Exscientologists’ terrible humility: An open letter to Jon Atack

  I am writing concerning some statements you made about Exscientologists in your foreword in Chris Shelton’s just-published book Scientology: A to Xenu. I am assuming you wrote what was published. There is considerable disinformation in the book, and, while presenting as critical of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, Scientologists and their collaborators, it actually serves […]

Fletcher Prouty, so I am doing my best now. The article and the inaccuracies I’m correcting also concern testimony in the 1984 trial in the case the Scientologists […]
