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

Thanks for asking. Though I imagine you will get some similar
responses, I just wanted to have a shot at your question. Where to
begin...hmmm..hmmm..OK let's start with Woody. I actually know that
Woody is inane. Woody, an apparent product of the CoS, is a terrible
representitive of the CoS. Admitedly any group is going to have their
share of "special" people. Why does the CoS have so many? Koos is very
special. Robert Marcus, special in a "is that a bowie knife in your
pocket or are you just happy to see me" sort of way. Vera delighted in
posting the names and addresses of several people here. Milne, lie-boy.
Jack Farmer? HA HA HA HA HA. Russell Shaw was the only CoS poster with
even the slightest bit of humor and personality. These are the posters
that I've actually seen, no doubt I've missed quite a few of the
earlier ones. So, the representitives the CoS sends out are just
miserable and tedious. I know the CoS has terrible taste.
I know that the CoS claims that auditing is a "science-fact", which
it is not. Why does the CoS lie? I know that CoS is harassing and
intimidating Dennis Erlich. Why does your church harass? I know that
the Scientology Spokesmodel, Leissa Goodman, denies her own religious
beliefs. Why is she ashamed? I know that the CoS has a recent history
of intimidation, violence, harassment. I know the church charges money
for its religious services. I know whenever I ask a specific question
regarding the beliefs of the CoS I am only referred to an endless
stream of LRH texts. This is getting tedious. I won't bore you or
anybody else further. These are just a few things I know personally
about the CoS.
Thanks for asking.
