Masked Jr. Hipsters Invade 39th Street

I was headed down through Westport Saturday and ran across some ruckus and naturally decided to stop and take some pictures. A bunch o' folks were out protesting Scientology, which, in case you dont know it, is the 'religion' that was created by a science fiction writer who was rumored to say once: "The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion."

Then he did what 99% of the world doesn't do when they come across an idea, he actually did it. By drugging John Travolta when he was still high on Pulp Fiction fumes, he got him to sign up to do Battlefield Earth, which we can only assume was Tom Cruises favorite movie ever, and the rest is history. Now, the business is hoes in every area code and their stacks of loot roll thick, mainly because they claim to be a religion and therefore get massive tax breaks.

Anyway, here are some pictures. However, my dad couldn't help ask me, if they really want to protest, wouldn't it say more if they we rent doing it anomalously?

The Phelp's family uses the same "religion" excuse to avoid their taxes as well. The family house just happens to be their church as well. It's funny what you can do with faith...
