Look at that. It took 6 months for them to lodge a complaint. How could that be? It's because scientologists in general are told NOT to read the Internet.
If people don't realize now that scientology wishes to dictate every facet of life, then people just dont see the bleeding obvious.

Just the fact the scientology was founded by a science fiction writer and is embedded with science fiction-like characters and nonsense says a lot about the person who would choose it for their religion.
Where as most people were abused as children to accept whatever religion they buy into, picking something like scientology on their own indicates all sorts of possible deep seated mental problems.
Becoming a scientologist is like admitting to the world that you are too stupid to do your own thinking!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/twitter...

quoted in the UK Telegraph Scientologist John Alex Wood of East Grinstead filed the complaint.
Mr Wood was the former head of Narconon in the UK,and associated with Scientology CCHR in the UK.
(Citizens Commission on Human Rights)the CCHR is considered a Hate Group by many for its stance for the obliteration of the Psychiatric Profession
among the CCHRs past claims

Scientology's CCHR blames the Holocaust on Psychiatrists
and clames 9/11 was a conspiracy perpetrated by
Psychiatrists
with propaganda like "Psychiatrists: the Men Behind Hitler."
L. Ron Hubbard writings were littered with anti-psychiatry rantings
the Current Leader David Miscavige is on Record Saying that Scientology will Global obliterate Psychiatry during a speech.2006

the CCHRs extremest views are well documented.

Mr John Wood now spends him time on Twitter working for Scientology as a information minister.
trumpeting the the evils of psychiatry

just one visit to John Alex Woods twitter account.
or checking one of his 20 blogs he maintains.

he is prolific in his CCHR propaganda,or any Subject pertaining to Scientology
including promoting Freedom Magazines Attacks on Anderson Cooper.

Mr John Alex Woods promotes Hate Speech

Watch David Miscavige current church leader here speak of
smart bombs..boobietraps ammo dumps,plagues .and destroying Psychs- "a global obliteration"
hate speech at its finest.


watch this video "Scientology is stupid!" and dangerous cult

John Alex Wood promotes this and other Hate Speech
online.

"johnalexwood" seems like one of the OSA trolls like Terryeo, luana,Steve, JeanneB,etc. It's amazing that he's a Python fan, I've seen many Scientologists with every last little bit of their sense of irony sucked out. These OSA trolls think they can police the net? That's insane.

johnalexwood was the dude who posted the Scientology-produced attack on John Sweeney and the Beeb on Youtube, he might be the OSA attack dude for Britian.

From the article:
"The Church alleged that the messages impinged on the right to religious freedom"

This is so typical of the Church of Scientology's preposterous over-reaction to simple things. How did that stupid tweet IN ANY WAY impinge on ANYONE'S right to religious freedom? Eh? Which Scientologist was stopped from anything they wanted to do in Scientology?

The Church of Scientology is accused of being stupid, and their reaction is ... to do something very stupid.

What Scientology is trying to do is "impinge" on John Dixon's freedom of speech!

Hypocrites! "Our 'freedom of religion' gives us the right to suppress ANY negative statements about us. Your freedom of speech doesn't exist."

THAT'S the church we know and hate.

Over-reacted indeed. "Stupid" is the kindest thing said about $cientology in years.

And Spokesclam Tommy Davis says $cientology is a HUGE advocate of free speech.

I wouldn't say bigotted, but stupid, yes, especially in England where there is no freedom in speech unless you belong to a quack pretend religion such as Scientology.
