Lawsuit coming, despite Sandy Springs' OK of Scientology church — Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Type: Press
Author(s): April Hunt
Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Scientology is coming to Sandy Springs – but a federal lawsuit is coming first. “Absolutely,” said attorney William Woodson Galloway, when asked if the Church of Scientology will pursue a religious liberty lawsuit following a vote Tuesday that limited the size of the church in Sandy Springs. “We are not happy with the result.” The result was a 3-3 vote by the City Council on Tuesday night that tried to find a common ground between outright denial of the rezoning of ...

Scientology vote Tuesday in Sandy Springs — Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Type: Press
Author(s): April Hunt
Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The showdown over Scientology in Sandy Springs comes up for a vote Tuesday night that both opponents and supporters hope puts an end to the matter. It isn’t likely. The threat of a religious-liberty lawsuit looms if the City Council rejects outright the Church of Scientology’s request for a zoning change so it can move from its current state headquarters in Dunwoody into a Sandy Springs office building it owns. On the other side are the more than 700 residents – ...

LEGAL action is threatened by the family of Sir Winston Churchill in a bid to stop Scientologists using the famous wartime leader's picture and words in their recruitment drive. Town MP Nicholas Soames told the Courier and Observer: "Organisation like the BNP and the Scientologists have no right whatsoever to use my grandfather as a means to solicit and elicit support. "I have written to them asking them to desist from using his image immediately. Unless I get a satisfactory reply, ...

Sandy Springs sidesteps Scientology decision — Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Author(s): April Hunt
Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The waiting continues on whether the Church of Scientology will move to Sandy Springs. The City Council on Tuesday deferred voting on a rezoning request by the church until December, despite a packed house of several dozen opponents wearing “STOP” stickers on their lapels and several dozen supporters on hand with a court reporter, taking down all comments. Council members said the latest delay on the issue, which has been bubbling up since last spring, was required so the Planning Commission ...

Clearwater Sun alum says city desk clerk was a spy for Scientology — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)

All acknowledgement to Poynter's Jim Romenesko, whose blog [http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=45] alerted me to the Reporter's Notebook Web site [http://www.reportersnotebook.net/article.php3?id_article=57], which contains a compelling collection of memories by alums of the long gone Clearwater Sun newspaper. While I'm not so sure about the contention that a newspaper 25 miles away can't provide comprehensive coverage of a community, it is illuminating and sobering to read about the Sun's glory days. A particular standout is the essay crafted by Mike Pride [http://nenews.org/stories/639.html], a well-regarded, recently-retired ...

Watchdog web site draws legal threats from Scientologists, Mormons — FOX News
Type: Press
Author(s): Michael Park
Source: FOX News
Wikileaks.org — a watchdog Web site that leaks corporate and government documents — hasn't officially launched, yet it has already uncovered human-rights violations in China, claimed to have swayed Kenya's Dec. 2007 elections and exposed the inner workings of the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay. So many were surprised when it recently turned its sights on two lawyer-heavy religious groups: the Mormons and the Scientologists. Founded in December 2006, Wikileaks boasts of an archive of 1.2 million released documents, sent ...

Anons Go Unmasked at Latest Scientology Protest — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Candice M. Giove
Source: Village Voice
At Saturday’s “Operation: Fair Game: Stop,” Anonymous’ latest installment in a series of monthly global protests, one local member abandoned his ridiculous three-pronged disguise of glasses, a fake nose and a mustache. Instead Mike Vitale wore his name in white letters emblazoned across a black cotton T-shirt. For Vitale, it’s no longer necessary to obscure his face with the cheap gag getup. The Church of Scientology already knows who he is and where he lives. Days before the protest focusing on ...

[Picture / Caption: That's Mike Vitale. Guess the costume didn't work too well.] When Queens resident Mike Vitale was outed as a member of Anonymous by the Church of Scientology last month, he specifically asked Church members if they planned to prove his criticisms correct by declaring him “fair game” and subjecting him to the threats and intimidation that are said to be inherent in that Church policy. Would they threaten him or show up at his house? Well, they did—or, ...

The Church of Scientology has acknowledged that Wikileaks is offering the world quick and easy access to the church's top-secret "bibles". Or should that be formerly top-secret? On March 24, the swashbuckling truth-seekers at Wikileaks.org published what they referred to as "the collected secret 'bibles' of Scientology," and three days later, church-friendly lawyers threatened the site with legal action if the documents weren't taken down. Calling them "Advanced Technology of the Scientology religion," the lawyers pointed out that the documents are ...

A New Zealand website spoofing Hollywood actor Tom Cruise and his religion of choice is facing legal action from the Church of Scientology. The church is not amused by scienTOMogy - which features spoof videos of the star - and says it is breaching copyright. When Cruise engaged in some sofa stomping, he coined a new phrase called jumping the couch - the defining moment when someone has gone of the deep end. From that moment Glen Stollery has been chronicling ...
