HALF A BRAIN IS BETTER THAN NONE...

The Scientology gods work in strange ways. Star is reporting that Katie Holmes took a trip to freaksville when Tom Cruise insisted on her signing a pre-nuptial agreement. Katie apparently has wanted to marry the resolutely non-gay Cruise since she was a teenager. Indeed, Star describes her as being "head over heels" in love with him. The bump she's showing these days does make it look as though she had her heels over her head at least once. So she took the insistence on a pre-nuptial agreement as a message that Tom does not love her as much as she loves him. Sham is a four-letter word, but for these two there seems to be no shame in it. Katie is said to have been placated by Tom's explanation that he wants the pre-nuptial agreement to make sure she is always taken care of. And you thought such questions were settled in a Last Will and Testament. Granting that the girl has half a brain, you have to assume she's using the missing half when she accepts Tom's explanation.

New Zealand website owner responds to the Church of Scientology's lawsuit threat; "We're keeping our domain... see you in court"

Last month the Church of Scientology issued a cease and desist order to the New Zealand owner of a Tom Cruise parody website, www.scientomogy.info demanding they shut down the site and transfer ownership to the Church or face a law suit of up to $100,000. Via email, the Church's law firm Moxon & Kobrin stated the website domain was an infringement of their trademark and would cause a "likelihood of confusion" with their own, breaking federal law, specifically citing The Lanham Act , 15 U.S.C.  1125(a).

The Lanham Act contains the federal statutes governing trademark law in the United States and the church would have to prove factors such as "proof of actual confusion" "product types, proximity and marketing", "their respective appearance and meanings", and "(bad) intention behind selecting the mark"

Glen Stollery, the website's owner has now hit back at the church stating "We have researched this and believe their claims are completely without merit. The church can provide no proof as to any confusion regarding the sites. For instance, scientology.info does not even exist, so compared to scienTOMogy.info it is hardly a matter of someone hitting the wrong key. We also have a Full Disclaimer at the top of the front page and in the website's meta-tags stating that there is no connection between ourselves and the church. Not to mention the fact that the site is completely non-commercial in nature, and does not generate a single cent of revenue nor offers any services of any kind. It is a parody site showing the recent lunacy of Tom Cruise - confusion of any kind with their site is literally impossible."  

Stollery continues "The non-commercial use of a trademark as the domain name of a website — the subject of which is consumer commentary about the products and services represented by the mark — does not constitute infringement under the Lanham Act." Bosley Medical Institute v. Kremer (9th Cir., Apr. 4, 2005). In this instance, we are even one step further removed as their trademark is "scientology" not "scienTOMogy" Their claims are completely frivolous."

If this is the case then it would not be the first time the law firm would be found guilty of filing frivolous complaints. In 1994, Helena Kobrin of Moxon & Kobrin, counsel for the Church of Scientology, was ordered to pay sanctions in the total sum of $17,775 for filing a frivolous complaint in federal court. Stollery states on his website that he believes this is simply a way of "scaring any critics into instantly backing down at the prospect of costly lawsuits regardless of their innocence." In closing he says to the church "I'm calling your bluff. File your lawsuit we're keeping our domain... see you in court"

Blogs all over the world discussing Scientomogy...

Man, do GOOGLE BLOG SEARCH ON SCIENTOMOGY  and you'll see hundreds and hundreds of Blogs discussing Scientology/ScienTOMogy.... some of them are priceless. Take this one from Just Jared: http://justjared.blogspot.com/2005/10/scientomogy-cease-and-desist.html
 

WELCOME TO "ScienTOMogy" THE
"PASSION OF CRUISE"

Man, this story totally blows my Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie W magazine one out of the water. The Church of Scientology has threatened legal action against a New Zealand-based website spoofing Tom Cruise. ScienTOMogy.info has received a cease and desist (C&D) letter from one of the church's legal representatives, Ava Paquette of Moxon & Kobrin. Ava sent this letter via an AOL email address, so we've learned her screenname is AMPaquette. Try IM-ing Ava sometime and let me know how it goes. (Isn't it more professional for legal offices to have their own domain-based email rather than communicate via AOL?) Here's a hilarious excerpt from the C&D --
You are hereby on notice that the registration and use of this domain name [ScienTOMogy.info] in this fashion has caused your name to be falsely associated with our client's registered mark, SCIENTOLOGY, as owner and creates a likelihood of confusion as to the source or sponsorship of this domain name in violation of United States state and federal law... The fact that you have changed one letter (" m" instead of "l") does not protect you from trademark infringement.
Wasn't that great? That almost tops the 4815162342 spelling and grammar mistakes from my own C&D. But sadly, the C&D isn't even the half of it. The owner of ScienTOMogy.info has been deluged with emails after emails after emails after phone calls after phone calls after phone calls. If that wasn't enough, Scientology henchmen obtained the website owner's home address and have been visiting his home all hours of the day! It's gotten so bad that the owner had to install security cameras in front of his home to monitor suveillance! HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT? I'm sure more updates will be posted on ScienTOMogy.info.

Here's the backstory -- The Church of Scientology is notorious for pursing legal action under the name of "Religious Technology Center" (RTC). One C&D demanded a Mr. Shand to remove confidential, unpublished, copyrighted
photographs belongong to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of The Church of Scientology. And similar to scienTOMogy.info, another C&D demanded that the ownership of truthaboutscientology.com be transferred over to them.

Now here's the back-backstory -- One of the owners of legal office Moxon & Kobrin is Helena Kobrin. Helena has been sanctioned in the past for bringing up frivolous actions.
On May 2, 1994, Helena Kobrin, counsel for the Church of Scientology, was ordered to pay sanctions in the total sum of $17,775 for filing a frivolous complaint in federal court.
But don't feel so bad, Bowles & Moxon only had to pay a portion of that.
Defendants shall recover from Attorney Helena K. Kobrin and the law firm of Bowles & Moxon, jointly and severally, monetary sanctions under Rule 11 in the sum of $8,887.50, as partial reimbursement for attorneys' fees incurred in defending against the amended complaint.

Spoof site faces religious lawsuit

Oct 19, 2005

A New Zealand website spoofing Hollywood actor Tom Cruise and his religion of choice is facing legal action from the Church of Scientology.

The church is not amused by scienTOMogy - which features spoof videos of the star - and says it is breaching copyright.

When Cruise engaged in some sofa stomping, he coined a new phrase called jumping the couch - the defining moment when someone has gone of the deep end.

From that moment Glen Stollery has been chronicling Cruise's crusade to promote the Scientology Church.

The church is not amused however and says the website name is too similar to its own.

It has sent an impressive legal letter to the Aucklander ordering him to turn over the website name to them or face the consequences of a $100,000 law suit.

"There's nothing wrong with what I've done. It makes it very clear it's not a scientology site," Stollery says.

The potential law suit has turned scienTOMogy into a cult of its own, with entertainment and gossip sites running the story.

"He's criticising but it's clear he's not associated with them and my gut feeling is a court would come down on the side that this is fair criticism," says intellectual property lawyer Earl Gray.

The site has gone from having 100 hits a day to more than a million in a matter of hours.

The church says it has no problem with satirical sites but the name scienTOMogy has to go.

"Trademark law says just changing one letter is still violating the trademark," says Scientology spokesman Mike Ferriss.

Stollery will change the website name to Passion of Cruise but says he won't be relinquishing the scienTOMogy name to the church.

Eyes wide open: Biographer digging for info on Cruise

A Tom Cruise bio by the author of books on Princess Diana, Madonna and Monica Lewinsky is bound to upset the defenders of his faith at the Church of Scientology.
Tom Cruise has a new biographer - even though he probably doesn't want one.

Andrew Morton - who scaled the best-seller lists with books about Princess Diana, Madonna and Monica Lewinsky - is digging for fresh bits about the diminutive box-office Goliath.

A source at St. Martin's Press, which published the Lewinsky and Madonna books, tells us it hopes to bring out the book next fall, but the house doesn't seem eager to bugle the deal.

That could be because Morton, who enjoyed the full cooperation of Di and Monica, is not likely to get much from Cruise. In fact, Morton is probably bracing himself for interference from the actor's protectors at the Church of Scientology. Last week at an L.A. restaurant, the former Daily Mail reporter was spotted debriefing private eye Paul Barresi and attorney Graham Berry, reports radaronline.com.

Baressi actually did Cruise a favor in 2002, when he helped put the kibosh on a story peddled by a porn actor who claimed he'd been intimate with Cruise.

But there are few people Scientologists loathe more than Berry, who represented a psychiatrist quoted in Time's scorching 1991 Scientology story in a libel suit.

Berry wouldn't discuss what he and Morton talked about, but told us that "Cruise can be compared to Charles Lindbergh and his support of Nazi Germany."

Cruise's sister and publicist, Lee Anne De Vette, didn't return a call by deadline.

Recently, the church's lawyers threatened to sue ScienTomogy.info, a site that pokes fun at Cruise and his faith, for copyright infringement. Since then, the site's creator, New Zealander Gary Stollery [sic], has posted a disclaimer on his Web page, explaining that the site is a joke. Still, he's received mass E-mails, late-night cell-phone calls and even house visits from church members looking to "explain" the sect to him.

hypocrisy, a noun

Traffic to the site has gone through the roof - 64,000 hits in 3 hours today thus far! And people are now seeing the reality, and, as they do, they express it in their BLOG!
 
The following is taken from a BLOG and I just love it so much I'm blogging her BLOG (if she doesn't mind!) Visit it at http://oddvitamins.blogspot.com/2005/10/hypocrisy-noun.html and thank you for your kind words! PS; not sure why the site was down but it isn't anymore!

"hypocrisy, a noun

Jeanette Walls at MSNBC has a great scoop this morning, for those of you out of the loop on the spreading epidemic of Tom Cruise hatred. If you’re not familiar with ScienTOMogy.info, you need to visit immediately.

ScienTOMogy.info has received cease and desist letters from the church, threatening to sue the New Zealand-based Web site for copyright infringement, according to various sources.

“You are hereby on notice that the registration and use of this domain name in this fashion has caused your name to be falsely associated with our client’s registered mark, SCIENTOLOGY,” notes a legal letter posted online. “The fact that you have changed one letter (“m” instead of “l”) does not protect you from trademark infringement.”

The site — which mercilessly ridicules Cruise, his engagement, and his devotion to the controversial religion — has posted a disclaimer of sorts:

“YOU MUST UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CONTINUING: Obviously www.scienTOMogy.info has ABSOLUTELY NO connection whatsoever with the Church of Scientology, it’s [sic] affiliated organizations or, needless-to-say, Tom Cruise. It is designed for commentary and criticism within the limits of Free Speech. All content should be treated as opinion and all trademarks/copyrighted material herein are owned by their respective trademark owners. The Scientology site is [link to site]. Thank you. You may continue…”


What’s even more disgusting about the Church of Scientology’s oh-so-scientific campaign against free speech--something the Internet is all about, by the way--is that ScienTOMogy is only part satire, and what is satire is clearly labelled “SATIRE.” Two-thirds of the main page consists exclusively of downloadable video evidence of Tom’s manic panic to save the world from, I don’t know, rational thinking? There’s the Matt Lauer interview, the Oprah interview, the Access Hollywood interview...even a press conference or two thrown in for good measure. How exactly does the “Church” of Scientology plan to prosecute this website for defamation of character when the bulk of their “defamation” consists of their own star client’s televised insanity?

And if these people have the answers to complete enlightenment, then what the fuck do they need to threaten their detractors for? If they’re so scientific, then they would welcome a conversation that allows all perspectives--even those that choose to voice their criticism through satire, a time-honored method of illuminating the weaknesses of a society or school of thought. If they’re actually a “church”, whatever happened to forgiveness and compassion? They might not agree with it, but in the spirit of generosity, shouldn’t they just let it go?

It’s interesting how they’re apparently not a cult, and yet nothing about them is remotely charitable, humanitarian, or vaguely thick-skinned. I never hear about the Church of Scientology giving money and resources to those in need outside of their own organization. I never hear about them counseling people who are feeling lost or in crisis to seek help. I never heard about them giving money after the tsunami, the hurricanes, or the earthquake. I never hear about them going into Calcutta and caring for the sick and dying with their own hands. I never hear about Scientologists who forsake all worldly pursuits in order to do the work of God. I do hear the Church of Scientology, and their little shaggy-haired manchild spokesperson, Tom Cruise, repeatedly telling people that they are ignorant, misguided and doomed to a life of failure, alienation and suffering because of these “hopeless” flaws that they are too stupid to fix for themselves. I hear the Church of Scientology, instead of giving to charity, repeatedly criticizing those in this country who could benefit most from it--children, women, the mentally ill, the homeless, the hungry, the lonely. Jesus, Moses, Muhammed, the Buddha--all these had a legacy of compassion, forgiveness, generosity and unconditional love. Even for morons like Tom Cruise, even for those who promote the dangerous ideals of Scientology; and this is why threatening the good-humored and well-meaning authors of a satirical website is the very pinnacle of their hypocrisy.

Visit ScienTOMogy.info and show your support.

EDIT: Incidentally, we have reason to believe that changing one letter in the name of a domain does protect an author from copyright infringement.

UPDATE: The site is now apparently down. I think between all six billion of us earth residents we can scrape together the bus fare so a posse of at least ten can get to Los Angeles in time to shit on Mr. Cruise’s front porch before breakfast. Once again, it’s amazing how some of the most “enlightened” minds in the world are so incapable of acting like grownups, or you know, taking a joke?

Additionally, I’ve been surfing around the web getting different opinions on the legal merit to the claims of what appear to be the ambulance chasers of planet Xenu, but the general consensus is that the complaint is bullshit. Whatever legal grounds they may have are incredibly shaky, given that this site openly admits it is satirical in nature--and even directs to the real scientology site, a generous gesture to say the least.

To revisit their open disclaimer at the top of their page:
(screencaps to be posted soon, I still have the page archived)

“YOU MUST UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CONTINUING: Obviously this website has ABSOLUTELY NO connection whatsoever with the Church of Scientology, it's affiliated organizations or, needless-to-say, Tom Cruise. It is designed for commentary and criticism within the limits of Free Speech. All content should be treated as opinion and all trademarks/copyrighted material herein are owned by their respective trademark owners. The Scientology site is here [link]. Thank you. You may continue...”
Explain to me how, then, these attorneys managed to bully the site into submission? It really is quite the spirit of L. Ron Hubbard, isn’t it? Next thing you know these attorneys will be calling for cease-and-desist on the grounds that the author of a detracting webpage is a Communist, or worse, a Jew.

Let’s stop these fuckers, shall we? First step, carrying on Scientomogy’s crusade to get the Church of Scientology’s tax-exemption status revoked.

Katie's dad furious about shotgun wedding

KATIE HOLMESBy Jeannette Walls
MSNBC
Updated: 2:58 a.m. ET Oct. 12, 2005

Tom Cruise’s future father-in-law apparently isn’t a happy camper.

Katie Holmes’s dad is said to be “very upset” because his unmarried daughter is pregnant with Cruise’s child. And, what’s more, the devoutly Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his daughter’s involvement in her husband-to-be’s controversial religion, Scientology.

“[Martin Holmes] was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie,” the forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes “a close friend” of Cruise as saying. “Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right thing and get married before any baby came along.” After scolding his daughter, according to the mag, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by declaring “You’re no good.”

“He said he and his wife were very upset by the news,” according to the source, “and demanded the pair get married quickly.”

Furthermore, a member of Christ the King Church, which the Holmes family belongs to, told L&S that Cruise and Holmes’ publicist, his sister Lee Anne DeVette, sent a letter to parishioners, asking them not to talk to reporters. Although a family friend told the mag that the Holmes family is thrilled by the news of a grandchild, they’re also concerned.

“It seemed like Katie was being controlled by Scientologists,” the friend told L&S. “Now they wonder if it’s a Rosemary’s Baby situation, where Katie is being groomed to provide Tom with a child.”

DeVette didn’t respond to The Scoop’s repeated requests for comment.

Tom Cruise: Cruising for a bruising with the paparazzi

By Jeannette Walls - MSNBC Updated: 2:49 a.m. ET Oct. 11, 2005

Tom Cruise is the latest celeb to be involved in a clash with paparazzi.

Cruise's bodyguard got into an altercation with photographers last week outside the Scientology Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles after paparazzi followed him to the center during a break in shooting "Mission Impossible."

The photographer swarmed around the center and a security guard went out to photograph the crowd of lensmen. But a Scientology spokesman disputes an account from ContactMusic that suggests that the incident got ugly when one of the paparazzi tried to swipe the guard's camera.

"The paparazzi were outside our property and our security guard went to photograph him out of concern for the safety of our parishioners," Scientology Celebrity Centre spokesman Greg LaClaire told The Scoop. "[Later] our security officer drove away and was at a stop light on a corner. While he was sitting at the stop light, the paparazzi jumped thru the passenger window and started beating him. Our security officer defended himself as best he could and then made a citizen arrest on felony charges of battery. He held [the paparazzi] until the police came."

Cruise's rep didn't respond to requests for comment.

As Katie Holmes Is Sucked Into Scientology, She Fires Publicist, Manager, Changes Agent...

Fox News | Roger Friedman | Posted October 7, 2005 12:08 PM

Katie Holmes fired her publicist of nearly eight years on Tuesday. During her conversation with Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, Holmes did not mention that she was pregnant by fiancé Tom Cruise. The next day, the news broke.

In short order since meeting Cruise in April, Holmes has now fired her manager, changed agents and discharged her publicist. All had been her longtime allies. And let’s not forget the broken engagement back in March to actor Chris Klein. That’s a lot of activity in less than a year.

The following was just posted today on a website - it makes for interesting reading; "In addition to being a nuclear physicist, L. Ron Hubbard was a pedatrician and thoughtfully gave his followers a baby food recipe that he picked up in Roman times when he was a Roman. As good Scientologiststs, Tom and Katie will need to feed their new bundle of joy per LRH or a trip to Ethics will be in store. First, skinny little Katie needs to realize that she, and all other modern women, are not good "Guernsey type" mothers, i.e. milk cows, according to Ron, and that is why Katie cannot breast feed her new baby:

Quote:

Breast feeding babies may have a nostalgic background, particularly to a Freudian oriented medico, but real breast milk again is usually a poor ration. Modern mothers smoke and sometimes drink. Smoking makes the milk very musty. Anyway, a nervous modern mother just can't deliver the right ration. Maybe it's the pace of the times or the breed, but there are few modern Guernsey-type mothers. So even without drinking or smoking, one should forget breast feeding. The foremost reason a baby doesn't do well is poor rations. And to remedy that, here is a formula one can use: 15 ounces of barley water 10 ounces of homogenized milk 3 ounces of corn syrup (As the Romans had honey, 2 ounces of honey may be used instead of corn syrup, if desired. Do not use lactose [a sugar found in milk, used in infant foods] as a substitute.) The amount of syrup should be varied - depending on the baby - some like it weak - some take it stronger. ref: http://members.chello.nl/mgormez/childabuse/barley.html The Romans did not have homogenized milk, so LRH must have used his OT powers to materialize homogenized milk from the future. This glaring bit of out-chronology aside, Katie, who is not a Guernsey Mother with a large and ample bosom that produces a sufficient ration of milk for baby, now has the recipe for baby food straight from Source. Honey can also cause death in babies as they cannot digest it. Never give a child honey until they are two years or older, and even then ask their pediatrician first. Ron's baby food formula is not just a good idea; it is a dire warning not to use hospital formulas or retail baby formulas: Quote:

Modern hospital formulas and patent mixes for babies are not just bad, they are criminal.

Katie is stuck: No breastfeeding, no, no, no. She is not a Geurnsey mom. And hospital formulas and patent mixes are criminal. Katie does not want to commit a crime per LRH or she will be RPF'd. So Katie has to give baby the Roman baby food per LRH. On another note, I must vigorously protest the fact that Tom Cruise does not practice the morality he so loves to preach. He divorced Nicole, his wife of ten years. They have two children and Tom tore the family apart. Why? I thought Scientology had all the answers to making a marriage work. The Scientology Marriage Solutions website claims that Scientology has all of the answers: http://www.marriagesolutions.org/

Quote:

Tom also divorced Mimi Rogers. That is two divorces for Tom. Statistically, that means his marriage to Katie is doomed to fail. Tom cannot hold together a marriage over time and has in fact failed twice. Where is the OT in that? After he failed to use Scientology teaching to keep his marriage to Nicole together and his family united, Tom next apparently had promiscuous, premarital sex with several actresses and then with Katie Holmes and got her pregnant. Tom and Katie have had promiscuous, premarital sex. Hubbard is hard on such promiscuity:

Quote:

"At 1.1 on the tone scale, we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the second dynamic. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism and irregular practices."

Tom, and now Katie, are role models as Scientologists and so they have sent a global message to young people that Scientology approves of promiscuity and premarital sex. Tom Cruise has had both promiscuous and premarital sex, played a violent professional killer in Collateral, and has two divorces under his belt. And yet he has the temerity to attack psychiatry. Tom's ethics are out. He is sending all of the wrong messages out about Scientology. Katie is now technically an unwed mother, another sad statistic of the moral decline of society that CCHR laments in its screeds:

Quote:

"Perhaps the most powerful of these enclaves is in the United States, where psychiatry influences many of the institutions that are simply taken for granted: politics, education, health and the court systems. The result of this unfortunate influence can be found by a quick glance around our nation's cities and towns: dramatic increases in illetracy, drug abuse, crime, teenage pregnancy, poverty and insanity. All concurrent with the presence and expansion of they psychiatric influence." [p. 223]

While Katie is not a teenager, she is only 26 and is pregnant by a leading name in Scientology and is unwed. KATIE HOLMES: UNWED PREGNANT SCIENTOLOGIST. WILL TOM BE PUT INTO A LOWER ETHICS CONDITION? OR DOES SCIENTOLOGY APPROVE OF TOM AND KATIE'S PROMISCUITY? If Katie needs painkillers during childbirth, forget it! She has to remain quiet. She also is forbidden to use breathing techniques to help her per Scientology: Quote:

"Kelly Preston will be screaming in silent agony when she gives birth to hubby John Travolta's baby later this month. Her only relief through hours of excruciating labor will be to bite her lips and clench her husband's hand. The staunch Scientologist plans to follow her church's teachings about childbirth - which include a strict no-noise policy in the delivery room and a ban on painkillers. Even natural childbirth breathing techniques are forbidden. "'It's called quiet birth,' says Travolta of the Scientology procedure, which is used because L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology's founder, believed excessive noise can 'be the cause of irrational fears, compulsions and unexplainable behavior' later in a baby's life. 'The birth is for the child and for the mother,' explains John. 'Moans and groans are one thing. It's words that have the most potential. Any people saying negative verbiage could adversely affect the baby later on.' "Everyone in the delivery room--including doctors--are encouraged to keep as quiet as possible. 'The child will experience pain as it's being born, but to have all these people around saying all kinds of things makes it worse. As he grows up and hears these same words, it will stimulate the memory of the pain of birth.'" Katie will not be able to speak to her baby for the first week after it is born because LRH said so. A new baby's brain needs to start wiring itself to higher levels the second it is born, and mother-baby bonding are crucial. But Katie can't talk to her baby and neither can Tom. Hush for a week. What happens if Katie suffers from severe postpartum depression so severe that, God forbid, she is suicidal? Tom Cruise has taken a harsh stand against Brooke Shields. If Katie has suicidal feelings from postpartum depression, she will only be allowed vitamins and exercise. No anti-deppresants in the Cruise household! That would make Tom and Scientology look stupid and so, rather than getting Katie on anti-deppressants and giving her the help she needs, she will be put into the Introspection Rundown if she has postpartum depression. She will be isolated in a room like Lisa Mc Pherson and even Tom will not be allowed to see her. Katie will remain locked up until her CS decides she is better. If Katie gets put into the Introspection Rundown for postpartum depression and Tom has to leave to go make a movie, the Sea Org childcare system is a wonderful place to leave baby. From Jesse Prince:

Quote:

Just looking at it now, those children were so under-nourished, just not whole, complete children, because L. Ron Hubbard figures barley water is better than milk. . . I've seen those children, 15 to 20 of them in a filthy room, filthy carpet, food everywhere, and playing. If one of them got out of line, they'd just lock them in a room and let them scream itself to death, or scream itself to sleep. . . They make them do what's called rocks and shows, where if they do something that they weren't told to do, they have to do sit-ups, push-ups from the cradle they are punished. From the cradle the children are punished. Quote:

Former Scientologists who served as crew together with Hubbard in the early years remember a five years old deaf and mute child being locked up in the chain-locker. Hubbard said she was not to leave the chain locker until she completed the formula by writing her name. Another witness claims that a three-year-old was once put in the locker. Quote:

"Warrior" describes unhealthy living conditions and neglect of children From: Warrior <warrior@electrotex.com> Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology,alt.religion.christianity Subject: Scientology lied to me over and over for years Date: 23 May 1997 17:38:56 -0700 Message-ID: <5m5db0$cgh@drn.zippo.com> In 1975 I joined the Sea Organization of the "Church" of Scientology. That turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life. I didn't realize it at the time of signing my contract, but the Sea Org Recruiter (Steve Grant) from ASHO Day had lied to me about every aspect of the Sea Organization's living conditions. 1) He lied about the facilities for child care (at that time referred to as the Cadet Org). I was told that there was a day care facility to look after my child, and that upon my arrival in ASHO, my child would be placed in this day care center while I worked. Upon my arrival to the Sea Org in LA, I discovered that the Cadet Org (on Melrose Avenue at that time) was absolutely filthy. It was understaffed. Many babies (infants and toddlers) wandered around in the lobby, apparently under the care of the *receptionist*!! I was disgusted. This "day care" facility was obviously in violation of health codes. What I saw was utter neglect, filth and stench. Several babies were crawling on the tiled floor. They were filthy and in need of having their diapers changed. And at the time that I walked into the building and into the lobby, there was *no one* even there to keep their eyes on the children. Sorry to rain on Tom and Katie's good news of a baby on the way, but Tom is a hypocrite and needs to be called on it. Tom has two divorces, broke up his family with Nicole, and was promiscuous and slept around. He had premarital sex with Katie and is sending a message to people everywhere that Scientologists can get as many divorces as they want, be promiscuous, pretend to be violent killers in movies, and engage in generally whatever the hell insane and aberrated conduct they want to, all the while attacking psychiatry. I guess I am missing something here. I thought Scientology was moral, kept marriages and families together, and decried the moral and social decline of drugs, sexual promiscuity, depictions of violence, and illiteracy. When will Scientology hold Tom Cruise accountable for his atrocious and hypocritical behavior? Or is Tom a chosen one who gets to break all of Scientology's rules? Katie, take your baby and get out now! Scientology will want your child to go to a non-school, skip college, and go on staff with Sea Org at sixteen for $20 per week. Katie, is that what you want for your baby? Get out now. It is too late for Tom, but you can save yourself and your baby!

Seems I'm "fair game" alright...

Apart from Ava's numerous email's and faxes about their trademark claims re http://www.scientomogy.info (which I do not consider harassment), it seems the local chapter of the Co$ has decided to begin a non stop barrage of phone calls, emails, and visits to my home - at any hour day or night.

The phone calls are always from a prepaid cellular phone and they've used plenty of different numbers, normally at night from 8pm till midnight. The first few I was stupid enough to answer but now they just call and call and call.

When I did speak to "a church member here in Auckland" he kept insisting over and over that we meet to talk about my "vendetta" with the church... I explained that my site is about Mr Cruise not the church and that was extremely clear - and all correspondence was to be through my lawyers and Ava - there was nothing else to say.

Then the visits to my home started. Now I have security cameras stationed at my front door and driveway entrance so I have never answered the door and therefore cannot be certain it is the church... but they have my home address and in 8 months of living here never had unsolicited callers - especially almost daily! Though when I do meet these guys at least I'll know them from the footage!

Interesting thing is... Last census showed only approx. 200 Scientologists in the whole of NZ!!

So, I wonder what's next???


 

Faxes from SCIENTOLOGY lawyers now online....
