Eye TV // Cultists cornered — Private Eye (UK)
Type: Press
Source: Private Eye (UK)
DESPITE bombarding the BBC with letters in the weeks before transmission of John Sweeney's recent Panorama Special on Scientology, the lawyers for the self-styled "church" — the inevitable Messrs Carter-Fuck — have been strangely silent since it was broadcast. Ditto Phil Hall, the former Screws editor who now earns an honest crust as the Scientologists' PR man. The cult's followers, however, have been tirelessly hyperactive as ever. Zabrina Collins, an "ethics officer", emailed fellow Scientologists urging them to join a "counter ...

"YOU suck cock on Hollywood Boulevard." This is the word of the Church of Scientology, according to its former spokesman Mike Rinder, spilling the beans in John Sweeney’s BBC film this week. He was citing a text message from the office of the leader, David Miscavige, best man at Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes. It was one of many bizarre obscenities quoted by Rinder who, after half a century inside the church, now says that it is a cult. ‘It ...

Scientology receives local rates relief on properties — BBC News
Type: Press
Author(s): John Sweeney
Source: BBC News
The Church of Scientology has received millions of pounds of business rates relief and tax breaks in Britain. The controversial organisation, which counts Hollywood celebrities among its high-profile members, boasts of having over 11 million square feet in property worldwide, but some ex-members call it a cult. The Church is not classed as a religion under Charity Law by the UK Charity Commission. In 1999, the Commission ruled that it did not pass the "public benefit" test required for advancing religion ...

The Senate lends Scientology a helping hand — Crikey (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Bernard Keane
Source: Crikey (Australia)
Last week, the Senate Privileges Committee permitted the Church of Scientology to respond in Hansard to issues raised by Senator Nick Xenophon in November last year. The Scientologists promptly issued a press release declaring they had responded to Xenophon “in Parliament”, as if they had some sort of elected status. In allowing the Scientologist response into Hansard, the Privileges Committee has allowed itself to be made party to an attack on individuals who were brave enough to raise their treatment at ...
