Scientology is also illegal in Germany as they view it as a cult.
Good for France. You can't hide behind 'religion' when you steal money.


Christianity manages that quite well ^_~


-cough- well that's not what I meant but whatever lol. Any religious group, whether it be Christianity, Islam, heck even Buddhism, if there are a group of people exploiting others, then I hope someone takes them down. But as a Christian, I'd have to say on the whole religion has done a lot of good things (as well as some bad).

can some explain what exactly is scientology, all I know is that it has something to do with aliens, hypnosis, volcanoes, and depression.

This sort of racket is commonplace here. People will do anything for money even if they set a false religion to milk their follower's wealth.

That's a lot of money... good for France.

no I am not a scientologist (i think they are a little loopty, if ya know what i mean)xD
but i do like to defend people- especially if I think they are being treated unfair


It's not like banning Christianity, because they didn't ban Scientology. Thy banned the Church of Scientology, the actual organization. People can still practice whatever faith they want on their own. I think the idea of people following a religious organization is ridiculous, religion should be a personal thing without anyone else telling you what to do or think.

They should ban the Catholic Church while they're at it too.


I understood that they were banning the church- not the religion- but still, I think its a bunch of crap to ban someone's religious organization.

i can't say I agree on that either. Are your suggesting they ban Catholic Churches over the child abuse stuff (?),
because really in every religion, or even non religious organization (schools, parks, hell a weird relative)
theres always that creep you find out years later were molesting children.

However, I do think they should do background checks and spontaneous check ups on ALL religious leaders
simply to make sure that :

A) noone is being molested
B)no one is stealing from the donation box- charity
C)No one is doing anything harmful or illegal to anyone

and if they do break these rules, don't ban the organization- BAN the jerks who were doing these things. One person (or a few people) shouldn't ruin it for everyone-


ALSO, I do agree with you on your idea on religion being a personal thing, that a person should embark on theirselves
- couldn't have said it better :D

If it's a dishonest, not genuine, corrupt religious organization that's just there to get money, I don't see why not.

The Catholic Church should be banned for a whole bunch of reasons, and it's army of pedophile priests (which is in the tens of thousands or even more worldwide) that it fully supports and protects and makes sure they can continue molesting children is just one of many reasons.

lol, wow we can do this forever- in that case most religions should be BANNED!
I don't think theres any religion that isn't dishonest, not genuine, corrupt that's out to get money + molest a few little boys (or girls) on the side...!
aggh, you're a hard person to bargain with- do u protest much? you might like it.

and I have to ask you a question which is totally OFF the subject,
I see that you are from canada (it says it by your name) And i am doing a music article on a Quebec band called "We Are Wolves"
Have you heard of them by any chance???

i would totally appreciate it (especially since your like the only person replying to me at the moment!)

But we're not talking about religions, remember? Religious organizations, not religions, Scientology and Roman Catholicism shouldn't be banned, it's ridiculous to ban a religion. I don't think all religious organizations are dishonest and bad, alot are genuine and are not interested in just making money. Both of these Churches have proven to just be dishonest, capitalist, immoral corporations.

And sorry, I've never heard of them....

The rest of Canada is pretty detached from Quebec actually..

detached? how so?

oopsy, I meant organization up there, not religion, (i'm getting uber confused now :wacko:) you have a point there again!
still most organizations have a few skeletons they're hiding, i agree not ALL, but most are in it for the bad things.

and off subject again- If you like bands like Bloc Party or The Clash (or The Horrors) you may like We Are Wolves, i just heard about them really I was leaked the cd
