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.

In 1986 firefighters responding to a fire found 10 beds in one 2-bedroom apartment. 2 years later a policeman found 12 people living in one apartment. Former members report overcrowding here and at the Quality Inn on US 19, also used to house church staff. In 1992 housing inspectors found 34 of the about 200 apartments were overcrowded, with up to 10 beds in one apartment. After the church was cited for housing violations, they explained that the apartments were being renovated so they had to move people around. The editorial then suggests that city inspectors keep an eye on church housing. Now that the church is building a huge dormitory at Golden Era Studios near Hemet California, I wonder, how many people will be berthed in each room? -- ////// "It's like, a.r.s. is a GREAT BIG SUPER-SMART BRAIN, and Co$ confusion and disinformation tech is a leettle-bitty theety-wheety brain."
