Submission + - UK teen cited for calling Scientology "cult->

An anonymous reader writes: A 15-year-old is facing prosecution after displaying a sign at an anti-Scientology demonstration in London earlier this month that used the word "cult" to describe the organization. According to the City of London police at the scene, the teen was violating the Public Order Act, which "prohibits signs which have representations or words which are threatening, abusive or insulting." There's a video of the teen receiving the summons from the City of London police at the demonstration (starting at one minute in) and now he's asking for advice on how to handle the court case.
