CCHR heists domain used by mental health group
ReligionNewsBlog.com • Saturday March 15, 2003
- Web denizens searching for the official internet homepage of the World Federation for Mental Health may be in for a shock if they’re not careful with their typing.
The venerable health lobby group has had an established web presence at www.wfmh.org domain since 1998, according to archive.org records.
But on June 10, 2001, just weeks before the WFMH was scheduled to hold its annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, George Mentis, executive director of Scientology’s rabid anti-psychiatry mouthpiece Citizens Commission on Human Rights registered the nearly identical www.wfmh.net.
CCHR is Scientology‘s ironically-named front group – one of many such organizations, and one of several Scientology entities engaged in the hate- and harassment activities condoned and encouraged in the cult’s scriptures.
The ScientologyWatch.org item concludes by saying:
- One thing is certain, however – CCHR Canada president George Mentis may feel smug for sneaking the domain registration past the WFMH, but he should also watch his back — figuratively speaking, of course.
According to the latest records from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, cchr.ca has yet to be registered. Perhaps the WFMH would be interested in returning the favour, and nabbing it for themselves.
Indeed, cchr.ca has now been registered – but not by the CCHR hate group.
