Online war launched against Scientology

2008-02-08 00:00

A day of free speech protests has been planned outside Scientology centres around the world tomorrow, with campaigners mobilising on Facebook and YouTube.

The church has been powerless to stop online sabotage. Guerrilla action has included temporary disabling of its international website and "Google bombing", a manipulation of the search engine resulting in the website being the first result returned by Google when users type "dangerous cult". Scientology’s UK website has been unavailable and in the U.S. the FBI were investigating what they said was the hoax dispatch of white powder in envelopes to 19 churches in the Los Angeles area.
