Very good article of Mike and the work done in producing evidences as you said.
All this pressure , regarding the scam used by LRH and top exec to have Scientology granted religious status ( tax) and To be regarded as a religion (public opinion) , explains, IMO, what we are seeing these days that being pushed as COS agenda:
Scientology not a cult = minority religion
Its sci-fi opera stuff ( taken from LRH sci fi books) and abusive policies = religious faith
HCOPL = Sacred Scriptures ?????
Hey...are we supposed to have lost so much brain that we will swallow it???? And the public have long got it's a money scam..but only lately they realized the extent of the abuses to either get money or slave work from followers = parishioners ...
