Jun 19, 2008 Watchdog web site draws legal threats from Scientologists, Mormons — FOX News
Wikileaks.org — a watchdog Web site that leaks corporate and government documents — hasn't officially launched, yet it has already uncovered human-rights violations in China, claimed to have swayed Kenya's Dec. 2007 elections and exposed the inner workings of the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay. So many were surprised when it recently turned its sights on two lawyer-heavy religious groups: the Mormons and the Scientologists. Founded in December 2006, Wikileaks boasts of an archive of 1.2 million released documents, sent ...

In the early 1990s, Michael and Marla Sklar deducted part of their children's school tuition from their income tax in an amount equal to the proportion they viewed their tuition going toward religious instruction, as opposed to secular teaching (e.g., math, english).

May 14, 2008 Jason Beghe to Scientology mouthpiece Tommy Davis: 'You're losing your soul' — Village Voice
Scientology defector Jason Beghe on Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis: "You see the eyes, the lying that he's doing. Anybody can see that this guy is not clean. It's clear as day." Last week, John Roberts of CNN grilled Tommy Davis, a Scientology spokesman, who was predictably evasive about what L. Ron Hubbard's wacky minions are up to. 'Disconnection,' the church policy of splitting up families in order to shun critics of the church? Never happens, Davis claimed. And as for that ...

Apr 25, 2008 Targeted Boston Anonymous Member Gregg Interviewed By WGBH Boston — Glosslip
[Video: http://www.youtube.com/v/fQtvHqe-JIY] I have been reluctant to talk further about Gregg of Boston simply because there was so much controversy about his charges, his person and his past. I felt it was best to remain neutral. Part of the issue was related to my being aware that he had some extenuating circumstances in his past and I didn't want to be the one to draw any attention to this, simply because I didn't know the nature of what happened. Now that ...

An Australian on secondment from Sydney, Wenborn persuaded Yong to take a Scientology "stress test", using an electrical device called an "e-meter".
