    The screen shot of the TV program above has a header that says "Scientology on the rise in Australia". This makes no sense to me when the subject matter of the interview includes the FACT that only 2,100 Australians self-identified as Scientologist in the last census.

    Shouldn't they have at least put a question mark at the end of the statement?

    ----------
    Although, perhaps in the prior census only 2,000 people claimed $cientology, making the latest figure an increase? Oh well. Whatever, I guess.

    Agreed - the tenet of the interview is that the purchase of large assets is nonsensical given the dwindling of numbers, and only has PR value.

    I think the headline is there to get people to watch. It's like the headlines that get you to buy a celebrity magazine but the story is completely different to what the headline is suggesting.

    It's a really good angle to get journalists interested - what sort of religion terrorises people who report on it, and why does society tolerate this behaviour?

    Yes, and they are certainly interested!

    Tony reports on the Sydney event ( and this link is also about the Dutch court's ruling.)
