Welcome wagon: The Church of Scientology moves into Ybor City — Creative Loafing (Tampa, Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Mitch Perry
Source: Creative Loafing (Tampa, Florida)
Three days after more than 2,000 Scientologists crowded into the historic Ybor Square courtyard to celebrate the opening of the Church of Scientology Tampa's new home — a landmark 88,000-square-foot former cigar factory in Ybor City — Creative Loafing editor David Warner and I found ourselves in a COS conference room facing several of the Church's top-ranking public relations officials. They were decidedly not happy with a blog post I'd written that quoted a handful of protesters from the group Anonymous ...

Author(s): Lawrence Wright

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. Before the 2008 elections, a staff member at Scientology’s San Diego church had signed its name to an online petition supporting Proposition 8, which asserted that ...

Tough time for Scientologists: A Story in The New Yorker and a lawsuit in Portland — Willamette Week
Type: Press
Author(s): James Pitkin
Source: Willamette Week
It's shaping up to be a tough month both in Portland and nationwide for the Church of Scientology. On a national level, a takedown published this week in The New Yorker can't be good for the religion founded by sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard. And locally, Scientologists face a lawsuit filed Feb. 4 by a woman claiming exposure to toxic fumes in a downtown Portland building owned by the Church. The suit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court claims Teresa Barney ...

PASADENA, Calif. — The opening of a Scientology center in this city’s Old Town neighborhood was a significant local event. Church members spent $10 million to buy a historic four-story building and $6 million more to restore it to its 1906 luster before a gala dedication ceremony on July 18. But the Pasadena project is just one part of a much larger undertaking for the church: the creation of about 50 new centers in 16 countries. The global real estate firm ...

It's time to end the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status — Huffington Post
Type: Press
Author(s): Steven Hassan
Source: Huffington Post
For more than 25 years, the IRS denied tax-exemption to the Church of Scientology. The long-running policy flowed from an IRS determination in 1967 that Scientology was in fact a commercial entity operated solely for the benefit of founder L. Ron Hubbard. In 1993, seven years after Hubbard's death, the IRS made a puzzling and highly suspicious reversal. It settled its tax bill with Scientology for just $12.5 million and conferred on it the title of tax-exempt "religion." Both the Wall ...

Tom Cruise and his Scientology buddies must be upset this morning. They’ve lost their political supporter in New York City. Disgraced state senator Hiram Monserrate lost a special election yesterday to Queens Assemblyman Jose Peralta. Monserrate was kicked out of the State Senate after being convicted on misdemeanor charges for slashing his girlfriend’s face with a glass. As a city councilman in 2007, Monserrate drew criticism for creating an L. Ron Hubbard Day in honor of the science-fiction writer who invented ...

Alleged abuses in Scientology are far from unique — Huffington Post

Author(s): Clay Farris Naff

Scientology. The name is a travesty of science. The reality is a burlesque of religion. Following the lead of the Saint Petersburg Times, where my late friend Steve Marquez once reported on the same church, the New York Times recently published tales of abuse told by Scientology "defectors." The term seems apt, since the harsh treatment former insiders describe brings to mind totalitarian states like North Korea. Beatings, fleecings, and exploitation of teen labor - these are just some of the ...

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Raised as Scientologists, Christie King Collbran and her husband, Chris, were recruited as teenagers to work for the elite corps of staff members who keep the Church of Scientology running, known as the Sea Organization, or Sea Org. They signed a contract for a billion years — in keeping with the church’s belief that Scientologists are immortal. They worked seven days a week, often on little sleep, for sporadic paychecks of $50 a week, at most. But after ...

Over the last several months, The St. Petersburg Times published a series of scathing articles on the Church of Scientology under the rubric “The Truth Rundown.” In 1980, the newspaper won a Pulitzer Prize for an investigation of the church’s inner workings. Coverage of Scientology has long been an important story for The St. Petersburg Times, given that the church’s spiritual headquarters is located in nearby Clearwater, Fla.

For all the rumors that swirl around the Church of Scientology — the accusations that it is a cult, the hints about its supernatural teachings, the means by which it attracts so many celebrities — its center on West 46th Street, tucked between the soignée Paramount Hotel and the workaday Edison, is a rather straightforward presence. The building looks more like a modern corporate headquarters than a religious outpost, with shiny black granite and a display of the founder’s books. A ...

PARIS (AP) — A Paris court convicted the Church of Scientology of fraud and fined it more than euro600,000 ($900,000) on Tuesday, but stopped short of banning the group's activities. The group's French branch said it would appeal the verdict. The court convicted the Church of Scientology's French office, its library and six of its leaders of organized fraud. Investigators said the group pressured members into paying large sums of money for questionable financial gain and used "commercial harassment" against recruits. ...

And now the Church is under attack again. Former senior insiders claim the Church's current leader, David Miscavige, has created and encouraged a climate of violence within senior staff and was frequently violent himself.
