Blog: It's Super Bowl Sunday - What A Perfect Fundraising Opportunity!! - 2016-02-07
"Fixed donations," "mandatory donations," "required donations" are scientology oxymorons. Once the exclusive provence of church services, the "bright idea" spread to IAS donations (you must be a Patron to be on OT VII) and ideal orgs (you must qualify for OT VIII by contributing to your ideal org) and now have reached out into the "social betterment" programs and even the scientology public.
And everyone is so conditioned to this that they don't even notice any more.
And BTW, an "open bar" at a scientology event? I guess there are a LOT of people that are NOT "on lines" despite what the Flag OT Committee says about getting every local scientologist onto service...
