WASHINGTON (AP) _ A German lawmaker defended his country's regulation of the Church of Scientology as a business, charging Friday that the organization sells a psychological product as addictive as tobacco.

Freimut Duve, a Social Democrat in the German Parliament, also attacked Scientologists who claim they're being persecuted.

"This company is using millions of dollars to launch a strategic attack on my country," Duve told a news conference. "I think it's awful to allow such a company to be shielded under the cover of a church."
