    Ha-ha, gets my vote, utter bunkum and I always laugh at the way some celebs have swallowed it hook, line and sinker! I'm up in Scotland, but give 'em hell for me, more power to you!

    lol yeah there should be a few people recording it ill post some youtube videos in this thread when i get back

    hmm, if it was a protest against Catholics there would be hell to pay. Both fictions IMO. One has a history of taking money off dumb celebs, the other has problems with pedophile priests. Which is worse? Just saying.

    An ignorant comment!

    Problems with pedophile priests? are you trying to tell me that NONE of the priests in other religions are pedophiles? Its a PR thing more than anything thanks to the media

    Its not just about making money of celebs there is alot more to it then that they harass members pretty on vulnerable people telling them they can help them and then extort money from them and encourage them to sever family ties etc

    If you knew what the people protesting knew about scientology maybe you would be on the streets doing it as well

    not sure exactly what you want to achiev, nor what it will achieve, probably a little like most that will be there

    Isn't Scientology the belief that Predator has farmed humans for millenia so that we can be hosts for xenomorph aliens? And when fully developed, the Predator hunts the xenomorphs for pleasure?

    I'd quicker believe that than any omnipresent being any day.

    throwing the egg wont raise awareness im talking about the protest in general

    throwing the egg is just for personal amusement and the more resources the church of scientology spend the better imo

    its pretty obvious you dont have a clue about scientology or why people would want to protest against them

    lol no thats not how a protest works dear when has there ever been a protest where the awareness raised was about people hanging around on a sunday afternoon, the answer is never

    your right, im not really up on scientology, that doesnt stop me enquiring about it or asking what you expect to achieve, to expect awareness is great and that is something we should work on in all areas, but sadly these protest turn into a free for all, why would anyone need to throw eggs at a building to make a statement, when there is hundreds of people making the statement by doing the protest, oh yes i forgot its for adult amusement, there was me thinking you where there to make a stand in something you believed in rather than being amused for the afternoon

    Why can't it be both they are not mutually exclusive?

    Most people there are there to stand up for something they believe in and raise awareness not throw eggs that was just something I said in this thread and I can do both. Have my cake and eat it type of thing

    Who needs Brass Eye when you have Jeremy Vine and John Sweeny? Those men are comic gold!

    It's not even an answer to a legitimate question.

    I'm a bit confused :?

    I saw the Panorama thing about Scientology, and agree that it's not exactly my cup of tea, but why would people protest about it? Are people not allowed to follow whatever belief they want to? Ok, Tom Cruise might have gone weird and a small child would have trouble believing most of the things he does, but he seems happy enough and surely that's all that matters? I really don't agree with Scientology or how they go about things, but I've also never had people knocking on my door trying to get me to convert to Scientology (like some religions do) so I don't understand why people feel the need to protest about people's beliefs in this manner when technically it doesn't affect them as they've chosen not to follow this 'religion'. If it was a group of Scientologists protesting about Christianity and throwing eggs at churches, there'd be an outcry of people saying how out of order they are.

    And as for the whole egg throwing thing, surely that doesn't raise the kind of awareness you're looking for? Whatever the protest was about, if I saw someone throwing eggs, it would loose any kind of sympathy or support I had for protesters.

    yes they are, this itself is harmless.
    but this cult is different from any religion it actually goes out and ruins peoples lives (aka harmfull!) for their own financial gain its more like a glorified pyramid scheme

    ps: if you did watch the panorma thing you would know this
