This just couldn’t wait. I was in the middle of something else (equally interesting and jaw-dropping in its own way) and I was looking up something for that and came across this letter in the FDA files from L. Ron Hubbard to the Better Business Bureau in 1957.
Did you know that the Church of Scientology wasn’t even named that at first? Yes, indeedy. It’s first name, as incorporated on July 21, 1955 was the non-profit Founding Church of Man’s Religion. It wasn’t until two months later, in September, that an amendment changed the name to what we all know it as – the Founding Church of Scientology.
These documents I’m about to show you were part of the recently declassified FDA records that were obtained in January of 2015. These records were publicly accessible because of a Muck Rock/FOIA request as part of the dedicated research of activist R.M. Seibert (Anonlover) – who apparently requested them in order to find/feed scientology story material to journalist Tony Ortega.
They can be found on CD #1, in Folder 3, letter from Hubbard on page 466.
Here’s the images of the letter from Hubbard first –
It’s right under the last heading of Founding Church of Scientology of Washington D.C.
Yowza, right? Wow.
I’ll come back to that again here in a minute, first here’s the plain text of the letter itself.
Notice how Hubbard mentioned including financial statements? They were almost 50 pages later than the letter in the original PDF, they started on page 502.
I have included them together with the letter in a new PDF for you, OCR’d of course.
First page of the financials – total income for Fiscal Year 6-30-56 for the Founding Church of Man’s Religion Scientology was $101,254.35.
OK. Coming back to the first name was Founding Church of Man’s Religion on July 21, 1955, what’s really interesting about that is that Miles Copeland, Hubbard’s CIA handler, had literally just come back from Egypt right at that time. Hubbard was conducting ‘political operations’ for Miles and the CIA.
From my husband’s book Scientology Roots Chapter 12-2 Hubbard’s Lifelong Intelligence Career –
Miles Copeland married a woman who worked for Special Operations Executive (British intelligence) – Lorraine Adie.
Miles Copeland was the first member of the CIA to be officially designated a political action specialist.
Starting in July 1955, Copeland headed a CIA unit called Political Action Staff. His senior was Kermit Roosevelt.
Bob Mandlestam was one of the assistants to Miles Copeland.
Miles Copeland says that Ron Hubbard and Scientology worked for the CIA Political Action Staff –
…there was something called Moral Rearmament… an interdenominational politico-religious movement started by a nut named Frank Buchman. It purported to deepen the spiritual life of its members, thereby inducing them to behave responsibly and altruistically in their public lives.
What caught Bob’s [Bob Mandlestam] eye was the social level at which the movement operated. It was aimed exclusively at leaders… the arrangement we made with Moral Rearmament gave us useful secret channels right into the minds of leaders not only in Africa and Asia but also in Europe.
When Bob made similar arrangements with Scientology, the brainchild of another nut, this one a science-fiction writer named Ron Hubbard, we were on our way to having a political action capability which would make… Bill Casey’s CIA seem trivial by comparison. ‘MRA will hit ’em high, and the Church of Scientology will hit ’em low!’ Bob liked to boast, and he was right.
If you cynics who read this think I’m kidding, put the thought out of your mind. 126
Political Action includes various types of CIA covert operations both inside and outside of the United States. It includes financing for CIA covert operations, covert manipulation of a nation’s people and their leaders, social engineering, mind control, lobbying, propaganda, terrorizing, killing, coups, and giving support to CIA installed dictators and their cruel treatment of the people which includes human rights violations, torture and mass murder. Hubbard and other Scientologists have given support at one time or another for that entire list.
A large part of the financing for CIA covert operations is obtained from drug trafficking. Scientologists have helped with that too.
Copeland also said Scientology has a continuing arrangement with the CIA to conduct “political action”. 132
Those operations we inaugurated in the years 1955-7 are still secret… The ‘perfect’ political action operation is, by definition, uneventful. Nothing ‘happens’ in it. It is a continuing arrangement, neither a process nor a series of actions proceeding at a starting point and ending with a conclusion.
The MRA, Unification Church and Church of Scientology are a chosen vehicle to prepare humanity for British slavemaster two-class system rule.
Ron Hubbard moved to Washington D.C. and incorporated the Founding Church of Scientology in July 1955. [ Note: my husband will have to change that now to Founding Church of Man’s Religion ]
This CIA Political Action unit was a front for MI 6 Section D, which was specifically formed to conduct sabotage through political covert actions. Working for the CIA Political Action unit was yet another British intelligence assignment for British agent Ron Hubbard.
Here’s the images of the relevant book pages from Miles’ book – The Game Player.
Notice that the first page shown clearly reveals that there was already a CIA connection into Dianetics and Scientology prior to 1955.
I have done a number of posts about all of Miles Copeland’s statements and Hubbard’s actions that show his alignment with the CIA and British intelligence.

So, the Founding Church of Man’s Religion, how interesting eh?
And rather tongue-in-cheek, if you ask me.
