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

So, as quick as someone might speak out and say, “Hey, I’m a
Scientologist and this is my point of view,” he would get vehemently and
viciously attacked religiously and personally from many sides; issue
taken with each paragraph - and all of the above based on...
second and third hand information as I said; allegations, claims,
reports of apparently incriminating court records (much of such
inflammatory information is the result of Mr. Erlich’s activities, who
was thrown out of the Church for theft and Squirelling - that is,
altering the technology).
Of course, someone will dutifully take exception to all these
statements, again. The rancor with which this occurs is my evidence.
So blast away.
The responses would have me in an endless debate on every minor point,
yet they all avoided the major premise completely. So I'll be more
What do you know to be fact, personally, yourself, with firsthand
knowledge - what do you *actually* know about the CoS? Answer that.
