    THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY

    As the worldwide spiritual headquarters of the Church of Scientology, Clearwater is viewed as a mecca to the thousands of Scientologists who come each year from all over the world to receive some of the highest levels of Scientology training. As the Church of Scientology has grown, so too has its presence and influence in downtown Clearwater, specifically, but also all of Tampa Bay.

    The St. Petersburg Times has chronicled the church's presence and impact since its arrival in Clearwater in 1975.

    A Scientology battle like no other: Miscavige versus Miscavige
    Thursday, January 12, 2017 10:32am
    It says in Chapter 36 that the Church of Scientology is great for families.
    Scientologists communicate more freely, raising "their capacity to love other people." Family bonds "strengthen dramatically." And church members "take deep pride in their record of resolving family problems and conflicts."
    The words come from What is Scientology?, a volume the church first published in 1992 as it sought greater acceptance from a wary public.
    Yet their promise has eluded the church's first family.
    Scientology's 56-year-old leader, David Miscavige, and his 80-year-old father, Ron Miscavige, have been embroiled for months in an epic feud that has brought the family's dysfunction into public view. It also has exposed the church to questions about whether its core practices — costing thousands of dollars — live up to their claimed benefits when it comes to family.
    The father, who brought his wife and kids into Scientology in 1969, now calls his son a tyrant who has turned the church into a bullying, paranoid, money grubbing enterprise that has ruined families, including his own, with its practice of "disconnection."
    The son, through his church, says Ron Miscavige is a wife-beating, philandering, child-abusing "monster" who is lying to make money off the family name. His two sisters, residents of Clearwater, have taken his side, saying they never want to see their father again. And Ron Miscavige's other son, known in the family as Ronnie, has been pulled into the fray, accused by the sisters of sexually abusing them when they were children while their father looked the other way.
    In May, Ron Miscavige released Ruthless, a tell-all book about how he found Scientology, saw his son soar to its peak, then escaped — disillusioned over the church's "off the rails" culture.

    Scientology draws dueling petitions involving Leah Remini, the IRS and change.org
    Friday, August 25, 2017 4:58am
    Reaction to this month's Season 2 premiere of the Emmy-nominated Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath series has been swift, from the religion's international spiritual headquarters in Clearwater and nationwide.
    Two dueling online petitions have emerged since the Aug. 15 premiere: one calling for the IRS to investigate Scientology's tax exempt status. That one was launched by Jeffrey Augustine, Scientology researcher and husband of former Scientologist Karen de la Carriere, who served aboard the church's ship Apollo with founder L. Ron Hubbard.
    The other, launched by a teenage Scientologist in India, calls for the cancellation of the series, alleging it is a "hate show" inciting violence.
    But the most notable response comes from the Church of Scientology itself, which has historically prohibited members from reading or acknowledging negative media about the church.
    Now the church's Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination arm is circulating form letters for parishioners to send to A&E advertisers, asking them to pull sponsorship of the show's "religious hate and bigotry which leads to violence."

    Epilogue: Ray Emmons, early Clearwater police investigator of Scientology, dies at 75

    [FONT=&amp]Published: November 2, 2017
    Updated: November 2, 2017 at 06:27 PM

    [FONT=&amp]CLEARWATER — Ray Emmons was an experienced vice and intelligence sergeant with the Clearwater Police Department in 1981 when he began the assignment that would become his legacy.

    By then, the mysterious group that arrived six years earlier and bought major downtown buildings under a fake name had been revealed as the Church of Scientology. But still much was unknown about this new organization that, government documents showed, spied on local journalists and politicians, framed the mayor in a hit-and-run accident, and wrote a manifesto of plans to take over Clearwater.


    Emmons went to work investigating Scientology for the city and produced a 10-volume report in 1983 declaring it a criminal, money-making scheme. He later talked about being followed, seeing his trash stolen, and having his home phone bugged.


    But Emmons, according to colleagues, never once flinched.

    In Scientology’s backyard, Baptist preacher ‘takes a stand’
    [FONT=&amp]Published: January 10, 2018
    Updated: January 10, 2018 at 09:04 PM

    [/FONT][FONT=&amp]CLEARWATER — The Baptist preacher stepped to the stage, his image projected on two mega screens behind him, and looked out at nearly 2,000 parishioners filling his worship center.
    "Scientology is a cult," Calvary Church Pastor Willy Rice said into his microphone Wednesday evening.
    "Scientology is dangerous. It is dangerous to those within and without, and Scientology should be exposed and opposed, not only by committed Christians but by moral, law abiding citizens who care about human rights and human justice everywhere."
