A tutoring agency in Cobb County with ties to the Church of Scientology has drawn critics along with federal dollars. Applied Scholastics pledges to offer only secular lessons. But critics who lodged four complaints last year against the nonprofit — which uses Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s teachings — wrote they feared it wouldn’t keep ideology out of the classroom. State education officials began an annual inspection in February and will observe the group’s tutoring this month. The review will include ...

Education Minister Shirley Bond is defending a ministry publication that identifies a Scientology website as a potential resource for teachers to use while preparing lessons about human rights and social justice. The Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) website is identified as a "supplementary resource" in a teaching guide developed by the ministry as part of an effort to make the K-12 curriculum gay-friendly. It's also mentioned in the guide for a new elective course called Social Justice 12. In an ...

Author(s): Lawrence H. "Larry" Brennan
I worked on the corporate restructuring in the early 80s that lead to the various “ABLE” groups (Narconon, Applied Scholastics, etc.) falling under the “ABLE” umbrella which in turn was 100% controlled by organized scientology’s Sea Organization under different corporate umbrellas (mostly Church of Scientology International “CSI"). I also handled or oversaw the handling of all their main legal matters around the world as part of the Guardian’s Office for some seven years prior to that. Prior to the “corporate sortout” ...

Copyright © 2009 Albuquerque Journal Journal Staff Writer The Second Chance drug rehab program was pitched to lawmakers and the judiciary as the missing link in a broken system that recycled non-violent drug offenders between jails, prisons and the streets. The past year, it has struggled through money problems and accusations that it is housing ineligible inmates. On Saturday, faced with a city-delivered Jan. 31 deadline to vacate, Second Chance officials moved the last of its inmates out. But throughout the ...

LAS CRUCES, N.M. – It's a program aimed at getting kids off the streets and away from drugs. But now Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima is saying "not so fast." The program is called the Drug-Free Marshall Program, and it was quite a hit until the mayor found out it was sponsored by the Church of Scientology.

Swedish taxpayers have been indirectly supporting the Church of Scientology though local government contracts given to front organizations with ties to the group. According to a Sveriges Television (SVT) documentary set to air on Wednesday, 156 of Sweden’s 290 local councils have contributed more than 10 million kronor ($1.4 million) to the Scientology movement. Much of the money has been channeled through contracts with Narconon, a company which offers a controversial treatment method for drug addicts. According to SVT, Narconon also ...

Author(s): Samantha Donovan

The Mental Health Council of Australia has strongly criticised Victoria's national parks authority for leasing a historic public building rent free to a drug treatment service connected to Scientology. The council's chief executive says a group with secret treatment methods should not be able to use a public asset at a time when Australia is desperate for community treatment centres. But Narcanon, which follows the precepts of Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard, says it is just as entitled to lease O'Shannassy ...

A Vancouver principal said his school was uninformed when it invited a group affiliated with the Church of Scientology to speak to a student assembly last month about human rights. John Bevacqua, of St. Patrick regional secondary school, said he hadn't been aware that Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is part of the Scientology movement until it was brought to his attention by a staff member shortly after the group finished its presentation.

Kofi Annan, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Voltaire, L. Ron Hubbard. One of these things is not like the other. If you said “L. Ron Hubbard,” then you are correct. On May 12th, the Youth for Human Rights International organization came to our school and hosted an assembly on human rights. For the uninformed, this may have seemed like an ordinary assembly to raise awareness on an issue that we, as Catholics, should be aware of. Sure, this got the point ...

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 ...

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's unexpectedly strong second-place showing in the recent Iowa Republican straw poll is widely attributed to his support for the FairTax. For those who never heard about it, the FairTax is a national retail sales tax that would replace the entire current federal tax system. It was originally devised by the Church of Scientology in the early 1990s as a way to get rid of the Internal Revenue Service, with which the church was then at war ...
