Melbourne, July 10 (ANI): The Education and Childrens Services Minister in South Australia has attacked the controversial Church of Scientology, branding its faithful as bastard.

Jane Lomax-Smith made the comment earlier this year while talking to a group of protesters outside the churchs offices in Adelaide.

Unfortunately for her, the comments were caught on tape, with the video finding its way to YouTube, reports The Australian.

“They should be taxed the bastards,” shes seen as telling the protesters from an internet collective called Anonymous.

They shouldnt be tax-free, were subsidising them.

Ms Lomax-Smith has since described her comments as personal views made in a private conversation.

Some of the churchs most well-known believers include Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Jenna Elfman.

Cruise is also said to have introduced Australias richest man James Packer to the religion. (ANI)
