Playing the man and not the ball?

Having just watched the Panorama programme on Scientology, I am speechless… Without passing judgement on anyone’s belief, that ‘fair game’ counter strategy seems both extraordinary and utterly relentless.

The ‘debate’ begins and here (and the satire and here). Sinister, or biter bit?
