                              sCIENTOLOGY's digs IS LAP OF LUXURY

Published 15 May 2014 02:30 AM

Purification saunas, touch therapy beds and exercise machines. It might sound like a description for a nice spa weekend but it's really the inside of the Church of Scientology's newly refurbished $14m headquarters in Sydney.


More than 2,500 people attended its recent opening which was performed by church leader David Miscavige.

But where does the money come from? The premises includes a 'Hall of Fame' honour roll listing names of followers according to how much money they have donated.

Donating $1m gives a person the status of 'New Civilisation Builder', while coughing up half a million are 'gold humanitarians'.

                                             Scientology cruises to a surplus



I don’t know whether it was waiting for a day of reckoning or what, but the Church of Scientology isn’t getting any better at lodging its accounts on time.

Church of Scientology Mission of Dublin, the company behind the movement’s Irish arm, this month filed accounts with the CRO for 12 months to April 2011.

The three-year-old financial statements were actually signed off by the directors in June 2013, according to the date of its directors report.

Xenu only knows why they waited another year to lodge them. The company has been listed for strike-off three times in the last three years for filing late returns.

The church’s income for the 12-month period more than halved to €115,000, highlighting the negative impact the recession had on any organisation that relies on fund raising.

It still managed to record a surplus, however, because of an exceptional gain in the accounts of €326,000. The gain is described “loan forgiveness”, which is quite apt for a church when you think about it.

Interestingly, the accounts state that all church members “undertake to contribute to the assets of the company in the event of it being wound up, while they are members or within one year thereafter, for the payment of debts”.

                                               Judge warns of huge legal bill in Church of Scientology dispute


Parties in acrimonious High Court case urged to be ‘reasonable’ with each other

A judge has warned warring members and former members of the Church of Scientology to “sit down and be reasonable” with each other if they want to avoid a massive legal costs bill.
Scientologists Zabrina Collins and Michael O’Donnell have won High Court orders restraining former Scientologists Peter Griffiths and John McGhee from harassing, assaulting or intimidating them in work they do for their church.
Mr Griffiths, of Teeling Street, Ballina, Co Mayo, in turn has sued Ms Collins for alleged defamation of character. Ms Collins, the daughter of wrongly convicted Co Donegal publican Frank Shortt, has an address at Parnell Square West, Dublin.
Judge Jacqueline Linnane addressed all of the parties in the Circuit Civil Court, which is now handling the case, and told them the clock had already started ticking on a mounting legal bill both on High Court and Circuit Court costs.
“I would have thought that a prudent manner of dealing with this would be for people to be reasonable and sit down and talk about it,” she said. “Don’t be surprised if there is a massive legal bill at the end of the day if notice is not taken of what this court is saying.”
She said the costs bill had started “tick, tick ticking” and warned all of the parties to hear her words.
“Be reasonable and try to reach a solution here to save some money. You can reach an accommodation that is acceptable to each side, ” she said.
Mr McGhee, of Armstrong Grove, Clara, Co Offaly, and Mr Griffiths, through his barrister Seamas O’Tuathail, SC, gave undertakings they would not interfere with Ms Collins or Mr O’Donnell, a marketing consultant of Cherrywood Lawn, Clondalkin, Dublin.
Mr O’Tuathail, who appeared with John Smith and solicitor Cormac O’Callaigh, said the undertakings would continue until February 2nd when the linked defamation and injunctive proceedings would be heard.
Barrister Frank Beatty, counsel for Ms Collins and Mr O’Donnell, had told a pre-Christmas sitting of the High Court that Ms Collins had been intimidated by the two former church members as she handed out anti-drugs leaflets outside the Church of Scientology premises in Middle Abbey Street, Dublin.
He said Ms Collins and Mr O’Donnell were scared and frightened “and they should be”. They had been constantly harassed and assaulted by Mr Griffiths and Mr McGhee, he said.
Mr O’Tuathail told the court his client denied having done anything wrong. The two cases have been adjourned for hearing until February 2nd.

                                            Scientology Dublin Conference interview with Victoria Britton in tears

Feb. 6, 2015, in Dublin Ireland, a few minutes ago many tears flowed as a mother, Victoria Britton, told her story about the death of her son, Kyle Brennan at the hands of Scientology. The interview was ‘Live Streamed’ around the globe with comments in the chat room: “I am so moved, I am speechless; love to Victoria and thank you for your courage. Wow, very moving! Thanks so much for sharing this with the world. We have to take the Church down; they cannot get away with this kind of stuff.”

Ex-Scientologists, critics, and public flew into Dublin from San Francisco, Virginia, Great Britain, and elsewhere as guest speakers and to listen to the horrific and emotional stories from those who were abused, held captive, and others who are seeking justice. Numerous people pitched in and donated to make this Dublin 2015 ‘Enough is Enough’ event happen....

                                      Dianetics (scientology) Exposed and removed from event.

Published on Jul 14, 2015
Scientologists lied as to their identity to procure a space at a show where they thought they could recruit members. Show organisers were made aware and the scientologists were promptly ejected.

                                                 The film Scientologists didn't want you to see...


As Sky defies the highly litigious and combative organisation to air the most-talked about documentary in years, Eva hall asks what all the fuss is about?
