Gerry Armstrong — Glosslip

Scientology's Holy War — Maisonneuve
Type: Press
Author(s): Bruce Livesey
Source: Maisonneuve
Bruce Livesey investigates how former inner-sanctum member Gerry Armstrong became the Salman Rushdie of Scientology. The first time I met Gerry Armstrong, I thought he was paranoid. I’d driven down from Vancouver, summer 2007, into the verdant Fraser Valley to Chilliwack, BC, a somnolent, wind-blown town surrounded by jagged mountain ranges. A place as far removed from Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Scientology’s loopiness as one can possibly get. Armstrong and his third wife Caroline live in a walk-up, one-bedroom apartment ...

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 ...

Did Canadian President of Scientology Implicitly Threaten Protester?! — The Frame Problem
Type: Blog
Source: The Frame Problem
Here is a video of “Reverend” Yvette Shank, President of the “Church” of Scientology Canada, speaking to a protester on an April 20 mini-raid protest in Toronto. Shank asks the protester why she is not wearing a mask. The protester says she is not wearing a mask on account of the warm weather and because she is not afraid of CoS and does not think that the CoS could find her anyway. Shank says that CoS would not even bother trying ...

The internet pranksters who started a war — Channel 9 (aka ninemsn) (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Shaun Davies
Source: Channel 9 (aka ninemsn) (Australia)
They've become the sworn enemies of a controversial religion, famous for unsettling online video attacks and protesting en masse in creepy masks. But the elusive internet group known as Anonymous didn't start out with a concrete plan to bring down Scientology. Before they got serious, Anonymous members say, they were only in it for laughs. In the years before "declaring war", the group's stock-in-trade was the creation of internet jokes revolving around, for instance, kitsch 1980s singer Rick Astley. Anonymous's transformation ...

Queens Anonymous Member Gets a Letter from Scientologists — Village Voice

Author(s): John DeSio

[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, ...

YouTube rolls out Scientology double standard // XenuTV vs. Anonymous hate crimes — The Register (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): Cade Metz
Source: The Register (UK)
It seems that YouTube has one set of rules for The Church of Scientology and another set for Scientology's critics. Two weeks ago, YouTube vaporized a 10,000-subscriber-strong channel run by well-known Scientology critic Mark Bunker. His "Xenutv1" deserved to die, the YouTubers said, because they had already axed an earlier account, "Xenutv," where Bunker infringed a few copyrights. Indeed, YouTube's terms of service clearly say "A user whose account has been terminated is prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other ...

Scientology threatens Wikileaks with injunction — The Register (UK)

Author(s): Cade Metz
Source: The Register (UK)
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 ...

Author(s): Richard Johnson

THE Church of Scientology is striking back at a group that's been harassing it. The wacky religion - which claims Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Juliette Lewis and Leah Remini as members - has been the target of a group calling itself "Anonymous," whose members take credit for bombarding Scientology churches across the country with prank calls, bomb threats and cyber attacks since January. But now the church has counterattacked by posting YouTube videos under the title, "Anonymous Facts," detailing ...

Two parking lots were cleared, the center’s Champion Street entrance was closed and blinds were drawn in all windows at the building at 74 N. Washington Ave. Employees were told the security level was raised and they were encouraged to curtail outside activities near the building. “We learned of potential for increased ...

Malignant narcissism, L. Ron Hubbard, and Scientology's policies of narcissistic rage
Type: Research
Author(s): Stephen A. Kent, Jodi M. Lane
In this article, we argue that Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, likely presented a personality disorder known as malignant narcissism, and then we establish that this disorder probably contributed to his creation of organizational policies against perceived enemies that reflected his narcissistic rage. We illustrate our argument by discussing Hubbard’s creation of an internal Scientology organization called the Guardian’s Office, which carried out a sustained and covert attack against a Scientology critic, Paulette Cooper. This attack, and the Scientology policies that ...
