    "The Church of Scientology, known for celebrity and controversy, is now in the middle of another public relations crisis as a former high-ranking official has created a firestorm, first with an email to church members and then testimony in a Texas state court alleging she saw the church's leader punch another executive in the face, and that at his direction she herself was slapped."

    Well, at least they are more civilized than the early U.S. when church leaders just hanged someone for believing differently (not that long ago, folks).

    Are they still locking them in the same room and making them sleep on the floor at the compound?

    Strange behavior that.

    wasn't there a brawl, fisticuffs at one of the councils of Nicea?
