It's been 60 years, and Scientology is a flop. It owns lots of buildings but its membership is small and shrinking daily. Its current leader is a chain smoking high school dropout. Scientologists, themselves, do not demonstrate either physical or mental excellence. Where are the geniuses and super beings promised by Scientology's founder 60 years ago?
Is that what you were told by David Miscavige and his cowed subordinates?
Scientology is buying buildings with money collected from hapless members who've been subjected to high pressure fund raising tactics. This high pressure fund raising has reached scandalous proportions.
Scientology Orgs are mostly empty shells these days. Membership is dwindling.
That's a fact, and to confirm it visit your local Org. How many people do you see?
For PR, Scientology falsely claimed 10 million members in 1990, and 8 million in 1980.
There are fewer than 30,000 members of Scientology these days.
Almost all of the Class 12s, Class 8s, and Class 6s are OUT.
How much abuse is possible by a cult with a decades long history of criminality towards outsiders, and abuse of its own members, when that cult still has money (laundered into overseas bank accounts like organized crime), and a membership of 30,000, including people on pensions, with lines of credit, with homes that can be mortgaged, and life savings that can be gobbled up during high pressure fund raising? A cult with children who are forced to work as adults at low or no pay, subjected to physical abuse, and to psychologically damaging interrogation and communist Chinese-style "rehabilitation"?
How much harm?
Get up off your butt and do something about little dictator David Miscavige and your corrupt "Church."
I'm beginning to be very suspicious of James "Scotman" Mourgos. I think he may represent an anti-Scientology group, and he is here to make Scientologists look as bad as possible. He's doing an excellent job. I think that must be it. Nobody could really be that stupid.
Instead of continually telling people to get back on track, why not get back on track? I would remind you that the opening post claimed that Scientology membership 'is small and shrinking daily'. Refute that claim if you can, with verifiable figures. If you cannot, then shut up. But stop trying to change the subject.
"...large file cabinets...filled with active members"?
Striking though that image is, it does not constitute reliable evidence. Your cult is very secretive about its membership figures, for some reason. Also, it forbids you looking at sites that criticize it, but anyone else interested can look here:
