http://news.independent.co.uk/media/article2536879.ece The church is distributing 100,000 DVDs to MPs, peers, religious leaders and other influential figures, accusing the BBC of "gross bias" in its reporting, in a bid to protect its reputation against the programme's investigators, who spent six months probing whether Scientology is a legitimate religion. Scientology, founded in Phoenix, Arizona in 1952 by science fiction writer, L Ron Hubbard, asserts that 75 million years ago a galactic warlord called Xenu rounded up 13.5 trillion beings from an overcrowded corner of the universe, dumping them on Earth before killing them with nuclear bombs. Their tortured souls have now attached to human beings and are at the root of most of the planet's problems. Why people would attach themselves to this garbage is beyond me. Most certainly a cult.
