Government Petition

If you live in the UK, please support this petition. Thank you Mr. Berry.

Private Eye - current issue 1356. Page 3:

Cult Corner.

The supreme court ruling allowing Alessandro Calcioli and Louise Hodkin to wed in a Scientology chapel will be a double celebration for another member of the East Grinstead-based Hodkin Family.

Not only will solicitor Peter Hodkin be celebrating the family nuptials, but he's also the cult's solicitor who has spent many years battling various local authorities over whether its premises should be exempted from business rates as a religious organisation. Until now Scientology buildings have been treated as business premises, although its weird drugs rehab offshoot is allowed to register as a charity.

Local Government minister Brandon Lewis says the government is taking legal advice on the implications of the court's decision that 146 Queen Victoria Street in central London is a place of worship for the purpose of marriages "and its implications for business rates".
