Gibney, who recently made the controversial HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, has called for the organisation's definition as a religion to be revoked, so that it becomes liable for taxation.

While he does believe that Scientology can be defined as a religion, he claims it fails to act in the way that a religion should, in order to be exempt from paying taxes. One of his key arguments concerns "private interests", as a religion should not in any way serve the needs of just one individual.
