Facts vs. Fiction

Dispelling common misconceptions about the Scientology Religion

In-depth factual information on topics related to the Church of Scientology, the Scientology religion and its Founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

Combating Bigotry & Hate

STAND exposes those who lead efforts to misinform the public so as to stigmatize the Church and its members. We take action because, as history proves, to encroach on the religious liberty of one is to threaten the religious freedom of all. Help us end religious bigotry and hate.

One of the most basic human rights is freedom of religion, the right to practice a faith of one’s choice. Protecting that right is important to all. When members of one religionor ethnic or social groupare marginalized, others all too often can become targets of similar bigotry or even violence.
