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.

They said the raids were conducted on orders of a magistrate acting on a total of seven complaints by former sect members, who claimed they had been defrauded of nearly four million francs (740,000 dollars). The searches were at the headquarters of the Church and a building called the Celebrity Center, which, although not officially a part of the Scientology Church, bills itself is an instruction center in dianetics, the philosophy behind the sect created by the late science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. The Scientology Church in France has been sued several times in the past, mostly on charges of coercion and for charging its followers exorbitant rates.
