Week in Review Volume
by Rod Keller [email@example.com]
Alt.religion.scientology Week in Review summarizes the most significant
postings from the Usenet group Alt.religion.scientology for the preceding week for the benefit of those who can't follow the group as closely as
they'd like. Out of thousands of postings, I attempt to include news of significant events, new affidavits, court rulings, new contributors,
whatever. I hope you find it useful. Like many readers of a.r.s, I have a kill file. So please take into consideration that I may not have seen some
of the most significant postings.
The articles in A.r.s Week in Review are brief summaries of articles
posted to the newsgroup. They include message IDs for the original articles, and many have a URL to get more information. You may be able to
find the original article, depending on how long your site stores articles in the newsgroup before expiring them.

(I'm posting Issue II of the Criminal Time Track for
"Theta." There is a lot more data here which fills in many blanks.
It paints a clear picture and data starts falling into place. That's a good
sign one is on the line of truth. If you know any more history you can add,
please email it to me.
Note: This is actually a good summary of events. The only
disadvantage is that it doesn't give the data sources.
Issue III makes corrections to Issue II, including
any from the Church that are true.
A list of sources are attached and assigned a number.
The number at the end of a time track entry tells you
the source of that data.

On 1 October 1993, the Church of Scientology obtained tax exemption from the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This ended 26 years of what the
Church itself has described as a "war" against the IRS, in which it used extraordinary and in many cases illegal tactics - bugging of
government offices, theft of mountains of classified files, private detectives pursuing senior government officials, thousands of lawsuits, full-page
attack adverts in US daily newspapers, and so on.
So perhaps it is not such a great surprise that the settlement itself came about in some very unusual circumstances, raising questions about the actions
of both the Church of Scientology and the IRS. Neither party has been willing to provide answers, with the IRS refusing to disclose the terms of the
exemption agreement in defiance of a court order and US taxation law. But with the leak in December 1997 of the secret agreement, the relationship
between Scientology and the IRS is under greater scrutiny now than ever before.
These pages, whilst not making a judgement on whether the Church legitimately earned its tax exemption, are intended to be a clearing house for
reports and court records on the Scientology vs IRS controversy.

I go by Tigerlily on the internet, but who I am is no secret. The essay below is rather long, because it was written to win a $10,000
prize, but it didn't win. Still, there is a lot in there worth reading. It tells a little about my life as I was immersed
in Scientology (tm) but mostly it focused on LRH, what I knew of him, and some things in the Church policies which I consider
non-optimum. If I were writing my own story it would have been much different, but I was attempting to fulfill the requirements of
the essay contest. I spent thirty years in Scientology (tm) and was trained to Class VI auditor, St. Hill Special Briefing Course
Graduate, and Ethics Specialist Course Graduate. Many people are more highly trained than I am,
but I do feel I have a balance. That is useful, so many get only one aspect when they go through training. Read below if you have time, if not, skip

McClaughry, Virginia: "My Story"
Someone protested against the "six month check line"
for people on Solo NOTs. This is a true, recent, story of what goes on in the Church when you discover the degree to which squirreling is occuring.
On 8 October 1993, the man who effectively controls Scientology - David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center - gave a speech to the
9th anniversary event of the International Association of Scientologists. 10,000 members of the International Association of Scientologists had gathered in the Los
Angeles Sports Arena to hear Miscavige announce a spectacular victory: after 30 years of conflict with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Church of Scientology
(CoS) had won complete tax exemption for all of its 150 US entities. The following is a transcript of Miscavige's speech. A partial version was printed in issue 32 of
International Scientology News. It makes extraordinary reading.
The Montauk Project and Camp Hero Today: Part 2, Copyright © 1998, John A. Quinn/NewsHawk Inc
INTRODUCTION: I have already written and disseminated one report on the covert government's secret
electromagnetic/radio frequency mind control project based at a documented subterranean facility beneath the
derelict Montauk Air Force Station, at the extreme east end of Long Island's south fork. These activities, an
outgrowth of some very esoteric research directly linked to the (in)famous "Philadelphia Experiment" (Project
Rainbow--later Phoenix) and both the interdimensional and psychotronic (linking mind to machine [computer])
ramifications of this work, reached literally heretofore unimaginable levels of human
(technological) control over the parameters of our"reality" in the Montauk experiments; including all conceivable implications of that word.
As has been stated by others, the masterminds behind the Montauk/Phoenix Project attempted to "play God".
Miller, Russell. Henry Holt, New York. 1988. ISBN: 155-013-0277 hardback (c) 1987 Russell
Miller. There are also UK and Canadian editions, and a paperback by Sphere Books (a subsidiary of
Penguin), in 1988. 520pp. ISBN 074-740-3325. (One of the most thoroughly-researched books on the cult,
Miller covers Hubbard's family origins and his life chronologically while exploring and documenting his life-long
habit of lying and exaggerating. Includes 22 photos, many of Hubbard's family. The book is now on the web,
