    It should be called "Church of Satan"! Revoke their tax-exemption now! I pray that pro-life activists will start to picket their so-called "churches" with anti-abortion signs.

    I pray that people who are witnessing crimes like these have the courage to put a stop to them; that people who live in fear of violence or blackmail of this kind have the courage and wisdom to leave, and that we will welcome their return to society at large.

    Anonymous has been trying to tell you this for going on 2 years now. Nice to see you're finally listening.

    Thank-you for reminding me. The article failed to mention "fair game", the standard way to handle Scientology's enemies and critics. "May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."

    Great article. I'm glad that the crimes of this cult are coming to light at a startling rate. Even though we continue to protest at the door step of this cult, it seems that it's undoing will be it's own practices made public.

    The public needs to be outraged. This cult needs to stop it's hurtful practices.

    Thank you so much for exposing these people. I was a Scientologist for 16 years and I have come to see that it is an evil cult. After leaving I have met many women who were forced to have abortions by their Scientology seniors. This practice is only one of many human rights abuses waged on Scientologists around the world. Again, thank you for exposing these people to the world.

    Two women, former staff members of scientology's Sea Org, are suing over coerced abortions. They seek injunctions prohibiting any further such behaviour. Claire Headley and Laura DeCrescenzo aren't Catholic, but this is something we can all agree on. Thanks, Randy.

    As I understand it, Scientology's mandated personnel regulations (written by L. Ron Hubbard himself, and thus, "scriptural") make about as perfect a means there is to face charges of Human Trafficking -- in the U.S. and abroad. Amnesty International in the U.K. is reportedly investigating, however, I believe this deserves a stronger, timelier response.

    Scientology does harm to real religion when it pretends to be a religion to avoid paying taxes on all the books and courses they sell. Many Christians get tricked into defending Scientology because they want to defend religion in general.

    Do not be swayed by Scientology's lies. It's a dangerous cultish bookstore selling books by one man: their savior L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer from the 1950's. Scientology is not a religion.

    Thank you for posting this very well put together piece. I had no idea Scientology is as bad as it is. I wonder why they have not been investigated recently.
