Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

He said I could, so I bring you the latest in Scientology's barage of barratry (sp? I sure am!). This comes from a mailer that was sent out to subscribers of the Watchman Fellowship, and I have snipped out the parts of the mailer that didn't have anything to do with Scientology. Perhaps this is something that I should know, but could you provide a sentence or two on what Watchman Fellowship is about (and why CoS cares about them, and what part of the country they're from? _________ Scientology Lawsuit? We have once again been confronted by attorneys representing Scientology. They are alleging we have in our files and have been revealing certain of their "trade secrets," and are violating US copyright laws. In a June 13 letter, we were notified by one of Scientology's lawyers [Changii's note: It was Helena Kobrin] that they claim rights to "damages, an injunction, and IMPOUNDING OF MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT USED [underlined in the original] in perpetrating the infringing acts." I bet Judge Whyte wouldn't sign such an order ... now. [clip] Craig Branch, Watchman's vice president, was also served a subpena two weeks ago when he exited a plane in Chicago. Apparently, Scientologists already have gained access to some of our private information. They seem to know our itinerary even down to what flights we are taking and the content of private telephone conversations. Do you have information that suggests they have access to other private information? Unauthorized access/use of flight information is not good, but it isn't in the same leage as wiretapping. With the prayers and financial assistance of our friends and supporters, we were able to defend ourselves from two previous attempts at lawsuits from Scientologists. Once again I ask for your intercession on our behalf. - James K. Walker President
