Religion and taxes Series: Editorials — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press

Is the Internal Revenue Service out of order in trying to revoke the tax-exempt status of Jim Bakker's PTL ministries for three years? Is this IRS effort part of a campaign that picks on religious operations? Or is it a federal government agency doing its job, objectively challenging the outrageous spending practices of an organization set up for religious and charitable purposes? Anytime the IRS moves, the danger of abuse exists. Short of death or some uncertain judgment day, the IRS ...

The 'extended sting operation' of Scientology — The Listener
Type: Press
Author(s): John Penycate
Source: The Listener
Panorama's investigation into the Scientologists revealed an organisation which uses its founder's 'mixture of half-practical, half-gobbledegook psychological techniques' to draw large sums of money from its adherents, with threatening consequences if they opt out. Religious cults are a problem. They enslave the minds and empty the pockets of gullible young people, causing heartfelt grief to their families. The Moonies, the Children of God and the other cults have a poor public image, but they almost always operate within the law. The ...

The organization contends the bond payment will drive it into bankruptcy. Without comment, the high court rejected the Scientology case, which sought to void state law requiring the church to post bond while it appeals a $30 million damages award to former Scientologist Larry Wollersheim, who claimed the church ...

A mystery / Hubbard's purple prose is still selling volumes — Seattle Times
Type: Press
Author(s): Frank Catalano
Source: Seattle Times
The writings of L. Ron Hubbard are a mystery. Not the writings on Dianetics and Scientology, topics on which the late Hubbard wrote dozens of books and manuals. No, the mystery is Hubbard’s science-fiction writing — specifically, why it’s selling so well. Before his death last year, Hubbard celebrated his 50 years in writing by producing “Battlefield Earth,” an 800-page tome that critics suggested was a better doorstop than book. That was followed, because of what Hubbard called “enthusiastic response,” by ...

The cruise ship Boheme has received an engine overhaul since being purchased by a group of Scientologists, and the vessel soon will get a stem-to-stern refurbishing at a cost of more than $1-million.

But the vessel was purchased this past September by the International Association of Scientologists for use as a sailing ...
