Re: Press Release: Anon condemns Russia's banning of Scientology books fair point, how about this version then? FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Anti-Scientology activists hit out against Russian censorship Clearwater, Florida - April 22, 2010 - The anti-Scientology group Anonymous has come out in support of Scientology's right to freedom of speech. "People all over the world should be able to discover the true absurdity of Hubbard's phony religion, a dangerous cult which has become a threat to society, but forms the greatest threat to its own members", said an Anonymous spokesperson. Scientology, now a billion-dollar multinational corporation, was invented in 1952 by Lafayette Hubbard, a science-fiction writer whose works include "Typewriters In The Sky", "Beyond The Black Nebula" and "This Ship Kills!" Russian authorities, who banned 28 Scientology books which they claim contain calls "to commit crimes motivated by ideological and religious hatred" and "ideas justifying violence in general and in particular any methods of resistance against critics of Scientology", argue that "the works have clear as well as hidden calls for social and religious hatred". But Anonymous states that "Censorship can only raise Scientology's profile. We believe all Scientology materials should be freely available for public criticism and debate - in contrast to Scientology itself, which charges its followers up to $500,000 for them".
