I wouldn't blame them, they're lunatics. In the '70s They broke into more than 100 government agencies and private organizations to scrub unfavorable history of L. Ron Hubbard and then basically exommunicated those who were caught. Last time the IRS tried to revoke their tax exempt status they basically just sued everyone into submission.

times are far different now. the government is many orders of magnitude more powerful than it was in the 70s

I believe the tax exemption revocation was in the 90s

Scientology's bullshit is much more widely recognized than it was in the 90s.
