Eye TV // Cult cornered (again) — Private Eye (UK)
Type: Press
Source: Private Eye (UK)
"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 ...

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 ...

Author(s): Nick Xenophon
Source: The Punch (Australia)
Believe it or not, Senate Inquiries can generate all sorts of humorous exchanges. A hearing earlier this week into the Tax Laws Amendment (Public Benefit Test) Bill generated so much laughter at one point, you could be forgiven for thinking you were watching ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ instead. It went something like this. When discussing the impact of the introduction of a Charities Commission in New Zealand, the Church of Scientology’s New Zealand Secretary, Michael Ferriss, explained that the organisation’s ...

'Taxpayers shouldn't fund abuse': ex-Scientologists — The Age (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Kirsty Needham
Source: The Age (Australia)
FORMER members of the Church of Scientology have told a Senate committee of the "ruthlessness" of the church and its judicial system, and argued it should not be eligible for tax-free status. "Australian taxpayers should not be funding systematic, organised abuse," said Janette Vonthehoff, who claimed her passport was taken from her and she was forcibly prevented from returning to Australia from the United States when she was eight weeks pregnant, because the church ordered she must finish "training". Sydney tax ...
