    Varadkar doesn't know enough about Scientology to comment on it.

    Wow! A guy who spends more time standing in front of a camera than Tom Cruise, says he doesn't know enough about Scientology to comment. Leo who often wears shades and suits and resembles one of the Men in Black as a nipper used to get the 37 from Middle Abbey St out to Castleknock in the 90's. Anyone familiar with the street could never escape a guy or woman with a clipboard who plagued people as they walked along the street inviting them inside for a free personality test to the Church of Dianetics and Science's personality outlet, yes Dublin did have one!

    Given that FG invited the Church into the Dáil to discuss their plans to build their own Vatican complex in Firhouse, this simply doesn't stack up. Just what is it about FG and Scientology? Seems Dr Leo won't even call it a cult?
    It's as much a cult as SF is.

    The thread title is too long. It should simply read

    Varadkar Doesn't know enough.

    Perhaps he should go back to school? It seems Scientology is bombarding RE teachers with resources

    There's a thread on that already, or maybe some posts on another thread as I've read it already recently here. But I don't think he can do anything about that. The teachers need to stay vigilant.

    Would have thought that applies to Brophy's colleagues in Dublin South West. Brophy seems to have a tin opener out, Dr Leo doesn't want to upset the cult, eh the Church I mean, bless their souls.

    If you agree with freedom of religion, it also applies to religions you don't like, and I speak as one who doesn't like any of them.

    Religions are usually based on faith which in turn is based on at least some facts. For instance there was 2 guys, one called Jesus Christ and another Mohmamed who inspired and preached a set of values that pertained to when they lived their lives.

    Tell me what Tom Cruise has to say on the world problems at the moment?
