Michael Shermer does a great op-ed piece for the LA Times. A good critical examination of Scientology and the “Anonymous” movement that has recently protested its censorious actions over the notorious Tom Cruise video. The article skillfully examines how a protest against scientology can be seen as acceptable, while one against the top three monotheisms are not. At the same time making pertinant criticisms of scientology itself.

What caught my eye was the statement by the head of the church of Scientology International¬†that appears in the LA Times subsequent to the op-ed piece,¬† as follows…

After years of
discrimination in Australia, the Charity Commission
uses Scientology as the benchmark for the definition
of religion.

This may be worrying to most sane people.. but to all con artists out there – GREEN LIGHT. We can start our own religions, charge money and be tax exempt.
