Jul 8, 2010 Camelot Castle Hotel: down the online reputation rabbit-hole — Mu Kau Media
Mu Kau Media
Scratching the surface of Camelot Castle Hotel’s online reputation produces worrying results Update: 08/07/10 — today I got a threatening phone call from someone claiming to be a Church of Scientology minister in the USA (he withheld his number of course). He demanded to know what I had against John Mappin and Scientology. From the outset, he did that Scientology ‘handling‘ thing I’ve since learned about. Apparently, they’re trained to assault you with accusations about you, your past, your problems etc ...
Oct 30, 2009 [Letter] Says story on the 'School Drops Program' was misleading, inaccurate — Washington Missourian (Missouri)
Philadelphia City Paper
This week, CP got a call from a Northern Liberties resident with an unusual story. He, and about 50 other NoLibs residents, had attended a police town hall meeting on September 8. On his way out, he happened to pick up some literature that had been placed on a table by the door – in particular, three pamphlets entitled, "The Truth about Marijuana," "The Truth About Pain Killers," and "The Truth About Drugs."
The pamphlets, he says, seemed ordinary enough at ...

Youth need more positive influences
Recently the newspaper talks about the difficulties of the youth going back to school.
Fewer classes in the community college, fewer preschool and after-school programs and fewer cultural programs because the government can’t financially support these activities anymore.
This can create the risk of a reduction of the education and culture in society, with the result of more youth hanging around on the streets, more drugs, gangs, etc.
For years, as a member of the Church ...
Jul 30, 2009 Educational matters: Church should be more upfront — Glendale News-Press (California)
Glendale News-Press (California)
About 20 years ago a delegation from the church of Scientology came to my school and asked that I be fired from my position as a teacher (some might take note here of a recurring theme in my professional life). They had objected to a conversation I had with my students about a constitutional issue, and secondarily, about truth in advertising. Time magazine had just done a feature article about the organization, and it managed to make its way into a ...
Jul 6, 2009 Scientologists advertising with alias web sites — Switched
Web and animation designer Reese Leysen is inundated with Google Adsense and YouTube ads on a daily basis, much like the rest of us Internet dwellers.
One day he decided to poke around a bit and noticed that the site for "Foundation for a Drug-Free World" was chock-full of top-dollar production, the sort that would be far out of the reach of a typical non-profit organization on a limited budget. This left him scratching his head.
Later on, however, he stumbled ...

And now, the next Walt Disney Studios— the Church of Scientology! That is, if entrepreneurs connected with the Hollywood based cult can muscle into the film business with their proposal to homogenize films by tailoring them to the tastes of the unwashed masses. It all began last July, when Future Films, a new, eccentric studio, began running ads in

Los Angeles Times (California)
Emerging from years of internal strife and public scandal, the Scientology movement has embarked on a sweeping and sophisticated campaign to gain new influence in America. The goal is to refurbish the tarnished image of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and elevate him to the ranks of history's great humanitarians and thinkers. By so doing, the church hopes to broaden the acceptability of Hubbard's Scientology teachings and attract millions of new members. The campaign relies on official church programs and a ...

Operating under auspices of the Church of Scientology are dozens of groups, many of them separate legal entities. Untangling Scientology's lines of organizations can be difficult; even the sect's own charts that have been used in court cases are complex. Here are some of Scientology's organizations.
Flag Service Organization — The legal name of Scientology's Clearwater operation, which serves as the sect's spiritual headquarters. Before 1981 the organization was part of the Church of Scientology of California, and Pinellas County officials ...
