    "THE Church of Scientology and seven of its French leaders went on trial on Monday on charges of organised fraud that could lead to an outright ban on the organisation in France. "

    Best news in ages.

    ... and now, a musical interlude live from David Miscavige's office..

    BBC video report here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/8067590.stm

    Then afterwards on the "similar videos" list it comes up with the John Sweeney Incident. Excellent.

    It will not hinder the progress of Scientology in Québec - Jean Larivière, DSA Montreal

    According to him Scientology is a ''highway'' that will go on for ''eternity''. Anonymous is interviewed in this article and ask why nothing is done here in Quebec. Scientology puts the blame on everyone else again (as they always do) and calls a past case against Hubbard in France a ''heresy trial''.

    Re: French trial: the media

    Irish media picked it up > Scientology on trial in France - The Irish Times - Mon, May 25, 2009

    And this in three hours ago by Inquirer.net (but not all that interesting yet, pretty much the same as the Reuter's reports)> Church of Scientology on trial in France - INQUIRER.net, Philippine News for Filipinos

    I notice the spokeshole in France for Co$ is claiming 45,000 members in France. Erm, riiiight. O-o
    Don't they ever tire of bad math and bad-counting-tech? A couple of the reports from yesterday also parrot the '12million' world wide followers, gah, they must be including all the critics and curious 'following the story' XP (Oh, same number the mormons claim according to one of the reports Lol..... Itch a Race!)

    USA Today> Spokes-Ho blabbers >
    Orly? After bribing and threatening? Must take cash and STFU?
    >http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2008-09-09-scientology-france_N.htm (yay me, my first Digg! :D)


    Another article quoted same cult-sucker as saying the trial was about 'heresy', had ta chuckle at the translation, we could only hope eh! :D
    ^that one is here>

    Wow!! It seems like yesterday that the press was too frightened to print anything negative about our friendly neighborhood cult.

    Still, valid point is valid.
    But what /does/ a group in the US have to do to be recognized as a religion for tax purposes?

    I'm seeing about 20 Orgs listed for France - 2,000+ in every single building? I don't think so...

    Re: French trial: the media

    Obviously they don't have as nearly as many as they claim, but if their true numbers are low then how do they accumulate so much wealth?

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it Tom Newton aka Alan Conner. I'd love to see how you spin this one with your faggotry.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30930420/

    "For each person who complains we have 100,000 ready to say nothing but good things about scientology," Agnes Bron, an official of the French organization, said before the trial, which is expected to last until June 17.

    FFS Who are these 100,000 imaginary people???????? Fucking cult lies like a rug.

    Re: French trial: the media

    How much wealth do you think they have ? I agree it is considerable but lets take a country like England with 1,700 scn. And lets say for argument that they ALL got to Clear (unlikely) at the tune of $100K (low end) that is something like $1.7B ? Then on top of that throw in some free slave labor to set off operation expenses. Add in donations for things that are not courses, E-meters, Books etc... and that is for less than 2,000 scilons. Not to mention the front groups and their donations from unsuspecting rubes, and all the scilons who have "dropped their meat body" and left their money to the "church", and exes who didn't get a refund over the last 59 years.

    * Before anyone checks my math I think it is $170M not $1.7B

    Re: French trial: the media

    So lots of media saying its going on...has anything said what actually happened on day 1?

    To be honest this case seems weak as hell. "I was forced to buy courses by someone that is now dead!" BUT, before you flame, I totally hope they get the french banhammer. Cult has gotten out of stickier legal situations though.
