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

Scientologists have been long known for making death threats, harassing
their enemies, and 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.
