The Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination (STAAD) League has been playing the victim card for a while now and have come up with a new tactic of orchestrating a letter writing campaign to advertisers on The Aftermath.

You may recall their earlier "victory" of claiming to get copies of People magazine removed from the shelves of a Target store because Leah Remini was on the cover. It was a "huge blow for religious freedom" — even though it almost certainly didn't happen — but didnt do much for the concept of freedom of speech that scientology spouts as one of their causes.

Now they are providing form letters to their members to send out to advertisers. Of course, when they say they are calling for a boycott they don't mention that this amounts to perhaps 100 people who will not be buying a Hyundai (most scientologists use virtually all of their disposable income for scientology — they are not big new car buyers, so out of the 100 they probably won't lose a single sale...)
