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

CofS unleashes the goons.
I have been advised by my attorney to post this
description of recent events:
I hereby declare and state the following:
This morning I drove to the bank, and two men in a
Blazer style truck were following me.
I doubled back, lost em and went home after
going to the bank. Shortly thereafter the fellows
showed up on my dorrstep and said, "We are from
the Church of Scientology"
I closed the door.
I found an unsigned affidavit with my name on it
that apparantly sought to acknowldge information I
may or may not have divulged
during the Church's auditing during my involvement
over 15 years ago.
The affidavit further contained outright false data
for instance it said that I "...eventually left the Church
entirely because I could not maintain a high enough
ethical standard and wished to protect the organization
from my destructive behaivor"
It also called upon me to "recant these statements in full
and to make it known that my actions were unfounded"
In fact, - I left the Church after being given a choice
of my health and safe passage out of the State of Florida
in exchange for not going through with a marriage to
Suzette Hubbard for which we had already gotten the
blood tests and filed the license to be married at the
Clearwater County Court House, a few blocks from
the main buildings there. I reached the conclusion
that truth, justice and ethics had nothing to do with
the Scientology. And spent a few years trying to
forget the time I invested with the Church
seeking to fix whats wrong in the world.
Needless to say, to sign this document, would amount to
Shortly after the visit (within 60 minutes) from the CofS goons the following
