Re: Any update on Scientology losing its not for profit charitable status in Australi
The Dutch - doinitrite
. Where's that kittykat dude, I would love to get a look at the DOX which lead up to this. Its been rumbling along for a while now and one of the key elements appears to be drawing political attention
to the situation. All seems to have gone quiet on the Australian front. Not too sure why except that the process can be gueling and requires a united front without interference from those wanting to keep the "reglious" angle
Scientology is not a religion in most countries so has ducked for cover under the tax benefit afforded to "charities". It then becomes a matter of countering Scientology's claims of providing a "public benefit" which qualifies the charitable status. Its slowly becoming apparent to the New Zealand authorities that Scientology's charitable status is questionable . . . thing is, our public service is being severely run down and trying to get unmotivated, underpaid, staff to take action on what they consider to be only a minor issue is tough, especially when Scientology has little qualms about dragging things through the longest process possible with all the concomitant mendacious machinations required by KSW Standard L Ron Hubbard Scientolog Tech.
Still, if the Dutch, a nation known for tolerance, can do it, lets celebrate what victories we can on the way to our own . . .
