In the pantheon of D.C. area weird religious places to go and gawk, you’ve got the George Washington Masonic Memorial, the Oz-like LDS Washington D.C. Temple Visitors’ Center and now L.

Author(s): Jack R. Payton
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
There are some Germans out there who don't trust John Travolta. Not only that, at least one of these Germans - actually a member of Germany's parliament - doesn't at all like the idea of Travolta talking with the president of the United States or his national security adviser, Sandy Berger, about the state of U.S.-German relations. The reason this German lawmaker worries about the popular movie actor getting to see the president and his advisers is that Travolta is a ...

The U.S. Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that since the Scientology organization had made a case—uncontested by the Government—that it was a religion, a 1963 raid on its headquarters was illegal because it violated its constitutional rights. In a much-publicized raid on Jan. 4, 1963, agents from the Food and Drug Administration seized so-called "E-meters" and stacks of literature from the headquarters of the Founding Church of Scientology here. The FDA charged at the time that the Scientologists made false claims ...
