    Cults lose appeal in Russia and are ordered to pay a fortune for frivolous lawsuit: (click here)


    Please Note: The Cult Awareness Network (CAN), a resource for help and information about cults for many years, was targeted by a Scientology "Fair Game" campaign of harassment and misinformation. Scientologists bought the CAN name and logo and now the new CAN does not even use the name "cult" any more (except in using the CAN name to deceive those who don't know they destroyed CAN). The "new CAN" no longer provides any help at all with regard to cults, and now devotes all their energies to maligning the former directors of CAN and the former activities of CAN. The unabashed slanders and lies which the Scientology president Heber Jentsch and other Scientologists uttered on the news programs 60 Minutes (December 28, 1997) and Public Eye (January 7, 1998) serve as a typical example of the new CAN's mission. This will also be very familiar to those who have seen the "sacred" teaching of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, on declaring their critics to be "fair game."

    "Worldwide Church of God" (Herbert Armstrong/Joseph Tkach/"Plain Truth")
    Since 1994 this group has initiated widespread reforms and has acknowledged that it was a cult and apologized. Thus, the group is now much less cult-like and may even evolve into just another denomination, if it does not lose all its members first, some of whom are rather attached to the former Armstrongist beliefs. Either way, the direction seems to be towards One Less Cult in the World.
