    Education Minister critical of scientology "sect" propaganda pushed by former Turbonegro frontman Hans Erik Dyvik Husby, aka Hank von Helvete:

    "– Dette skal absolutt ikke inn i norsk skole. Det virker overfladisk og lite seriøst. Lærerne har et langt bedre materiale. Dette hører ikke hjemme som en del av et seriøst materiale, med mindre elevene skal læres opp i kritisk tankegang, sier Halvorsen."

    "This material does absolutely not belong in Norwegian schools. It seems shallow and cannot be taken seriously. Teachers have far better materials to work with. This does not belong in and amongst serious teaching materials, unless the students are being educated about the importance of critical thinking, says Kristin Halvorsen (educational minister)"

    Nice one Kristin, well done.

    Hehehe, seems good old Hank got played there...

    Paraphrasing Andreas: "CCHR is the same as CoS, they are both spawn of the same entity, and they use people like Husby without their knowledge. I am sure Husby means everything he says, but he does not see that he is being used."

    Hank: "Mr Heldal-Lund is stupid, and i dont think we should listen to him just because he has a blog."

    After showing a short clip of the über-american cheesy sales-pitchy "give us money and be happy" videos from TWTH, most norwegians are likely to judge Husby as a bit of a fool. He is now a prime target for any norwegian comedian looking for some new material. Nice.

    Andreas was also interviewed in an article for Dagbladet on saturday (don't know if it was related to this) but I can't seem to find it online.

    My unqualified attempt at an english translation from the Norwegian source and MS/Google auto-translator mash-ups (feel free to correct)......

    Oh, and yes, the band Turboneger that Hans-Erik Dyvik Husby was former singer for, really does cross-translate as "Turbonegro". Also, back then he preferred to be known by the name of "Hank Von Helvete" or "Hank von[from] Hell".

    Backtracking a week, here are the Dagbladet articles that I couldn't bring up before, with a mostly robot translation in the quote box (which I'll try to tweak if I get time or if I get some help).
    First-up is the main one from 29th October....

    Finally, a comment/editorial article from 7th November....

    Hans Erik Dyvik Husby er blitt rusfri med scientologimetoder. Det fritar verken ham eller scientologikirken for kritikk.
