Happy New Year Scientology

Cruise Cult's Bizarre Musical Chairs Game

Canada, USA, and Belgium Take on Scientology 2013         
Scientology in Canada and France took major hits in 2012 with the Quebec government shutting down a 100 bed drug rehab in Trois-Rivieres and a France court of appeal upholding Church of Scientology's 2009 fraud conviction. Now facing wrongful death lawsuits, several human rights commission cases, and charges in Belgium of fraud, extortion and being a criminal organization, Scientology will have their hands full and indeed busy lawyers.

Once, self-proclaimed as the "fastest growing religion in the world", Scientology now appears to be one of government and police investigations, lawsuits, and criminal charges, with church members leaving in droves.

Following several patient deaths at Scientology's drug rehabs, Narconon, in Oklahoma and Georgia, wrongful death lawsuits have been filed, with one decision pending about criminal charges in one of the Oklahoma cases.

Five cases in Quebec, Canada, are moving forward following complaints to the Quebec Human Rights Commission against Narconon Trois-Riviers et al. for discrimination and patient exploitation. The commission has been investigating for nearly two years and the matters are now in final stages of investigator reports and a pending Commission Tribunal hearing.

Narconon Alberta is now facing formal complaints to the Alberta health agency, College of Physicians, and the Canada Competition Bureau for allegedly practicing medicine without a licence (charlatan), and for false and misleading advertising of their 70% patient success rate. Documents and statements will be filed this week. Notable, is Belgium prosecutors are also going after the so-called church for "illegal medicine" practice.

Also worth mentioning is Scientology's apparent slave labour practices in the USA by using drug rehab patients as free or cheap labour after they complete the Narconon program. Instead of assisting and directing the patient to appropriated and much needed aftercare therapy, Narconon recruits vulnerable, fragile graduates as staff. After a short Scientology course, the victim is taken on as an Intern, with as little as $50-$100 per week income. Former Narconon interns say they will file formal complaints to the United States Department of Labor as soon as this month.

Recent interviews with victims and other sources across Canada and other countries, indicate Scientology is in for a year of serious legal battles and intense media exposure, including severe negative public relations. Indeed, a tidal wave of litigation, prosecution and expose is mounting and the tide is turning for the controversial Church of Scientology - - many who view the "church" as a destructive cult.

By then be sure the orgs say what is legal or not."
