More on Anonymous vs Scientology

Scientology protests start across Australia |

Apparently the "Church" belives such protests are "religious hate crimes", seeing the tactics aren't that far removed and are less damaging than the "church's" own tactics against instigating groups or people who disagree with them I think it's a case of the "pot calling the kettle black".

In a statement released this afternoon, the Church of Scientology's Oceania branch condemned the actions of Anonymous and described the group as "cyber-terrorists".
"Anonymous is perpetrating religious hate crimes against Churches of Scientology and individual Scientologists for no reason other than religious bigotry," the statement said.

If you want a look at some of the tactic the church uses have a look at this: The BBC's Panorama documentary on the church made a year or too back.

Was just thinking, if you ever were going to write an autobiography, a good place to start would be to dig around with Scientology, and they'd do a whole lot of research for you!
