Neil Gaiman's Nephew Fights for Scientology Marriage Rights in the UK - 2013-07-21
We've been getting a lot of mail from readers about an interesting legal case happening in London. We first mentioned it last December, and now it's reached a fascinating stage: The UK's highest court is having a hard time deciding whether or not Scientology's churches are "places of worship."
Before you assume that this is a major legal showdown which will affect the very existence of Scientology in England, put down the cans, step away from the e-meter, and take a deep breath.
Actually, the case is a bit of a stunt, it may hand the church in England something of a PR coup but will hardly stem the tide of its poor numbers there, and it will certainly have no effect on Scientology here in its home country of the United States, where this case would never happen.
