The "Anonymous" human rights group protested peacefully outside the "L. Ron Hubbard Museum" in Hollywood this past weekend. On Sunday afternoon, some Scottish tourists, a father and his two sons, stopped for a moment to chat with one Anonymous.
As they learned a little about Scientology's human rights abuses and financial crimes, they were surrounded all the while by paranoid Scientology security personnel filming them with both still and video cameras. Scientology makes a habit of endlessly filming its critics, so that it will be better able to track them down in pursuance or the cult's "Fair Game" policy. This policy explicitly states that such "suppressive persons" as critics "may be tricked, sued, lied to or destroyed." Although Scientology insists that this policy is no longer in effect, the many cases of stalking and harassment of critics, continuing to this day, tell a different story.
At one point the eldest son, a young man of about 20, realized that one of the Scientology goons was video-taping straight into the face of his younger brother, a 14-year old boy. The young man immediately asked the Scientologist to delete the footage, on the grounds that his brother is just a child, and should not become a part of some Scientology revenge fantasy. The Scientologist refused to do so, and took the camera inside the building.
The young man and his father tried to reason with a second Scientology goon. The young man was highly articulate.
"There are laws on the books to protect children. And there's a reason why there are those laws to protect children. And it's not for the benefit of the parents or the adult. It's for the CHILD."
This Scientologist, however, insisted that filming a child was no big deal. In keeping with the Scientology credo of "Always attack, never defend," he thought it a good rhetorical strategy to suggest that perhaps the visiting Scots were pedophiles.
"You people are making this thing out of control! It's a minor? It's a minor? What have YOU done with minors?"
The father of the family, a psychiatrist, said "I work with children."
The Scientology goon was then completely stymied and could only sputter, "Well, then, get a life!"
"I have a life, I'm on holiday," returned the father.
After some time, a Scientologist returned outside with the camera. Sensing that the police might soon be summoned, he said that he would delete the footage of the child. It was not clear whether he might already have copied the footage during his 10 minutes indoors, but for what it was worth, he deleted some scenes with the family observing.

Scientology is much, much worse than you think it is.
