Sep 5, 2008 Letters / Fair play for Scientology Re: "Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination?" (Gazette, Aug. 16) — Montreal Gazette
Re: "Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination?" (Gazette, Aug. 16). Because of the outrageous allegations in this story about the Church of Scientology I feel the need to respond. First of all, we don't know the name or whereabouts of the so-called "anonymiss," nor have we tried to find out. Her claims are ludicrous and, to be charitable, the product of her wild imagination. However, the campaign she and her "anonymous" comrades are involved in is, by their own ...

Type: Press release
Dear Ms. Pouw, I am sure you are aware that on the 11th of March, 2008, I issued a press release entitled
"Mother Bear Defends Cub"
. This release detailed my efforts to bring my daughter, Katherine, home for a vacation with her family. During the fifteen years that my daughter has been a member of the Church of Scientology's Sea Organization, she had only come home for one three day visit in 1996 - cut short by the Church due ...
Aug 22, 2008 Scientology fight with 'Anonymous' hits home in New York — NY Daily News (New York)
NY Daily News (New York)
The war between the Church of Scientology and the group that calls itself Anonymous is heating up. New York City has become one of the chief battlefronts. Critics of the church - which counts John Travolta and Tom Cruise among its members - have staged at least nine protests here in the last year. Last Saturday, Anonymous members picketed the Scientology Center on W. 46th. Many came dressed as nurses and doctors to lampoon what one protester tells us is "the ...

Jul 6, 2008 Letters to the Editor // Scientologist takes umbrage at remark — Rocky Mountain News (Denver, Colorado)
Rocky Mountain News (Denver, Colorado)
Rex Fowler, Denver I was surprised that out of all of the remarks that comedian Kathy Griffin made during the fourth season debut of her TV show,
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, the Rocky Mountain News chose to include a discriminatory remark about my religion ("Griffin always 'on,' "" Spotlight, June 11). If the remark had been about Judaism or Islam, would the Rocky have included it in the article? I am very proud to be a Scientologist. I ... May 6, 2008 Queens Anonymous Member Gets a Letter from Scientologists — Village Voice
[Picture / Caption: That's Mike Vitale. Guess the costume didn't work too well.] When Queens resident Mike Vitale was outed as a member of Anonymous by the Church of Scientology last month, he specifically asked Church members if they planned to prove his criticisms correct by declaring him “fair game” and subjecting him to the threats and intimidation that are said to be inherent in that Church policy. Would they threaten him or show up at his house? Well, they did—or, ...

Los Angeles Times (California)
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
When I was 17, I left the Church of Scientology. When I was 22, my parents and all members of my immediate family were pressured by the church to "disconnect" from me. When I heard of the protests by Anonymous on behalf of all those who have lost their families, homes and savings accounts to Scientology, I thanked God that someone was finally willing to listen. Reading Michael Shermer's op-ed article, I was surprised to find myself ...
Feb 11, 2008 Letter to the Editor / Scientology should be met with tolerance — Variety
Dear Peter, I was disappointed by your recent column on Scientology and Tom Cruise. You say some things that are surprising coming from a man of your intelligence and education. You seem to recognize that, in America, we are all supposed to be free to practice – and even preach – the religion of our choice. Then, you appear to deny this fundamental right to Scientologists because of "their beliefs and protocols." You add "To be a Scientologist is not like ...
