November 18, 2006 Love, Scientology-Style Some marital advice Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes could receive today: Never go to bed angry at each other.

November 14, 1998 Hubbard's Teachings Guide Treatment Of Mental Illness The Fort Harrison has no provision for intravenous feedings. So, when McPherson refused to take nutrition, staffers tried to force it down her throat. Had McPherson been taken to a psychiatric facility, she probably would have received medication to calm her, psychiatrists say. She also might have been restrained, if necessary, and given intravenous feedings. Hubbard died in 1986, but his anti-psychiatry zeal has been passed on to his followers, who recently began a campaign to "take over the field of mental health by the year 2000." L. Ron Hubbard, Lisa McPherson, psychiatry, teachings
