When allegations emerged that shonky insulation installers operating under the Federal Government's home insulation program had exposed householders to the risk of fires and workers to injury or death, the Liberal and National Parties promptly referred the matter to a Senate inquiry. And when trade unions claimed that Australia Post was cutting its workers compensation costs by using company doctors to force injured employees back to work prematurely, the Labor Party was more than willing to ask a Senate committee to ...

Senator Nick Xenophon's stunning attack on the Church of Scientology this week has shone a light on a worldwide group many former members accuse of ruining their lives through fear and abuse. SCIENTOLOGISTS lured Dean Detheridge off the street using their tried and tested technique of offering a personality test. He wasn't much interested, but they were extremely skilled and persistent persuaders, and he found he couldn't say no. Seven days later he was on staff in what turned out to ...

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has concerns about Scientology but says the government will exercise caution in examining allegations of abuse levelled against the church.

Dissent and scientology are mutually exclusive apparently [comments section is especially informative] — Blorbis
Type: Blog
Source: Blorbis
After publishing this article, supporters of the Church of Scientology sent correspondence to Orbis complaining about what they perceived to be a bias in favor of Anonymous. The fact that they apparently keep such close tabs on media about scientology (Vanderbilt Orbis, after all, isn’t as well-known or as well-distributed as the New York Times) doesn’t do much to further their case that they don’t take… aggressive measures… to silence their critics. In the meantime, the Nashville scientologists have apparently decided ...

This documentary was produced to demonstrate what I believed to be a clear bias against the LMT by members of the Clearwater Police Force who were on Scientology's payroll. Scientology snuck into Clearwater, Florida in 1978 under the assumed name of United Churches. Since then they have come to dominate the small town. I lived in Clearwater for two years, working with a group which was helping people defrauded and abused by Scientology. During this time, police officers started to accept ...
