All the French parts are translated into English, but not all of the English parts are translated into French.) Scientology is recognized as a religion, for income tax purposes, in the U.S., but not in France. In France and Germany it is generally considered a cult. While church members had already been convicted of fraud in France, last year ...

Scientology displayed [Re: Scientology on display, News, April 23] The only thing more disturbing than the Church of Scientologys presence in the atrium of the Concordia library last week is the university administrations laissez-faire attitude about the indiscriminate rental of its common spaces. Its completely inappropriate that Concordia spokesperson Christine Mota encourages members of the university community to get a grip and chill while access to our library is given over to anyone who can afford the price.

A display on the mezzanine of one of Concordia University’s downtown buildings turned heads last week for proclaiming that the profession of psychiatry is an “industry of death.” Students who walked into the Library building on de Maisonneuve Blvd. two weeks ago were faced with a large exhibit, decorated to resemble a filthy asylum, with various displays on the historical evils of psychiatry and the quackery practiced by its disciples. What is not immediately apparent is that the display was organized ...

Re: "Scientologists didn't deserve a soapbox" (Letters, April 22). Norman Ingram suggests that so called "crackpot" groups like the Scientologists should not be accorded publicly funded space like Concordia's atrium. But that is precisely what universities have a mission and an obligation to provide. Academic freedom and free speech have no point if offensive speech and crackpot ideas have no public forum. Every single university discipline has some ideas or promotes practices that will offend some portion of our population. Every ...

What do declining educational standards, Nazism, the Columbine shootings, 9/11 and the death of Kurt Cobain have in common? If you passed through the hall of Concordia’s McConnell library building last week, you might think they’re all caused by the pernicious influence of psychiatry. Organized by the innocuous-sounding Citizens’ Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), “Psychology: Industry of Death” is a travelling exhibit that spent four days in the open hall of the university library, arousing curiosity, controversy and at least one ...

Re: "Scientologists have a right to speak, too" (Editorial, April 19). Your editorial's plaintive title betrays a fundamental misapprehension of the issues involved. No one denies the right of Scientologists to say whatever they want, however wrong and untrue it might be. What some people are concerned about, however, is the fact that they are being given a publicly-funded, intellectual soapbox - the Atrium of Concordia University's library building - from which to make their crackpot claims. That is the issue. ...

It's a name apparently designed to win friends and influence people. After all, what part of "the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights" can you be against? In truth, however, this noble-sounding group has a specific agenda that is much more controversial than citizenry, human rights, or any solemn commission. All the same, Concordia University has done exactly the right thing in allowing this group to express itself on campus. The CCHR is affiliated with the Church of Scientology, an organization with ...

Re: "Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination?" (Gazette, Aug. 16). Because of the outrageous allegations in this story about the Church of Scientology I feel the need to respond. First of all, we don't know the name or whereabouts of the so-called "anonymiss," nor have we tried to find out. Her claims are ludicrous and, to be charitable, the product of her wild imagination. However, the campaign she and her "anonymous" comrades are involved in is, by their own ...

Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination? — Montreal Gazette
Type: Press

Anonymous is the name of a new worldwide group that communicates mostly online and protests against the Church of Scientology. Critics say the church, founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, uses secretive practices, makes cult-like demands, extorts money from its members and harasses those who claim to expose the truth about it. Which explains the anonymity central to the anti-Scientology group. In February, anti-Scientology activists in Montreal joined others around the world in the organization's first simultaneous masked protest, ...

La scientologie est une entreprise ultramoderne qui a aussi des activités séculières. Par exemple, en 1966, Ron Hubbard fondait avec un collègue Narconon une cure de désintoxication qui compte aujourd'hui plus d'une centaine de centres dans le monde, dont un à Trois-Rivières. En plus d'être une cure de désintoxication, Narconon s'est donné pour mission d'instruire les jeunes sur les méfaits de la drogue en donnant des conférences dans de nombreuses écoles de la province. L'atelier offert dans les écoles, appelé La ...

Your May 31 edition referred to a suit involving the Church of Scientology and a couple of former parishioners. Contrary to the article, the church has and applies a refund policy on contributions from its members. The Church of Scientology finances its activities from its parishioners with fixed contributions paid for specific services. The church and its lawyers have taken the position that such religious services do not fall under the purview of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act as the contrary ...

A Montreal stockbroker who claims he was brainwashed last year by members of the Church of Scientology testified yesterday that he paid $12,000 to the sect for personality courses. Gilles Lanthier, 28, told Sessions Court Judge Benjamin Schecter that he began having doubts about the sect when he was told to abandon his wife and seek further Scientology instruction in Toronto. He said that his personality courses were to cost $22,000, but a church member told him he had been ...

The owner of a Rosemount nursery says he won't allow Church of Scientology members to perform any more plays for the nursery's 30 children.

The Scientologists wanted to give the children an encore performance next week, but nursery owner Uri Ravel has quashed the plan: "I don't want any preaching in ...

Few inmates become reformed at St. Vincent de Paul Penitentiary because prison rehabilitation programs are negligible, a Toronto prison worker said yesterday. Phil McAiney, director of the rehabilitation program Narconon, spent two days recently at the Special Correction Unit of the maximum security institution. He classified relations between the staff and inmates as "open warfare where hatred and fear are the weapons". And he charged that rehabilitation programs consist only of baseball and a weekly visit by the prison psychiatrist. "The ...
