They weren't talking about the song, they were talking about the book about Charles Manson--titled, "Helter Skelter"--who was supposedly inspired to kill people because of the Beatles' *song*, "Helter Skelter". The author had apparently added the bit about Charles Manson being a Scientologist after being confronted by "church" attorneys/authorities.
