Today, Muslim extremists* again attacked a Buddhist temple in Thailand, this time killing one of the soldiers stationed to protect it.
A Buddhist temple.
When was the last time you saw a Buddhist with an uzi? A Buddhist's idea of an aggressive recruitment drive is to get a few orange-bedecked friends together with a tambourine and a drum to meander down a main street, chanting. Sometimes the REALLY zealous ones will opt for a megaphone. One hell of a pressure sales tactic for you. Real soul-snatchers and virgin-tempters, those monks.
Honestly, if Muslim extremists want to attack competing nutty cults to gain market share, why not go for the ones with a big budget, with glitzy ads, with serious ideas of world domination?
Why not march into Scientology's Celebrity Centre for a little you-audit-me-I-behead-you fun?
Because Scientologists have lawyers. Because Scienos - out of touch with our reality though they are - don't take shit from anyone. That's why.
I'd wager that the day after any attacks on Scientologists or Scientology's interests there would no longer *be* a Middle East...just a large, slightly smoky, very new lake and a lawsuit that would make the recent tobacco-company-hunts seem like searches for loose change behind the sofa.
Perhaps Tom Cruise should run for President.
* Not yet entirely confirmed. Could have been REALLY annoyed beggars with AK's. You never know.
