Page A-12


        I was pleased with the article of June 2,
("Man pleads innocent to fugitive charges") on the arrest of Thomas C.
Padgett for his non-payment of child support.  Padgett complained in the
article that the Church
of Scientology has been opposing him.  This could not be further from
the truth.
        The Church feels that Padgett should not
use his former wife's religion to deny support
payments to provide for the proper food, clothing, and shelter for his
children - as ordered by the court.
        Hopefully Padgett will some day stop denying his children
financial support.  Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote that the
way to happiness includes that one love and help their children and that
one obey the
laws of the land.  Everyone hopes Padgett will
live up to these standards, as it will make him - in the end - a happier

"Thank you for your very detailed letter regarding scientology.  We
haven't yet found a way to attack these jackals who feed on children and
young adults who are too emotionally weak to stand by themselves when
they reach the age of consent."

This clown Ofman wouldn't know an allegation from diddly squat!  The
facts are Tom doesn't owe a cent and pays monthly child support
payments in excess of four (4) times the
amount required by Kentucky statutes.....
which is on appeal to a higher civil court down

3 weeks ago, a letter was sent to the prosecutor
asking him EXACTLY what criminal statute or
code has Tom violated to activate a "fugitive
from justice" charge.  That letter was sent by
fax and requested a swift reply.  There has been NO response to date.
This is a classic
example of cultic legal harassment utilizing
public officials and worse tax dollars.

Tom has been stalked, character assassinated, and harassed by these
thugs dating back to
1993 & 94 in Michigan, 1995 & 96 in Florida, and 1997 to current here in
They just don't quit!

As far as any credibility of Ofman's assertions
about Hubbard's teachings, Alex Beam with the Boston Globe called
Scientology one of the
"greatest anti-intellectual movements of our
