Just realized we need a thread where news items can be posted.

Here is the first;  (Have a vomit bag handy)

Church of Scientology co-sponsors UN summit

Human Rights Department of the Church of Scientology co-sponsored the fifth annual international human rights summit in New York, aimed at getting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights applied by nations across the world .

SPONSORED BY Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) and the Human Rights Department of the Church of Scientology International, the summit was a packed series of events all aimed at getting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNUDHR) actually applied by nations across the world -- and the celebration of the 60th anniversary of its adoption.

Youth representatives from 27 nations joined more than 1,000 human rights advocates, religious leaders, governmental officials and artists at the fifth Annual International Human Rights summit in New York last weekend. The event was co-sponsored by the Human Rights department of the Church of Scientology.

?There are over 300,000 children involved in armed conflicts as child soldiers in African and other countries. There are 800,000 children trafficked across borders every year in an international sex slave trade that is one of the most lucrative black markets in the world. You only have to read the news to see the need for the declaration to be enforced,? said Tracie Morrow, the human rights youth coordinator of the Church of Scientology International.

For the rest....

Protesters Invade Katie's Broadway Debut

(Sept. 19) - About 30 anti-Scientology protesters stood outside Katie Holmes' 'All My Sons' Broadway debut on Sept. 18. They used the publicity to voice their opinions about the dangers of Scientology, and weren't protesting Katie Holmes or her play. In fact, some were trying to save Katie from Scientology's grasp. While we aren't taking sides, some of the signs were quite funny. Check out some of the best ones:

Scientology thinks it`s so important to free people from suppression
that it suppresses people in the process.

Listen to the video testimony of a resident of L ron Hubbard Way
(Up one side of Big Blue in Hollywood.)
And a Free Speech advocate.

I expect their justification for it all is that everybody else on the street who isn't a Scientologist is merely a lowly wog and their movement is sooo much more worthy than the wogs' causes. Way to prove themselves as humanitarians =|

This story made it onto the California TV news.

Scientology rep says we want to "work it out"
Translation. We want to "get this story out of the news."

And by the way...
Larry Brennan`s talk at the Hamburg conference
is now up on youtube.
Here is part one of four.

Amy Winehouse approached by Scientology.

It seems Celebrity center Int. contacted Amy
about their NarCONon program.
NarCONon has a 6% success rate.
Slightly worse than doing nothing about the problem at all.

Please be true.

Womans day...
http://womansday.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=640960

Katie Holmes has reportedly dropped a bombshell on her husband Tom Cruise by announcing her intention to quit Scientology.

Buoyed by her new-found independence in New York, Katie finally took the plunge and told Tom of her plans to turn her back on the religion after beginning to question some of its rules and practices.

Now friends say that the star couple's marriage may be facing a crisis as strict Scientologist Tom contemplates having to tone down the rules he has reportedly laid down to raise daughter Suri, 2.

"Katie got bold and told Tom that she's ready to leave the religion," claims a friend. "Tom is worried and now their marriage may have to change in a lot of ways."

According to some former Scientology members, anyone who leaves the church must be disconnected from current members, including their spouses and children…

If it is true there WILL be consequences.

I don't like to hear of any marriage break ups especially where children are involved.  However in this instance I will make an exception!

Run Katie run!

This is the only way that Suri has any chance of a 'normal' upbringing.  I hope it's true

The Sydney morning Herald has picked up
the Womans day story about Katie Holmes...

"Finally, WD says, in the gravest of tones, that Katie Holmes has announced her intention to quit Scientology. Such a decision would, the magazine says, require her to "be disconnected from current members, including their spouses and children". Stating what seems the crushingly obvious, David Graham, a "former high-ranking Scientologist", tells WD that such a situation "could put a significant strain on their relations".

Well the Women's Day mag is now out on the shelves for everyone to see.  I wonder if the scios will try to buy every copy to bury it?

That's the penalty for deliberately recruiting celebs.  When it goes wrong everyone knows about it.  How much damage has Tom C. and Katie done the scio movement??  I would definitely say more harm than good.

Silly scientologits - can't get anything right.

Go Borat.

As Newspaper "Kasakhstan Today" reported on the 8th of October: The leaders of the COS in Kasakhstan are facing trial, started by the Commitee of National Security.

For the crimes that are filed under "section 190" of the "Criminal Codex" they are facing up to 5 years of imprisonment.

"According to the investigation, members of the organisation were engaging themselves in unlicensed educational and medical activities, and getting a substantial profit, which is currently non-taxable", - reported the press-service.

Today, with the approval of the head prosecutor of City of Almaty they carried out "searches" in all of the known properties of COS.
Found and confiscated a large number of files and archives containing personal information of confidential nature liked to people who are connected to the church in any way, as well as imported "Medicine" which was illegally brought into the country and was not approved by Kasakhstan government.
Experts concluded that using those drugs can cause serious damage and health problems.

According to the DNKB (kinda like the kasakh fbi) they sent all the financial records of COS to experts in order to estimate the damage made to the state.

The fun will proceed in court after experts finish.

Just another example of silly scientology

don't they realise that these countries allow only one secret police - theirs!!

Having lived in Russia for a time (yes it's true) the last thing I would EVER do is be involved with scientology.  Talk about asking for trouble.

Just another example of how dumb dm really is.  He could have asked me - I would have set him straight!
