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 himself urged the killing of critics of the cult with 'Auditing Routing R-2-45'*, a gunshot to the head with a .45. True to their nature, Scientologist Robert Marcus, a lunatic who has been threatening death on all of alt.religion.scientology for months, has issued a very clear and explicit death threat to respected critic Diane Richardson. I include appropriate portions of the post, italicised with '^' where appropriate. The material needs no further commentary.
