“I HATE religions. I invite YOU to HATE THEM TOO. Find out the harm they have done in the world. Christianity in the past. Islam now. Read all about it and maybe YOU TOO will HATE THEM like I do.”
Rashleigh-Berry has a history of advocating violence against religious groups. In July, 1997, he discussed on an internet newsgroup the use of letter bombs to blow up Churches of Scientology. In 1998 he suggested a new religion called “Kill the Klams” (meaning Scientology parishioners). He stated:“It is perfectly okay to go up to a Scientologist and kill them.”
He also wrote in July 1997: “There are plenty of nutters who know how to make letter bombs. The addresses of the [derogatory name for Scientology churches] are on the internet. I reckon it will only be a matter of days before the letter bombs end up in the [derogatory name for Scientology churches] in-trays. > Watch the news.”
Rashleigh-Berry routinely participates in hate marches against Scientology Churches and their parishioners. He then boasts about his activities over the Internet to other extremists, encouraging them to commit similar acts.
Christianity is a long-time target of Rashleigh-Berry’s hatred:
