'Tears of joy': Scientology boasts that leader David Miscavige attended Clearwater event - 2020-12-22
And besides the usual drivel about promoting the high-level and expensive processes at Flag, this issue contained a surprise: Evidence that leader David Miscavige made a recent appearance at a Flag graduation event at a time when some Scientology orgs are boarded up, international events have been put on hold, and Miscavige himself has been pursued without luck by process servers.
There's no date mentioned in the brief article, and our scans are somewhat imperfect. But the impact of the piece is plain enough. At a time when Scientologists may be having doubts about how the organization is weathering the pandemic, Miscavige's appearance at the auditorium of the Fort Harrison Hotel, Scientology's holiest location, is intended to bolster morale.
