Anyone got a pro- or anti-Scientology page in Australia? Let me know. (Rav? You out there?)

Other pages to start you off:
- The Church's Official
Multimedia Extravaganza, which has all you could ever ask for in a Church
page. If all you could ever ask for is shallow and glossy PR. I strongly
suggest you switch images off before going to this site - it has
too many of them and is too damned slow (not a good ad for Windows NT
- The entire
contents of the album The Road To Freedom are to be found
on the CoS site. Having heard the record, I'm surprised they didn't just
bury all copies. You need to hear this one, just to understand
how low music can go.
Critical of Scientology
- Andreas Heldal-Lund's Operation Clambake, the most
comprehensive critical site. Essential reading.
- Ron Newman's much-heralded The Church
Of Scientology vs. The Net, which is a good place to start -
despite no longer being maintained, it is of tremendous historical value,

"ARS is the only Usenet group that I know of where you can get into

scientific method, pro per legal representation, Constitutional

alt.quilting." - Feadog
"Everything there is on Scn should be posted to ars and thus be
archived. Generally, before it's webbed, it's posted here. If it's said
elsewhere, it's posted here. Right after it's scanned, it's posted here. If
it's said in the media, it's posted here. If not here, then where? This is
the place for it; always has been, always will be. Welcome to ars:
Scientology information central." - Martin Hunt.
