Archive Message - 1995

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

Could Warren McShane or one of the other Scientology readers on this newsgroup explain to me why the use of Church of Scientology materials at management training seminars would embarrass a prominent company like Allstate Insurance? Why would they be embarrassed merely to have this information revealed? > >Allstate executives at the company's Northbrook, Ill., home office call >the cost-sharing program "fabulously successful," and the disaffected >agents a "small, albeit very vocal," minority.

Why would they oppose Scientology's Management Principles? Why would they be unwilling ever to use them? What's so bad about the Church of Scientology that a major company like Allstate would expend so much energy in order to dissociate itself so completely from any mention of Scientology or its Management Tech?
