How to finance a Scientology church in a city without any Scientologists - 2018-12-02
Rod Keller gives us a glimpse of Scientology fundraising happening on the other side of the planet…
Adelaide is Australia's fifth largest city, and is known as the "city of churches." This week Scientology raised the money needed to purchase a new building that will replace its old storefront with an Ideal Org. It marks the end of one phase and the start of a new round of fundraising to renovate the building.
The wealthy Clearwater and Los Angeles Scientologists have been absent so far, but the money doesn't come from the locals in Adelaide. They are primarily small business owners in Melbourne and Sydney.
