Presses roll after ruling on Scientology book - 1987-12-03
Cathia Riley said Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story Of [L. Ron Hubbard] by British author Russell Miller, is "simply an attempt to capitalize" on Hubbard's popularity because his book sales number in the millions.
"The favorable ruling by the (court) supports our position that Bare-Faced Messiah deserves to be published in the country," he said. "The court's decision is to be applauded."
"Our church is a religion," she added. "It is not a cult, and L. Ron Hubbard is a great religious leader. There is an anti-religious movement that likes to attack religions under the heading of 'cults.' You start there and move on to attack other religions."
