Church of Scientology violates Federal Law

FreedomToThink writes "This is a very long story I'm sure the editors will have fun with, but I couldn't see how to cut it down at all.

On the eve of the Ides of March protest, from the source of the recent 'Anonymous' submitted CCHR leak on wikileaks, comes this message

"Dear $cientology,You attempt injunctions.I respond.Shall we continue the game? Much Love, DEEP CLAM"

Included was yet another PDF this time including yet more emails leaked from a Church of Scientology front group.

See below. Everyone in Clearwater MUST vote. Every vote will be needed to be
sure Hibbard gets re-elected. The alternative is Rita Garvey who is an SP.

Lunch with your preferred Presidential candidates for a high price?

ONE SEAT LEFT

I have arranged a private one-hour luncheon with Ron Paul on 11/28 in St.
Pete when he will be in town for the CNN/YouTube Republican debate.

This luncheon is reserved for $1000+ donors to Ron Paul's presidential
campaign. 19 people so far have paid and confirmed and will have the honor
and pleasure of having lunch and communicating with Ron Paul directly.

Go the the HELP committee website. The link is here.
http://help.senate.gov/About.html
Here you will see the names of the Committee members on the left hand
side
of the page. Please go to the individual websites of the Republican =
members
(this will take just a bit of leg work on your part by putting their =
name
into Google) and calling their office or sending a fax to them (email is =
the
least effective) stating your opposition to S. 1375 The Mother's Act.


Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501(c)(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

An OCMB (Operation Clambake Message Board)regular adds :

I downloaded myself a copy and started looking through them. I found an interesting one on pages 47-48.
http://rapidshare.com/files/99292051/CCHRLeak3.pdf.html

Karin Pouw of OSA of CofS writes a message.
It's forwarded by Michael Genung. He's the guy who runs ACSR, Association for Citizens Sociel Reform. http://www.citizensforsocialreform.org/ ["CSR Background and Philosopy: CSR was founded in 2001 by a group of Scientologists and other like-minded individuals concerned with the escalating social ills in society. CSR's purpose is to work with in the field of public policy to bring about more effective and humane solutions to these social ills of illiteracy, criminality substance abuse and general decay of character."]

Then it's forwarded by Doyle Mills, of LEAF fame (Letters to the Editor Attack Force).
Then it's forwarded by Mary C. (possibly one of two Mary C's I'm thinking of, but unsure).
Then it's forwarded by Mike Kaplan, another person who runs an email list and forwards CCHR type stuff to CofS members.

If that ain't stringing a line from the CofS to CCHR and the CofS front group ("grassroots") movements, then I don't know what is!


Apologies in advance as the Enturbulation servers will not be up to a slashdotting so the Coral Cache link is here Enturbulation Discussion (already cached for you)

ANYONE CAN REPORT TAX FRAUD DIRECTLY TO THE IRS : http://www.irs.gov/compliance/enforcement/article/0,,id=106778,00.html It does require that you print out and mail in an actual hardcopy, but it does not require you to identify yourself.

Ides of March? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#22757054)

Somewhere in a dark room an editor is thinking... 'hmmm, no, not two Scientology stories in a month, let alone a couple of days...but.....but.... this could be one of the biggest stories of the decade if it really is the legal downfall of the Church of Scientology at the hands of an Internet revolution, the first real Stand Alone Complex. what to do.'

Oh come on, it's the Ides of March.

It's PROTEST DAY!!

Even wikipedia is in on it check out todays featured article! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page [wikipedia.org]

Tom Cruise gets in on the action (2, Interesting)

FreedomToThink (1254724) | more than 6 years ago | (#22778986)

Anecdotal at best but amusing nonetheless :

"Tom Cruise says it is the duty of the Church of Scientology to to be active in electing the president of the United States. Tom says the Church will be actively campaigning when the conventions are over."

The IAS Event represents OUR 4th Dynamic products as Scientologists! We are
reshaping the destiny of Earth - what is happening with our anti-psych;
anti-drug; human rights; VM and and WTH campaigns are impinging and changing
world conditions like NEVER BEFORE. This event is the next chapter.

On the anti-psych front: Over 260,000 CCHR dvd's have now been sent to the
screens of mayors,
legislators, government officials, attorney generals and other public at
large.

More than 28,000 civil suits have been filed for adverse rections of
psychiatric drugs including filings from attorney generals in 7 different
states.

While it has cost the drug companies in excess of 2 billion dollars from
civil suits alone, that is just a drop in the bucket, because with 65
billion dollars in lost market shares, their own stockholders are now suing.

Psychiatric pharmaceuticals (the largest source of psychiatric revenue) are
now taking more fire in the courts than any other industry on Earth!

Attend the IAS 23rd Anniversary event on Friday 2nd November.
Doors open at 6pm, Event starts at 7pm.

Attened the Weekend Seminar on Saturday 3rd November
in the Flag Auditorium at 1pm.

Dear Anonymous,

I gave you:

Within the next week, we expect the Energy and Commerce bill to go for a floor vote in the U.S. House of Representatives. So again, thank you for your participation and stand by for more legislative alerts this coming week.

Subject: URGENT! NEW ALERT! CONGRESS VOTES TOMORROW

Very strong amendments to the House FDA reform bill are being introduced tomorrow! Even if you have emailed Congress within the last few days, right now your FAXES are urgently needed. This can all be done electronically -- the system is set up to fax for you! There is extreme urgency in this as the amendment will be voted on tomorrow!

So even if you have emailed before, if you take 45 seconds a fax will be sent from you to your member of Congress and key committee members in support of vital FDA reform legislation. This can be done in one quick, easy action from you, and is of vital importance.

Click here to FAX your representative

Bold emphasis in the above is mine, but it would seem to imply they have an automated fax lobbying service.

The FDA Reform Bill in question http://olpa.od.nih.gov/tracking/110/house_bills/session1/hr-3580.asp [nih.gov] :
"September 20, 2007
Compromise FDA Reform Bill Passes House, Adds $225 Million In User Fees For Drug Safety

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 405-7 Sept. 19 to adopt compromise FDA reform legislation that increases prescription drug user fees by $225 million above the level agreed to earlier by FDA and drug manufacturers for fiscal years 2008-2012."

It has been commented also that 'everything above needs to needs to go to Americans United for Separation of Church and State: http://www.au.org/ [au.org]
email them on americansunited@au.org '
(that goes for all of the CCHR leaks, not just 4.1 )

And finally I'll add one strong reaction from one of the "anti-Church of Scientology Organization" campaigners (not anti religion, no bigotry, just objectivity ):

PART OF THE FUCKING FDA REFORM BILL IS GOING TO MEAN THAT THE FDA WILL BE BANNING FURTHER MANUFACTURE OF GRANDFATHERED DRUGS.

THESE GRANDFATHERED DRUGS WERE ALL DRUGS THAT WERE ALREADY BEING PRESCRIBED BY DOCTORS BEFORE THE FDA BECAME AN AGENCY. WHEN THE FDA WAS FORMED, ALL THESE MEDS THAT WERE ALREADY BEING PRODUCED AND PRESCRIBED WERE ALLOWED TO JUST CONTINUE "AS IS."

UNTIL NOW.

THIS IS PARTICULARLY NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART BECAUSE I MYSELF TAKE A GRANDFATHERED DRUG THAT WILL BE BANNED FROM MANUFACTURE. THIS IS THE ONLY DRUG THAT WORKS FOR ME. IT'S ALSO THE ONLY DRUG MANY PEOPLE CAN TAKE FOR THIS CONDITION: THE SYNTHETIC MEDICATIONS DON'T WORK FOR SOME PEOPLE.

SO, I HAVE YET ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT REASON TO HATE $CIENTOLOGY RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS ACTUALLY ANOTHER CAUSE OF MINE TO TRY AND FIGHT THE BAN OF THESE DRUGS.

SORRY FOR THE RANT BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY, MANY OTHER ASPECTS OF THIS REFORM BILL THAT WILL AFFECT A LOT OF PEOPLE...NOT JUST MYSELF. THE BAN OF THE GRANDFATHERED DRUGS ARE ONLY A SMALL PART OF THIS FDA REFORM.

excuse my cussing: fuck you, $cientology. cockroaches have a better rep than you do at this point. no offense to cockroaches.
