In terms of avoiding physical and emotional religious intolerance, from whom do I have to worry about attacks? The ones who believe in open-mindedness, or the ones who sell and direct the "Word Of God"?

Again with Scientology: From whom do I need to expect attacks? The devout followers of Scientology, the "Church"; or the followers of Scientology, the belief?

It is the people in each religion who express "one way to the Truth" that scare me the most. Scientology seems to have more than its fair share of these people...
