  1. Scientology is the world’s most successful con-job. They are just fortunate
    enough that no one dares to challenge them because they use dirt tactics to
    wear down anyone who opposes them outrightly. If ISIS really wants to blow
    someone up, I am more than happy if they would just blow up Scientology’s

  2. “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the
    same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they
    flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn
    renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them.”
    Quran 4:89

    Religion of peace my ass.
