The Scientology-backed rehab promises addicts they can sweat out their demons in sweltering saunas. But critics charge that the organization is the devil itself. L. Ron Hubbard, the prolific science fiction author and founder of the Church of Scientology, may have been judged “a mental case” (according to the F.B.I.) and “a pathological liar” (according to a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge), but to tens of thousands of his eager followers worldwide, the man discovered an approach to recovery that outclasses ...

Author(s): Lawrence Wright

On August 19, 2009, Tommy Davis, the chief spokesperson for the Church of Scientology International, received a letter from the film director and screenwriter Paul Haggis. “For ten months now I have been writing to ask you to make a public statement denouncing the actions of the Church of Scientology of San Diego,” Haggis wrote. Before the 2008 elections, a staff member at Scientology’s San Diego church had signed its name to an online petition supporting Proposition 8, which asserted that ...

Does John Travolta believe his baby is the reincarnation of his dead son? — Daily Mail (UK)

Author(s): Richard Price

Sunrise in the humidity of deepest Florida, a hazy mist cloaking the ground as the coolness of the night turns to cloying heat, and a lone individual trudges along an airport runway in a pristine tracksuit. He won't be breaking any land speed records - in fact this version of running barely qualifies as a brisk trot - but at 56 John Travolta is no spring chicken. Consider, however, that his only exercise until recently was lifting double cheeseburgers to his ...

The General Medical Council has been forced to disclose documents it tried to keep secret about its handling of a case involving a lay panel member who was banned from hearing professional conduct cases after failing to disclose the extent of his links with the Church of Scientology. The UK regulator has written to around 70 doctors to tell them that Christopher Brightmore, one of the panel members who sat on their cases, had his contract as a panellist terminated in ...

An ex-police officer with close connections to the Church of Scientology, which opposes psychiatric medicine, served as a panel member in professional conduct cases held by the doctor's watchdog, the General Medical Council, which has lost its battle to cover up its handling of the affair. Between 2002 and 2004 former Detective Chief Superintendent Chris Brightmore sat on the GMC's professional conduct panel in 70 cases and more than 50 private hearings. The extent of Brightmore's work for the GMC was ...

A scientologist doctor, who gave evidence on the suicide of a church member she treated, is promoting a controversial educational resource in New Zealand schools. Dr Helen Smith gave evidence this year to a coroner's inquiry after the death of David Sampson in December 2008. Sampson had won $651,000 in Lotto's first division in 1991, but battled with alcohol abuse and depression. A friend of Sampson was upset at the church's policy against psychiatric help: "He was suffering from depression, but ...

Scientology practices 'putting people at risk' — The Age (Australia)

Author(s): Barney Zwartz

DANGEROUS dismissal of psychiatry and mental health problems must be part of a Senate inquiry into the Church of Scientology, a Melbourne cult counsellor said yesterday. Cult Counselling Australia director Raphael Aron said Scientologists put vulnerable people at risk by taking them off psychiatric drugs and treatment, instead treating them with vitamins and E-meter readings. Mr Aron supported Senator Nick Xenophon's call in Federal Parliament on Tuesday for a Senate inquiry into the Scientologists. The senator tabled letters citing forced abortions, ...

I knew Scientology was in trouble when the media moved on from the usual silly gossip about its celebrity members to much darker, disturbing issues at the heart of the movement. After a Paris court last month convicted several Scientologists and two organisations associated with the movement in France of organised fraud, and amid other investigations in France looking at a suicide and an alleged abduction, Oscar-winning film-maker Paul Haggis, a long-time member, quit Scientology. Haggis, who wrote and directed Crash, ...

Court of Appeal rejects millionaires’ challenge to income tax — Metropolitan News-Enterprise (Los Angeles, California)

Source: Metropolitan News-Enterprise (Los Angeles, California)
A ballot initiative imposing a tax on millionaires to fund mental health services did not violate equal protection, this district’s Court of Appeal ruled yesterday. Reasoning that taxpayers earning more than $1 million annually do not comprise a “suspect class” requiring strict scrutiny analysis, Div. Two rejected a challenge to Proposition 63 by two La Canada Scientologists. Proposition 63 was passed in 2004 and expanded funding for mental health services for all Californians by imposing an additional tax of 1 percent ...

Dead of night, and on a deserted Florida landing strip, the silence of the oppressively hot early hours is broken by the low whirring of an electric golf cart, driving lazy circuits. At the wheel is a bulky, lone figure, hunched forward over the controls as he tries to kill time during another long, sleepless night. It is a sight that has become something of a regular occurrence in recent weeks, as Hollywood star John Travolta acts out his bizarre nocturnal ...

The night after Lisa McPherson died, the leader of the Church of Scientology sent word for one of his top lieutenants to wait by a pay phone at the Holiday Inn Surfside on Clearwater Beach. When Marty Rathbun answered the ringing phone in the lobby, David Miscavige let him have it: Why aren’t you all over this mess? The police are poking around. Do something. "Yes sir," Rathbun said.

A display on the mezzanine of one of Concordia University’s downtown buildings turned heads last week for proclaiming that the profession of psychiatry is an “industry of death.” Students who walked into the Library building on de Maisonneuve Blvd. two weeks ago were faced with a large exhibit, decorated to resemble a filthy asylum, with various displays on the historical evils of psychiatry and the quackery practiced by its disciples. What is not immediately apparent is that the display was organized ...
