Germany to outlaw Scientology

Berlin: German officials say they are taking steps to outlaw the Church of Scientology.

According to the German Government, Scientology is not a religion, but rather a commercial enterprise designed to take advantage of vulnerable people.

Full story.

Comercial entiprise? I would have thought that a scientology parisoner would get the same out of their membership as a christian would out of their church... This will likely set an interesting presadence and hopefully set in motion the wheels for the abolition of tax exemtion status for all churches.

I would much rather see charitable organisations receive tax exemption for their work than the church for 'saving souls'.

Although I think you'll find most churches do in fact perform charitable services, or at least most mainstream ones... Kind of hard to ignore the Salvos, Anglicare, etc, isn't it?

Most churches do perform charitable actions, however, most religions do not require money to join/advance in that religion.

Quote toward the bottom of the link from Readers Digest about Hubbard describing a religion as a good way to make money.
