Raelian Religion Centre Vandalized

Canadian Press

Thursday, November 07, 2002

MARICOURT, Que. -- An information centre known as UFO land,
which is run by the Raelian religion, was vandalized Thursday,
with damage totalling more than $100,000.

The centre's security gate was knocked down by a pickup truck,
while a white building, community centre and camper trailers
were damaged by the truck.

Police were questioning a man about the incident, which happened
in this community near Sherbrooke in the Eastern Townships.

The Raelian Church of Canada is an officially recognized
religion in Quebec. The Swiss-based, hedonistic movement is
based on the concept that extraterrestrials created humanity as
part of a lab experiment.

Raelians have made headlines in recent years for their
involvement in the human-cloning debate. The group claims to
have several female members ready to carry cloned embryos.

The Raelians recently targeted high schools in Quebec as part of
its ongoing campaign to have Roman Catholics renounce their
faith.
