    Law of which land, Land of the Lost?

    The only references to an act by that name are from Scientology, and the Child Medication Safety Act of 2003 died in Congress.

    You clicked this to see how I survived the Church of Scientology. I’ve heard all the stories, “They’re nuts! They lock you up and torture you! It’s a pyramid scheme! Why am I yelling?!?!” Truly it couldn’t be that bad, right?
    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
    It was the creepiest experience of my life. What startled me most was how normal some of the people acted. The first woman walking by me was wearing a Delta Gamma tank, Lululemon, and had her yoga mat around her shoulder. Or any Bucknell sorority girl in the gym at 5pm. She was too normal! This was a trap I told myself.
    My appointment was for 7:30pm and I realized very quickly this wasn’t necessary: I was the only non-Scientologists in there. This secretary with one of those fake smiles greeted me and looked over the list confirming my appointment. Lady, I was your only customer for the day, don’t pretend like your party is at max capacity.

    In that photo I was awoken by the yelling of angry sorority girls after passing out on their common room. You can see they were not very happy to walk in and see me melt into the carpet. Clearly my night proved successful.

    Hi, my name is Michael Sahagian. At the moment I live in Washington DC and do business development for a translations company.
    ...
    I never thought I would become a blogger. However, I’ve been working for a year and have learned one thing: I have no clue what’s going on. Am I writing all this to overcome my lack of life direction? Will I ever convince someone Bojack Horseman is not just another animated cartoon, but instead a phenomenal show balancing humor and one of the best portrayals of depression on TV? Isn’t asking a lot of questions the sign of poor writing skills?

    Probably.

    Ever since megalithic spending/appropriation bills became the norm (cromibus), the latest weasel maneuver is to refashion dead bills into amendments and slap them into the pile for annual budget package legislation.

    So I would suspect this is the case here... someone took the old Child's Med Safety Act and retooled it into an amendment. But scilons are still referring to it by the old name. When I get a chance, I'll search the latest version of applicable budget bills and see if I can find it.

    Evidently the U.S. Congress does not use the principle of "one subject, one bill".
  6. Scientology supports proposed federal laws to control and report police activities.

    Again, this is not about the substantive issue. This is about the Church of Scientology building relationships (including but certainly not limited to with the Nation of Islam), creating alliances, and establishing its bona fides as an organization concerned about civil rights.

    I'll say again what I said before. Do you think any of the signatories to this (and previous) civil rights letters will refuse the Church of Scientology if the Church of Scientology asks for support concerning its religious status in Russia, Kazakhstan, etc.?

    Interfaith Coalition Urges Immediate Steps to Mend Divisions between Communities and Law Enforcement

    Dear Majority Leader McConnell, Speaker Ryan and Minority Leaders Reid and Pelosi:

    [SNIP]

    According to data compiled by The Washington Post, 990 fatal police shootings occurred in 2015. Surprisingly, reports from the Federal Bureau of Investigation have never counted more than 460 police shootings in a single year. Addressing this shocking data disparity is a crucial first step to understanding the extent of excessive use of force by police, and therefore we seek your support for the Law Enforcement Trust and Integrity Act of 2015 (S. 2168/H.R. 2875).The bill would require law enforcement to report data on traffic and pedestrian stops, frisk and body searches, and use of deadly force, including demographic details such as race, ethnicity, age and gender. The legislation would also provide accreditation, training and funding to law enforcement to implement best practice pilot programs.

    Our organizations also urge your support for the End Racial Profiling Act (S. 1056 /H.R. 1933) to prohibit racial profiling by law enforcement and to support data collection on its prevalence. * * * *

    Sue Taylor from the National Affairs Office has been confirmed to participate in the following web series on religious freedom. Other notable names on this list of confirmed guests tie in heavily with lobbying activities by Greg Mitchell.

    Scientology's National Affairs Office is also listed under "Partners & Allies" for a coalition of faith-based lobbyists under the National Council of Churches known as the "Justice Roundtable" that Greg Mitchell also pawns for supporting the cult's shenanigans in relation to getting the Criminon program some government funding.

    ^^ Sounds like the International Religious Freedom Roundtable, which was a Greg Mitchell creation.

  10. In NEW Initiative, Church of Scientology Joins 66 Organizations to Urge Justice Dept. to Improve Data Collection Mandate on Deaths in Police Custody.

    Press Release - The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights

    67 Organizations Urge Justice Dept. to Improve Data Collection Mandate on Deaths in Police Custody

    For Immediate Release
    Contact: Scott Simpson, 202.466.2061, simpson@civilrights.org
    August 30, 2016

    WASHINGTON – Today, 67 national and local criminal justice, civil rights, human rights, faith-based, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQ, and open government organizations urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to strengthen its proposed rule outlining the process for police departments to collect and report data about people who die while in police custody.

    In a letter sent yesterday, the organizations responded to DOJ’s proposal for implementing the Deaths in Custody Reporting Act (DICRA), which requires police departments across the country to disclose details to the federal government about custodial deaths. DICRA was signed into law in 2014 in response to a troubling lack of reliable data on these deaths and DOJ is currently collecting comments on its implementation proposal that was published August 4, 2016. The comment period will close on October 3, 2016. Signers include The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the ACLU, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the United Methodist Church, the National Immigration Law Center, the National LGBTQ Task Force, the Southern Poverty Law Center, among many others.

    I think there should also be a mandate for collection of statistics for Deaths in Scientology Custody.

    There is something off about interfaith groups. Jews, Protestants, Catholics, Muslims, and Scientologists have conflicting faith based ideas. They can't really "interfaith." But they can work together on a shared value, like helping the poor. Better they name their group something related to that shared value rather than implying shared faith.

    If an interfaith organization doesn't have an obvious shared value, they must be saying simply, "yay religion!" Well how is that in the spirit of the 1st Amendment? The Founders were sick of religious wars and so they said religion doesn't matter in government. That is almost the opposite of "yay religion!"
