You know, I'm sick and tired of people trashing my religion on the Net, and especially to professional journalists glibly forwarding the lies.
The Church of Scientology did not "misuse copyright claims to find disaffected members".
a) The Church does not give a fig about disaffected members, being too busy with the millions of satisfied and happy parishioners.
b) The issue is that a few apostates were misrepresenting the Church by posting out-of-context copyrighted materials in an effort to slander and vilify our religion. As a parishioner, these hate sites affect me personally as they cause me, my family and my kids social hardship. I applaud the Church's efforts in clearing its name.
