Submission + - Lawsuit alleges Scientology just 'taking people's money' (nbcnews.com)

PhxBlue writes: NBC News' Erin McClam writes that a couple who left the Church of Scientology in 2010 is suing the church for misusing more than $400,000 that they donated in the 28 years they were members:

The lawsuit alleges that the church has used contributions to “stifle inquiries into the Church’s activities and finances, to intimidate members and ex-members” and “to finance the lavish lifestyle of [David] Miscavige.”

It's probably worth noting here that the church's motives have probably never changed. It has always been about "taking people's money," but now the money goes to Miscavage instead of to founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Neither Microsoft nor Digg revealed the financial details. Google declined to comment for the report.
