THE BONA FIDES OF THE SCIENTOLOGY RELIGION


“Scientology...has the objective to achieve an inner and outer freedom, one that transcends the human, one that belongs to the field of spiritual things, and that moves up to infinity; indeed, the progress toward realization of the eighth dynamic force – concerning Infinity and God – actually is the characteristic that describes Scientology as a religion and as a church.”

And on December 12, 1991, the court of Lecco, in Italy, ruled that the Church and its followers were actively engaged in what could only be described as religious activities.

In Switzerland, the Statthalteramt of the District of Zurich on September 6, 1994, determined that Scientology was a religion and that the Church and its members were entitled to the protection guaranteed by freedom of religion.

In Austria, the Independent Administrative Senate in Vienna, on August 1, 1995, concluded that Scientology is a religion and that auditing is a religious activity conducted solely for a religious purpose.
