  1. Independent Reformed Church of Scientology incorporated in California.

    HT: "9001" on Tony Ortega's blog:

    Do they automatically get tax free status?
  3. No, they have to apply to the IRS to get U.S. tax-exempt status.

    They can also apply separately to California to get California state tax-exempt status. My memory, and I could be wrong, is that if they get U.S. tax-exempt status from the IRS, the State of California automatically, or pretty much automatically (i.e., just a matter of filling in some forms), gives them state tax-exempt status.

    The Independent Reformed Church of Scientology. Hmmm... one question:

    Is this the People's Front of Judea or is it the Judean People's Front?

    Another question: will this last longer than "Milestone Two," "The First Independent Church of Scientology," and a whole slug of others? And will people get it confused with the small-time hood who claims he's the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard?

  5. FWIW, somebody on Tony Ortega's blog noted that the First Independent Church of Scientology still has U.S. tax-exempt status. Somebody is keeping it up-to-date with the IRS. I just verified that it is *still* litigating its administrative trademark case. So the FICS is still alive and at least somewhat kicking. My impression is they are waiting for their trademark case to be resolved.

    Hip Hip. Another strategy of the co$ together with lemberger who was revealed his deadly secrets on a YT video. They are trying to open a "reformed church of scientology" so that they will also capture the "independent field".
  7. Do you have any evidence that Lemberger is involved with the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology?

    Do you have any evidence that the corporate Church of Scientology s involved with the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology?
    What YouTube video are you referring to?
    I'm not trying to be confrontational. I'm genuinely interested in any evidence concerning the above.

    Call Max Hauri and he will give you information.
    'dani lemberger interview' in Youtube search bar
    rathbun is friends with dani, and you saw his videos...
    you can think it is all a conspiracy, but pyramids exist for a reason.
    what is your thought?
  9. Didn't Rathbun screw over Lemberger in a recent court case?
  10. Lickit10Times Member

    Ortega posted a video with Dani asking Rathbun why he gave the church a private email. There was no answer from Rathbun. Rathbun started to make high quality videos and he is now "exposing" one by one. So to tell you the truth, I do not know if it screwed Dani in the recent court case, but what I do know is that both are hallucinating, and probably are coordinating their actions.
  11. Do you have any evidence of coordination between Rathbun and Lemberger since Rathbun started pushing a pro-COS narrative? If not I would question whether or not you understand the word 'know'.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it is reasonable to criticise the independent field. But only accurately.

    I must say that you are annoying P-:
    Yes, the fact that their were emails back and forth between Dani and Rathbun.
    Rathbun refused to answer Dani's "public" question.
    Dani met and consulted Rathbun before he left the Church.
    It is an awesome game they are playin'.
  13. The Independent Reformed Church of Scientology is now live.

  15. Lana Mitchell has explained the need for the new Independent Reformed Church of Scientology given the prior existence of the First Independent Church of Scientology.

    At the end of 2017 the First Independent Church of Scientology was registered by Jim Fonda, and I got excited that there was a possibility to create a ‘second terminal’ to break the monopoly and suppressive hold that the Church of Scientology has on the field.

    I was hopeful that we had another opportunity to connect up the field and get standard Scientology delivery occurring. Despite the continued noise in the media, we can help people recover from what has occurred and I liken it to the fall-out after a major cataclysm or war. There are people out there, thousands of them, that need assistance, and by using standard tech we can bring relief and work to try and sort out this mess.

    Unfortunately Jim Fonda, despite the best of intentions, has a different plan for the First Independent Church of Scientology which is focused more on a Div 6 public, so the new church has not progressed as I would have hoped and it does not fill the much needed gap within the field to create a new 3rd dynamic group.

    So that brings us to present time.

    A long 10-year story — but really only a snippet of time in the time-track of us eternal beings.

    We have pockets of delivery happening all over this planet. There are many well-intentioned, honest, hard-working and sincere Scientologists who are delivering Scientology in the field. There are a handful of loopy squirrels and one or two criminal rip-off merchants, but the majority are on the rails and just doing what they love – moving people up LRH’s Bridge. Tom Martiniano, Chris Black, Ingrid Smith, Mike Eldredge, Pierrot Bartnik, Becky Buchanan, Carolyn Groff and many more – these are good people doing good things.

    So where to from here?

    There is a plan to try and create a new 3rd dynamic again – and if that fails, we will try again, and if that fails, we will try again.

    A change has come

    by Lana Mitchell

    ANNOUNCEMENT: L.Ron Hubbard's philosophy and legacy can now be found in the friendly environment of the new Independent Reformed Church of Scientology (IRCS).

    The new church is wholly independent of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), Church of Scientology International (CSI), and the Church of Spiritual Trust (CST) (collectively and loosely known as the Church of Scientology).

    The new global church is for Scientologists who believe in and practice LRH's original philosophy and working technology and have either left the church of their own accord or been expelled from the church.

    It is for individuals who are seeking spiritual enlightenment through the religious beliefs and practices of the original philosophy and the technology relating to that philosophy, as originally expounded by L.Ron Hubbard, and who have no desire to be a part of the current Church of Scientology.
    We believe that man is free to follow his own path.

    His or her religious practices and beliefs are not constricted by any copyright monopoly, therefore people wishing to seek enlightenment through the practices of Scientology are not bound by law to attend only the official church (any more than Christians being bound by law to attend only Catholic churches, or Judaists bound to be Orthodox).

    Details on the new church can be found at Independent Reformed Church of Scientology.

    A change has come. We are pretty excited about it!
