... Seriously what's next? a con man stock broker looking for 1st Amendment protection after ripping off his clients, claiming to be a minister in a church of greed too.
Been to a christian mega-church lately?

I can't watch the videos! The window remains black. Disabled noscript, flashblock, adblock, updated flash and shockwave player. Nothing. Advice?
No I haven't nor would I want to they are just as twisted as Hubbard's Fake Navy,
... but those Mega-Churches have the luxury of ripping off their members in small doses since all of those churches have a membership larger than the entire number of Scientologists on the planet combined and members are pretty much disposable to them. The cult on the other-hand is so tiny it has to go after their member's entire life savings and do everything in their power to keep them from straying off Hubbard's course.

And for Scientology to make noise in such a bizarre way carries risk, he pointed out. "I've talked to at least ten people in Clearwater, most of whom remain under the radar who say what got them to look elsewhere on the Internet was the Freedom magazine issue about the St. Pete Times." And that issue, a similar smear against reporters Joe Childs and Tom Tobin after their landmark series, "The Truth Rundown," wasn't nearly as slick as this current one.
"I know someone [a regular, public Scientologist] OSA asked to read [the St. Pete Times issue] to gauge the local reaction in the community, and that person said 'Oh my God, this is insane,' and then went to Marty's blog, and then left the church and pulled out their family." He predicts a similar exodus after this current issue.
