In 1975 a mysterious group known as the United Churches of Florida crept into Clearwater, bought some property and settled behind security guards armed with clubs, pepper spray and silence. Concerned and curious, then Mayor Gabe Cazares took a closer look into this secretive organization and discovered they were none other than Scientology. The battle […]Read More Scientology in Clearwater: A History of Malice and Crime
When is enough…enough? Scientology has become accustomed to simply bullying its way through anything and anyone who dares to bar its way. From the very beginning anger has been used as a cudgel. L. Ron Hubbard himself was an unstable, angry, violent man. He used his temper and his fists on his wives, he drove […]Read More Enough Is Enough!
Dear Reverend Youngblood, As a Christian and firm believer in Our Lord, Jesus Christ I respectfully write this to you with a sense of urgency and sadness. My name is Stefani Hutchison. I am a Christian and I own both a blog as well as a Twitter account dedicated to fighting the abuses and darkness […]Read More An Open Letter to Reverend Youngblood
Scientology teaches that there are two parts to the mind. “L. Ron Hubbard discovered that the mind has two very distinct parts. One of these—the part that you consciously use and are aware of—is called the analytical mind. This is the portion of the mind which thinks, observes data, remembers it and resolves problems.

Dear Taryn, I would like to set Scientology aside for a moment and simply talk to you. No anger. No arguments. Just some observations gleaned from your very public conflict. Sometimes others can see more clearly than those involved in conflict. Obviously we cannot have a conversation because that takes two, although I am more […]Read More Dear Taryn, Will You Choose War or Peace?

Either Alighieri forgot a level or it was too terrifying even […]Read More Cathy Bernardini- A Harridan Scorned
There is something deeply motivating and fulfilling about being certain of one’s path. Dedicating one’s life to good. Working towards a goal in spite of any obstacle. Fighting for something REAL and worthwhile gives direction and confidence to life. Where others drift through the world from one thing to the next like so much flotsam in a flooded […]Read More Trapped Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
In my short, curt discussion with Reverend L’Heureux earlier he admitted that he did not know very much about Scientology. All he was concerned with was its “Religious Liberty”. Further, he dismissed those of us who are fighting against this cult and trying to bring healing and justice to the victims of its teachings and […]Read More Running Blindly into the Darkness
Is Twitter CEO Scientology’s Safepoint? Scientology is not a religion. They need their tax exemption revoked desperately. However for the sake of this article we will go with the idea that Scientology is a “Church”. Bigotry is intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. Persecution is cruel and unfair treatment of a person […]Read More Scientology’s Little Shop of Persecution
It is a constant source of bemusement and frustration to me that Twitter steadfastly refuses to address the malicious Fair Game attacks by Scientology. Given that Jack Dorsey apparently has some sort of relationship with the cult I don’t know why I am surprised by the lack of interest twitter support shows. I decided to […]Read More An Open Letter to Vijaya Gadde ESQ
