Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

This is an excerpt from a testimonial by Rev. Alfreddie Johnson, Baptist
Minister from Compton, CA, and Founder of the World Literacy Crusade:
"L Ron Hubbard is perhaps the greatest humanitarian in the 21st century.
Very seldom in history do we find individuals who are willing to pay the
price, to make the ultimate sacrifice, to give his life in the cause of
freedom, justice, equality.
"...It is sad that the enemy of God and the enemy of a man has tried to
paint Mr. Hubbard and his technological discovery as a bad thing. The
Merchants of Chaos, The Profiteers of Vulgarity, the Extortionist of Human
Rights through fear and propaganda, the manufacturer and prescriber of
drugs and disease, the pimps of poverty, the legislators of criminaltiy,
the educators of the mis-educated, and the slave master of all the
ignorant irresponsible would have us believe that Mr. Hubbard and his
technology is wicked and not of God or of Christ.
" I humbly submit to you that nothing could be further from the truth. I
am living proof of that. In my experience with Mr. Hubbard's technology, I
have been able to confront and eliminate things that have caused ruin in
my life. As a result, I am able to be more ethical, more responsible, more
creative, and more successful in my Christian walk and Christian ministry.
"....So I say to all men of religious, political, economic, philosophical,
mystical persuasions, take this technology of Mr. Hubbard and learn it and
then share it with others.
" Next to the teachings of God through his son and the Prophets, it may be
the greatest gift you have ever given to yourself and to mankind."
God bless and keep you,
Rev. Alfreddie Johnson
