Blog: Who Are The Bigots? - 2015-10-14
The church of scientology loves to toss around the term "bigot" to describe anyone who expresses opinions that differ from their own. They shout long and hard that those bigots are discriminating against them and are "attacking their religion."
But the truth of the matter is that the church is the source of a great deal of discrimination against those who do NOT wish to be scientologists. Such people, especially those who may have once called themselves scientologists, are singled out for disconnection, libel, harassment, trickery and various forms of fair game. Of course, when the church engages in these activities they proclaim they are simply exercising their constitutional rights to freedom of religion and/or freedom of speech. For a perfect example, see the arguments they presented to the court in Texas claiming their repulsive "squirrel busting" and fair game tactics were "religious activities."
Of course, there has still been no final determination of that matter, though the Judge was not impressed with this argument. It remains on appeal.
