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
60 Minutes (December 28, 1997) and
(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."

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.
