Wikipedia Slams Door on Scientology’s Editors
Posted on May 29, 2009
It’s been a rough week for the Church of Scientology. First there was the opening of a trial that could lead to the banning of the organization in France, and on Thursday L. Ron Hubbard’s controversial religion was banned from revising articles in Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia that is edited by Internet users.
Culling information from several sources, a Huffington Post article today said the online encyclopedia Wikipedia “has banned the Church of Scientology and its members from editing its site after discovering that members of the church were editing articles in order to give the church favorable coverage.” This is the fourth time, according to the piece, that Scientology has been embroiled in a Wikipedia dispute.
