Scientology just had another religious recognition from a branch of the United Kingdom government.
The Crown Prosecution Service is an entity in the UK that determines whether cases prepared by the police in England and Wales should be brought to trial. They were recently asked if Scientology was protected under hate crime laws as are other religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Their answer was "yes."
Some of my fellow bloggers already wrote about this:
- CPS gives Scientologists same legal protection as mainstream religions
- Crown Prosecution Service gives Scientologists same legal protection as mainstream religions
