Moscow City Court has ordered the dissolution of the local branch of the Church of Scientology, ruling that religious freedom must not be restricted by trademarks. Scientologists vowed to appeal the alleged “anti-religious” abuse of their worshipers’ rights.

The Russian Ministry has argued that the since the term Scientology is registered as a US trademark, the Church cannot be considered a religious organization

They only want to be called religion because then they don't pay taxes
>>
Reminder that Scientology is a false religion made up to make money off the back or weak minded peoples, sell them overpriced books and stupid devices. It's a huge scam.

Hubbard probably didn't even believe his own bullshit.

I didn't think Scientologists existed outside of the US

>>51178127
Love it.

No shit.


Even here they don't count as an actual religion
>>
>>51178238
They exist worldwide, but they're not recognized as a religious group in civilized countries.
>>
>>51178229
Thanks for the remind, I forgot this.

What a silly reasoning.

Basically this happened because the russian branch spied on the members and blackmailed them.

Of course he didn't, he decided to turn his story into a religion.

You are wrong he was deadly serious about them, and spent hours auditing himself. Plus take a look at his affirmations that got uncovered by a court case

http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/writings/ars/ars-2000-03-11.html

Here as some juicy bits

>I must be told that my memory is strong and reliable, that I can
remember all I have ever read or studied, that no illness or medicine
has affected mind or memory.

(c) I can have no doubts of my psychic powers. My magical ability is high and clear. I earned my titles and command.

>I have a very bad masturbatory history. I was taught when I was 11and, despite guilt, fear of insanity, etc. etc. I persisted. At a physical examination at a Y when I was about 13, the examiner and the people with him called me out of the line because my testicles hung
low and cautioned me about what would happen if I kept on masturbating. This "discovery" was a bad shock to me.

>I had to be so silent about it that now when a bedspring squeaks I lose all libido. I eventually found out I would not be insane, or injure myself but the scars remain.

>There is no veil between you and the world. You sense touch, color, music, poetry much better than anyone else. You never mention this superiority. But you show them the beauties of the world. You are not old or worn. You are young and experience is fresh and exciting. It will always be. Your brain is clear as a gong. No pressure sits on it or blinds you. Sulfa never affected it. Your speech is perfect. You are thrilled by music. You can engender any mood. You are an excellent judge of painting and sculpture and are thrilled by it in any one of
its thousand moods.

Pretty much the Catholic Church until the invention of the printing press in Europe.

Does that really happen? Also what is going on that he's in a line with people examining his testicles.

Americans are serious about penis inspection day. However I think that might have been due to the time he spent in the military schools and academies rather than in regular schools

Days before he passed away from unrelated causes, he asked his minders to build him a device that would electrocute him to death so that he could rid himself of any remaining body thetans.

In my town we have at least 3. They're quite obsessed but harmless most of the time
>>
>>51185581

Literally the same shit but done by people longer ago for political power and monetary gain rather than just monetary.
>>
In Spain they're legal and regularly go around the streets next to the massive building they own in the centre of Madrid coaxing people to take their sick tests.
>>
>>51186389
theres a huge difference, but good job I took your bait. christians do so much good works every day and you have no idea. all scientologists do is sue and scam people

>>51178127
Well done.

Scientologists also do charity work m8. Pretty much every "religion" on earth does it.

Don't all religions have a trademark registered, just to prevent copyright trolls or something?
Either way, i don't care how flimsy the justification is.
