HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STATE OF OKLAHOMA August 25, 1989 OPEN LETTER TO CITIZENS OF NEWKIRK AND KAY COUNTY: In response to your packet and the numerous letters of protest concerning the Narconon Drug treatment facility to be located at the Chilocco Indian School complex, I want you to know that I, too, am extremely concerned and am doing everything I know to stop this development. I have contacted and expressed my concerns to every individual and entity in state government that ...

Letters // On Scientology — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Editor: I was in Scientology for 12 years. Now I face being jailed because I am talking to the public about the real story of Scientology — that it involves hypnosis, brainwashing, and satanism. All because I am trying to prevent what happened to me from happening to other people. It may seem by my violations of the court order not to speak publicly about Scientology that I have no respect for the law. Such is not the case. In fact ...

Letter: Contributions are refundable — Montreal Gazette
Type: Press
Source: Montreal Gazette
Your May 31 edition referred to a suit involving the Church of Scientology and a couple of former parishioners. Contrary to the article, the church has and applies a refund policy on contributions from its members. The Church of Scientology finances its activities from its parishioners with fixed contributions paid for specific services. The church and its lawyers have taken the position that such religious services do not fall under the purview of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act as the contrary ...

Letters // Ignoring achievements of L. Ron Hubbard — Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Virginia)
More: link
Type: Press
Source: Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Virginia)
To the Editor: Modern journalism seems to have developed a nearly terminal case of "tunnel vision" — only believing things that are "controversial," "horrifying," "absurd" or "sexy." Things which conflict with this journalistic "formula" are either ignored or ridiculed. Such is the sad fate of staff writer Patrick Lackey's June 26 review of a book ostensibly concerning the late American author and founder of the Scientology religion, L. Ron Hubbard (Bare-Faced Messiah, by Russell Miller). The book itself also suffered this ...

Letters: The 'Big League Sales' church — East Grinstead Courier (UK)

Source: East Grinstead Courier (UK)
The 'Big League Sales' Church AS the perpetrator of the supposed 'hooligan antics' against the Concerned Businessman's Association at the May Fayre, could I reply to the Scientology Public Relations officer's allegations? Worried by the Courier's recent story on the tactic of luring children into Scientology via front groups, I stopped by at the Concerned Businessman's Association stand to find whether they admitted any link to Scientology. Asked the question, one of the scientologists on the stand said 'yes', the other ...

Source: East Grinstead Courier (UK)
Scientology defended I HAVE several points to make about your last week's coverage of the Church of Scientology. 1. On your front page, you used photographs taken by two men who at the recent May Fayre heckled and abused the two female Scientologists who were giving their help to get the street signs cleaned. In fact these photographs were taken while the heckIing was going on. Thus these men have been "rewarded” for their hooligan antics. 2. You rely almost exclusively ...

There and Back Again Dear Editor: Re: "Scientology: The Other Side of the Looking Glass" [L.A. Weekly, April 4-10]. I guess it's too much to expect a difficult thing like total truth to be approached in your newspaper. You do pretty well with the movie schedules, not bad with the nightclub billings either. But why do you have to mess up with something that counts, something that has saved lives, salvaged marriages, made people happier and more able — something ...

Congratulations to The Times (Nov. 5) for revealing the absurdity of the core beliefs of Scientology. I hope that everyone will now laugh this so-called "religion" off the face of the Earth. "A tyrannical ruler 75 million years ago, overpopulation on Earth and other planets, H-bombs exploded way back then, the tan spirits captured in chemical compounds and contaminated with evil"—Leapin' Lizards, it must be a job for Superman! It is obvious why Scientology doesn't want this nonsense made public: the ...

Scientology supplement [Letter] — Globe and Mail (Canada)
Type: Press

Toronto ONT — I was really delighted that The Globe and Mail circulated the 18- page supplement on Scientology. It is not surprising that some of your readers would take exception to this. Ignorance and bigotry is a burden that is carried on the shoulders of a few of us and, thank God, it is only the minority and does not express the majority. Paul Jaconello MD Toronto

On Scientology Editor: There appears to be a parallel between Arthur Krowitz's defense of Scientology (May 28 issue of Clearwater Sun) and military mentality: "The best means of defense is a direct attack." A raw, crude, offensive approach in support of "religious practice" is hardly the spiritual approach as most of us understand it. Students of Scientology who flood Clearwater from all corners of the United States, the continent, etc., are often eager to share their experience with anyone who will ...

Cult invasion [Letter] — Globe and Mail (Canada)
Type: Press

I wish to express my profound disappointment in The Globe and Mail for allowing the cult organization called the Church of Scientology to invade the homes of unsuspecting readers. I am surprised that a national newspaper of such academic standing would take part in such an insidious effort to benefit the cause of scientology, considering The Globe's long running commitment to public awareness.

Type: Press

Your newspaper, by including an 18-page advertising supplement on Scientology in its May 18 issue, has lent the credibility and prestige of Canada's most respected daily newspaper to an organization recently found guilty of fradulent practices in an American civil suit.
