      === Scientology

      I have added a link to the Scientology articles page. It leads to an excellent
      article by Stephen Kent: "The French and Germany Versus American Debate Over
      'New Religions', Scientology, And Human Rights."
      http://www.apologeticsindex.org/s04a.html

      Note: Stephen Kent has demonstrated an excellent and thorough knowledge of
      Scientology's teachings, practices, goals and methods. He is an outspoken
      critic of Scientology, and thus is a frequent target of the cult's "dead
      agenting" practices.

      In addition, Stephen Kent exposes the work of cult defenders, which explains why
      he also has become a target of abuse by such folks as CESNUR's Massimo
      Introvigne.

      Unlike many who try to address European concerns regarding cults and human
      rights, Kent has a thorough knowledge and understanding of these issues. I
      highly recommend this article.
