    From breaking news over at the Bunker:

    This is serious for the CoS which is skating on thin ice over in France. Another criminal conviction (in addition to the one they've already got) could cause the CoS to be shut down over there. France's highest court already has upheld an earlier fraud conviction.

    Sorry, did you say that Scientology was found guilty of fraud in France?

    And their appeal against the fraud charges failed and that the charges were upheld?

    So Scientology is a fraudulent criminal enterprise? Who knew?

    So now the cult is getting pummelled by surrender monkeys. So much for Hubbard's claim that 'This planet is ours'.
