Cult church censured on drug ads - 2003-03-27
A Church of Scientology advert claiming that its programmes had "salvaged" 250,000 people from drug abuse has been censured by the Advertising Standards Authority as unproved, following a complaint by the Church of England.
A Church of England spokesman said: "The truth is Scientology makes claims for their dangerous cult which they can neither prove nor substantiate. Drug users trying to kick the habit are vulnerable. This makes them perfect prey for cults."
