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.

Answer that. > Hiya Tim, Thanks for asking. Though I imagine you will get some similar responses, I just wanted to have a shot at your question. Where to begin...hmmm..hmmm..OK let's start with Woody. I actually know that Woody is inane. Woody, an apparent product of the CoS, is a terrible representitive of the CoS. Admitedly any group is going to have their share of "special" people. Why does the CoS have so many? Koos is very special. Robert Marcus, special in a "is that a bowie knife in your pocket or are you just happy to see me" sort of way. Vera delighted in posting the names and addresses of several people here. Milne, lie-boy. Jack Farmer? HA HA HA HA HA. Russell Shaw was the only CoS poster with even the slightest bit of humor and personality. These are the posters that I've actually seen, no doubt I've missed quite a few of the earlier ones. So, the representitives the CoS sends out are just miserable and tedious. I know the CoS has terrible taste. I know that the CoS claims that auditing is a "science-fact", which it is not. Why does the CoS lie? I know that CoS is harassing and intimidating Dennis Erlich. Why does your church harass? I know that the Scientology Spokesmodel, Leissa Goodman, denies her own religious beliefs. Why is she ashamed? I know that the CoS has a recent history of intimidation, violence, harassment. I know the church charges money for its religious services. I know whenever I ask a specific question regarding the beliefs of the CoS I am only referred to an endless stream of LRH texts. This is getting tedious. I won't bore you or anybody else further. These are just a few things I know personally about the CoS. Thanks for asking. Stephen Jones
