Tolerance for other people's religion, beliefs or non beliefs SHOULD be the policy for ALL people.

If you have the right to make your beliefs known, I should have the same right to reject and not have to listen. Explain it to me, if I am intelligent, I can say No thanks! If I don't want it explained I can say, please don't tell me!

However, I can not be intolerant just for the sake of intolerance.

It is insulting to make negative remarks about someone else's belief or lack thereof. Go to the library, check out a book and get some basic knowledge, Perhaps you will then be a little more understanding of other people.

Technically Neither.

It's a giant financial scam primarily designed as a giant financial scam.

I would say a religion is only a menace when it starts to brainwash and really become over-evangelical and lies more than other religions. Scientology, however is really quite peaceful and while it may have been invented, it can't stop people agreeing with it's philosophies, just because a person thought of them, as with any religion.
