him of interfering with a religion — likely due to his habit of picketing near the cult's properties — but failed to reach a decision on two other patently idiotic charges brought by Deputy District Attorney ...

WASHINGTON – A California jury has convicted Keith Henson, a prominent critic of Scientology, of terrorizing the group through Usenet posts and by picketing one of its offices.

The charges revolved around posts Henson made in the alt.religion.scientology ...

Author(s): Declan McCullagh

The geek-culture destination Slashdot.org said on Friday that it deleted a post in response to legal threats from the Church of Scientology. Scientology's notoriously litigious team of attack attorneys successfully pressured the site's editors into erasing a discussion board message, which allegedly contained copyrighted material. "While Slashdot is an open forum and we encourage free discussion and sharing of ideas, our lawyers have advised us that, considering all the details of this case, the comment should come down," co-founder Rob "CmdrTaco" ...

Nick Ryan on the holy wars fought in cyberspace between religious movements and their critics Religion in the UK: special report August 12 1995 was a Saturday much like any other in the urban sprawl of Arlington, Virginia. Except that an alert went out over email and on Usenet groups to say that 10 people - including two federal marshals, two computer technicians, one a former FBI agent, and several attorneys - were raiding the home of former Scientologist Arnaldo Lerma. ...
