BONN, GERMANY BONN, Germany (AP) _ Germany rejected U.S. criticism of its treatment of Scientologists, saying Tuesday it still considers church members a threat to the nation.

The U.S. State Department's annual report on human rights around the world, due this week, says Germany discriminates against Scientologists.

The German government says the church _ which has 30,000 members in Germany _ is largely a money-making organization with some organized crime traits that seeks world domination and threatens democracy. Scientologists deny the claims.
