"From it's inception, the church of scientology has been a potent and vital force in the field of social reform, dedicated to the preservation of human rights and civil liberties. That dedication would be meaningless if the church was not willing to stand and fight when those rights and liberties are threatened.

The church is conducting this public education campaign to illustrate just how completely out of control the IRS really is. What you read is but a snapshot of the IRS at work. The full dimensions of IRS conduct are mind boggling, because the horror stories recounted above are merely a few drops in an ocean of abuse. The truth will shock you and anger you, and when it does, you will want to help us to bring about changes that will force the IRS to be responsible, accountable, and lawful. But regardless of IRS retaliation, the church of scientology (illegible)"
