MADNESS: U.K. BOY FACES PROSECUTION FOR SIGN STATING SCIENTOLOGY IS A CULT
"For those whom God to ruin has design'd, he fits for fate and first destroys their mind." Dryden

A teenage boy is facing criminal prosecution for holding a sign identifying the Church of Scientology as a "cult". The boy is part of a group, known as "Anonymous" which regularly protests against Scientology outside the church's London headquarters.
Excerpts from Telegraph: "The boy, who is described only as a minor, was taking part in a demonstration outside the church's central London headquarters on May 10 when City of London Police officers ordered him to remove the placard.
It read: "Scientology is not a religion, it is a dangerous cult."
When he refused, he was issued with a form of summons for an alleged breach of public order. Police plan to pass a file to the Crown Prosecution Service to decide whether charges can be brought."
"After a complaint from the church, several demonstrators were told to remove signs but the youth was the only one who refused.
"A spokesman for the force said the youth had been "reported" under section five of the Public Order Act, which contains measures against displaying signs considered to be "threatening, abusive or insulting".
"Writing anonymously on an internet forum, the boy said: "Within five minutes of arriving … I was told by a member of the police that I was not allowed to use 'that word'."
"He said he was given 15 minutes to remove the sign, which was eventually confiscated by officers.
"Chief Supt Rob Bastable said: "City of London Police upholds the right to demonstrate lawfully, but we have to balance that with the right of all sections of community not to be alarmed, harassed or distressed as a result of other people's behaviour."
The modern world is clearly at war with truth itself.
