Blog: (VIDEO) Scientology's Desperate Media Tactics - 2016-04-28
From all indications, it appears that the Church of Scientology will soon be opening their Scientology Media Production center in Los Angeles. I earlier stated they would delay the opening as long as possible in order to use the opportunity for as much fundraising as possible, similar to the way the Super Power building in Clearwater Florida was not opened for over a decade and generated over a hundred million dollars as a result. Recent circumstances have forced them to speed up their time table.
This new media center is a completely unnecessary addition to Scientology's already extensive real estate holdings and is being promoted as "the next emphatic advance in our global dissemination crusade and the future of Scientology dissemination planet wide: A Scientology television station. A Scientology radio station. Not to mention production facilities for every type of media — from print publications to internet media. All located in one facility and all to be inaugurated as: Scientology Media Productions."
I said unnecessary for a few reasons, the first and most obvious being that Scientology already has massive facilities to do every one of these functions and has for decades. Despite this, Scientology appears to be the world's fastest shrinking religion, with empty service facilities in every Scientology organization around the world. One need only drive by or vist any of them to see what I'm talking about. Its own members know this is true because they have to suffer the cognitive dissonance of being told that Scientology is expanding at greater rates than ever in its history, while they go to their local churches and see empty classrooms and maybe a couple of people getting Scientology counselling on a regular basis. Over the last few years especially, the word has gotten out about how toxic Scientology is and how it specializes in making its own enemies and operates only to make money, not actually help people.
