Consumer Alert: Scientology

Documentation of Scientology’s hate and harassment practices, which are based on the organization’s own scriptures.

“Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.”
– Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, quoted at What judges have to say about Scientology

Seven town volunteer ministers flew out from Saint Hill Manor on Sunday to join 43 fellow ministers from the US, South Africa and India.

Another team of 16 will fly out on Friday to help the victims of the disaster.

Graeme Wilson, of the Church of Scientology’s community programmes, is co-ordinating the church’s relief efforts in India and Sri Lanka.

He said: “We are working with many other groups and religions both in this country and in the affected areas and we are also training up others in the practical methods used by our volunteer ministers.”
