Blog: David Miscavige: Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous - 2009-09-21
There was an interesting post today about how David Miscavige spends parishioner money. And I've read and heard other accounts of how he lives.
Let's put this in context. Here we have most Scientologists scraping and scrimping to get every possible bit of money to the Church. Some people have taken out second or third mortgages. Some have raided their retirement savings, or their inheritances. They've gone without that vacation or that new car to contribute every penny they can.
Then, too, we have thousands of Sea Org Members, working for less than $50 a week, with no retirement savings, no possessions, living in communal dormitories and eating cafeteria food.
