Scientology Officially Recognized by Numerous Courts and Governments
You would find that Scientology has been officially recognized through numerous legal decisions and government decrees in dozens of countries.

I saw your Baffler article of yesterday discussing the future of the bitcoin rage. Inserted in your lengthy and thoughtful article was a slur against my religion, Scientology, which I take objection to. It maligns the religion of many people of goodwill.
The word “cult” is a pejorative term heavy with negative connotation. If you looked beyond the trite misuse of this word you would find that Scientology has been officially recognized through numerous legal decisions and government decrees in dozens of countries. The highest courts of England, Australia, Spain, Italy and the U.S. have found it so. Leading religious scholars have studied the Scientology religion and written extensively about its religiosity. (See scientologyreligion.org/religious-expertises.)
I invite you to look at Scientology with your own eyes and having done so make your more enlightened decision as to what it truly is.
