  • Don’t ‘say no to drugs’ in Germany! Rehab clinic masks illegal Scientology church

    Ad stands for rehab facilities with the particular slogan ‘Say no to drugs – say yes to life’ in Germany are under serious suspicion of being nothing more than a Scientology recruitment scheme, police warn. The sect is illegal in Germany. The enigmatic group, which believes our human souls have alien beginnings, does not enjoy the same legal status everywhere. In the United States it boasts dozens of Hollywood A-listers among its members and biggest donors. Not so in Germany, where the religious sect has been deemed “unconstitutional” since 1997 by domestic security, despite its existence there since the 1970s....

    From the time he was a child in Peru, the Mormon Church instilled in Jose Loayza the conviction that he and millions of other Native Americans were descended from a lost tribe of Israel that reached the New World more than 2,000 years ago. "We were taught all the blessings of that Hebrew lineage belonged to us and that we were special people," said Loayza, now a Salt Lake City attorney. ... Loayza said, his faith was shaken and his identity stripped away by DNA evidence showing that the ancestors of American natives came from Asia, not the Middle East....

    It is beyond evident America that there is a massive psychopolitical operation underway in our nation. We are being beaten down on a daily basis by people who would have you believe that you are what's wrong with the world. Our kids are being overwhelmed with inappropriate sex education at very early ages, those who believe in the right to life are considered the radicals while those claiming the right to kill their unborn children are being praised. We have a president seeking to make his own people helpless while funding Islamic radicals overseas, the definition of racism has been...

    Getting teens to sign up for the Affordable Care Act and learn how to obtain contraceptives through Obamacare, was the focus of an event hosted by the D.C. Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy at the Church of Scientology’s National Affairs Office in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, a gathering that featured officials from the Health and Human Services Department and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) . Wilma Robinson, deputy director of the HHS Office of Adolescent Health, said she was attending to explain “the impact of the Affordable Care Act on adolescents,” which she defined as girls and boys...

    An online activism website has collected over 2,600 signatures within a few days to petition Apple Inc. for the removal of the iPhone app of a Christian ministry dealing with homosexuality. Exodus International, which bills itself as the world’s largest Christian ministry dealing with homosexual issues, reported that a petition by the LGBT rights group Truth Wins Out on is quickly gaining support. In less than 24 hours, the petition was able to gather more than 1,300 signatures. Truth Wins Out contends that the app conveys the ministry’s “hateful and bigoted” message. “They claim to offer ‘freedom from homosexuality...

    "There's an app for that." The catchphrase coined by Apple and their advertising gurus to sell iPhones and iPads has become so ubiquitous that it's even been parodied on Sesame Street. Still, few would have ever thought that the tech giant—which, like many other Silicon Valley concerns, boasts a progressive profile on many cultural issues, and extends domestic-partner benefits to gay and lesbian employees—would condone an app that purports to "cure" homosexuality. It would seem an even greater stretch for Apple and company founder and CEO Steve Jobs to make such an application available through its iTunes store. Yet the...

    (Mashable) -- More than 100,000 people have signed an online petition calling for Apple to remove an app from the iTunes store that was created by an anti-gay Christian organization. Exodus International, which according to its website has ministries that "provide support for individuals who want to recover from homosexuality," released the app on February 15. The app has a 4+ approval rating from the Apple app store, and the organization is quick to point out that this rating is reserved for those apps that "contain no objectionable material." Gay rights activists obviously disagree.

The Church of Scientology, embarrassed by the story, has always tried to hide its existence. Until now. The Church has been playing a cat-and-mouse game with YouTubers, getting it removed in many cases; we have the...

    Associated Press CHARLESTON, S.C. — Picture this: Your boss is threatening to fire you because he thinks you stole company property. He doesn't believe your denials. Your lawyer suggests you deny it one more time, in a brain scanner that will show you're telling the truth. Wacky? Science fiction? It might happen this summer. Just the other day I lay flat on my back as a scanner probed the tiniest crevices of my brain and a computer screen asked, "Did you take the watch?" And two outfits, Cephos and No Lie MRI, say they'll start offering brain scans for lie...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tom Cruise's faith in Scientology was nurtured at a secretive Southern California desert compound that catered to his needs around the clock, it was reported Saturday. Long before Cruise sprang onto Oprah's couch or blasted Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants, the Hollywood superstar undertook intensive study and counseling at the compound in the late 1980s and early 1990s, current and former Scientologists told the Los Angeles Times. Cruise also trained at the church's better-known facilities, including those in Hollywood, Calif., and Clearwater, Fla. But much of his time was spent at the compound 90 miles east...

    NUMBER ONE ---- AGAIN! The word came in yesterday afternoon. The FairTax Book will remain No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller's List for the second week in a row. Our editor at Regan Books told us yesterday afternoon that it is much harder to make this list the second week than it is the first. Needless to say, we're excited and gratified. Interview requests for Congressman Linder and myself are pouring in, and the crowds at the book signings remain strong. Our greatest hope is that the book generates a buzz and momentum of its own. Across the...

    FairTax would free markets, individuals from income tax. In “The FairTax Book,” Rep. John Linder (R-Ga.) and libertarian talk radio host Neal Boortz offer a witty and straightforward explanation of the political and economic consequences of making April 15 “just another day.” Published by Regan Books, it hits bookstores this week. And if tax reform is not a “hot” topic now, then give this book a month on the New York Times bestseller list for things to change. The FairTax is a bold idea to replace the income tax with a national sales tax. What’s so bold about it? Not...

    Thanks to Tom Cruise and his couch-hopping, reporter-thrashing self, Scientology is in the news again. And while most of us can identify it as the belief system of choice for Cruise and other Hollywood headliners, the teachings and practices of the Church of Scientology -- not to be confused with Christian Science -- remain a mystery to many. Founded in 1954 by science-fiction author L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology today claims millions of adherents in more than 150 countries, though there are no Scientology organizations within 100 miles of Mobile, Montgomery or Birmingham, according to the Church of Scientology Web site....

August 23, 2004 by Sharon Hughes There is a new major U.S. mental health initiative on the docket, based on a report of the New Freedom in Mental Health Commission, which recommends mental health screening for adults and children as young as preschool age, in primary care health settings, schools, and correctional facilities. It also includes expanding school-based mental health programs requiring specific treatments for specific conditions, including the use of specific medications. Despite a growing public opposition to universal mental health screening, states are being encouraged...

(AP) - The mayor says he will rescind a proclamation making May "Dianetics Month," which he approved without knowing it endorsed a religion known for celebrity adherents like Tom Cruise. George Roy, mayor of the city of 3,200, approved the proclamation last month, but said he will rescind it when the City Council meets next week. "Dianetics," a book written in 1950 by L. Ron Hubbard, is a main basis for the Church of Scientology, based in Clearwater,...
