The battleground is You Tube and Scientology's weapon is a clip of Panorama reporter John Sweeney losing it.
Scientology works. That is the message from celebs like John Travolta and Tom Cruise - who is, some say, keen on recruiting new Hollywood arrivals David and Victoria Beckham to what he calls his religion.
Others back the Church in various ways: Chief Superintendent Kevin Hurley of the City of London police helped open a new £20 million Scientology centre in London, and the authorities in the City of London have granted it cut-price rates.
But start asking questions and you see a different face of Scientology.
While making our BBC Panorama film "Scientology and Me" I have been shouted at, spied on, had my hotel invaded at midnight, denounced as a "bigot" by star Scientologists and been chased round the streets of Los Angeles by sinister strangers.
Back in Britain strangers have called on my neighbours, my mother-in-law's house and someone spied on my wedding and fled the moment he was challenged.
I have met mothers who say they have suffered Scientology "disconnects" - meaning that their children have cut them completely out of their life so that they can spend more time with an organisation which a judge in 1984 characterised as "corrupt, sinister and dangerous".Added May 11, 2007

This is John Sweeney, losing it with a Scientologist, I can understand it in a way, being a Christian I was one accosted by one of them and politely declined their questionaire and pointed out the paradox of their thinking psychology was Evil but using a blatant psychological test, the guy told me to F$%K off after I suggested he was Demon possesed himself. From the clip it looks like this guy is demon possessed by the Scientologist lol. Anyway it is a ahame that the BBC are not consistent as on the BBC report about WT7 this is exactly the kind of reaction I would have liked to have seen, IT HASNT COLLAPSED IT IS BEHIND YOU WHY THE HECK ARE YOU TELLING ME IT HAS COLLAPSED LOOK BEHIND YOU FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Check out the clips you will see what I meen
BTW L RON HUBBARD is quoted as saying "Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion."[I guess it worked
E questa è la replica (direi autoevidente) di Scientology. Di fatto conferma, più che confutare, quanto afferma John Sweeney, anche se ovviamente dall'opposto 'punto di vista', presentata da proximodiz
Sembra che i capi di Scientology non vogliano far sapere all’opinione pubblica che gli appartenenti alla loro ristretta cerchia pagano una fortuna per sentirsi dire che discendono da una razza di extraterrestri di nome Thetans.
Tra i personaggi che si sono prestati per fare pubblicità a Scientology ci sono il soprintendente Ken Stewart, un comandante di divisione della polizia della City di Londra, oltre a Tom Cruise e John Travolta.
