Blog: Vulture Culture Casualty: The Entire Mission Network - 2011-11-17
Miscavige's maniacal greed meltdown has reached out to and apparently destroyed the Mission network (the smaller "churches" that once provided introductory Scientology services to many people in just about every city of 1/2 million people or more). A very recent defector who was in a position to witness it all has risked his future relations with family and prospects for business to provide us with the facts. Meet my man Gabriel and be sure to let him know how you appreciate his courage.
I have served as a staff member in the mission network for a number of years. I have very current data in the SMI Network that corroborates what Mr. Rathbun, Mr. Rinder and so many others are reporting.
Currently the mission network is on the verge of collapse. In terms of management it has been completely unmocked. I know of three missions that have closed in the past year or so: Lake Charles, Lafayette, and Gulfport. Lafayette has been open for a decade and used to be pretty strong - until one of its Mission Holders (an OT) died of cancer. The other MH got a "handling" at Flag and came back saying that her SP was the MH Lake Charles. Need I say more?
