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.

I was particularly impressed by the video evidence of one of the adherents trying to exercise thought control over an ashtray. The ashtray actually raised itself in the air under his command. Pity the effectiveness of this demonstration of mind control was somewhat undermined by the fact that the adherent was HOLDING the ashtray the whole time. The scientologists were invited to respond to the charges laid at their door by the program but refused. Stupid clams. Their refusal just added to the sense of menace and secrecy surrounding the cult. At the beginning of the program, the narrator started off by saying "this is the program that the church of Scientology did not want you to see". This is a reference to the Co$ attempts to secure an injuction against the program makers. It was wonderful to see people interviewed whom I have heard so much about - Vaughn Young, Stacey Young, Russell Miller, Jon Atack. These people are heroes as far as I am concerned, as well as those relatives and ex-Scientologists who had the courage to allow themselves to be interviewed without any attempts to conceal their identities. Anyone who has read the affidavits and other written evidence of "Fair Game" on ars over the last few months will understand just how courageous these people are. They have my profound respect. This year I have seen more publicity in the UK media about this evil cult than at any time since the late 60s when a British Cabinet Minister condemned the cult as an evil organisation. The lid is being removed from the can of worms. I rarely use the word "evil" to describe anyone or anything but I attach the word to Scientology with no hesitation whatsoever. And now, thanks to "The Big Story", that evil has been exposed to millions of UK viewers. -- Sister Clara - SP2.5 ************************************************************************ * Little Sisters of the Perpetually Juicy * ************************************************************************
