Does John Travolta's Battlefield Earth contain subliminal messages recruiting Scientologists? Amid a flurry of bizarre claims and counterclaims, only one thing is certain: it is one of the worst movies ever made. Duncan Campbell reports It is the year 3000 and "man-animals" are scrabbling for survival in the lonely expanse of what the mighty Psychlos describe as "this pitiful excuse for a planet". It is also the year 2000 and a mere seven man-animals are scrabbling for their popcorn in the ...

Surrounded by a handful of trusted aides, he handed over the running of his ...

The Church of Scientology International has settled a long-standing legal battle to repossess about 2,000 unpublished and copyrighted documents and keep them from being accessed by computer users in the future. Under a settlement reached in a U.S. district court earlier this month, a Colorado-based nonprofit group called FACTNet is permanently enjoined to pay the church $1 million if FACTNet is found guilty of future violations of church copyrights. FACTNet, started by former Scientologist Lawrence Wollersheim, also promised to return all ...

After more than seventeen years of litigation, Lawrence Wollersheim knows that talk isn't cheap–not when you're talking to lawyers and your life's work happens to involve badmouthing the Church of Scientology. But the price of silence is even higher. Too high, in Wollersheim's estimation, which is why he says he walked away from an alleged settlement offer by the church that would have netted him and a few colleagues $12 million in exchange for abandoning their crusade against Scientology. Wollersheim is ...
