By Sarah B. Johnson, Associated Press Editor In the early 2000s, a group of gay men started calling themselves the Church of Scientology.
The group was based on a group known as the Knights of Malta, which has been linked to the Mafia.
It was a secretive sect, but one that didn’t hesitate to speak openly about its beliefs.
The Knights of Maltese members were a loose coalition of former members of the Italian military, including a former general and a former director of the Sicilian police.
It wasn’t just the Knights that were involved.
There was also a secret Scientology office in the town of Pisa, Italy.
They’d all worked together in Italy as police officers.
But the Knights had their own peculiarities.
They called themselves the Order of Malta and wore a black mask to hide their identities.
The Order was an elite organization that focused on the promotion of “The Truth” and “The Way of the Sea,” Scientology’s most popular doctrines.
But that’s not how the organization was perceived by its members.
They believed that Scientology was a cult that abused people and used violence.
The church denied the accusations, and it was a highly visible organization, with a cult-like reputation.
Its followers were mostly women and people of color, who were sometimes called the “Sea Org.”
Many of the Knights believed that the Knights’ actions and rhetoric were antithetical to the church’s teachings.
They also believed that members of Scientology were paid to do the talking.
The “Sea Organization” would take in anyone who wanted to join.
And, like Scientology itself, they were a highly secretive group.
In the summer of 2007, the Knights called for an international conference to discuss their views and the problems they believed the church was causing.
They were going to hold their first conference in Europe, and the Knights wanted to speak at it.
As part of the deal, the members of each country would be allowed to bring their own microphones.
But they had to bring a recording device and pay the organization to rent a booth.
The meeting was set for July 13, 2007, in the Italian town of Campania.
In fact, there were no microphones.
There were only computers and microphones.
At the same time, the organizers were preparing to host an international meeting in the Vatican.
There, the pope had recently sent his secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, to talk to the Knights.
They knew that the meeting would be secret, so they were trying to make it look like they were having a real conversation.
But there were a few key differences between the Knights and the Vatican, and they made them very clear.
First, the Vatican had a history of supporting the Mafia, which was part of what made the Knights so popular in Italy.
The Italian police had long been involved in protecting the mafia, and many members of this group were members of that group.
It also meant that the Vatican wanted the Knights to play a prominent role in its politics.
This was a major departure from Scientology’s mission.
In Scientology, people are expected to work for the church.
And in the case of the Catholic Church, it’s believed that people are born to believe that they are chosen by God to lead a life of service to humanity.
But in Italy, the Church was deeply rooted in organized crime.
The Vatican had to work hard to make sure that it wasn’t a target of the mafia.
This, of course, meant that it was very secretive about its operations.
But even more importantly, it also meant the Knights would be seen as the voice of the Church.
The Catholic Church was a very powerful organization in Italy and was able to work with its local police and other law enforcement officials to keep its members from speaking out.
The idea was that this was a safe space for people who might speak out.
And when people did speak out, they had an easy way of proving their point.
It’s important to understand how the Vatican viewed the Knights as a political tool.
They had been using the Knights for years, and in the early 1980s, the organization tried to establish a presence in Italy by staging a number of demonstrations and holding conferences.
But it was just a way to build support for the Church, said Giovanni Bussini, a Vatican historian who wrote about the Knights in his book The Vatican Conspiracy: The Church, the Mafia and the Mafia in the United States.
This tactic worked, and after a while, the Italian government recognized that it didn’t have to be afraid of the Mafia anymore.
In 1984, the group was banned from holding conferences in Italy under the criminal code.
But because it was an organized crime group, there was no way the government could ban it from holding such meetings, said Bussetti.
And so, after the ban was lifted in 1992, the church and the police continued to work together.
But things didn’t get much better for the Knights over the years.
In 1999, the Pope’s secretary of defense, Gennaro Calabria,
