The Church of Scientology has a history of filing SLAPP suits they know are frivolous in order to bankrupt their critics into silence.

So, Scientology is a cult founded to make money. We know this because L. Ron Hubbard bragged about it. But does it matter? If you were to project “Christianity Sucks!” or “Islam Sucks!” on a church or mosque it would probably be considered a hate crime. Many people have strong opinions, based on hate, towards a lot of religions. Does it matter if the religion is “real” or not?

They didn’t mention the lawyer that sent it. That’s usually a good sign of how serious they are. Monique Yingling, super serious! Gary Soter, heh.

How can you tell? :thinking:

It’s a good point though.

I dunno, would it be a hate crime to project “Donald Sucks” on a Trump Tower? Because a lot of his supporters treat him like a religious icon.

My understanding is that in the 'States, official religions don’t pay tax.

Surely Trump… Oh. Never mind.

What was that screamy sound in the background while the one guy was reading the letter? It sounded like an A-10 taxiing out for takeoff. Or warbird of your choice.

By which you mean, does it matter if the religion is “real” or not in the minds of the pranksters? What if some Christians projected “SUCKS” onto the facade of a Flying Spaghetti Monster hall?

Another question would be: Does it matter if the hate is “real” or not? These guys don’t “hate” Scientology, nor are they in a position to impose their hate and inspire fear, in any way like neo-Nazis/KKK do, now and historically, towards Jews or African-Americans.

The Scientologists, as they are composed of lawyers, do bring up an interesting point, though. And I think the only answer is: litigators sort it out in the Supreme Court 5 years from now.

I think that would be viewed as a moral victory by the Pastafarians.
