ADELAIDE, Australia, July 10 (UPI) -- The South Australian government said Friday that the education minister had a right to call Scientologists "bastards" in a video posted on YouTube.

Jane Lomax-Smith made the comments in May when she encountered demonstrators from a group that calls itself Anonymous outside the Church of Scientology headquarters in Adelaide, The Australian reports. Lomax-Smith asked the masked protesters if they were related to people who had been "sucked in" by Scientology.

"They should be taxed, the bastards," she added. "They shouldn't be tax-free; we're subsidizing them. I like your masks."
