The man who committed mass murder two years ago at Standard Gravure has become the centerpiece of a nationwide campaign to discredit and ban Prozac, the world's leading drug for treating depression. Joseph Wesbecker had taken Prozac during the five weeks before his shooting rampage inside the Louisville printing plant, and blood tests after his death found therapeutic levels of Prozac. Those test results have prompted a California group affiliated with the Church of Scientology to launch a high-profile, well-financed assault ...

The director of public affairs for the Church of Scientology in Western Canada denied yesterday it misled about 60 Winnipeg teenagers, hired to raise funds for a drug rehabilitation program linked to the church.

[...] Wakefield now repudiates the agreement, claiming she was pressured into signing it, and aggressively seeks forums — in the press, on radio shows, in churches — to denounce Scientology. "I don't care what the legal repercussions are at this point," she told the Tribune recently. "I want people in this area to know what Scientology is about. I want them to know it's a satanic cult."

St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
The Church of Scientology lost a bid Thursday in a British court to ban a biography of its founder, the late science fiction author L. Ron Hubbard.

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?
