The Church of Scientology has been offended by a tweet from a low-level Liberal Democrat, in which it was described as 'stupid'.
The tax-exempt Church, which was set up years ago in the 1950s by a self help and science fiction author, and proposes that we are all re-incarnating cosmic forces called Thetans, is angry that it has been associated with suggestions of stupidity - from a Liberal Democrat of all people.
Lib-Dem John Dixon obviously does not make it into London very much, as on a recent visit to the Oxford Street shopping area he tweeted, "I didn't know the Scientologists had a church on Tottenham Court Road. Just hurried past in case the stupid rubs off."
The comment was spotted by a Scientologist, presumably taking a few hours out of cosmic enlightenment to spot instances of such criticisms on the internet, and forwarded on to the Welsh Public Services Ombudsman, who may or may not be reincarnated aliens as well.
Poor Dixon said he was just expressing an opinion in a private capacity, but according to the Beeb, the Ombudsman has ruled there is a case to answer under the councillors' code of conduct.
Come on guys, we are all aliens, can't we all just get along?
Sneak bets that the sorry councillor is wishing that he could just escape all this by getting in a spaceship and flying away. We suspect that the Scientologists may want to do this too, albeit for some rather different reasons.
