Readers object to story's reference to 'confession' — Clearwater Sun (Florida)

Type: Press
Author(s): Bob Driver
Source: Clearwater Sun (Florida)
The ink had hardly cooled on my "ombudsman" title Monday when I received phone calls in quick succession from two persons who objected to a reference in a Sunday (June 24) story about Scientology. In the story, staff writer George-Wayne Shelor wrote that the Scientology procedure known as auditing is "somewhat similar to Catholic confession." My two callers took exception to that. One pointed out that Roman Catholic confession makes no use of electronic devices such as Scientology's "E-meter." The other ...

Letters to the Editor // Slamming Scientology — Clearwater Sun (Florida)
More: link
Type: Press
Source: Clearwater Sun (Florida)
Editor: You have received letters from persons identifying themselves as Scientologists by stating so or by the content of the letters. The Scientologists would have us believe that they offer courses designed to improve their students' thinking processes and self-images. Apparently they try to do this as well as expand intellectual horizons and establish positive thinking. They also claim to be a "church," but do not seem to publicize exactly what their practice does. Their letters to you are in reaction ...

The cash cults move from beyond the fringe — The Bulletin (Australia)

Author(s): Bruce Stannard

As the Christian world celebrates Easter more off-beat religions are enjoying a boom. In Sydney BRUCE STANNARD studies the now-legal Scientologists and in the US LAURENCE GRAFSTEIN profiles Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and other odd-balls. MOST minds are the slaves of external circumstances and conform to any hand that undertakes to mould them. - Samuel Johnson ''IN ALL the broad universe, there is no other hope for Man than ourselves. This is a tremendous responsibility. I have borne it myself too long ...

Religion: When fervour leads a faithful flock astray — Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Alan Gill

If Moses did not receive the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai, but only said he did, Judaism would still constitute a valid religion. This hypothetical argument was put to the High Court in the recently concluded Scientology case. Mr D. Bennett, QC, representing the Church of Scientology, said that a movement's claim to be accepted as a religion did not depend on the sincerity or honesty of its founder or leaders - what counted was the attitude of the members. The ...

Scientology recognised as religion by High Court // The question is 'What is religion?' — Australian Financial Review
Type: Press
Author(s): David Solomon
Source: Australian Financial Review
Scientology is a religious institution and exempt from State payroll tax, the High Court ruled unanimously yesterday. It was the first time that the court came head on with the question "What is religion?". All the judges rejected the view that belief in a supreme being was essential to religion. Justices Mason and Brennan, in a joint judgment, stressed the importance of the case in determining fundamental questions of religious freedom in Australia and the extent to which an individual is ...

Scientology wins status of church in High Court — The Australian
Type: Press
Author(s): Carol Simmonds
Source: The Australian
THE High Court yesterday decided to end God's exclusive reign over the nation's religious affairs, opening the way for many non-mainstream religions to claim the legal status of a church and all the financial and other privileges that go with that status. In a landmark decision handed down in Perth, the Full Court unanimously rejected a narrow definition of religion and moved towards the American judicial view under which Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture and Secular Humanism have been held to be ...
