June 1, 1999Scientology distributes a leaflet showing a photograph Scientology distributes a leaflet showing a photograph of Bonnie Woods above the words "Hate Campaigner Comes to Town". A group of Scientologists put the leaflet in the mail boxes of the Woods' neighbors and handed it out to members of the public on East Grinstead High Street. The leaflet described Mrs Woods as a "hate campaigner" and a "deprogrammer"; it also cast doubt on the sincerity of her claims to be a born-again Christian. Six years later, Scientology will admit these allegations to be false and apologize in open court for libelling her.
