This video of BBC reporter John Sweeney losing his temper has been making the rounds. Largely because of the very odd nature of the outburst. Without context.

Turns out that Sweeney was investigating Scientology. And investigating Scientology can be a very risky business.

Prior to Sweeney’s outburst, I did not know much about Scientology. I knew that a few movie stars like John Travolta and Tom Cruise (the Christ of Scientology?) had bought into the program and I knew that it had something to do with Ron L. Hubbard and Dianetics. Oh, and I knew that the Scientologists were not big on pyschiatric practices.

Wikipedia had this to say about Scientology. And this site gives a lot more insight into the very odd beliefs of this group. Xenu? Thetans?

    Wonderful post and excellent links. I am certain John Sweeney and many critics of scientology appreciate your post, as I do.

    Visit Mart Bunker’s , where there is an array of online videos documenting just how odd and quite dangerous this cult is.
