Thank you very much for your article exposing another facet of the secretive "Church" of Scientology!

It is important in these times to strip away the facade of religiousity that this predatory cult lurks behind, as they're currently scrambling to acquire public funding for many of their phony and useless front groups.

Scientologist Tom Cruise has reportedly been schmoozing with the Bush White House for Federal support of their "study tech," which would introduce children to L. Ron Hubbard's junk science in public schools.

Cruise is also pushing the potentially health-threatening "purification rundown" to New York firefighters, and the cult's useless "drug rehab" front group, Narconon, is being promoted to various state assemblies as a viable treatment for prisoners.

On this 40th anniversary of the Jonestown massacre, it is vital to remember that there are still destructive, predatory cults out there seeking the vulnerable, innocent and gullible. It is especially important for elected officials to realize that, when you lie down with the wealthy Scientology organization, you get up covered in imaginary space cooties. There is a saying amongst critics of Scientology, "It really is worse than you can imagine."

This is quite true, as a little online research will reveal.

You will undoubtedly be deluged by a flood of nearly identical letters from "individual" Scientologists, all whining about religious bigotry and intolerance.

Let me state this clearly; critics of Scientology do not object to the beliefs of Scientology, silly as they are. We object to the actions of the organization; unneccesary early death from treatable illness, the abuse of members and those who speak out against this treatment, the destruction of families, life savings, the suicides, and fraudulent practices.

Scientology has a fifty year history of antisocial behavior which has nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with money and power.

How many churches have armed compounds such as Gold Base in Hemet, California?

How many churches have slimed into a community under a false identity like Scientology did in Clearwater, Florida?

How many churches have prison camps, paramilitary forces, like Scientology's Rehabilitation Project Force and their toy Navy, the Sea Organization?

Dr. Dave Touretzky has put up an excellent website outlining the Study Tech at

http://www.studytech.org/

Historian Chris Owen's sites address L. Ron Hubbard's true Navy record at

http://www.ronthewarhero.org/

and also their dangerously useless drug rehab program at

http://www.narconon-exposed.org/

For an overview of the Scientology organization, http://www.xenu.net/ is an excellent start.

Of course, the curious should also visit Scientology's own websites for a comparison. www.scientology.org is their main site, but the site they maintain on their "enemies," such as myself and Dr. Touretzky, are most revealing. That can be viewed at

http://religiousfreedomwatch.com/extremists/index.html

I have purchased several copies of this month's issue and intend to spread them around where they'll do the most good.

Thank you for your courage in publishing this article. You follow in the footsteps of other brave publishers and writers who have dared to take on this totalitarian monolith, such as Paulette Cooper and Time Magazine. Both wrote exposes critical of the Scientology organization, and suffered the consequences.

Back before the internet, critics were more easily intimidated and silenced. Today, the world watches Scientology's every move.

Congratulations on an excellent article, and your courage in printing it!
