Here is what the Office of Special Affairs nazis want the Australian government to enforce:
"Recommendation 1: The implementation of Criminal and Civil Restrictions on Religious Vilification. Recommendation 2: Restriction on Anonymity on acts of Religious Vilification: 2.1 Websites created with primary purpose of inciting religious vilification shall be removed or their access to the Australian public restricted. 2.2 Creators of websites whose primary purpose is the incitement of religious vilification shall be prevented from concealing their identity. Recommendation 3: Restriction on Religious Misinformation and Misrepresentation known or reasonably known to be untruthful in the Media. Recommendation 4: Include a form of Bill or Charter of Rights into the Australian Constitution, which prevents the Commonwealth from making any law, which 'directly, indirectly or incidentally' prohibits the free exercise of religion to the extent of such prohibition."

Definition: Vilify, defame, speak evil of.
In other words, any critical websites and the creators of those websites in Australia would be subject to civil and criminal penalties, including removal of those websites. Any critical websites outside of Australia would be subject to filtering.

I have a better proposal: Enforce criminal and civil restrictions on racketeering businesses engaging in fraud under the guise of religion. Businesses that destroy families, commit criminal acts, and violate human rights.
The scientology crime syndicate needs to go down.

I like your proposal better, Rythm. I really try hard to try and assume their POV just to understand but mostly I have a real hard time accepting that they believe this themselves. "Religious vilification"? Because I was "innit" I can say there's not a one who believes Hubbardism is a religion and have totally accepted the fact it is a front, but here they present that POV that it is to a court? I'd love to see their religious status removed.
