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.

She also refused to answer questions about her own use of illegal drugs,in at least one instance since her tenure as Executive Director of CAN began, on the grounds that she might incriminate herself. These admissions supposedly came in the defamation case that Kisser filed against Scientology in federal court in Chicago; they seem to leave little chance that Kisser was, or could be, defamed. An identical case which was dismisssed from Cook County Circuit Court this past spring, has now caused a judge to order that Kisser pay the defendants' legal costs for filing frivolous litigation. Thus Kisser will soon need to explain to her family and fans,why she must write a check for thousands of dollars to the Church of Scientology,and why she cannot even deny under oath that she has used cocaine since becoming the Executive Director of CAN.A history of illegal drug use won't endear Kisser to long-time,conservative CAN activists like Hope Hinde and Ann Olander in Illinois. It certainly will limit her budding relationship with Christian Right figures Craig Branch and James Walker, and with political lobbyist David Bardin and German government official Hans Werner Karlhoff as well. Candidates for Kisser's replacement:Marty Butz,Jeff Jacobsen,Corey Slavin,Arnie Markowitz,Carol Giambalvo,Paul Grosswald and Huheyniaman.
