Scientology Convicted in France
After a lengthy trial, Scientology has been convicted of fraud in France. Unfortunately, they can’t be banned because of a last minute change in the law quietly put into effect right before the beginning of the trial. At the very least, there should be some sort of Surgeon General’s warning slapped on all the buildings.
Tony Ortega has a nice entry on the case over at The Village Voice. It’s great that France has made this ruling but little changes. They still are allowed to commit further acts of fraud. The ruling, however, helps to further warn newbies.
