Archive Message - 1995

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 term "religion" being quite loosely defined here. Hell, if you check the group (which this is also posted to, and, incidentally, followups are set there exclusively), you'll note that most objections are _not_ based on Scientology in general, they're based on what Scientology does, what it stands for, and what their goals are. Few there would dispute the right of a religion to exist; fewer would advocate destruction of all involved. However, we can -- and do -- despise their actions, criminal or otherwise. And we also fight against their actions. [invocation of Godwin's Law deleted] - Tim Skirvin (tskirvin@uiuc.edu) Suppressive Person in Training
