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.

Ron Hubbard collectively constitute the scriptures of the religion." Among the religious writings of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard: - "Don't defend Always attack." (1960) - "Harrass these persons in any possible way" (1965 campaign against splinter groups) - "NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology ONLY agree to an investigation of the attackers." - "There has never yet been an attacker who was not reeking of crime. All we had to do was look for it and murder would come out" (1966 policy letter) - "They are enemies of mankind, the planet and all life. They are fair game." (a 1968 "ethics order" covering a list of "supressive persons" - "The prize is 'public opinion' where press is concerned. The only safe public opinion to head for is they love us are in a frenzy of hate against the enemy, this means standard wartime propaganda is what we are doing...." - "Never treat war as a skirmish. Treat all skirmishes like wars. (1969 "Battle Tactics") Wonderful religion you have there, boys and girls.
