Let's be perfectly clear here...

Scientology is not a religion, it is a dangerous cult.
It's utterly outrageous that we have a law which supposedly prevents individuals from expressing their opinion.

3. A system of intense religious veneration of a particular
person, idea, or object, especially one considered
spurious or irrational by traditional religious bodies;
as, the Moonie cult.
[PJC]


even if you don't like that, there's:

2. A system of religious belief and worship.
[1913 Webster]


so that covers every religion as a cult. As for dangerous - they have a well documented history of legal threats, intimidating behaviour, etc.

Update: It seems that sanity is not lost and the guy isn't going to be prosecuted because, as should have been fairly obvious, his sign wasn't inciting anything \o/

  1. Yep, I've long said that while beliefs of Scientology seem wonky, how are they any different from a white guy from the middle east would could walk on water, perform miracles and come back from the dead? Plus he was a carpenter...oh, and his Mom didn't have sex to create him. Ok, talk amongst yourselves now...
