For several years, we’ve posted fliers from Scientology’s many events that are put on by barnstorming “OT” ambassadors out to sell something to compliant church members. But it’s not very often that we get a report on what it’s like to attend such a gathering.
A couple of years ago, we were fortunate to hear […]
We had a lot of fun on Monday revisiting perhaps the high point in the careers of Scientology leader David Miscavige and his actor-lieutenant, Tom Cruise, when they opened a new church in Madrid in 2004. Since then, the two have been battered and bruised with years of brutal press accounts of how Miscavige physically […]
Jeffrey Augustine continues with part two of his podcast with Aaron Smith-Levin. He sent us this synopsis…
In Part 2, Aaron Smith-Levin continues his fascinating and wide-ranging excursion into the world of Scientology from the eyes of a Sea Org member. Aaron opens by describing how he realized that the highly dysfunctional operating conditions of […]
Back on July 2, your proprietor asked his colleagues for some help. Star magazine had announced that Tom Cruise was leaving Scientology, and we thought it was awfully convenient for the story to come out just a few weeks before the press circus around Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation starts up.

One of our tipsters forwarded to us a great discovery for the lovelorn, and we wanted to share it with you.

We like to keep an eye on litigation involving the Church of Scientology, so we were interested to see the news yesterday that a woman in British Columbia has filed a lawsuit in order to get back about $86,000 that she says she’s owed by the church.
But then we got Lorna Carleton on the […]
Once again we’re featuring Chris Shelton today. He’s one of the more recent defectors from Scientology’s Sea Org, and he’s been doing a great service explaining his experience, and Scientology itself, in a series of videos.
He sent us a new video that addresses an issue we’ve also talked about with Jefferson Hawkins and Jon […]
