    Actually I find it can be really tender and sweet.

    Though it's best in an Indian style curry.

    I'm curious whether the legal & legislative system in Oz is similar to the U.S.? Can the cult now sue the Oz government for religious discrimination or some other frivolous excuse claiming they are being unconstitutionally and illegally targeted by the Oz politicians?

    Can political decisions be declared null & void by their court judiciary?

    Don't know Oz law, but I suspect they would have a tough time trying to make a 'religious discrimination' claim about a law that applied to all non-profits, not just religions, looking to get a tax exemption.

    Just because "Scientology" is a religion (as recognised under Australian law), that doesn't mean that the CoS is? Or am I completely off the mark?

    They could make the case that Scientology is the religion, while the CoS is a business run to make profit and engages in cult-like activity - hence they could use that to drag Scientology down with it and remove that religious status. Which would lead to epic win and much celebration.

    Well, since the "religion" alone can't defend itself then the "church" of the religion has to do it. It depends on what objectionable aspects of the "religion" the "church" puts into pratice. You can't really convict a belief system no matter how lidicrously criminal it sounds but you can restrict its "church" on common law grounds. Don't forget that it is not just the official "church" that practices scientology. You have the Freezone/Independents doing their own less abusive version of it.
