I wonder whether there is anyone here who can honestly defend the notion that Mark Bunker should be charged with a "hate crime." Curiously, there has been a deafening silence on this issue since the information came to light. Where is publicrelations? Why isn't there public gloating? Is it because no one who is pro-Scientology seriously believes this charge has any merit? Better yet, it is because they don't *want* Mark to be charged with a hate crime, because such a trial would, in a public forum, reveal to the world the abuses of Scientology's leadership. Maybe the spectacle of Mark Bunker and other witnesses for the defense telling their side of the story on Court TV isn't all that appealing.
Still, you'd think some of the Scientologists who post to this newsgroup might take a stab at making the case for a hate crime charge.
