Scientologists use various means of indoctrinating their members. I have long suspected that boredom and confusion are two of their tools. That belief got a boost Tuesday night as I drove to Tampa. As I traveled east on Ulmerton Road and across the Frankenstein Bridge, I listened to a tape cassette recently mailed to me (and several hundred other people in Upper Pinellas County) by the Scientologists. In a Wednesday story, Sun staff writer Lesley Collins ably described the tape's contents. ...

CLEARWATER — The "favorable" reaction from a Church of Scientology goodwill message via a cassette tape may spark additional tape mailings. The Clearwater-based group mailed about 300 cassette tapes titled "Can We Ever Be Friends?" this week to local city officials, newspapers and randomly selected residents. "We've gotten calls as to why people haven't received them," Scientology spokesman Ludwig Alpers said Tuesday. Because of the positive response, "there might be more going out," he said. A small group of Scientologists recently ...

CLEARWATER — A federal appeals court ruling doesn't say a word about the constitutionality of a city ordinance regulating charitable solicitations, basically sending it back to a lower court. The opinion issued Wednesday by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals states there hasn't been enough legal record developed by the U.S. District Court in Tampa to warrant a decision on the law's constitutional merits. "It's an interesting opinion because it doesn't decide anything," Scientology attorney Eric Lieberman said Thursday. "Basically ...

The recent anti-Internal Revenue Service forum sponsored by the Church of Scientology may turn out to be a boon to the taxpaying public. While we hold no brief for the Scientologists or their doctrines, we feel it is only fair to spotlight their contributions to the public good. And, although their motives are questionable (the Scientologists have suffered at the hands of the IRS and have a policy of getting even with attackers), they have certainly done the American public a ...

The Church of Scientology in Los Angeles is angry because a judge allowed outsiders to read about some of the remarkable lore that the Scientologists supposedly believe in. An Associated Press report says the church teaches that 75 million years ago Earth was called Teegeeach. It was one of 90 planets ruled by Xemu, who was not a nice guy. He set off thermonuclear bombs to reduce the population, and implanted the seeds of aberrant behavior in the spirits of certain ...

Xemu, attempting to solve overpopulation problems, destroyed selected inhabitants of the planets and implanted the seeds of aberrant behavior in their spirits to affect future generations of mankind, according to the documents briefly placed ...

CLEARWATER — In its ongoing battle against the Internal Revenue Service, the Church of Scientology Monday hosted a public forum featuring a presentation from the National Coalition of IRS Whistleblowers and former U.S. Congressman George Hansen. In January, Hansen, an Idaho Republican and a longtime critic of the IRS, joined the sect in charging that the IRS routinely singles out people for investigation because of their religious and political affiliations. At that time, Hansen said, "It is shocking to any thinking ...

On Scientology Editor: There appears to be a parallel between Arthur Krowitz's defense of Scientology (May 28 issue of Clearwater Sun) and military mentality: "The best means of defense is a direct attack." A raw, crude, offensive approach in support of "religious practice" is hardly the spiritual approach as most of us understand it. Students of Scientology who flood Clearwater from all corners of the United States, the continent, etc., are often eager to share their experience with anyone who will ...

"Major disasters in which hundreds of people are killed don't get $39 million judgments," Carmichael said. In Clearwater, Scientology midday followers gathered ...
