Scientology Guilty of "Fraud"

The "church" of Scientology was found guilty of fraud by a French court. The organization was fined $1,000,000 for defrauding gullible members. The court wanted to outright ban the organization but figured that it would just go 'underground' if it did.

I remember reading L. Ron Hubbard's book "Dianetics" when I was younger, and thinking that it was really off the wall. Hubbard's thesis is that there are "engrams" - small green and red that live in your head and influence your behavior.

There was a story today the director of the movie "Crash" has quit Scientology because it was anti-gay.

France fined them? Screw France, don't pay them sh*t. France lets felons from the U.S. hide there without fear of arrest or deportation. Commit crimes in the U.S. go to France and you're safe. Tell the french to go suck eggs.....
