If, as the law supports, a minor child is not capable/responsible/aware enough to go to jail for crimes, know when they want to have sex, or get drunk, or smoke, etc., how is it that they can be exposed to religion and expected to make the right choices? Should it not be illegal for a child to be approached by a recruiter for Scientology (or any other religion)? If there were a law against it, a religious group could lose their church status for violations, no? Have to pay taxes, yes? The same law would give authorities and individuals greater leverage against cults (as most religions are) who use isolation to brainwash, why is RICO the only law that is usable in most cases? It would not be an infringement on the freedom of religion as any parent would continue to have the right to teach their child what they believe. And recent years have shown the courts open to overriding the parents religion to protect children, as with medical treatment. So, would it be crazy to push for a law that makes it as illegal to bring a minor to a church or for a church to approach a minor as it would to take them to a bar? The bar would lose their license and so could the church. It seems like a law that would enforce itself, because despite any angry parents, no church will risk their status as a non profit. Bottom line is that If minors are not capable of deciding what is right for their minds or their bodies, how is it they can make a decision as critical as the path to god/enlightenment/whatever? If Scientology sees a benefit to approaching minors (which I am sure they invested millions figuring out), you had better believe there is a benefit to keeping them away from them, and trying to talk sense to the parents isnt going to do anything at all. So... Any lawyers out there feeling especially litigious today?
