As the Church of Scientology sees it, Germany today is a repressive and intolerant place, not much different from the Third Reich of more than half a century ago in its hostility toward racial and religious minorities.

As the German government sees it, the Church of Scientology is not a church at all, but rather a dangerous cult that uses religion to cloak its money-making schemes while exploiting gullible members and threatening local communities.

Of such contradictory viewpoints are titanic feuds made, and the bitter quarrel between Scientology and German officials is now approaching Hatfield-McCoy intensity.
