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

A father got this letter from Reverend Bagley:
Rather than let my lawyers have all the fun, I will write to you this
once and straighten you out. I have a great urge to beggar you to your
last pair of socks, but I will curb the desire a little longer. If you
had the gut of a demented swineherd you would have read those pieces of
literature I so graciously had sent to you... do not judge people by
yourself. Not everyone is a mass murderer like yourself. Yes, I know
quite a bit about you and your various projects during the war. And how
do you sleep at night? I hope tis ill... I am expert at harassment, try
me and find out. You are not strong enough. You are not smart enough.
You haven't the funds to go through long lengthy court battles. We have.
Bigger men than you have done their best to stop us. They failed. So
will you because you are a blatant moron in comparison. We joust only
with our peers, others like you we will simply gobble up... one more
word out of you and I'll have you investigated. I might anyway. I have
never seen one person yet that resisted Scientology who didn't have a
great deal to hide. And you evidently won't look at free books sent to
you, so you must, perforce have a great deal to conceal.
[The letter continued with more accusations of guilt on the part of the
father, along with praise of Scientology and concluded on this ominous
If you want to start a Donnybrook, Buddy, wail away; to use the argot of
the streets I'll just start my people to work on you and then before
long you will be broke, and out of a job and broken in health. Then I
can have my nasty little chuckle about you and get back to work. . .
You won't take long to finish off. I would estimate three weeks.
Remember: I am not a mealy mouthed psalm [sic] canting preacher. I am a
minister of the Church of Scientology I am able to heal the sick and I
do. But I have other abilities which include a knowledge of men's minds
that I will use to crush you to your knees. You or any other wretch that
stands in our way. Cause the list is long, but their careers are very
short of those that have jousted with us.
With the utmost sincerity possible
Reverend Andrew Bagley
P.S.: Don't reply to this letter. If I want to get in touch with you,
I'll be able to find you. Anywhere.
Reverend Andrew Bagley wrote this letter to a father who didn't want to
pay the courses of his son, and reported the scienos.
Later, the father paid the bill, and his son took approximately $4,500
worth more courses in Scientology paying for them himself the next time
from a $5,000 inheritance.
