Those damn Hollywood Espees! Fellow scio's arise!! Kick the spawn of Xenu back to Arsclicus where they came from!!! Mimsey

Based loosely on the life of church founder L. Ron Hubbard, the film has elicited a wave of protests from his adherents, a source confirms to THR.

As The Weinstein Co. enters the final stretch of its prerelease marketing efforts for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, the Church of Scientology -- the origins of which are explored in the film -- has been mounting a campaign of its own.

Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the church has been calling, e-mailing and sending letters to Harvey Weinstein's studio to voice objections to the film's depiction of a cult leader, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman and said to be a loose fictionalization of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Joaquin Phoenix also stars in the film as a drifter who falls under the Hoffman character's spell.

Hell yeah!

God, the OSAmites are so stoopid. :biggrin:

It shows again how in a scilon world there is no freedom of expression.

They are making sure that the public knows this film is about hubbard and scilonism.

Dumber than a box of rocks.

Related and tragic news from today; another 'religion' protests a film.

From: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e8d91afe-fc53-11e1-aef9-00144feabdc0.html

"The Libyan official said the US ambassador had been on his way to a safer venue after protesters attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi and opened fire, killing a staff member, in protest at a US film that they deemed blasphemous to the Prophet Mohammad."

Where is the CofS going with its recently ballyhooed linkup with the Nation of Islam?

NOI is very different from these guys in Libya. They'd see NOI as American spies :biggrin:

Not a laughing matter, I know.
