Blog: The Church of Scientology International Has No Members - 2014-05-02
When a person says they are a member of the Church of Scientology, what are they really saying?
The Church of Scientology International, like all churches of Scientology, only exists because it has a license from RTC. Hence, CSI, and all other churches, are simply licensees of RTC.
The Church of Scientology International is a corporation that owns property and has a 2012 book value of $890,000,000. But beyond those bare facts, the reality is that no one actually belongs to "the Church of Scientology" for the term itself is somewhat of a vacuous legal fiction.
