Is Scientology Bullying YouTube?

Is Scientology bad? Is Scientology true? Is Tom Cruise Scientology?

Some of you have noticed that a recent video, featuring actor and former Scientologist Jason Beghe, is no longer available. This Religion News Blog article might shed some light on the situation.

No justification was given to me, I got no notice from them, and there appears to be no recourse. And why did this happen? Because the Jason Beghe interview was about to be posted – and Scientology did not want anyone to see that. My tease for the Jason Beghe interview went up on Sunday, and by this afternoon we had almost six hundred thousand views, and it had been profiled in newscasts around the world. There is a lot of tension being drawn to this video, and Scientology wanted to stop it.

Mark Bunker is a well-known journalist and Scientology opponent. He’s complaining that his YouTube account has been suspended, and thinks that Scientology leaders have pressured Google (YouTube’s owners) into keeping him from spilling the beans about their organization.

I don’t find it that odd that this sort of thing is happening. The pressure on Scientology is intensifying, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a whole bunch more defections before 2008 is over.
