The Bulletin (Australia)
THE FEDERAL government's passion for commissions of inquiry into all manner of atrocity, iniquity and anomaly may have helped prepare the ground for some unofficial and oddly based fact-gathering bodies. When the Australian Citizens' Commission on Human Rights takes out newspaper space to call for submissions on "Psychiatric Violations," for instance, the casual reader might scarcely pause to remark that the commission is sponsored by the Church of Scientology. It has become almost a reflex in Australia to regard any activity ...

The ban on Scientology has been lifted in Western Australia.

The Melbourne Observer (Australia)
SCIENTOLOGY - the mystery-shrouded religion that came under intense official attack in Victoria - has launched a massive comeback campaign. The faith's leader, L. Ron Hubbard, has ordered wide-scale expansion throughout Australia. He has told his Australian followers: "There's no reason not to create a wildfire expansion in Australia now. "Disseminate more. Train more. Audit more." The Observer has obtained some of the personal letters and orders which Hubbard has issued to his Australian officials. They clearly indicate the faith's determination ... Mar 14, 1973 Murphy: not our function to decide on true religion — The Australian
THE Federal Attorney-General, Senator Murphy, said yesterday he thought requirements on the Government to recognise religious bodies should be dropped. He told the Senate he thought the system was "bad" and "unhealthy," and the relevant clauses should be taken off the statute books. The former Attorney-General, Senator Ivor Greenwood (Lib, Vic) asked if Senator Murphy was aware of a report on the practice of Scientology, prepared by Mr K. Anderson, QC, now a judge of the Victorian Supreme Court. He said ...
