Blog: Aaron Smith-Levin on Scientology's 3.5 Million Name Mailing List - 2019-06-29
In this video former Sea Org member and Scientology expert Aaron Smith-Levin offers us an excellent analysis of an interview in which Joel Beaton, Address Management Director for the Church of Scientology International, stated that the Church of Scientology's active mailing list contains "about 3.5 million active names."
Mr. Beaton gave this number in an interview with Richard Ramano of the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA). This video was released in June 2019. The Church of Scientology's Bridge Publications has been very active in IPMA for many years.
Aaron analyzes past claims made by the Church of Scientology in which numbers of eight million, nine million, and ten million members were publicly stated by various Scientology officials. For Joel Beaton to now publicly topple these fake numbers by offering a real number is extraordinary.
