Our friend and fellow journalist Mark Ebner alerted us last night to a fairly mindblowing statement posted on Twitter on Monday afternoon. The Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California announced that it is donating $10,000 to the Scientology front group Youth for Human Rights, and in the name of actress Jenna Elfman.
Scientologist Ken Kramer (pictured) is on a mission. For several years, he’s run a website, psychsearch.net, that uses public record searches to collect stories about psychiatrists who have broken the law in some way.
That fits with Scientology’s hatred for psychiatry, embodied in its most goofy front group, Citizens Commission on Human Rights, which […]
Yesterday we broke the news that Cathriona White, Jim Carrey’s on-again, off-again girlfriend who killed herself Monday, had been taking Scientology courses for four or five years. Her friends told us that when she began dating Carrey again earlier this year, she had recently finished the “Purification Rundown” course at the Hollywood Celebrity […]
Once again, Google has gone to bat for someone we’ve written about here at the Underground Bunker, and once again, it’s for very sneaky reasons.

Once again, Jonny Jacobsen is our man on the scene in Europe, where news of Scientology’s infiltration of a Swiss national organization broke in the local press. Give us the details, Jonny…

We asked Mark Bunker to mosey on down to Fort Harrison Avenue yesterday to get a gander at the new storefronts Scientology opened up this week.

Last May, in a small Arkansas town, a sheriff’s deputy arrived at a large house to help an ambulance crew with an unusual call.
He went into the basement of the house, which had a ground floor entry, and on the stairway leading to the kitchen on the next floor there was a […]
We’re looking forward to getting reports on how a hearing goes today in McAlester, Oklahoma. Attorney Gary Richardson (right) is trying to convince the state to turn over a report which could be devastating to Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon. The hearing starts at 2:30 pm Eastern time, and we’re hoping to get a report […]
Even as more people leave and Scientology continues inexorably to dwindle, the church never gives up trying to spread its message, sometimes in subtle ways.
The latest example is a campaign we learned about before Scientology has even been able to launch it. It’s the newest ad from the Florida chapter of its anti-psychiatry front […]
Back in 2011, when Rupert Murdoch was still paying for his iPad adventure, The Daily, a journalist named Benjamin Carlson did a really fine two-part series on the ultimate Scientology school, “Delphian” in Oregon. We thought it was clever that he referred to the high school as Scientology’s version of “Hogwarts.”
Although The Daily no […]
