Great find, SystemiK!!!

Hope this can be used by the bloke in England, in his defense...if someone provides a link to him.

I agree, great find systemiK.
Awesome interview with Jason Beghe.
No idea who the guy is, but he's obviously very astute. Great insight into the inside.

Sad to see the Cos go after 15 year old guy.... doesn't suprise me at all.

Scientology is a cult (more like a money making scam dressed up as a cult) that's the only thing one can conclude upon careful inspection of their actions and beliefs.

Go Anons !, keep it up, the Co$ will keep on foot-bulleting themselves with actions such as these.

Scientology is a waste of time, and should be banned. It's a money making scam of the highest order, but if some of that money is being used to help fund those in power, then it seems those in power will use the police to help protect the fraudsters in the first place.

Unfortunately, we live in such a dumb world, that if you accept Jedi Knight's as a bona-fide religion based on numbers of people who claim it these days, you have to accept Scientology too.

In the USA at least, the Right to worship as you choose is specified in the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land (although you wouldn't know it by the government's violations of the Constitution). Therefore, Scientology cannot be banned outright, but individual members of the "religion" still have to answer for the crimes they commit against the Rights of other Citizens!...At least in theory, when you consider the government's own consistent violations against the Constitution.

It's already happened in the US...

During one of the previous Anonymous protest, two were arrested in... South Carolina I believe, Youtube videos document the story and outraged response from the public can also be found there.

anonymous is alive and well.
and some are on the inside.

This is a wakeup call I'm sure. I will be posting the link to this newstory and see if the troops can rally again.

obviously we are not gone, if a protest was still going on in London.
Its just the western anons who have given up and moved on to more humourous subjects.

A cult is a cult is a cult, no matter how you hide it.

everyone should visit Operation Clambake to get the real truth about the so-called Church of Scientology....

Facing prosecution for calling an religious organization a cult? Whatever happened to free speech and being allowed opinions? The government should check the situation and the act on the outcome!

A women in America lost her job over bumperstickers about pedophiles, so if that can happen in America I suppose you could be arrested for a bumpersticker in New Zealand

I used to go to "This Is London" message boards. Havn't been there in quit a while, so thought I would go there to see whqt folks are saying about this. Here is what I got:

"This is London's message boards are now closed."

So it seems that freedom of speech is being cancelled over there.

After reading the OP, I thought to myself that there must be more to it than just what was stated, but after reading the entire article, I am flabbergasted. He was indeed issued a court summons just for having the word "cult" on his placard.

Now, this was after a warning that the use of that word to describe the CULT was not allowed, but still?!?!?! How can they ban the use of a common english language word? I could understand it if the word used was profanity, but Cult? C'mon, this just stinks to high heaven.

Let's hope the gets the backing of whatever organizations they have over there that deal with free speech, etc, and fights this all the way.

Me thinks that there must be some, scientologists high up in the police force for this to be allowed.

Given the cash that the CoS cult has I wouldn't be suprised if a few donations to the Policemans Xmas Ball are made by direct debit each month!
