“You—alive and well—are the most important gift anyone can give their mother,” say Scientologists active with The Truth About Drugs campaign.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — With overdose deaths spiking across the country, some of the most tragic stories involve teens dying of fentanyl poisoning from counterfeit pills sold over social media. Churches of Scientology, active in drug education and prevention for more than 40 years, work with community partners to prevent these senseless tragedies by raising awareness about drugs and helping youth make the self-determined decision to live drug-free.

Over the past year, an alarming and deadly trend has surfaced.

There is no greater catastrophe for a mother than to discover her child unresponsive from an overdose and beyond help.

One such casualty, covered by a Placerville, California, TV station, was Zach, 17, a straight-A student, athlete and talented musician. He was all set to graduate with honors this June and head off to college. Over winter break, his father Chris found him slumped over his desk. Zach wasn’t breathing and CPR didn’t bring him around. Chris and Zach’s mom Laura later learned he died after taking a fentanyl-laced counterfeit Percocet tablet bought through social media.

Some 600 miles north, tragedy struck another family. “It used to be kids made mistakes and learned from them,” says Jennifer from Beaverton, Oregon, mother of Cal. “With fentanyl, you make a mistake, you die.” Cal’s dad describes his son as someone who liked to stand out—a great athlete with a love of theater, both on stage and behind the scenes. “Friendship was one of Cal’s superpowers,” says his dad. Cal came home from college for winter break on a Thursday. On Monday, he overdosed. “The best we can tell, he sought out some oxy from the street dealer on Snapchat,” says his father. “He thought he was taking Oxycontin and he ended up with fentanyl.”

How can drug prevention help? According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime: “Prevention strategies based on scientific evidence working with families, schools, and communities can ensure that children and youth, especially the most marginalized and poor, grow and stay healthy and safe into adulthood and old age. For every dollar spent on prevention, at least ten can be saved in future health, social and crime costs.”

When young people are provided with the truth about drugs—factual information on what drugs are and what they do—usage rates drop commensurately.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s Truth About Drugs program is based on the observation that no one, and especially not a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or can’t do. Instead, the Truth About Drugs materials provide the facts that empower youth to decide for themselves not to take drugs. And that decision can mean the difference between their sharing Mother’s Day with their families for decades to come and senseless and irreversible loss.

In his research into the devastating impact of drugs on society, author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard concluded that “the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs.”

To combat this epidemic, the Church of Scientology sponsors the largest nongovernmental anti-drug information and prevention campaign on Earth. The Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center prints and ships Truth About Drugs fact-filled high-impact educational materials free of charge to all who request them. To date, this has totaled some 143 million Truth About Drugs educational booklets in 25 languages. And Drug-Free Word’s award-winning public service announcements have reached more than 260 million viewers.

Scientology Churches work with community, religious and civic leaders to coordinate drug education and prevention programs. Each year, before the pandemic, Scientology Churches hosted drug prevention panels, conferences and open house programs, including annual International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking conferences, which will resume as soon as protocols allow. Scientology Churches are configured to provide ample facilities for cooperative community efforts, including conference and seminar rooms where those with a passion to address this crisis can tackle it together.

‘Lives and Minds of C.W. Männe BINGE’ Releases Chapter 20 Two Faced

Biiiggggg boooyyyyy..where are you? Biiiggggg boooyyyyy!”

— C.W.'s Mother

DELAFIELD, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATE, May 7, 2021 / — Brainiac Productions LLC, Christopher William Mahne, and Sir David Michael Robinson today announced the release of Chapter 20 Two Faced from ‘Lives and Minds of C.W. Männe BINGE’ on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and audio content on Soundcloud along with SFX video content on YouTube and IGTV.

This chapter depicts the complexity of C.W.’s relationship with his own mother. She appears in the perimeter, calling to him like it’s a game of hide and seek. “Biiiggggg boooyyyyy…where are you? Biiiggggg boooyyyyy!” When she does see him, she turns from sweet to sour, then acting in a brutal way, to try and take him from the plane…from his father. This is the way mothers will wrestle, at any cost, to claim the loyalty of a child. In the doing of this, she is literally tearing the little boy to shreds, but won’t stop until she wins.

She is described as ‘having two faces’, which is the truth of women in divorce. There is a face for the child and there is a face for the ex-husband. The face for the child is loving…the face for the husband is a nightmare. In this chapter, the ADULT C.W. sees both faces at the same time….he sees a monster. The boy then just WANTS HIS CRAYON…The crayon is the symbol FOR KEEPING A RECORD OF WRONGS. The crayon is a way of continuing to REMEMBER THE WRONGS, until you are in a prison of bitterness.

Sir David said “Anyone who has lived through a divorce, understands what happens to mothers. They can be fiercely possessive of children, angry at ex-husbands, and also incredibly loving. This kludged personality can make it impossible for a child to find stability in relationships with such mothers. In BINGE we personified this in the introduction of the woman with two faces.”

Mahne passionately expressed with LOVE that "All of my enemies have become my greatest teachers, thank you with all my LOVE…"

The Grangita is entitled ‘Two Faced’.

Book reviewers, bloggers, journalists, and other media contacts who would like to receive a copy and/or schedule an interview with the authors can email inquiries.

Author of Children’s Religious Books Deanna Dorr Siler to be Featured on Close Up Radio

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — The Bible is “the greatest story ever told,” but most eight-year-olds have difficulty reading it. Religious books for children help kids engage with the stories of The Bible in a way they can understand them.

Deanna Dorr Siler is an author religious books for children. Her first book It’s a Mystery helps children understand the life of Christ.

“It was a mystery when it happened, but if you look closely, it was as plain as the nose on our faces,” says Deanna. “God wants us to solve the mystery. By going through the 20 Mysteries of the Rosary, even young children can solve the mystery that is Jesus Christ.”

Deanna was born and raised in a strict Irish Catholic farm family. She and her husband Bill were married for over 60 years, with five children. Sadly, Deanna’s two eldest sons died as teenagers: her first son Kurt succumbed to Reye's Syndrome; her second son Craig was killed in an automobile accident just three years later.

“There's a major difference between standing next to the hospital bed watching your child die and getting the horrible phone call all parents dread,” says Deanna. “You can't do that and survive unless you have God within you from the time you were born. And He has been with me every step of the way.”

“When we lost the boys, I began to realize the presence of God in my life. I’ve come to understand that God will never ask you to do anything you can't do. It may seem impossible to you at the time, but he will always give you the ability and the grace to do it. And certainly in my life, I have seen that many, many times, and that’s what inspired me to write this little book for children.”

A retired teacher, Deanna spent 30 years in education. One day, a colleague had been struggling to teach the 20 Mysteries of the Rosary to her young students in a way they could engage with it.

“Teaching is a work of heart,” recalls Deanna. “What is the first thing that you say to your child when you get home? ‘What did you learn in school today?’ These children could say they learned about Jesus, how he was born and died and rose again and ascended into heaven. I gave her a teaching packet with appropriate questions to ask the little ones so that they could become engaged in the conversation. I gave a presentation on the material and all the teachers said, ‘Deanna, you really need to publish this.”

Deanna is preparing to publish a sequel due next spring entitled It’s a Journey about the Crucifixion.

“God knows everything,” says Deanna. “He knew that Kurt and Craig were not going to live long enough to be adults. As we grow older and re-examine some of these mysteries, they begin to more sense. That's what the life of Christ is all about. No matter what you suffer there will be a happy ending so long as you accept it and offer it up to God. That is the example of Christ, the answer to the mystery: What if God was one of us?”

Close Up Radio will feature Deanna Dorr Siler in an interview with Jim Masters on May 10th at 2pm EDT

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio

Protect and Serve: Law Enforcement Responds to New Challenges

Sheriff Mikesell joined the Truth & Liberty livecast with Andrew Wommack and Richard Harris to discuss a number of issues, including the recent challenges facing local law enforcement.

Official Logo for Truth & Liberty Coalition

Your law enforcement officers have to have your support

People have to get involved in their communities and they have to get involved in the politics.”

— Teller County, Colorado, Sheriff Jason Mikesell

WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2021 / — The “Defund the Police” movement has gained widespread exposure due to negative news media reports and as a result is causing serious effects on communities, according to Teller County, Colorado, Sheriff Jason Mikesell.

According to Sheriff Mikesell, reports show enforcement officers leaving departments in droves.

“The less law enforcement out there protecting your rights, you’re losing your freedom,” said the sheriff.

Sheriff Mikesell recently joined a Truth & Liberty Coalition livecast to discuss a number of issues, including law enforcement challenges in America.

“Those men and women are putting their lives on the line for people that are now saying, ‘We’re not going to fund you, we’re not going to support you, we’re not going to help you,’” he said. “‘In fact, we’re going to come after you, we’re going to terrorize you, we’re going to put you in the national media.’”

Through their Monday livecasts with distinguished and topical guests like Sheriff Mikesell, the Truth & Liberty Coalition is working to equip people to stand for Christian values on principles in the culture.

“Educating people of faith to engage in public affairs is important for maintaining biblical values in our society,” said Richard Harris, executive director, Truth & Liberty Coalition.

Mikesell said the response from some public officials has been to limit the effectiveness of police departments. Cities that are defunding law enforcement are seeing their downtown areas destroyed because officers are restricted from policing.

“Your law enforcement officers have to have your support,” said Sheriff Mikesell “Most of the administrations in those police departments work for a city council or city administrator. And the police chiefs don’t have the right to say, ‘No.’”

Sheriff Mikesell also discussed effects of the border crisis on the community. Over the years, Sheriff Mikesell and deputies have worked to eliminate drug cartels from Teller County. A number of the cartel participants were identified as illegal aliens. According to the sheriff, open borders will allow those same cartels “to push things across the border quicker, faster, easier.”

“People have to get involved in their communities and they have to get involved in the politics,” said Mikesell. “I know nobody wants to get involved in politics – I never wanted to get involved in politics – but it is the only way to change your country and save it.”

Watch the full episode at the Truth & Liberty website

“We find often that Christians don’t know where to start,” said Harris. “Our goal is to educate audiences and connect with resources and groups across the nation to help them impact their own spheres of influence.”

Scientology Volunteer Ministers: Looking Back—Ten Years After the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami

First to respond were local Scientology Volunteer Ministers who surveyed the damage and coordinated what assistance officials needed and wanted.

Despite the threat of nuclear disaster after the 2011 Japan tsunami, Scientology Volunteer Ministers responded to the needs of the ravaged country.

SHINJUKU, TOKYO, JAPAN, May 5, 2021 / — First were the images of 30-foot walls of water wiping away entire towns and lifting 20-ton ships, propelling them 100 yards inland. Next was the news of the meltdown of three nuclear reactors. But with 20,000 people dead or missing and some 500,000 displaced, Scientology Volunteer Ministers immediately mobilized to help despite the danger.

A supply base was established at the Church of Scientology Tokyo to oversee the delivery of aid. Local Scientology Volunteer Ministers contacted officials to find out what assistance they needed.

A 17-man team of the legendary Mexican Los Topos search and rescue specialists, who have partnered with Volunteer Ministers disaster response teams since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, were immediately flown to Japan by International Scientology Volunteer Ministers headquarters in Los Angeles. Los Topos met with the Japanese army and began searching for survivors trapped beneath the wreckage—work memorialized in a National Geographic documentary.

Some 140 Volunteer Ministers from Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States helped run shelters in Kesennuma, Sendai, Watari, Onagawa, Ishinomaki and Idda. They organized delivery of food, water and supplies. They took part in the arduous cleanup of towns and villages that were destroyed.

In a city where elderly residents were stranded in their homes by floodwaters and impassable roads, Volunteer Ministers organized a fleet of bicycles loaded with supplies to bring vital provisions.

But while the physical needs were dramatic, the shock and loss survivors experienced was even more intense.

Volunteer Ministers are trained to provide Scientology assists—techniques developed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that help address the spiritual and emotional factors in stress and trauma.

“I cannot believe I have received such a helpful service in a time like this,” said one person after his assist. “It eased my feeling of shock," said another. A man whose inn was swept away in the tsunami began his assist in sorrow and walked away humming, telling the Scientology Volunteer Minister he planned to rebuild as soon as possible.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers provided more than 12,000 assists and trained 1,500 volunteers from other relief organizations, community groups and schools in Volunteer Minister techniques. A Hashikami City Councilor told a Volunteer Minister that theirs is an important service the Japanese people can find nowhere else.

The official in charge of the Onagawa Town disaster effort expressed his appreciation for the help of the Scientology Disaster Response Team in a letter stating, “I have heard many disaster victims say they feel good, relaxed, relieved from body pain and healed from the trauma of this disaster after this group delivered the technology called assists developed by L. Ron Hubbard.”

Four years later, at the grand opening of the Church of Scientology Tokyo in Shinjuku, Mr. Masami Saito, then a member of the legislature for Miyagi Prefecture and recently elected mayor of Ishinomaki City, recalled his own experience with the Scientology Volunteer Ministers. “Following the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami that swept my city away, your members, the Volunteer Ministers, were there clearing away debris from our collapsed house in the hope that our family members were there,” he said. “Your humanitarian attitude was touching to the core. You even provided bicycles to people through the city that had this little message that meant so much to us: ‘Don’t give up, Japan!’”

The Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers program is a religious social service created in the mid-1970s by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. It constitutes one of the world’s largest independent relief forces.

With the events of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige called on Scientologists to redouble their efforts to aid their fellow man. He issued a directive entitled “The Wake-Up Call,” which inspired astonishing growth within the Volunteer Minister program and its international disaster response.

A Volunteer Minister’s mandate is to be “a person who helps his fellow man on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.” Their creed: “A Volunteer Minister does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence. Rather, he is trained to handle these things and help others achieve relief from them and new personal strength as well.”

Stellar Award-Nominated Group, Trilogy, “Keep It Movin” With The Release Of Their Anticipated Album “Blank Script”

Trilogy "Blank Script" Cover

Trilogy “Blank Script” Cover


NASHVILLE, TN, USA, May 5, 2021 / — Crisp harmonies, heart-moving lyrics, and an innovative, fresh production that elevates their distinct sound…We would expect nothing less of the latest release from Gospel-charting sibling trio, TRILOGY.

Hailing from Washington, D.C., Stephen, Sierra and Shante Leslie, bring TRILOGY’s sound to life. Their Gospel roots and perfected harmonies have resulted in a unique sound that can be heard throughout their upcoming release Blank Script. Crafted by award-winning producer Dana Sorey (Maranda Curtis, Anthony Brown & Group Therapy), Blank Script features nine intricate tracks that offer a huge dose of encouragement and showcases the breadth of the group’s talent.

The opening track “Keep It Moving” is the follow-up single to the group’s stunning first release from Blank Script, “Jesus Loves Me,” which saw early adds that quickly broke Billboard’s Gospel Top-100 chart, positioning and peaking at #28. “Keep It Movin” quickly climbs the Billboard Gospel Chart, paying homage to the 70s as it covers the hit song “Shake Your Groove Thing” by legendary duo Peaches and Herb. The familiar melody, in addition to the faith-based lyric change, make this the perfect opener for the uplifting album.

“We are paying homage to our roots, and at the same time expressing who we are in the
present,” said Stephen about the latest single. “With all that is going on in the world today, we
wanted to provide a song that will be uplifting and that reinforces positivity, hope and faith. It’s
the perfect soundtrack for these trying times.”

The Leslie’s grew up in a household where appreciation for music was inherent and church was woven into their lives. Their grandfather, Bishop John T. Leslie, Jr., pastored The Church of Jesus Christ in Southeast, D.C., where their mom was on the praise and worship team and their uncle, Professor Wilbur Belton, Jr., was minister of music. Additionally, their dad is an accomplished musician who was a mainstay in the jam sessions of good friend and Trilogy producer Dana Sorey, Tye Tribbett and members of one of the greatest bands in Gospel music: SoundCheck.

With this musical saturation, it comes as no surprise that the Leslie’s would form their own group. First introduced to the public as STL3, the group received a stellar award-nomination (Youth Project of the Year) for their debut album All Things New. Now known as TRILOGY, the trio has partnered with Nashville-based independent label United Alliance Music Group to release “Jesus Loves Me,” and their second studio album Blank Script available on all streaming platforms Friday April 23rd.
