June 8, 1999: Scientology Apologises to Bonnie Woods

Defendant's Counsel:
On behalf of the Church of Scientology and all the Defendants I wish to associate myself with all that has been said by counsel for the Plaintiff. The Defendants regret that when responding to Mrs Woods' criticisms of the Church of Scientology they went too far in attributing to her conduct and motives which they now accept were not correct. Through me they apologise to Mrs Woods and undertake (in the terms of the draft Order before Your Lordship) not to make any such allegations again.

Scientology Crime Cult "Reverend" Menaces Father

This letter was received by a man in the mid-west whose son took $550 worth of courses but only paid for $200 of them. The father was then billed for the balance in a letter saying he had "agreed" to pay the other $350. The father wrote back saying he hadn't "agreed" to any such thing, and reported the Scientologists. On October 13, he received the following threats and accusations from a Scientology Reverend:

"Rather than let my lawyers have *all* the fun, I will write to you this once and straighten you out. I have a great urge to beggar you to your last pair of socks, but I will curb the desire a little longer. If you had the wit of a demented swineherd you would have read those pieces of literature I so graciously had sent to you...do not judge people by yourself. Not everyone is a mass murderer like yourself. Yes, I know quite a bit about you and your various projects during the war. And how do you sleep at night? I hope tis ill...I am expert at harassment, try me and find out. You are not strong enough. You are not smart enough. You haven't the funds to go through long lengthy court battles."

Scientology Crime Cult Coughs up Huge Libel Judgment

Scientologists pay giant libel debt on time

The Toronto Star
Saturday, September 2, 1995
By Wendy Darroch
The Church of Scientology handed over almost $3 million yesterday, before the noon deadline, to pay off the largest libel award in Canadian history.

Casey Hill, a former crown attorney and now an Ontario Court Judge, won the jury award in 1992. In upholding the decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal said Hill was a victim of character assassination.

The award was also upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada.

In 1984, Hill was falsely accused of misleading a judge and of breaching a court order sealing more than 200 documents seized after a raid on the church by the police.

Judges Agree: L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology are "schizophrenic and paranoid"

"[The court record is] replete with evidence [that Scientology] is nothing in reality but a vast enterprise to extract the maximum amount of money from its adepts by pseudo scientific theories... and to exercise a kind of blackmail against persons who do not wish to continue with their sect.... The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder, L.Ron Hubbard."

For some Scientologists, pilgrimage has been fatal

©St. Petersburg Times, December 7, 1997
By LUCY MORGAN

CLEARWATER -- From around the world, they come to Clearwater, looking for answers.

Week after week, they are drawn to the Church of Scientology, seeking to improve or rebuild their lives.

But for a few of these pilgrims, the search has ended in death.

Since 1980, at least eight members of the Church of Scientology have died in Clearwater under circumstances that leave their friends, families and in some cases law enforcement authorities looking for their own answers.

Scientology: Rev Up Those Shredders Again, Cultists

From: The Courtroom Files

"In January 1980, fearing a raid by law enforcement agencies, Hubbard's representatives ordered the shredding of all documents showing that Hubbard controlled Scientology organizations, finances, personnel, or the property at Gilman Hot Springs.

Another Proud Scientologist: CHARLES MANSON

The Scientology Connection:
Scientology played an important part in the lives of Charles Manson and Bruce Davis.

There is documented evidence regarding the teachings of Scientology to Manson even while he was incarcerated during the 1950's. It is reported Charles Manson reached the level "Clear" and was rather astute in his adaptation of control and manipulation techniques when dealing with other people. Manson used Scientology to answer questions with Diane Sawyer during the ABC television broadcast. Manson often expressed the concept of living in the "Now" and that term was used to describe the murder of Shorty Shea, when the killers said "It was hard to bring Shorty to Now".

Bruce Davis was an emissary for Manson when he traveled to England to work out problems between The Process and Scientology. Davis denied to the BBC reporter Bill Murphy that he ever traveled to Manchester England, despite the fact witnesses saw him there. Murphy had an acquaintance who actually witnessed Bruce Davis traveling around Manchester with a coven of witches.

Murder victims Doreen Gaul and James Sharp were deeply involved in the Church of Scientology and it was documented James Sharp conducted instruction to Doreen Gaul the night of her murder.

Disgusting Scientology Morons Let Kid Die "Protected by Postulate"

AFFIDAVIT of:
YOLANDA HOWELL
August 30, 1989

Dear Margery,

I read of your plight in the Free Spirit. I, too have a Scientology horror story to relate. I, also, would seek some sort of recompense (if it were possible to replace the lost lives, dreams, relationships, income potential, etc.) but have not known where to turn as I was told my "statute of limitations" was up. I was in such a state of shock I couldn't even talk about it for the period of the statute of limitations!

In a nutshell, as I believe you need these statements to be brief, I will relate my tale as follows:

1. In May of 1973, at 21 years of age, I joined the Church of Scientology, Mission of Salt Lake City, Utah.

2. In November 1973, after unsatisfactory (and very strange) "marriage counseling," I divorced my husband of five years. I had three children, aged 4, 2, and 9 months. We sold our two-year-old house and all of our possessions and my ex took all of the money so he could get "audited."

Scientology Crime Cult Can't Sue for Being Exposed as "Cult of Greed"

Judge rules Time can't be sued for calling Scientology "cult of greed"

CNN, July 17, 1996

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A federal judge has thrown out the remaining part of a $415 million lawsuit brought by the Church of Scientology against Time Warner Inc. The suit charged that Time magazine maliciously libeled the church in a 1992 article that called it a "cult of greed." Most of the case was thrown out last year. The judge conducted a hearing to decide if the last piece of the lawsuit should go as well.

The article was unusually tough and opinionated, even according to Time's own lawyer. It charged Scientology was a "ruthless global scam" posing as a religion. It said it was not a religion but an organization obsessed with making money.

Scientology was founded 41 years ago by science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. It requires initiates to undergo teaching and counseling that can cost thousands of dollars.

Crime Boss Miscavige:
Bizarre Buggery Outburst

Deposition of David Miscavige
by Keith Henson and Grady Ward, May 21, 1997 at Palm Springs, California.

(*) = David Miscavige, head of the Church of Scientology
GW = Grady Ward, deposing David Miscavige under oath

"(*): Wait a second, I'd like to note for the record that Mr. Ward here, said he was doing TR 1.1. And I would just like that noted here. That is probably not understandable to someone who is not a Scientologist, but it is definitely an attempt to demean the religion[sic] of Scientology and I'd like that noted for the record. This TR 1.1 refers to a writing by Graham Berry, where he states that he will start up a 1.1 Club, including, qualifications for this for non homosexuals, is that there will be a public buggering of the leaders of Scientology. Buggering of course I think you know that it refers to sodomy and that is I understand what the 1.1 Club is. I think that's what Mr. Ward was stating that in reference to. I'd also like to state for the record. I believe I've taken about a minute to state that and I'm willing to give them an extra minute so that it doesn't come off their time.

Elvis on Scientology:
FUCK THOSE PEOPLE!

"One day, in L.A., we got in the limousine and went down to the Scientology center on Sunset, and Elvis went in and talked to them. We waited in the car, but apparently they started doing all these charts and crap for him. Elvis came out and said 'Fuck those people! There's no way I'll ever get involved with that son-of-a-bitchin' group. All they want is my money.' Well, Peggy still kept on about it, so Elvis didn't date her any more. And he stayed away from Scientology like it was a cobra. He'd shit a brick to see how far Lisa Marie's gotten into it."

Insane Scientology Crime Cult Thug Shoots at Journalists

Cult's private detective fires at journalists

The Sunday Times, 8 November 1987
by Richard Palmer

A PRIVATE detective, employed by representatives of the Church of Scientology cult to investigate one of its opponents, shot at a Sunday Times reporter and photographer and threatened to kill them last week.

The detective, Jarl Grieve Einar Cynewulf, fired a pistol at the journalists after saying. "You'd better go now unless you want to end up in a wooden box. Do you want to be another Hungerford martyr?"

Although the gun was fired from close range, the journalists escaped unharmed after a chase through the streets near Cynewulf's home in Oldland Common, Bristol, on Thursday night.

Earlier, the private detective had said that the Church of Scientology had paid him $2,500 to smear the author of a critical new book on the late L. Ron Hubbard. Cynewulf said he had been told he could name his price if he could produce evidence that Russell Miller, the author, was an agent of the CIA.

Justice Latey on the Scientology Crime Cult: Corrupt, Sinister and Dangerous

"Ultimately Wollersheim became so convinced auditing was causing him psychiatric problems he was willing to risk becoming a target of "freeloader debt" and "fair game." Evidence was introduced that, at least during the time relevant to Wollersheim's case, "fair game" was a practice of retribution Scientology threatened to inflict on "suppressives," which included people who left the organization or anyone who could pose a threat to the [212 Cal.App.3d 880] organization. Once someone was identified as a "suppressive," all Scientologists were authorized to do anything to "neutralize" that individual -- economically, politically, and psychologically.

The Death of Susan Meister

From: A PIECE OF BLUE SKY
Scientology, Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard Exposed

by Jon Atack
Susan Meister was introduced to Scientology in San Francisco in the autumn of 1970. By November, she was working at the San Francisco Org. She was an eager convert, and tried to persuade her parents to become Scientologists. She wanted to be close to the "Founder," and contribute to "Clearing the Planet," so in February 1971 she joined the Sea Org. By the end of the month she was aboard the "Flagship" Apollo. Her stay there was brief and tragic. On May 8, she wrote to her mother:

Mother, Do you recall talking to me about WW Ill--and where it would start if it were to start--father and most everyone else maintained that it would start in either China or Russia vs. U.S. and you said--oh no-~it would originate in Germany--that the Nazis hadn't given up yet--? Well babe, you were right--there is a new Nazi resurgence taking place in Germany--so now it's a race between the good guys in the white hats (Scientologists) [sic] and the Leipzig death camp (Nazis) [sicl the bad guys in the black hats--we'll win of course--but the game is exciting. Truth is stranger than fiction. As Alice [in Wonderland] says "Things get curiouser and curiouser!" Get into Scientology now. lt's fantastic.
Love, Susan
