Isaac Hayes was no expert Scientologist — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
As Rob Harvilla, the Voice music editor, pointed out to us yesterday, there was one really awful detail in the news this weekend about the death of the legendary Isaac Hayes - that the 65-year-old singer was found next to a treadmill which was still running. Chilling. Naturally, there's been some speculation in the press about Hayes and his religion, the wacky cabal of L. Ron Hubbard worshippers at Scientology. Hayes was one of Scientology's high-profile celebrity members, which (supposedly) led ...

Scientology's crushing defeat [What Scientology paid $8 Million to hide] — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
Six years ago, when I was a reporter at New Times LA, ''I’d written several stories about Scientology (Los Angeles is one of its headquarters), and I was about to uncork the longest one yet—a 7,000 word piece about an embarrassing, $8 million defeat Scientology had just suffered, when the weekly paper suddenly folded. That unpublished story has been sitting in storage ever since. Fast forward to 2008, and the world of reporting on Scientology has changed radically, thanks in part ...

Jason Beghe turned away at NY Scientology building — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
Jason Beghe tried to get inside the Scientology building on E. 46th Street yesterday, but was turned away by three beefy security men who told him it was their job to keep him out. The confrontation happened while a contingent of about 50 protesters from the anti-Scientology “Anonymous” movement cheered on Beghe from across the street. Members of Scientology itself didn’t make an appearance during the late afternoon protest. Beghe, who had tipped off the Anonymous activists that he’d be making ...

Scientology Reacts to the Voice — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
If you watched Tommy Davis on CNN last week, you know that Scientology isn’t very adept at public relations. I was reminded of that now that I’ve been reminiscing about what it was like to write about Hubbardites back in the day, and writing numerous stories about Jason Beghe. Yesterday I heard from Los Angeles-based Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw, my old friend, who noticed that I’m back on the Scientology beat. Pouw and I go back a long way. When I ...

Jason Beghe to Scientology mouthpiece Tommy Davis: 'You're losing your soul' — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
Scientology defector Jason Beghe on Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis: "You see the eyes, the lying that he's doing. Anybody can see that this guy is not clean. It's clear as day." Last week, John Roberts of CNN grilled Tommy Davis, a Scientology spokesman, who was predictably evasive about what L. Ron Hubbard's wacky minions are up to. 'Disconnection,' the church policy of splitting up families in order to shun critics of the church? Never happens, Davis claimed. And as for that ...

Scientology Spokesman Gives Non-Answers on CNN — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
CNN’s John Roberts this morning, trying to get a typically squirrelly Scientology spokesman, Tommy Davis, to answer some basic questions about L. Ron Hubbard’s outfit... Roberts: “There are some people, and one of them is a correspondent for the Village Voice, who says the basic tenet of the Church of Scientology is to rid the body of space-alien parasites, to clear oneself.” Davis: “Well, John, does that sound silly to you? I mean it’s unrecognizable to me.” The shout-out from CNN ...

Former Scientologist Actor Wants His Confessional Files Back — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
Two weeks ago, in a YouTube video and an interview in the Voice, Jason Beghe denounced Scientology as a "rip-off" that "brainwashed" its members. A veteran actor of films and TV, Beghe recently left Scientology after 12 years in the controversial church, during which he estimates he spent a million dollars on classes and training in Scientology’s arcane practices. Beghe went public with his newest offensive against the church last night by posting online a letter addressed to Scientology leader David ...

Nightline Swings at Scientology, Misses — Village Voice
Type: Blog
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
What do you expect when a program as mainstream as Nightline tries to take on a moving story like the new, growing opposition to Scientology? Certainly not something this weak. Stumbling in the footsteps of a recent terrific story by John Cook at Radar, Nightline tried to tell the story of Jenna Miscavige Hill last night. Why is her story important? She’s niece to the tiny leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, so her defection, and subsequent allegations about how her family ...

Veteran television actor Jason Beghe tells the Village Voice that the Church of Scientology will be feeling blindsided by the YouTube video of him that hit the Internet on March 14. Long-held frustrations with the church motivated Beghe to leave Scientology seven months ago, after he had spent about 12 years in the organization as one of its most celebrated success stories. Over the course of about a year, he negotiated his "disassociation" with the church, trying to give every indication ...

What to get L. Ron Hubbard for his birthday — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
L. Ron Hubbard, the pulp fiction writer who gave the world Battlefield Earth, as well as a nuisance known as Scientology, would have turned 97 years old this Thursday, March 13. Ron’s been worm food for more than a score of years now, so it probably won’t matter to him that the best birthday party being held in his name will take place a couple of days late. On Saturday, March 15, the surprisingly upstart, leaderless movement known as “Anonymous” will ...
