TAOISEACH Bertie Ahern has angered the Church of Scientology by "snubbing" it in the official church-state dialogue process.

As part of his attempt to combat "aggressive secularism" in Irish society, he issued invitations to Catholic bishops, the Church of Ireland, the Jewish Chief Rabbi and Muslim leaders to take part in multi-faith talks.

But the Church of Scientology, which counts film stars such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its members, was left out.
