UK MP drubs Scientology

During last night's debate on the Religious Hatred Bill Dr Tony Wright said:

"I have no hesitation in saying, safeguarded by privilege as I am, that I regard Scientology as an evil cult founded by an individual purely in the interests of enriching himself and sustained by those who are either wicked or wayward. But if the Bill were to pass and I were to repeat those comments outside this House as an ordinary civilian, I would lay myself open to prosecution simply for having sought to point out the dangers of a fraudulent organisation masquerading as a religion."

How fortunate you are to live in a country where those in power are not cowed by $ceientology. Alas I can't say the same for the US of A.
