PLUMSTEAD, Pa. (CBS 3) — A religion with several famous members is hoping to turn a Bucks County building into its new home, but some people living nearby are becoming a little weary of their new neighbor. When Plumstead resident Kim Coffman heard her new neighbors might be the church of Scientology, she was not happy.

Scientology's Fair Tax plot — CBS News
Type: Press
Author(s): Bruce Bartlett
Source: CBS News
The basic theological tenets of the Church of Scientology are well known: a fanatical hatred for psychiatry coupled with a creation myth that involves an evil alien ruler named Xenu and his sundry galactic allies. The basic tenets of its tax policy are somewhat less familiar. But Scientologists promulgated and, at one point, heavily promoted a proposal that would replace all federal income taxes with a national retail sales tax (NRST). And the theology and tax policy aren't entirely unrelated: Xenu ...

"A program that I have personally visited, participated in and spoken to dozens of rescue workers that today feel better. "Shame on anyone ...

Author(s): Brian Montopoli
Source: CBS News
On Saturday, "48 Hours" ran a story about the 2003 murder of Elli Perkins, a murder that her 28-year-old son Jeremy confessed to committing. Jeremy had been hallucinating and behaving erratically before his mother's death, but his parents, devout Scientologists, resisted giving him psychiatric treatment. As "48 Hours" notes, "[s]ome pro-Scientology materials declare that psychiatrists are not only useless, but evil – their medications nothing but poisons." The Perkins' opted to medicate their son primarily with vitamins. The Scientology community was ...

(CBS) There was never a question who committed the murder of Elli Perkins on March 13, 2003. As correspondent Peter Van Sant reports, within hours, police had a confession. His jeans drenched in blood, 28-year-old Jeremy Perkins had just stabbed his mother 77 times. Weeks later, in a recorded interview, Jeremy told a psychiatrist what was going through his mind. "My mom, I thought she was out to get me," he said. "Like sometimes she’d be totally normal and then she’d ...

Tom & Katie's Planned 'Silent Birth' — CBS News
Type: Press
Author(s): Vanessa Mizell
Source: CBS News
(AP) Tom Cruise has been practically shouting from the rooftops about his love for his pregnant fiancée, Katie Holmes. But when their much-anticipated baby is born, the superstar dad probably won't say a word. Cruise, a longtime Scientologist who introduced Holmes to the faith, is likely to follow Scientology's practice of quiet birth. Followers believe the absence of talk and other noise in the delivery room is more healthful for mother and baby. No one's saying publicly where baby Cruise will ...
