+ - Scientology critic arrested

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Last Friday, Arizona police arrested Keith Henson, an engineer, writer and long time critic of the Church of Scientology. Back in 2001, after picketing outside Scientology's main headquarters in Hemet, California, he was convicted of "interfering with a religion", a misdemeanor under California law. Due to a number of death threats to him and his family, he escaped to Canada where he unsuccessfully tried to get political asylum. Until last Friday, it wasn't known that he was living in Prescott, Arizona, where he was arrested, after Scientology tipsters allegedly set the authorities off to his location. In response, a "Free Keith Henson" blog and a legal defense fund have been created. Depending on the result of his hearing today, he may be extradited to California."

+ - Inconvenient Truth Too Inconvenient For Schools

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Federal Way School Board in Washington State recently restricted the showing of An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore's documentary about global warming and its potential effects on Earth. An email was sent to the school board that said "The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn't in the DVD" prompting one of the board members to propose a moratorium on the showing of the film. The film is being made available to educators via participate.net, which also provides films such as Fast Food Nation, Murderball (not what it sounds like), and Stand Up. Up to 50,000 copies of An Inconvenient Truth are made available to teachers."
