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

On _a_ religion. The term "religion" being quite loosely
Hell, if you check the group (which this is also posted to, and,
incidentally, followups are set there exclusively), you'll note that most
objections are _not_ based on Scientology in general, they're based on
what Scientology does, what it stands for, and what their goals are.
Few there would dispute the right of a religion to exist; fewer would
advocate destruction of all involved. However, we can -- and do --
despise their actions, criminal or otherwise.
And we also fight against their actions.
