    But they have to complete L Ron's long-lost "How to destroy documents" course (due 2011, for only $1000) before they can use it.

    We still have time!

    Now this is a scene I want to see in Los Angeles at every LAPD police station pretty soon.

    right in the beginning some enterprising anon field agents posted pix of scilons loading large amounts of paperwork into vans.
    I fear it may allready be to late.

    best footnote ever:

    It's nice to see the press take an honest approach to the subject, rather then sugarcoat the facts.

    So many ex-members, including top-rung ones, are now defecting & telling their stories, with some talking to the FBI (Larry Brennan says he's talked to the FBI, apparently re. his 1st-hand knowledge that Miscavige perjured himself severely during hearings related to CoS's successful attempt to regain tax-free status).
    I'm hoping the FBI is quietly doing extensive investigation now into the cult, and will soon announce sweeping charges.

    It was a turning point (for the worse) for the mafia when the US gov't finally got serious about routing out organized crime by enacting RICO racketeering laws, deploying large-scale investigations,witness protection programs, etc. The Italian mafia at least, is a ghost of its former self.

    It's great Australian police are investigating.
    I'd love to see CoS get the same thorough treatment from the US justice system it applied pretty successfully to the Italian mafia.

    Jail for Miscavige (& others)!

    This may have finally reached some sort of self sustaining critical mass. Very interesting and very encouraging for critics. Public reaction is key. If politicians sense that the public would be interested in investigations, they may see an easy chance to look good by beating up on scientology.
  14. Re: "Police take up Scientology complaints"

    Of course! Scientology seems to be a freebie for instant media stories these days! :D

    Dutch blog mentions Xenophon vs Scientology

    SpitsNieuws : 'Scientology is crimineel'

    Google translate:

    Google Vertaling

    Spitsnieuws is a Dutch blog that publishes short press articles by the national press agency, and allows users to give their opinion about it. As far as I know it has quite a big audience.

    Edit: oops, should have posted in the media megathread. Mods, please feel free to move.

    Re: Senator Xenophon Scientology Speech - Media Coverage Megathread

    Okay-
    I havn't seen anybody point it out yet, though I'm sure its obvious to everyone...
    notice, he DOES NOT AT ALL talk about any of Scientology's beliefs- PERIOD.
    He doesn't talk about the dangers of the purif or the flaws in the tech...
    He's talking about the crimes and abuses exes claim to have been victims of...
    How is this "Attacks on religious beliefs"
    "Hate speech" etc, etc...
    I'm wondering if 'poons to the Aussie media to raises questions about this concept would help or not...

    "Is scientology saying coerced abortions, blackmail, embezzlement, etc a part of scientology's religious beliefs?"
    (stupid question, I know~)
    but yeah... think the media would eat that up?

    Re: Senator Xenophon Scientology Speech - Media Coverage Megathread

    what about a press release out to all the papers that are covering the Australian PM's investigation into scientology questioning why the UK is planning to give the cult more tax breaks under Harriet Harman's new equality bill

    Should the US media thread be merged into this one?
  33. Re: Senator Xenophon Scientology Speech - Media Coverage Megathread

    It's just been covered on Sky News in the UK - video of Xenophon, plus the Australian premier, Rudd.

    I'm so fucking sick of the "religious persecution" bawwwing. Here's a blog post discussing the matter in light of the Xenophon speech.
