  1. Scientology’s bona fides have been officially recognized by a number of governmental agencies and public authorities in the United Kingdom. These include: The Ministry of Defence, which has officially recognized the Scientology religion in the Royal Navy (1996). HM Customs and Excise, which classifies the Church as a religious organization (2001). Inland Revenue, which ruled that Church staff serve out of a religious commitment rather than financial award (2001). The City of Westminster Finance Department, which holds that the Church of Scientology qualifies as a charity “with purposes beneficial to the community.” The City of London Head of Revenues has recognized the Church as “an organization established for charitable purposes only” and entitled to property tax exemption. The General Register Office in Scotland has authorized a Scientology minister to solemnize marriages as a minister of religion. http://wp.me/p2Cfx3-1hR
