Why no one should ever join Scientology’s ‘Sea Org’

Frequent contributor Jeffrey Augustine told us he was surprised to see how some of the language in Scientology’s latest court filing — in the Laura DeCrescenzo lawsuit — dovetailed in such interesting ways with the recent explorations he’s been making into the church’s legal underpinnings. We told him to let that take him where it […]

Why is the press so timid about outing Scientology’s many front groups?

We’re very happy to see a small publication like the Santa Clarita Express in Southern California expose a Scientology front group for what it is.
