And Now For Something Completely Different: Scientology Stand Up! - 2013-05-17
You just have to hand it to the folks in the San Fernando Valley. They've tried raising money for an Ideal Org with bowling nights and by selling doorknobs. And now, well, apparently it's time for a little old-fashioned show biz.
For those just joining us, the Church of Scientology is in the grips of crisis, and is losing members in part from the endless rounds of fundraising to purchase new buildings dubbed "Ideal Orgs." Church leader David Miscavige has made these projects a priority even though they're replacing facilities that weren't full to begin with. So local members, like the trio in this video, have to come up with creative new ways to convince wary parishioners to come on down for another round of heavy fundraising pressure.
