    if the Frenchie Clams were smart they would Have Hired Dee Schneider from Twisted Sister
    to front their little protest

    they could have joined hands and sang the old Twisted Sisters hit tune
    Were not gonna Take... no we ain't gonna fake it....were not gonna take it any moreeeeeee...

    It's more than the reported police's estimate (100) but less than scientology's claimed number (350) in the AFP report.
    Count the number across the first row then estimate the randomly more sparse behind and the answer is somewhere in between.

    More to the point: If they think this is such a terrible injustice then where are the "45,000" scientologists, reported in the same news articles, that the cult claims to have in France (of the "12 million" they claim to have in the world). Such a "heresy" would surely warrant the multi-billion dollar cult bussing in scientologists from all over Europe, wouldn't it? Of course, they can't do this because it is a lie. Remember, at one of the previous St.Hill IAS annual events some dox appeared revealing that they had actually used a casting agency to recruit audience members because they don't have enough scientologists in the whole of europe to fill a few thousand seats at a major event for their so called "religion".

    It's kind of poetic really. I mean there they are pissing and moaning in front of the seat of justice yet at the same time lying through their teeth about how many actual scientologists they have. That's scientology for you.

    Also, in France, how can it be a "heresy" if it is not even regarded as a church/religion there. It's classified as a cult group.

    Also, also, if L.Ron Hubbard does "come back" in the form of another meat body, can somebody alert the police because I do believe he's been wanted since his 1978 conviction and 4 year sentence, in absentia, for fraud.

    Can the guys on the Francais sector of this forum galaxy ID any of those as being non-French or just actors hired to protest?

    Compared to the first photos from the scilon source, it looks like a smaller gaggle in those photos.

    I'm preeeeeetty sure they are no "religion whose rights are recognized" here in Germany. But then again it could be me.
  14. The UK does not have the concept of a 'state-recognised' religion.

    The UK Charity Commissioner has deemed that Scientology does not benefit the public.

    I don't think that's it: my understanding is that if this objection stands -- if they
    did not file their appeal properly -- then not only does the Celebrity Centre's
    appeal fall but it has no recourse to the Cour de Cassation (the Supreme Court)
    -- precisely because they did not file their appeal properly. That would mean
    that the original conviction and sentence would become definitive.

    Bear in mind we are only talking about the Celebrity Centre (ASES): the appeals filed
    by the SEL bookshop and the individual defendants would still go ahead. But from
    Scientology's point of view, ASES's conviction for organised fraud is arguably the
    most damaging of those it is fighting.

    I would not expect this issue to prolong the trial itself. It may simply be dealt with
    when the appeal court hands down its ruling in the case probably next year (though
    I suppose they might conceivably settle the matter at tomorrow's hearing).

    With the defendants and their lawyers still absent, the case should wind up Thursday,
    possibly Friday.

    They claim 45,000 in France and only that many showed up to defend their organization? Claiming a high number but only having few to show for it doesn't look very good for them. If I heard that and saw those protesters, my first thought would be "I guess most of their members don't really care, or they don't really exist."
  18. Anon'R'us Member



    Wouldn't that be the perfect occaison for a raid or flash raid? Since management is always trying to prevent their followers from seeing the protesters and their signs (you know, blind malfunctions, coincidental vans...) some very few Anons with nice informative signs right opposite of this crowd woud score some major win.

    "As a Scientologist since many years (20+), seeing what some newspapers and individuals say about our religion never ceases to amaze me, these people members must be "visiting" a Church of Scientology with blinders on. It's either that or we Scientologists are just totally incapable of explaining what we're really doing."

    FIFY and highlighted the obvious

    Doinitwrong, especially insofar as they are protesting as victims. J'Accuse has way more traction than "Nous accusons!" Lrn2Zola.

    It would be more accurate for them to have signs that say "we reserve the right to assert our pseudo-religious rites to scam and abuse the wogs".

    French media are posting a very brief article reporting that the chief prosecutor at Scientology's appeal trial is asking the court to fine Scientology's two principal entities in France, the Celebrity Centre and its SEL bookstore, one million euros and 500,000 euros respectively. The fines handed down at the end of the first trial in 2009 were 400,000 and 200,000 euros.
