Is Scientology in your schools? — The Humanist
Type: Press
Author(s): Robin Jacobs
Source: The Humanist
For obvious reasons, the lauding of religious leaders isn’t supposed to be practiced in U.S. public schools, at least not as a class activity. Yet one widely used school program concludes by having students applaud Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. The program is called Narconon, and it has notable Scientology links. The state of California is now in the midst of a three-month investigation of the Narconon Drug Prevention and Education program with an eye to possibly barring it from the ...

Scientology's town // Striving for mainstream, building new connections — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Robert Farley, Jennifer Farrell
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
A local lawyer and political consultant are hired to help break down barriers for Scientology. It was a sticky decision and everyone in the room knew it. Bennetta Slaughter, the charismatic businesswoman whose tireless committee work had impressed so many, was being nominated to the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce board of directors. "Do we really want one on the board?" several asked. By "one" they meant: a Scientologist. Board members worried that the chamber's rank and file might quit in ...

[Picture / Caption: After Alicia and Jason Regensburg married, the location of their first home was a no-brainer: Clearwater. Alicia grew up in Clearwater’s Scientology circles. Now, the second-generation church member likes living close to the church's spiritual headquarters downtown, where she takes Scientology courses “pretty much constantly.” Also nearby is Clearwater Academy International, the Hubbard-flavored school where the couple’s 3-year-old son, Hudson, is in pre-school.] [Picture / Caption: The Church of Scientology gets credit for bringing Starbucks downtown.

Church settlement brings relief — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Robert Farley
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
To the disappointment of some outsiders, those mired in the Scientology case were ready for the draining episode to end. CLEARWATER — The recent settlement of the 7-year-old Lisa McPherson wrongful death lawsuit against the Church of Scientology was a shocker for many, seemingly coming out of nowhere. It wasn't a spur-of-the-moment decision at all, but rather a resolution that had been simmering more than six months in quiet negotiations at the St. Petersburg law offices of mediator Michael Keane. It ...

Opinion: IRS' 'chosen people' — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
What kind of special tax privileges are members of the Church of Scientology receiving that members of other religions are not? That is a question the Internal Revenue Service refuses to answer - even for a federal appeals court. The IRS claims it has a legal obligation to keep tax return information confidential, and for years it has extended that justification to the details of a 1993 agreement between the church and the IRS. Reportedly, in exchange for the church dropping ...
