Not been a good week for the clams.
But! I have an assertion for you: Scientology is a religion.
There, I said it. Think about it though: something made up by a bloke, that scams money off people, intimidates them if they try to leave and is based on a ludicrous premise. Heck, a court in the UK says we’re even allowed to call it a cult.
Sounds like a religion to me.
So fine, let’s put it on an equal footing with other sky fairy stories. Worried about tax breaks? Easy, take the breaks away from the others and level the playing field. OK, so milking a few Hollywood nutjobs for millions isn’t going to put them in the Vatican league just yet but there’s plenty of time.
