That's simply not true.  www.operatingthetan.com holds information about my 
adventures with the UFO cult and it is in the US.

short version here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Henson

and if you Google "sex drugs cults" (without the quotes) the first link 
will take you to an evolutionary psychology article I wrote on how cults 
get such a hold on human brains.

Incidentally, if you want some low cost glory, now is the time to get into 
the fight.  It looks very much like the scientology cult is on the ropes 
and won't last out the year.  Tom Cruise probably had more effect than I did.
