A conversation, presented for your edification.

Person 1. "Hey, my good friend who I trust very much, otherwise I wouldn't tell you this, I'm going to be taking part in a protest against child pornography. What do you think?"

Person 2. "Well... what about other alternative sexualities like homosexuals and bisexuals? They're kind of the same thing. Why don't you protest them?"

Person 1. "What? Surely you recognize a fundamental difference between an alternative sexuality and child pornography?! I mean do you not know much about child pornography? The way they abuse children?"

Person 2. "Oh sure, I know they abuse children. But what about those guys in the news the other day? They were gay, and they abused children too. Gays and other alternative sexualities are child abusers just as much as pornographers are. And anyhow, some gay people have been realy mean and hateful towards people like me, so I don't really like gay people. Maybe I'm just biased, but I don't think there's that much difference between gays and pornographers."

Person 1. "I don't even know what to say in response to that."

Now, to finish off the picture of this conversation, I shall tell you that person one is homosexual, and person two is perfectly well aware of that fact.

How would you feel, if you were person one?

Think about it.

Just FYI

If there's anybody who's actually ignorant about this subject, I found The Road to Xenu to be an excellent taste of what Scientology is actually about, though it's honestly one of the mildest of the ex-scientologist stories I've heard. Also www.xenu.net has a ton of good information. And, of course, to be fair to the other side, you'll probably want to take a glance at www.scientology.com Not that I particularly want to be fair to that organization, but it's always good to look at both sides of an issue before making up your mind. Finding a neutral view on the subject is pretty well impossible, the wikipedia article on them is the only one I know of out there, and it tends to be a bit of a battleground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology
