I've looked, but I can't find one. I swear they used to have an office downtown across from the Safeway, but it might be gone. Vancouver has the regional head office.

I full on support protests on feb 10th, if there is one downtown. If i find a "church" i'll post it here, and you find a "church" of scientology, post it here.

i'm rooting for anonymous.

Watch the news on Feb 10th. Hopefully people will actually act against this madness.

It was around the corner actually. I don't know if it is connected to Scientology. It was the Christian Science Reading Room.

Christian Science, though not Scientology is still a smarmy religion created by a half-nut.

The church was founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 following a personal healing in 1866, which she claimed resulted from reading the Bible

The extent of their hacking was to send multiple requests to the Scientology website, which is the most basic script available for the 'script kiddies' to use.

Then allied critics of Scientology (ie xenu.tv) suggested that it would be better for Anonymous to leave the website intact, so that anyone wanting to know how wacked out Scientology was, could access the site and learn more about them.

After seeing videos of the protests, I had to wonder how many of the protest members were there because they were truly against and/or had actual problems with Scientology, or because it was just cool to be part of Anonymous.
Don't get so mad, it's just my opinion.

Scientology is a brainwashed cult of troubled people who rely on a small elite group for comfort who in return ask for money and political support. Unfortunately religion is like that.

I sometimes wonder if mankind will look back at religion and chuckle in embarrassment. In all seriousness Scientology really is the cream of the crop as far as wacko's are concerned but not much worse then any other religion.
