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.

I'll match my research skills against yours any time, Mr./Ms. "Miller". My sources go far beyond the books I quoted in my message, and extend to numerous articles in newspapers, magazines, and law journals, not to mention the public court records of case 81-681, Cooper v. Scientology et al., and case 81-2608, Garrison v. Flanagan et al., both in the U.S. District Court in Boston. If you do not want to believe Wallis, Lamont, Atack, and Corydon's accounts of Paulette Cooper's harassment, then read these: (All dates are in US format, month/day/year) New York Times 4/1/72, p 21: Author Here Sues Scientologists 1/22/79, p 14: Author of a Book on Scientology Tells of Her 8 Years of Torment 11/24/79 p 12: New Documents Show Scientologists Plotted To Have Writer Jailed (AP) 3/10/81 p B8: Author Files 2d Lawsuit In Scientology Dispute (AP) Boston Globe 11/24/79 p3: Scientologists plotted to frame a critic as a criminal, files show (by Gregory Gordon, UPI) 3/10/81 p 62: N.Y. writer sues Scientologists 5/31/83 p 1: Scientology defectors charge 'dirty tricks' in Boston, by Ben Bradlee Jr. Library Journal 11/1/74 p 2791: Anti-Scientology books: targets of lawsuits (Your cult sued a bunch of Canadian libraries, trying to force them to remove copies of Cooper's and other books critical of you. Nice, huh?) Publisher's Weekly 8/21/78 pp 15-16: Author Files $20-Million Suit Against Scientologists The Nation 5/22/72 pp 658-60: Scientology fights back, by Clay Steinman > I could do the same with 10X as many books written attacking the Jews. MUST you compare yourself to Jews every time someone attacks you???? I'm Jewish and proud to be so, and I consider this highly offensive. By the way, the books I've quoted don't attack "the Scientologists" as a class. Some of them do attack the people who run the Church of Scientology. Big difference! > I bet you > used to write your term papers by spending the day in the library > copying books and other people's papers as well. Especially after the past few months' research, I know a LOT more about libraries than you ever will. Now go away. -- Ron Newman rnewman@cybercom.net Web: http://www.cybercom.net/~rnewman/home.html
