Why the IRS will likely do nothing about Mormon and Scientology illegal slush funds

 Monday night, the Washington Post uncorked a stunning investigation based on a whistleblower’s confidential report to the IRS.

For $100, Scientologist sorcerer will share secret of living to 150 (and we have the secret!)

[Rey Robles on CNN’s Believer]

You might remember that we were not very impressed with Reza Aslan’s short-lived Believer series that aired in 2017 on CNN, in particular its dishonest episode about Scientology. Admitting that he had “a soft spot” for Scientology, Aslan pretended that the teeny tiny “indie” movement of Scientologists was so potent, it []

No, RadarOnline did not discover a new underground bunker at Scientology’s Gold Base

[Circled, the non-scandalous non-story’s location]

We want to start out by saying that we have had a fine relationship with RadarOnline in the past. Sure, it’s the online sister to the National Enquirer and very tabloidy, but it has employed people who were passionate about getting Scientology stories right and who enjoyed working with []

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard has some ideas about your ‘eternity’

 The new Source magazine is here, and as usual it’s just one big advertisement that’s meant to convince Scientologists to drop everything, write a big series of checks, and go to the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida for Scientology’s upper level []
