Judges: Scientology is a religion — West Australian

Scientology recognised as religion by High Court // The question is 'What is religion?' — Australian Financial Review
Type: Press
Author(s): David Solomon
Source: Australian Financial Review
Scientology is a religious institution and exempt from State payroll tax, the High Court ruled unanimously yesterday. It was the first time that the court came head on with the question "What is religion?". All the judges rejected the view that belief in a supreme being was essential to religion. Justices Mason and Brennan, in a joint judgment, stressed the importance of the case in determining fundamental questions of religious freedom in Australia and the extent to which an individual is ...

Scientology wins status of church in High Court — The Australian
Type: Press
Author(s): Carol Simmonds
Source: The Australian
THE High Court yesterday decided to end God's exclusive reign over the nation's religious affairs, opening the way for many non-mainstream religions to claim the legal status of a church and all the financial and other privileges that go with that status. In a landmark decision handed down in Perth, the Full Court unanimously rejected a narrow definition of religion and moved towards the American judicial view under which Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture and Secular Humanism have been held to be ...

Scientology's status challenged in court — Australian Financial Review
Type: Press
Author(s): David Solomon
Source: Australian Financial Review
A VERY old and pure form of tax avoidance favoured by governments throughout the western world came before the High Court yesterday. The device is not available to individuals. First they must band together and become recognised as a religion, before they can take advantage of the tax exemptions which are provided by legislatures for religions, or religious organisations, or religious bodies. The case before the High Court concerned the Church of the New Faith, as it is known in Victoria, ...

Scientology makes its move for an 'all-clear' — Mercury (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Wayne Crawford
Source: Mercury (Australia)
Scientology was recently legalised in Victoria. Wayne Crawford reports on a bid by Bob Allsop (pictured), its community Affairs Director in that State, to clear obstacles to Scientology in Tasmania. A 20th century religious confessional aid — or a high-priced but primitive lie detector? Can it really register the screams of terror of tomatoes about to be assaulted with a knife, as was claimed by its inventor, L. Ron Hubbard, an American science fiction writer? Used correctly, is it a useful ...

Scientology ban to go despite court's ruling — The Age (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Louise Carbines, Damien Comerford
Source: The Age (Australia)
The Victorian Government will go ahead with plans to lift bans on Scientology despite a ruling yesterday by the State Full Court that the Scientology organisations could not claim to be a religion. The Minister for Health, Mr Roper, said that the court's ruling would have no impact whatsoever on the State Government decision to amend the Psychological Practices Act which has outlawed the Church of Scientology since 1975. He hopes to have the amendment passed by the end of the ...

MELBOURNE. - A Supreme Court judge in Melbourne ruled yesterday that the Church of the New Faith, practising scientology, was not a religious institution. The church had asked Mr Justice Crockett to rule that it was a religious institution and not liable to pay State payroll tax. The church had appealed against the refusal of the Commissioner of Payroll Tax to exempt it from paying payroll tax. Mr Justice Crockett said an institution did not become religious in character simply because ...

Scientology religion claim sham, says judge — The Age (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Prue Innes, Aileen Berry
Source: The Age (Australia)
The Scientology organisation's claims to be a religion were a sham, a Supreme Court judge said yesterday. Some of its services were grotesque, a mockery of religion, he said. Mr Justice Crockett made the comments in dismissing an appeal by the organisation, calling itself the Church of the New Faith, against a decision of the Commissioner of Payroll Tax not to grant it exemption from the tax as a religious institution. The Guardian of the Melbourne Church of Scientology, the Reverend ...
