Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- From news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!news.dgsys.com!DGS.dgsys.com!alerma Mon Jul 10 17:02:28 1995 Path: news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!news.dgsys.com!DGS.dgsys.com!alerma From: alerma@dgsys.com (alerma) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: ARS Oldie but Goodies - Here come the goons... Date: 8 Jul 1995 05:50:34 GMT Organization: Digital Gateway Systems Lines: 102 Distribution: world Message-ID: <3tl6ba$e77@news.dgsys.com> NNTP-Posting-Host: dgs.dgsys.com X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2] 10 nov 1994 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 perjuring myself. Shortly after the visit (within 60 minutes) from the CofS goons the following Fax was received with no return header. Recieved in full caps. THE CHURCH HAS INTERCEPTED A GREAT DEAL OF DEFAMATORY REMARKS AND PUBLICATIONS...SOME OBTAINED ILLICITLY...ON THE COMPUTER BULLETIN BOARDS OF INTERNET AND AMERICA ONLINE. 1. WE KNOW WHO 'DICONNECTED" IS 2: WE ALSO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN FRAUDULENTLY PUTTING OUT MATERIAL ON THE BULLETIN BOARDS AS "PAT BROEKER" 3. WE KNOW THAT YOU HAVE OBTAINED THE ILLICIT SPANISH COURT DOCUMENTS THAT ENDED UP ON AMERICA ONLINE. (THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT IS NOT VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS.)(underlined) THE COS IS WILLING TO SETTLE THIS MATTER OUT OF COURT AND WITHOLD ANY FURTHER LEGAL OR INVESTIGATIVE ACTION IF YOU WILL AGREE TO CEASE AND DESIST ALL YOUR ACTIVITY AGAINST THE CHURCH AND ANSWER SOME OF OUR QUESTIONS TO CLARIFY THIS MATTER. WHAT WE WANT TO KNOW IS: (Bold face) 1. WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION FOR THESE DEFAMATORY ACTIONS? 2. WHO HAVE YOU COLLUDED WITH? WHO ELSE IS INVOLVED? 3. WHY ARE YOU USING PAT BROEKER'S (underlined) NAME? 4. FROM WHERE, HOW AND FROM WHOM DID YOU OBTAIN THE SPANISH COURT DOCUMENTS? PLEASE READ AND SIGN THIS DOCUMENT..THAT YOU AGREE TO CEASE AND DESIST YOUR ACTIVITY AGAINST THE CHURCH AND WE WILL TAKE NO FURTHER ACTION. THIS DOCUMENT WILL HELP ENFORCE OUR AGREEMENT. (unsigned)... end of Fax recieved. My attorney advised me to report the incident to the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION I did this, and gave the agent copies of the affidavits, tabbed to areas of exceptional interest. The agent advised me to file an official police report with the local police, I did the Case # is 941103049 I also gave the local authorities Andre's affidavit. My report to the State Attorney General should be there in 24 hours.
