Scientology’s reclusive ‘president,’ 82-year-old Heber Jentzsch, tells a niece he’s doing fine

  Tammy Clark tells us she sent a letter to her uncle Heber Jentzsch in November, hoping to find out how he’s doing as he turned 82. This week, she received a reply.

But she’s suspicious about it.

A new ex-Scientologist memoir provides a journey through extortion in the rank-and-file

  Books by ex-Scientologists keep arriving, and we received one this week that we didn’t even know was coming at all, from an ex-Scientologist we hadn’t spoken to before.

It’s only April, but we already have a leading contender for Scientology mother of the year!

  We’ve run a number of stories in the past about Scientologists giving up their children to the organization’s staff and Sea Org, which can be brutal places to work for almost no pay.

[He is risen?]

Secrecy is one of the things that most makes Scientology what it is. Although we know plenty about the origins of Scientology, its underlying materials, and much of its controversial history thanks to countless media exposes and court cases and defections, Scientologists themselves are still very tight-lipped about what Scientology is and […]

Scientology’s secret vaults get their star turn on the new TV network, and it’s nutty!

[Scientology’s time capsules can survive a nuclear holocaust!]

Last night, the show about Scientology’s “Archival Project” aired, giving outsiders a pretty amazing look at some of the inner workings making sure Scientology’s wisdom can survive natural disasters and a nuclear holocaust.
