AnonyNews 10.10 [SIZE="4"]Stalemate at a close, man all harpoons.[/SIZE] The United States is having an epic week of win. First up, a New York Times front page article entitled "Breaking With Scientology" exposes Scientology abuses featuring Christie and Chris Collbran, Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, and the one and only Tommy Davis. In it the practices of disconnection and forced abortions, the RPF, staff abuse in the Sea Org, and the Billion Year Contract are all discussed. This seems to have set off a chain reaction of epicness, with discussions on Scientology from ABC radio, NBC, and AOL News, to TIME Magazine deciding to repost their "Cult of Greed and Power" article on their website, to remind us that they were the OP. Truly, this is the beginning of the end. [SIZE="4"]Former Rugby player Joe Reaiche accuses Scientologists of abuse[/SIZE] The australian HeraldSun writes: Several Australians have spoken out for the first time about their experiences with the church, accusing it of forced abortions, holding slave labor camps and exploiting child workers. Former rugby league player Joe Reaiche told ABC's Four Corners program that he was coerced into spending $400,000 on spiritual books and being paid just $20 a week as an employee. He also accused the organisation, which counts Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its members, of preventing contact between him and his children after his expulsion in 2005. [SIZE="4"] 'The Today Show' Reports on Scientology [/SIZE] Following the New York Times' report on Christie Colbran's experiences in Scientology, "The Today Show" with Matt Lauer had Christie on for an exclusive interview. Prior to her interview, there was a segment describing Scientology's policies of forced abortions, even referring to their practices as "mind control." Epic. Win. [SIZE="4"]ABC's Four Corners - Scientology: The Ex-Files[/SIZE] Last monday ABC broadcasted a great documentary on Scientology, the Sea Org and the RPF. In it Ex-Scientologists and Ex-Sea Org members tell their story on how they became Scientologists, what they experienced in the cult and how they escaped them. Tommy Davis tries his best to make Scientology look good in the interview, but only makes them look more rediculous and/or dangerous. The documentary features Joe Reaiche, James, Liz and Fiona Anderson, Claire and Marc Headley, Laura DeCrescenzo, Hana Eltringham Whitfield and Peta O'Brien.

[SIZE="4"]VM's steal liquid from Haiti hospital[/SIZE] Watch in disgust as one of Scientology’s clueless “volunteer minsters” in Haiti, a young girl named Ellen Bennett, boasts about stealing water-filled bags from a radiology room to distribute as drinking water. While the water itself was not irradiated, when she removed the bags she stole vital equipment from a hospital, and in case these bags were used as a radiation shield, as it is rumored on the internet, she made the radiology unusable. Wise Beard man says on his blog Xenutv, the bags could also have been other vital supplies: Stopped in at the Urgent Care Facility across the street during my midshift “lunch” break and since things were slow, the radiologist was willing to chat with me….it’s more likely, due to damage to normal storage areas, the room was being used to store lactated Ringer’s solution, which is used for large-volume fluid replacement in trauma emergencies. Or possibly D5W, a 5% dextrose solution in water used for people with low blood sugar or high sodium levels. If it was Ringer’s drinking it shouldn’t hurt anyone, but the lack of it during a emergency trauma situation would definately be a problem. She is of the opinion that anybody taking hospital supplies without permission in an emergency situation, no matter how helpful they think they are being, should be tossed in jail and the key thrown away. No matter what was in the bags.

[SIZE="4"]AOL News: New Allegations Cap Bad Year for Scientology[/SIZE] After the New York Times Article AOL News also published an article about the recent situation of the Cult of Scientology. The interesting part in this Article are the numbers. It say on the AOL News Page: "According to the American Religious Identification Survey, 45,000 Americans identified themselves as Scientologists in 1990, and 55,000 did in 2001. But in 2008, that number plummeted to 25,000. It's well short of the millions of followers Scientology leaders claim, both in the United States and abroad, where the church often is not officially recognized alongside other religions." and: "If that trend continues, Scientology isn't likely to survive many of our lifetimes -- let alone the billions of years the church promises its "immortal" adherents."
