I have recently seen advertisements on this board for Dianetics. It should be pointed out that Dianetics is the primary book for Scientology, a cult organization in the US which intimidates families, people who speak out against them and even politicians.

Nor is this the determination of a single group: Scientology remains on law enforcement radar worldwide for fraud, intimidation, extortion and a host of other crimes.

It is unfitting that ChinaDaily support this organization with advertisements.

I agree with this, CD should take action to prevent them targetting innocents.

I think the ad placements are via an online advertising company, aren't they ?
I wouldn't be blaming CD necessarily but I do agree that Scientology adverts are to be avoided.
Maybe CD and other large media organisations should specify that certain products are not to be advertised in their web-ad spaces.

A job for an advertising standards authority or for the thought police?

What would happen in America to such an advert?

Maybe if China Daily was not so hard up for cash - then this disruption to harmony would be closed?

HUMAN RIGHTS abuse by Interesting?

CD, the Hollywood chatteria and chardonnay monks were out in force to accuse us of human rights abuse when we object to them raising hell and causing mayhem in Tibet.

Now they want us to stop advertising for the Church of Scientology, knowing full well that the other half of Hollywood seek moral salvation there. Members? Tom Cruise, John Travolta... and some rather wealthy Australians I might add.

So it is better to accept ads from the Church of Scientology then to get hammered for human rights abuse by the other half of Hollywood and umm... some very rich white Australians. Very.

I can just see the poisoned quills been dipped into acid right now to accuse us Chinese of whatever it is they think we have done to them.

We have our own cults to worry about.
