None Dare Call It Conspiracy

If it's not the Cult of Trump, Jesus or Moses but it's the Cult of W. Fard Muhammad or L. Ron Hubbard it's "troubling". Or "unholy". (Ooooh, scary!) And competition for the religious dollar, so in true market of ideas style, the right wants to see if they can get the gov't. to lean on their competitors a little by skree-ing about another vast imaginary conspiracy.
  Bethany Mandel / National Review:
The Troubling Connections between Scientology and the Nation of Islam  —  Farrakahn receives a commission for each of his followers who undergoes a Scientology ‘auditing.’  —  Scientology is commonly known as the religion of the stars.  Its reach inside Hollywood is deep …
Whatever happened to that right-wing concern/desire for "religious liberty"/theocracy?

Irksome & annoying as bean-pie mongers & personality-test promoters are (Or were; they still do that stuff?) they are merely chump-ass followers of cults that have lucked into enough members to put them on the street to fundraise (a large part of what puts either group in the public awareness) hardly national political organizations w/ any actual clout. Does NRO's Mandel want us to start treating the sappy Farrakhanists & loser Hubbardians as if they were the Mormons at Nauvoo, Illinois & roust their asses somewhere?

Blood-Libel Note: "Scientology is commonly known as the religion of the stars. Its reach inside Hollywood is deep …" Th' fuck?
