    Scientology Getting Sued

    Lawsuit goes after Tom Cruise, church

    Not sure he will win this, but interesting nonetheless.

    Scientology has a great deal, they are tax exempt and are hokey. Government has to be sitting there wanting to crush them but cant.

    Oh Brian, derailing my thread on post 2. I miss the thread that didnt exist as much as you do, but we must really try to push on for the good of the Thread That Didnt Exist, bretheren. It hurts too much.

    Back on topic, it is about time Scientology was sued. There has been some scary stuff going on in that "church" and it is time that this stuff is exposed.

    Thats the thing. It is a huge money maker and doesnt have to pay taxes. Before you run off and say that all churches could be categorized like this, you have to remember that this "belief" was based on a scifi book for profit.

    It amazes me they have gotten by with it for this long.

    Isn't the Bible the original scifi book?


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Let not turn this into a Bible is bs thread. At least a big part of the bible can be verified through history. Scientology was started by a man that just wanted to write scifi and earn a living.

    I refuse to call them a church, they are a cult IMO.

    Or write about an orphan discovering he has some hidden power. Both do quite well.
