California is on fire, and Scientology naturally sees a golden recruiting opportunity - 2018-08-05
The Carr fire has been burning in Northern California since July 25. It's a large and destructive fire, and despite the work of thousands of firefighters it's no more than 37 percent contained. Redding, California remains at risk with more than 90,000 residents. For Scientology the fire is an opportunity to put on the yellow Volunteer Minister T-shirts and head north. As we have seen during the Hurricane Harvey recovery and more recently in Manchester, England the VMs are promoted as one of the most important disaster response teams on the planet. And as with previous disasters the VMs are gathering donated supplies at the last minute rather than prepare supplies in advance as major relief agencies do.
