L'église de Scientologie n'aime guère les journalistes, pas plus que la critique, et donne rarement des entrevues. Les responsables ont d'ailleurs refusé les deux demandes que nous avons faites, aux États-Unis et au Québec. Le pouvoir absolu du grand leader David Miscavidge, (qui a succédé à Ron Hubbard après son décès) suscite de la grogne. De nombreux hauts dirigeants ont quitté le mouvement. Ils dénoncent le climat de violence qui y règne depuis l'arrivée de Miscavidge. Une équipe de JE s'est ...

On August 19, 2009, Tommy Davis, the chief spokesperson for the Church of Scientology International, received a letter from the film director and screenwriter Paul Haggis. “For ten months now I have been writing to ask you to make a public statement denouncing the actions of the Church of Scientology of San Diego,” Haggis wrote.

Scientology cult targets Haiti for slave labor
Type: Press
The Scientology organization has increasingly targeted poor countries such as Haiti in its recruitment efforts. Why would this money-hungry crime-cult be interested in one of the world’s poorest countries? The answer: Because they want to bring Haitians in to the USA on "religious worker" visas to serve as unpaid laborers. Quoting at length from Scientology-affiliated newspaper the Tampa Bay Informer: Haiti, with its 75% unemployment rate, $15-$20.00 average income per week, 70% illiteracy, 10,000+ homeless in the capital and thousands ...
