They could stop suing everybody who disagrees with them, for one thing.

The Sun apology is funny.
Scientology has enough to worry about from Thetans, without more aliens giving them more problems.
They're under constant attack, people usually respond to attack with some kind of defense or counter-attack. A legal letter from a lawyer is hardly a
radical response considering the levels of crap they get from society...the post i originally answered, and the piss take from the Sun 'newspaper'
being just two examples.
Self defense is human nature really. Scientology types are no different to any other group with a strongly held belief system that is being vilified
and attacked. If someone had a pop at you, verbally or physically...would you stand still and do or say nothing? I doubt that many people would.
If Scientology followers walked into your church (assuming you have one) during a service and started taking the piss and claiming you are all
completely irrational nutjobs for believing a god floats around in a place called heaven and built everything in less than a week...would you just sit
back and say or do nothing? I doubt it.
They'd be run out of there in quick order and if there was a legal route to preventing them disrupting the church service again, the church would be
serving legal papers before you knew it.
I'd like to know why Scientologists are seemingly SO threatening to other groups and singled out as often as they are...it doesn't make much sense
to me, when i analyse almost every other religion or established and popular belief, they all share basics and teachings that sound and read as
completey irrational nonsense, made up by a child writing a story for a junior class project.
If the established groups have absolute courage of their convictions, why would they attack another group attempting to humiliate or destroy their
belief..perhaps those doing the attacking don't actually have much faith in what they preach, after all if they had, they'd allow god to sort them
Leave them alone. They are free to follow whatever belief system they choose...morally and legally.
Is this a good time to remind ourselves that the entire nation of America was formed exactly because the founders were also being persecuted for their
alternative belief systems?
