Some see Scientology as business - 2007-12-15
Q.I read that Germany has outlawed Scientology, saying it is not a true religion. Why do we, the United States, let it have tax-exempt status as a church and everything else when it's not a religion?
A.The most recent action taken by the Federal Republic of Germany does not outlaw Scientology but may be a precursor to such an edict. German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said the group will be investigated because "the organization is not compatible with the constitution." The investigation may lead to a ban.
