The press vs. Scientology — Salon
Type: Press
Author(s): Joe Strupp
Source: Salon
After years of conflict, the church and the media seem to have reached a truce. Is it because Scientology has become less confrontational — or because the press is scared? For anyone interested in the Church of Scientology, the May 6, 1991, issue of Time magazine remains a milestone in news coverage. For those who back the church, it ran an outrageously biased account that eventually led to a libel suit by the church — later dismissed — and prompted Scientology ...

Bush vetoes Scientology bill — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed a bill Thursday that would have required schools to inform parents about the possible repercussions of mental disorder diagnoses before referring students for mental evaluations. By attempting to color parents' perception, the bill "places the school between the parent and the medical professional," Bush said. The bill was backed by the Church of Scientology and sponsored by Rep. Gus Barreiro, R-Miami Beach and Sen. Victor Crist, R-Tampa.

The sponsor gets word that Bush plans to veto $500,000 for the prison program. TALLAHASSEE — A $500,000 program that uses some teachings of Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard to help prison inmates likely will be vetoed by the governor today, the bill's sponsor says. The program, known as Criminon, was quietly added to the state budget by one powerful legislator: Rep. Gus Barreiro, a Miami Beach Republican.

Editorial // Scientology in schools — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Bills in the state Legislature that aim to keep students from receiving psychiatric treatment bear the familiar marks of Scientology. L. Ron Hubbard was a science fiction writer before he decided, more than a half-century ago, to publish his views on mental health. Now, apparently, his adherents are writing Florida law. Two bills aimed at schoolchildren that are winding their way through the Legislature bear a familiar Hubbard trademark. They hold the practice of modern mental health medicine in contempt and, ...

Scientologists push mental health law — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Alisa Ulferts
Source: St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Opponents say the legislation takes advantage of lingering stigma and will deter parents from seeking help for their children. TALLAHASSEE - Legislation backed by an offshoot of the Church of Scientology aims to discourage public school students from seeking mental health services. The measure would require schools to tell parents that any mental health treatment would be part of a student's permanent record, which is true only in limited cases now. It also would require school officials to tell parents that ...
