Parents may be powerless to help their children once they're "trapped" in a cult, but alert parents can help steer kids clear before it's too late, a spokesman for the Manitoba Cult Awareness Centre says. "Once the kids get into a cult, get trapped in a cult, they can't get out," Gerd Gillespie said. And he said the Church of Scientology is the toughest cult to get people out of once they're hooked. The church is so aggressive in "going after" ...

A Winnipeg company is winding down a fund-raising campaign for Narconon — a drug rehabilitation program affiliated with the Church of Scientology — after The Sun exposed Naroconon's connection to the cult last week. But about 35 teenagers selling pepperoni and T-shirts for Mr. Pepperette, a division of Wellington Food Service formed July 1, will work only until the end of the summer — and are continuing at their own request, manager Al Pringle said yesterday. "They want to stick with ...

B.C. politician springs to defence — Winnipeg Sun

The Church of Scientology is a "church like any other church," a Vancouver politician said yesterday. Social Credit MLA John Reynolds said he doesn't understand why there is so much fuss over Narconon's links to Scientology. "They (Narconon) have operated here in B.C for many years, and I think they have a reputation of doing a good job," Reynolds said. Reynolds recently wrote a letter to Narconon praising the program on its silver anniversary. The letter was included in a package ...

Top management in a Winnipeg company operating a fund-raising campaign for Narconon — a drug rehabiliation program with ties to the Church of Scientology — have been involved with the church for years, former employees allege. Wellington Food Service partners Brian Knowles and Al Pringle Jr. have been cult members for at least three years, and have tried to convince company employees to join the cult, three men who worked for the company claim. "They were all into it really heavy. ...

The phone's been ringing off the hook at a the Winnipeg branch of Narcotics Anonymous since Sun stories on the connection between an unrelated group, Narconon, and the controversial Church of Scientology. "People have been calling ... but one of the differences is we are self-supporting — we don't solicit funds or contributions," said NA volunteer Bob R., a seven-year member who first heard of Narconon this week. "We've had people calling us up, questioning whether we're affiliated or related. We're ...

Two local teenagers who raised money for Narconon — a drug rehabilitation program linked to the Church of Scientology — say they were told they'd make more money fund-raising than going to school this fall. Adam Blackburn and Dale Fairfax, who are no longer fund-raising for Narconon, said their supervisor told them they likely wouldn't want to go back to school if they continued to work as salesmen. "He said 'You won't be going back to school after you see the ...

A Vancouver man whose testimonial is used by Narconon in its promotional material says the organization is "extremely suspect" because of its links to the Church of Scientology. "They (Narconon) are definitely a part of the Scientology operation," Tom Perry said yesterday in an interview from B.C. "I know they rehabilitated my son, I know they rehabilitated his wife, but I wouldn't trust them as far as I can throw them." Although Perry doesn't deny writing the 1987 testimontial praising Narconon, ...

About 30 teenagers hired to raise funds for Narconon — a drug rehabilitation program linked to the Church of Scientology — picketed The Sun's offices yesterday to protest news reports on Narconon and the church last week. Several teenagers — accompanied by an adult spokesman bearing press kits — complained a recent Sun story linking Narconon to the alleged cult left the perception the teen salespeople are linked to the cult as well. "All we were trying to do was get ...

The Church of Scientology has turned a 24-year-old Winnipeg man into a different person, his father claimed yesterday. The worried father, who asked to remain unnamed, said his son has been involved in the organization for about two years, and even though he works for the church, he has nothing to show for it. "I've asked him a few times, 'What the hell are you doing there seven days a week?' " he said. "They've turned his mind around." The son ...

Harassement shouldn't quiet media, say cult experts — Winnipeg Sun

Type: Press

The Church of Scientology has a long and undistinguished history of harassing its detractors — but that shouldn't stop the media or anyone else from speaking out against it, cult experts say. The church commonly threatens lawsuits, tries to have detractors arrested, and harasses sources and individual reporters, said Cynthia Kisser of the Cult Awareness Network in Chicago. And recent Sun stories linking the church — alleged by experts to be a dangerous, mind-control cult — to Narconon, a drug rehabilitation ...

The Church of Scientology is a cult interested in making money, claims a local cult expert. Gordon Gillespie of the Manitoba Cult Awareness Centre calls Scientology — which is linked to the drug-rehabilitation program Narconon, currently fund-raising in the city — the "daddy" of cults. Gillespie said Scientology's church status gives it tax breaks, but it doesn't have churches and services like other religions. "I'd like to say 'No, they're not successful,' but they're still here and they're persistent." Winnipeggers who ...

The director of public affairs for the Church of Scientology in Western Canada denied yesterday it misled about 60 Winnipeg teenagers, hired to raise funds for a drug rehabilitation program linked to the church. "I just think it's very much a tempest in a teapot. This (project) employed a lot of kids," Robbie Hepburn, who flew in to Winnipeg from British Columbia, said. "Yes, there's a connection, but it's not some kind of covert or bad connection." Just because Narconon uses ...

Winnipeggers should steer clear of the Church of Scientology and its many organizations, which include a drug rehabilitation program called Narconon, a U.S cult expert said yesterday. "There are far safer programs," Cynthia Kisser, executive director of the Cult Awareness Network, said in an interview from Chicago. "Narconon is more likely to do harm than good." The Sun reported Sunday about 60 Winnipeg teenagers have been hired to sell pepperoni and T-shirts door-to-door to raise money for Narconon. However, a Narconon ...

Dozens of Winnipeg teenagers have been hired to raise funds for a drug rehabilitation program which critics charge is nothing more than a recruiting front for a "mind-control cult." About 60 teenagers who answered newspaper advertisements for summer jobs are selling pepperoni and T-shirts door-to-door to raise money for Narconon — a drug rehab organization linked to the Church of Scientology. And while officials from the program and the man behind the drive say it's all above board, it has sparked ...

When Narconon comes to town, the Church of Scientology — and trouble — follows, residents of Newkirk, Okla. warned yesterday. Newkirk civic leaders were threatened and harassed by the controversial church and its private investigators after they opposed a Narconon treatment centre set up on Indian territory near the small, rural town in 1989, Mayor Gary Bilger said. "We had three investigators in our little town of 2,300 off and on for weeks," he said. "My little boy was 11 years ...
