Cult prosecutes teenager for telling the truth

I kid you not. Of course, it goes without saying that the cult in question is the Church of Scientology, who called out the City of London police to the entirely peaceful May 10th Anonymous protest, in order to arrest an unnamed 15 year-old who is now being prosecuted under the Public Order Act for carrying a placard that addressed the term cult to Scientology. Entirely appropriately, but why let the obvious get in the way of a good bit of litigation?

If you’d like to know more about this or upcoming actions against the cult of Scientology, please visit the Enturbulation site.

    I should probably hat tip the site which referred me to it in the first place. Scientology is a cult.

    The role of so-called “community leaders” is an interesting side issue here: even the Graun (or, ay least, one of their better columnists), has taken it up:

    …who also draws attention to the nonsense of so-called “community leaders”.
