Thanks again to reader Rasha, we have a first look at another entertaining Scientology publication today, in this case Source magazine, the publication of the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida.

Source does its best to entice wealthy Scientologists to "Flag," where they can progress up Scientology's "Bridge to Total Freedom," to some of its most expensive upper-level offerings.

That includes, of course, Scientology's crown jewel, its "Flag Building" that was opened in 2013 and is more colloquially known as the "Super Power Building." It takes up a full city block, and Scientology raised something like $200 million to construct it, which took about 20 years. Mike Rinder found documents that spell out what Scientology is charging members to set foot in the place, and he estimated that a typical Super Power experience is going to run a Scientologist about $32,000.
