    They are asking the government to censor people?

    They are using the government to censor people through lawsuits.

    That has nothing to do with the First Amendment though.

    You are correct, but in many quotes by Hubbard indicated part of the way to 'power' for the 'religion' was to pretty much not allow any speech against the 'church', to actually make it criminal.

    It's mind boggling that people can take a look at Hubbard, who said the only way for a scifi writer to become rich and famous was to invent a religion, and believe ANY of the scientologist stuff.

    Just take a look at their history of harassment of anyone that speaks out against them, from Paulette Cooper to Bonnie Woods, to infiltration and theft from government agencies to expunge any 'negative' material about them from the history books, to suing Time mag for printing and article about the 'religion'... it's insanity, and obviously a cult, not a religion (though to me most religions really are cults).

    A government that did it's job, would have shut them down a long time ago.

    Meh, they are small time. Let me know when Comedy Central pulls episodes that make light of Scientology like they did the Mohammed episode.

    Besides, as crazy as the Scientologists are, at least they haven't flown any planes into buildings.

    Yet.
    Many Scientologists are rich enough to afford their own planes.
