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.

The Church of Scientology members are charged in particular with of "illegal use of medicine" and "fraud" after a Marseille doctor protested he had paid huge sums of money for a cure which did nothing for him. The doctor lodged the complaint after paying 137,000 francs (about 26,000 dollars) in December 1984 for what were described as "lessons" to help him "purify his spirit." The cult members, some of them officials of the Church in Marseille and Nice, are accused in particular of having administered drugs which they had no right to, and of prescribing a "physically punishing regime" for the doctor. The prosecution alleges they received large amounts of money "which had no relation to the state of health of their clients," while a number have also been accused of "premeditated violence."
