Oct 28, 2005 Reliable evidence and due process — NZ Lawyer
Lynley Hood finds deep flaws in the Lake Alice settlement. News that the police have found no evidence of criminal offending by psychiatrist Dr Selwyn Leeks, former head of the child and adolescent unit at Lake Alice Hospital, has been greeted with dismay by the psychiatric patient advocacy group, Citizen's Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). "We're not giving up now. We are still working with victims and are still going to be filing criminal complaints," the group's New Zealand executive director, ...

A man who was a patient at Lake Alice in the mid-1970s told The Dominion Post the police decision not to press ...

Sep 3, 2003 Scientology's spiritual contract // Will Scientology celebs sign 'spiritual' contract? — FOX News
Tom Cruise claims to have been dyslexic before he was saved by Scientology. Let's hope that he can read the fine print in a new agreement the religious organization is demanding its members sign. The contract — called the "Agreement and General Release Regarding Spiritual Assistance" — makes it clear that the signee does not believe in psychiatry and does not want to be treated for any kind of psychiatric ailment should one befall him. Instead, once the paper is signed, ...

Jan 19, 2003 Why our children are taking 'kiddy-speed' — Sunday Star-Times
Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise and other critics say the use of the child-calming drug Ritalin is dangerously out of hand. But desperate parents are hailing the medication. Mark Henderson reports. The true cost of fare play CAMERON POU was eight when he first tried to take his life. His horrified mum Linda found him just in time. A few weeks later, the angry youngster tried again. We met Cameron six years ago in a Sunday Star-Times article on behaviour disorders among ...

Critic (University of Otago)
Critic: Are you guys a cult? Mike Ferris, Public Relations Spokesperson, Church of Scientology of NZ: Depends on what you mean by a cult. Every religion in its forming stage was considered to be a cult, pretty much. Critic: You guys aren't in your forming stages though, you've been around for fifty years. You claim to be the only major religion that's emerged out of the twentieth century. So, are you a cult? Ferris: Not in the derogatory sense, no, we ...

The Wittenburg Door
We don't have to tell YOU about L.Ron Hubbard, his book
Dianetics, and the religion it spawned—Scientology. In fact, until just recently, most media outlets WOULDN'T tell you about it given Scientology's well-deserved reputation for litigation. Instead, let us tell you about Tory Bezazian. In 1969 Tory hitchhiked from Chicago to L.A. to become a disciple of Dianetics. She invested untold tens of thousands of hours and dollars in it (the annual price tag for a membership in the International Association ... Jun 7, 2002 Spielberg and Cruise dream team might make 'Minority Report' a winner — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
As part of the multimillion campaigns by which motion pictures are promoted to the public, there's nothing particularly unusual about a major star or director coming to Seattle to schmooze the local press. Indeed, that parade never seems to let up. But an appearance here earlier this week by both Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise – Hollywood's biggest director and star, after all – was a dazzling media event that made the city's movie press forget for a while that there ...

May 9, 2000 Is Scientology above the law? — Illawarra Mercury (Australia)
Illawarra Mercury (Australia)
John Travolta is a staunch supporter. So are many other Hollywood celebrities and it is from them that The Church of Scientology gets its best publicity. Yet while the promotion comes through association with high-profile names, there is rarely a lot actually discussed about the church. That is set to change with this French documentary (narrated in English and featuring subtitles) that examines the relationship between the Church of Scientology and the law in France, Germany and the United States. Incorporating ...
May 5, 2000 Television: Unmasking Scientology — Illawarra Mercury (Australia)
Illawarra Mercury (Australia)
RELIGION in all its forms sparks intense debate but none more so in recent times perhaps than the Church of Scientology. A relatively young religion created by science fiction author Lafayette Ron Hubbard, Scientology's profile has risen sharply with the support of such high-profile acting identities as John Travolta and Juliette Lewis. Yet while most people would have an opinion on the church's ideology, there rarely seems to be much open debate about it in the social arena. That changes next ...

Imagine, if you will, a public forum where anybody can stand on a soapbox and speak, and everyone can listen to any of the speakers they choose. What you're imagining is, more or less, Usenet. Usenet is an enormous collection of publicly accessible fora where you can post and read messages about more or less everything anyone talks about. Some postings are brilliant, some are less brilliant, some are inane, some are utterly unfathomable. But everyone with Internet access can have ...
