Anonymous, the group of activists that the Westboro Baptist Church accused of hacking its network of sites, a claim that Anonymous denied, is going to protest Scientology this month.
The United States' IRS recognized Scientology as a religion in 1993. Anonymous' goal is to have the group stripped of the tax exempt status.
Anonymous emerged in 2003 as a group of online and offline activists, and became associated with "hacktivism" in 2008.
In 2008, the Church of Scientology called anonymous "terrorists" when the group protested the headquarters in Clearwater.
