Know why Anonymous wear masks.
Scientology protesters cover their faces in order to protect their identities, to preserve anonymity and to ensure safety. Consistent with its “Fair Game” policy, which requires that critics and enemies of the organization be “utterly destroyed,” Scientology has a well-earned reputation for harassing critics and openly critical ex-scientologists at their homes and workplaces. Taking measures to protect your privacy and anonymity when confronted by an aggressively litigious cult – a cult whose mantra is “Never Defend, Always Attack!” – is a matter of common sense.
