    If prejudice is borne of ignorance, then maybe I'm guilty; but unless everything I've read about scientology is completely off base, I stand by my assessment. All belief systems are not created equal.

    Since when do you give any value to government recognition of anything?

    As you may know, I don't believe in any religion, but I recognize that some faiths, no matter how flawed or irrational, help many people deal with difficult situations. As John Lennon said, "Whatever gets you through the night." I also believe that all told, religion does more harm than good. As Mr. Lennon also said, "Imagine . . . no religion."

    I don't care what other people say. My categorization of scientology has NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE. You can call them racists, but don't call me one.
