On the same day our cover story about the Church of Scientology's new Phoenix "Ideal Org" hit newsstands, our sister paper in New York, the Village Voice, reports that the Church is now probing our parent company, Village Voice Media.

See our cover story on what Scientology is up to in Phoenix here.

Voice editor-in-chief Tony Ortega, who's been debunking Scientology since 1995 -- including a series called "The 25 People Crippling Scientology" -- got word from a San Francisco public-relations firm we used to work with that a "reporter" for the Church's propaganda pub, Freedom, is asking questions about VVM's finances.

From Ortega's story:

We've just received confirmation that ace reporter Jim Lynch has been handed a new assignment, and that assignment is us!

Today, he called a PR firm in San Francisco that we used to work with, asking about "the finances of the Village Voice."

The finances of the Voice? Hey, Jim, when you find out about that, let us know!

Our friends at the PR firm were very puzzled, and let me know that a "rather unstable gentleman named James Lynch working for Freedom magazine" had called.

Its a challanging business investigating this cult and only the skilled and courageous need apply. That's why we love The Village Voice, it's sister papers like yours and in San Francisco, and The St Petersburg Times in FL. Freedom of Speech, Freedom of The Press are precious commodities that many take for granted. Not so with these publications.

Should we start watching out for black flying saucers? Is there now going to be a cult war between Phoenix and LD18?

Scientology must be wanting to reactivate the currently moribund Anonymous group in Phoenix in a baaad way.

It's always so entertaining when the cult sends forth a retarded thug, from outer space, to do its bidding.

Not convinced? Check out the video of the retarded thug in action, on "Runnin' Scared," Tony Ortega's Blog at the Village Voice. It's a laff riot, I'm here to tell you!

Well at least with them Scientologists, Larkin and Lacey don't have to worry about being dragged out of their homes and arrested in the middle of the night. I wonder if they'll want the IE browser history of every New Times reader too?

The Cult of Scientology is wasting NO time!  After the Village Voice stories, the cult attacks them?  This story will spread like wildfire.  Mess with the media and you-know-what hits the fan!
