Church of Scientology fighting fire with fire

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em

If you cant beat them, join them. The Church of Scientology has enabled video on its Web site in an effort to further disseminate its religious message, a month after a widely publicized online campaign sought to discredit and "dismantle" the controversial religion.

The Scientology Video Channel launched this week to "provide an overview of the basic Scientology beliefs and practices of the religion while answering the question 'What is Scientology?'," according to a statement released by the church.

By making the video channel available online, the Church of Scientology hopes to provide enlightening information to those who have questions about the religion.

The church says it has "always considered the Internet a resource for disseminating accurate information about the religion," and its new video channel follows hot on the heels of a February campaign that sought to damage the reputation of Scientology and its followers.

In mid-February, the "Anonymous" group released three YouTube videos that sought to discredit and "dismantle" the church, not long after they had claimed responsibility for a distributed denial of service attack on the Scientology Web site.

The Church of Scientology says its new Video Channel contains 82 Scientology related videos, as well as information on humanitarian programs it sponsors.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
