Publisher stays mum on author's founding of Scientology — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: Village Voice
Once again, the publisher charged with distributing the fiction works of L. Ron Hubbard has gone out of its way to ignore Hubbard’s signature accomplishment: the founding of the Church of Scientology. In a release and accompanying promotional video touting a live-action performance of one of Hubbard’s fiction works, Galaxy Press, which sells Hubbard’s fiction under the Golden Age Stories moniker, goes to great lengths to hype Hubbard’s work with the United States Navy and his resume as an explorer. But ...

Queens Anonymous Member Gets a Letter from Scientologists — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: Village Voice
[Picture / Caption: That's Mike Vitale. Guess the costume didn't work too well.] When Queens resident Mike Vitale was outed as a member of Anonymous by the Church of Scientology last month, he specifically asked Church members if they planned to prove his criticisms correct by declaring him “fair game” and subjecting him to the threats and intimidation that are said to be inherent in that Church policy. Would they threaten him or show up at his house? Well, they did—or, ...

Scientology Front Group Responds... — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
In response to this, Religious Freedom Watch (RFW), universally regarded as a front group for the Church of Scientology, has posted a rundown (pun intended) of the supposed crimes against journalism that I committed in the writing of my piece on the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Program. "Methinks you doth protest too much DeSio. Or do you find Touretzky’s racist comments so normal, and your defense of his bigoted statements so necessary to support your own deep hatred, ...

Scientology Front Group Misrepresents NYPress, Touretzky — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
Religious Freedom Watch (RFW) has just put up an item on its website charging that in my New York Detox piece Scientology critic Dave Touretzky (left) could not defend himself from charges that he is a racist, but simply stated that the charges are untrue because they cannot be found via a Lexis-Nexis search. The RFW item can be found here. RFW is almost universally regarded as a front group for the Church of Scientology and devotes a considerable amount of ...

Vallone's Letter To Scientology — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
Here's a little source material for you all regarding my piece on the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project. In it, I mention a particularly strongly worded letter sent by Queens City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. to Rev. John Carmichael, president of the New York branch of the Church of Scientology. The letter was sent to Carmichael in response to Vallone's strong words about Scientology, which can be found here and here. Carmichael requested a meeting with Vallone, but that ain't ...

Follow the leader: Sticks and stones — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
Apparently, I’m a hate-filled bigot. That would have to be the conclusion you would draw if you follow the dealings of the Church of Scientology, particularly the organization known as Religious Freedom Watch (RFW), which is almost universally recognized as a Scientology front group. In response to last week’s cover story on the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project, the controversial alternative health clinic based on the writings of Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, RFW has bared its teeth. Evidently lacking ...

The Rundown on Scientology's Purification Rundown — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
“I'm not here converting these men and women to Scientology. And I've got to tell you something—I've been a Scientologist 20 years. In Sacramento I, more than any other Scientologist, got new people into Scientology, me personally. I'm very good at converting people, if I want to.” Jim Woodworth is the director of the New York Rescue Workers' Detoxification Project, and he is bristling at the suggestion that his program is an arm of the Church of Scientology. He insists that ...

The Angry Scientologist Retort — New York Press
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: New York Press
As could be expected, Scientologists are none too happy with Mayor Mike Bloomberg and City Councilman Peter Vallone for questioning the scientific validity of their "sweat and vitamins" detox project for 9/11 rescue workers. And at least one California-based follower of the ways of L. Ron hubbard is speaking out, sending an open letter to a variety of elected officials, newspapers and others praising the scientific validity of the New York Rescue Workers Detox Project. The full letter is after the ...
