I went on 3 dates with the same man last week. We had 2 great dates with fantastic conversation, witty banter, intellectual and sexual chemistry. He is 55, handsome, tall, funny, and decent. At least he seemed decent until we got to our 3rd date and decided to discuss religion....

Normally, I think that only Us Weekly readers care about a celebrity divorce. But yesterday’s shocking news that marriage just wasn’t working for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise has shaken another community: Scientologists.
It’s been a tough few years for Scientology, which has been...

I missed the “Nightline” special last week on Scientology. But the Friendly Atheist didn’t, and he points us to the 3:40 mark of this clip, in which a Scientology spokesman gets really upset at Martin Bashir for asking about Xenu and subsequently walks out of the interview. It appears the spokesman, Tommy Davis, is getting tired of this question.

Kevin Roderick at LAObserved says this sign was spotted in Van Nuys. Not sure what kind of health coverage the job comes with, but you do get a free personality test.
Previously in Scientology:
After the jump is a short video of what happened when Stan took a free personality test. (He had been warned that anything that’s fun costs at least $8.)

If I could spend 30 minutes with one person, it would be Beck. The guy is a genius, and an odd one at that. I can only imagine what goes on inside his head.
Which is why it’s always surprised me that Beck is a Scientologist. Tom Cruse? Sure. But Beck? Really? We all blame our...

When the LA Times put a story today about the Internet assault on Scientology in the Calendar section, was the paper settling the half-century-old debate about the sincerity of Scientology as a religion or just filling a weak entertainment section?

Sean Bonner at Metroblogging L.A., who last month posted about the war declared against the Church of Scientology, captured quite the protest outside the church’s Hollywood center today. Fearing litigation, many of the protesters wore masks a la V of “V for Vendetta” or wrapped black scarves around their faces. (Reminds me of that episode of “South Park” in which all the credits were Jane and John Smith.)

Some Christian pastors—particularly in lower income, urban areas—are coupling Dianetics with the Bible.
Scientologists do not worship God, much less Jesus Christ. The church has seen plenty of controversy and critics consider it a cult. So why are observant Christians embracing some...

Paying taxes may be one of life's great certainties, but there's a bit more wiggle room when it comes to tax deductions.
Michael Sklar, a California accountant and Orthodox father of six, will appear in a federal Tax Court in Los Angeles in October as he pursues a long legal...
