    Translation of a French article published on Saturday, July 13, 2013 in the Angers edition of the daily newspaper Le Courier de l'Ouest, page 3. The article is not available on the newspaper's website, but it has been reproduced on some websites devoted to monitoring cults (example).
    Snapshot of the article from the print edition:

    The audacity of Scientology claiming they were damaged after littering the streets with this stinky trash that sticks to the sidewalk and has to be scraped up like gum!

    The Way to Happiness booklets makes good glue - just add water and the cheap paper turns to a sticky glue that works great for any house hold needs. You may want to just burn them though - they have blood on the pages!

    Wait, wait . . . don't dismiss this too quickly.

    Let us digest, cogitate on and appreciate the extent of the total idiocy of this cult.

    Ummm, here we have a "church" running around claiming to be a charity and of non-profit operating status . . . wait now, wait for it . . . claiming loss of income/profits due to loss of "customers" in a law suit!!??!!

    I mean get the delicious stupidity of these goons . . . this charitable "church" claiming damages due to being "unable to pursue its normal activity selling" . . . to customers???

    OK Oz, lets use this shit against them when they are up for evaluation under the new law we got passed out there!!!

    The cult is so, so stupid and greedy, they just keep shooting themselves in both feet every time they think with that cultized lump of jelly they call their minds!!

    I'm still sitting here agog at the juxtaposed stupidities in this case.

    On WWP, "DeathHamster" pointed out that Scientology also printed the names of mayors on "The Way to Happiness" booklets in San Francisco and Winnipeg in 2007:

    This kind of idiocy needs to be used in other court cases to show the nature of the beast when they start shouting about 'religious freedom'!
