Jews vs. Scientologists - Not the same tax treatment

"An IRS Closing agreement cannot overule Congress and the Supreme Court"... " If the IRS does in fact give preferential treatment to members of "..."Scientology" -- "allowing them a special right to claim deductions that are contrary to law and rightly disallowed to everybody else -- then the proper course of action is a lawsuit to put a stop to that policy ---"

Judge Reinhart - United States 9th Circuit court of Appeals -- 29 January 2002

Use of psycho-narcotics as an information method by the cult of Scientology -- by Joseph Cisar presented before the 10th Annual Christmas Education Conference Series of the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow is happening January 27 - February 1, 2002

Slovakia: The cult has supposedly infiltrated high
government positions and even attained access to secret information. This is a press release from the Canton of Laussane, issued December 18th,

Swiss Tribunal Cantonal rules that Scientology is not a religion
The Cantonal Court of Laussane (equivalent to a court at an US state level) has ruled in the conflict opposing  the authorities of the town of Lausanne and the church of scientology. The church was seeking protection by the court arguing it was religiously harrassed by three members of the Lausanne municipality that had restricted leafletting and booth activities of the church on public grounds.

The court has ruled the the church could not seek protection from religious harassment as under article 261bis (of the Swiss Constitution ?), as it
actually is not a church. The judges estimate that "in scientology, one does not find neither relationships between men and God, nor superior or sacred
principles" and that the services and goods offered by scientology have "nothing religious in them".

According to the cantonal court, a religion must be recognized and accepted as such. It is hence not sufficient to design itself as a church or religion to benefit from the proctection against religious discrimination.

Lisa McPherson wrongful death lawsuit update (St, Petersburg TImes )
"Dandar, a Temple law school graduate, has won settlements for clients from multinational corporations such as Du Pont and Toyota.
But nothing compares to doing legal battle with Scientology, he said.
The case has dominated his practice. And, he said, some weird stuff has happened.

Former clients have been called and told Dandar was under investigation for arms and drug dealing."

Director Kenneth Anger - Scientology critic: 

"I have a couple of pet hates in Hollywood. Travolta, Cruise, and Kidman . The whole Scientology gang are a bunch of creeps. People have said, "Oh, you mustn't say that in print, or they'll put a rattlesnake in your mailbox!" [Laughs] They're vindictive towards even whispers of criticism. The main chapter hanging up Hollywood Babylon III is the one on Scientology. Did you see Battlefield Earth? It's the most laughable piece of crap I've ever seen, and now Travolta says, "I'm going to make a sequel." Fine. They can drain more Scientology money into it. I encourage them to make Battlefield Earth 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. [L. Ron] Hubbard was such a lousy writer."

Spanish Court acquits Scientologists
Just to put this "big win" of Scientology into perspective, the last information I got from Spain was a telephone call from the last complainant who was left in that case.... John Caban... who was lamenting that all the previous criminal complainants (those who had been wronged..), which included one by Pedro Lerma whose civil lawsuit -- and it was the cult's efforts to crush that civil litigation that grew into the "Spanish criminal indictment" -- had been harassed incessantly and then "bought off" by Scientology to "settle" the matter. Having no complainants left to testify, all the prosecutor was left with was "illicit association" - and not one of the original complainants - to testify. And all this in a country for which $1 US = 172 Spanish pesetas. Scientology's money goes a long way in Spain.

Scientology's plan to make money off WTC bombing--from an internal Scientology email boasting about disruption of Mental Health efforts:

[W]e are trying to move in and knock the psychs [Psychiatrists] out of counseling to the grieving families and that could take another 100
plus people right now. Due to some brilliant maneuvering by some simply genius Sea Org Members we tied up the majority of the psychs
who were attempting to get to families yesterday in Q&A, bullbait and wrangling. They have a hard time completing cycles of action and are pretty easy to disperse."

Are conspirators from the largest domestic spying case in US history, (Scientology from the criminal case of US vs Mary Sue Hubbard) still at it?

What is Scientology?
Slave chains forged of lies
are stronger than fine steel

And those enslaved see
neither shackle nor lock.

The mission must be,
in order to set them free:
show them how their
chains were made

and where lies hid the key...
