note the '', in a sense they are providing infrastructure for
scientology, that's a form of support. even though I'd asume they pay
for it.

And what's with the personalised viewpoint? I'm not complaining about
seeing them (as I tried to state I don't see 'm). I'm stating I don't
like what they do. I don't see children getting molested by parents, or
am (directly) affected by it, I still oppose it. You don't have to be
directly involved in order dislike someones actions. Do you?

and google even though considered by a niche to be evil is considered a
trust-worthy source. What would you think about google fascilitating
phishing? Or something else that's more obviously illegal? It would
perhaps portrait google more as a fraud or your regular major company
who's interest is only money (in the short-term). Independent wether
this is true, I'd still don't like organisations which function like
that and do not think they are a healthy element of a society.
