All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

The conflict between the "church" and the Internet has made Usenet history since it was escalated on Jan 1st 1995 by a raid on a critic (the first of many). While it's quite trendy to make fun of the beliefs of scientologists, the conflict has been fueled by the behaviour of the huge origanisation known as the "church".
The behaviour of the "church" is governed by their religious belief that civil courts are to be used as instruments for harassement of critics . While, on one hand, the "church" uses the civil law courts in new and imaginative ways , they never cease to complain about "religious persecution" when a government acts against them.
