Hearings 'an audit' of sect's founder — Clearwater Sun (Florida)
More: link
Type: Press
Author(s): Bill Prescott
Source: Clearwater Sun (Florida)
This week's public hearings on the Church of Scientology is just a case of sect founder L. Ron Hubbard getting a dose of his own medicine, according to one interested spectator. "This is an auditing session," said George Kelly, who has attended all three days of the hearings. "This is L. Ron Hubbard's auditing session and Michael Flynn is the auditor." Kelly, a 34-year-old Canadian and ex-Scientologist, based his analysis on his 14-year study of the Church of Scientology and his ...

CLEARWATER — He hates exercise but loves to watch football games on television and to tinker with a 1971 Volkswagen. He "consumes" literature to the point of leading the labels on Campbell soup cans, is practicing Episcopalian, chain smokes and answers to the nickname Nibs. He watched his father try to perform an abortion on his mother. He practiced black magic, spoke in the jargon of Scientology until he was 25 years old and used to be known as "the great ...

CLEARWATER — Six more witnesses denounced the Church of Scientology and its practices Friday during public hearings on the organization. For the third straight day, the critical testimony was a mixture of information concerning Scientology's Clearwater operations and church activities elsewhere. City commissioners, who are having the hearings, heard from: * Casey Kelly, 23, who joined Scientology to crusade against "war," "crime" and "insanity" but later became disenchanted with long hours and low pay as a church employee here. * Rosie ...

Teen-ager David Ray testified Friday he had a spectacular start with the Church of Scientology in California, but quickly became a rebel trapped in The Fort Harrison Hotel, relegated to cleaning rooms and stomping garbage. Casey Kelly, 23, testifying for the second day, said he "wasn't a very good Scientologist," either. "One thing you don't do in Scientology is joke around, so obviously I didn't make out very well," he quipped. Like one other witness called in the third day of ...

CLEARWATER — Life at the Church of Scientology's Fort Harrison Hotel was so miserable, Lori Taverna remembered Thursday, that "I felt that I was in . . . an insane asylum." Casey Kelly recalled being distressed by the hard work and low pay. "Here I was, working 70 to 80 hours a week, and I was making $20," Kelly said. "This did not jive." Eventually both Kelly, 23, and Ms. Taverna, 39, quit Scientology. Thursday they testified before Clearwater city commissioners ...

A 17-year veteran of the Church of Scientology told Clearwater city commissioners Thursday she lived through "horror" while staying at the former Fort Harrison Hotel three years ago. Lori Taverna, who said she broke with the sect two months ago, was asked by Mayor Charles LeCher to describe a "normal day" while she worked as a Scientology trainer. "Most of it was horror, so I don't know," said Mrs. Taverna, 39. But in about three hours of testimony during the second ...

CLEARWATER — L. Ron Hubbard Jr., now known as Ron DeWolf, and Paulette Cooper agree on at least two things. Each says Scientology is a fraud. Each says the other is untrustworthy and out to make a buck from criticizing Scientology. "He's such a liar," Ms. Cooper said of DeWolf. Later she referred to DeWolf's father, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and added, "He's a chip off the old block." DeWolf said he holds a similar view of Ms. Cooper. HE ...

The son of L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of scientology, testified Wednesday his father was obsessed with controlling people and "destroyed" those who opposed him and the church. "My father only knew how to do one thing; that was destroy them," said L. Ronald Hubbard Jr., who has changed his name to Ronald Edward DeWolf. DeWolf contended also the elder Hubbard, fabricated most of the personal qualifications and scientific expertise he claimed when forming the sect. "I can say ...

But he came to Clearwater City Hall Wednesday with the Holy Bible and an American flag almost as big as Richard Tenney, the ex-city commissioner who led many of the anti-Scientology rallies, to show his opposition to the Clearwater-based organization.

CLEARWATER —The city of Clearwater has assigned police protection to Michael J. Flynn, the man who is leading the city's charge against the Church of Scientology. The church ridiculed the move as a "publicity stunt." Plainclothes Clearwater police officers are guarding Flynn, a Boston lawyer who is the city's $80,000 consultant for public hearings on church activities that begin Wednesday and are scheduled to continue through May 15. City Manager Tony Shoemaker said he ordered around-the-clock protection as a precaution, and ...

CLEARWATER — After six and a half years of uneasy, often hostile coexistence, the city of Clearwater this week embarks on its first formal confrontation with the Church of Scientology. In a series of hearings beginning Wednesday, the City Commission will conduct a public investigation of the controversial group. The architect of the hearings — a brash Boston lawyer named Michael J. Flynn — says the proceedings will "demonstrate the fraudulent, commercial and criminal activities" of Scientology. Church officials derisively predict ...

As the woman they called "Lee" spoke from the church pulpit, the crowd, estimated at 1,000 was deathly quiet, hanging on every word. For most, it was the first time they had heard about the alleged goings-on within the Church of Scientology. They listened, somewhat in awe, as the 34-year-old Wisconsin woman recounted methodically her 12 years in the church. Then, as she spoke more passionately about the past two years, they heard of her emotional and physical struggle to break ...

Now and then we discover someone who performs a deed or a service exactly as promised. Although this seldom the case, it is even more unusual to see a politician actually perform a campaign promise. In retrospect, I can't remember many who have actually performed the promise to the degree that a reasonable person could fairly recognize the completed performance. Recently, however, I have taken note of a fulfilled campaign promise by a local Clearwater commissioner. However, I can tell you ...

At the Fort Harrison Hotel in downtown Clearwater, Scientologists are learning to leave their bodies, control other people's thoughts and communicate with plant life. They learn this by reliving a galactic holocaust carried out by space creatures millions of years ago. So say top-secret Scientology documents spelling out the highest level of training available to church members. It is training that costs thousands of dollars and, according to church defectors who provided the documents, amounts to nothing but a swindle dreamed ...
