Tom Cruise is clearly bonkers — Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Brendan Shanahan
Source: Daily Telegraph (Australia)
THE new Andrew Morton biography of Tom Cruise has it wrong: Tom is definitely not gay. He is, however, quite bonkers and whatever it is that's driving him is clearly much weirder than being merely gay. I'm thinking something along the lines of that episode of The Simpsons in which Selma marries Troy McClure only to discover that he has a fish fetish. To paraphrase a quote: Gay? I wish! Yes, Tom Cruise is strange. Stranger still, however, is the fact ...

Author(s): Barney Zwartz

IN A decision anxiously awaited by thousands of churches and charities around Australia, the full bench of the Federal Court has ruled that businesses they run to fund their charities need not pay tax. The ruling means that charities may seek millions of dollars back from the Australian Taxation Office and may venture into new businesses, according to tax experts. Tax lawyer Duncan Baxter said the outcome, delivered on Wednesday, was doubly helpful for charities, because they won the case and ...

Ron Hubbard. One outraged parent who did not wish to be named said she had explicitly told the school her children were not ...

The Australian can reveal that when the hospital sought an order to continue that treatment in the community, the visiting magistrate refused to grant this. The reasons ...

IT was Hollywood, so it was bound to follow the script. Two minutes after walking through the ornate gates of the world famous Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre, an exquisitely renovated 1920s chateau-style, former hotel overlooking Los Angeles, I came face-to-face with my first Scientologist. He was impressive, tall, broad-shouldered and impeccably groomed with a set of blindingly white teeth. He looked like an actor who'd play a secret service agent.

Inside a mad-made religion — The Australian

Author(s): Hedley Thomas

BY his own admission, Lafayette Ron Hubbard, whose impenetrably obscure writings about thetans would evolve over a half-century into the multi-billon-dollar celebrity-speckled commercial business known as the Church of Scientology, was mad. "There is an interview I have where they ask Ron Hubbard, 'Are you mad?', and he says: 'Yes, I am,"' says Raphael Aron, director of Australia's Cult Counselling Centre. "He saw his madness as a quality and as thinking outside the square." In 1999, when Aron wrote Cults: Too ...

SCIENTOLOGISTS have been bombarding NSW MPs with letters urging them not to make psychiatric drugs more available as part of an orchestrated campaign to stamp out their use. But not one of more than 120 letters obtained by the Daily Telegraph identifies the author as a Scientologist despite many coming from its inner-west offices. The move has raised serious concerns about religious groups or cults lobbying governments and politicians for a change in the law without identifying their links. The practice ...

THE Church of Scientology was labelled "flat-earthers" yesterday as it defended its controversial stance on mental health. A psychiatric report tendered to Bankstown Local Court on Monday revealed a 25-year-old woman accused of killing her sister and father and seriously injuring her mother had been denied access to drugs because of her family's Scientology views. Australian Church of Scientology vice-president Cyrus Brooks described the organisation's link to the killings as a "red herring". "The woman was actually under the drugs, she ...
