Russia, here we come

Remember the opening of the new Church of Scientology Russia some weeks ago? This was a leap forward to deliver all of Scientology in Russia! And something else happened today, something that Scientologists might call “negative gain” – an improvement from bad to not so bad ;) – namely that Ministry of Justice officials in Russia changed their mind about a major intrusion in Freedom of Speech. Not voluntarily though, it took several court cases to wake them up to the fact that letters don’t bite.

Says the Associated Press Moscow today “The Church of Scientology says Russian authorities have lifted a ban on some of its publications. A statement on the website of the organization’s Russian branch says 29 books and lectures by the movement’s founder L. Ron Hubbard were banned in late April after a court in the Siberian city of Surgut found them “extremist.” It said Tuesday that Russia’s Justice Ministry has dropped the publications from its list of extremist literature. Ministry officials refused immediate comment, but an online list of extremist literature does not mention Scientology materials Tuesday evening.”

Спасибо, Россия!

  1. It appears, clearwater here we come too!
    Thats alot of land… I can only imagine what the church will do with it…

    • Use it for delivery of services. Scientology is expanding rapidly and the need is there.


      • Another AO? Or just more Class 5s? Or a dianetics center?
        Possibly another RTC base… Possibly applied scholastics/TWTH/narconon anything from IAS or ABLE… heck it could be anything out of a million things… Scientology is just so large…

      • Exactly :)


      • Pat, I’m not one to beat a dead horse, and feel free to not answer if you’d rather, but I just wonder which data you are using to reach your conclusion?

  2. And that’s the right thing, too. Censorship isn’t the answer.

  • What is this blog?

    I am running a website, which deals with critical questions about Scientology.
    So naturally I am into finding answers to the questions that are constantly being asked all over the internet about Scientology, Scientologists, the Church, L. Ron Hubbard and the Church's leader, David Miscavige. I want to find answers from independent sources, not only Church of Scientology owned sites or anti-Scientology hate sites. So what's left? Court documents, photos and other reliable sources. Help me find stuff and ask whatever you want. Thanks!

    The easiest way to shoot a question over to me is to click here.
