AnonyNews: Haiti Special & Bob Minton Passes [video]

This week Anonynews does a Haiti Special. Reporters do a round-up of news items exposing how the Church of Scientology is using the recent disaster as a PR event to further their scope by exploiting the suffering of others. Reference links are listed on their YouTube page.

AnonyNews Broadcast: Haiti Special

Bob Minton, Scientology Critic, Passes.
bob minton ~ Robert S. Minton, a retired investment banker who poured millions into efforts to fight the Church of Scientology in the 1990s, has died. He was 63.

Minton burst on the local scene in late 1997 when he began financing a lawsuit against the church by the family of Lisa McPherson, the 36-year-old Scientologist who died in 1995 while in the care of church staffers in Clearwater.

All told, Minton gave about $2 million to the family's legal effort and an additional $8 million to other anti-Scientology causes. He set up an office next to church facilities in downtown Clearwater and staged frequent pickets. [more...]
