Kirstie Alley's daughter: 'Everyone' is ditching Los Angeles for Clearwater - 2021-04-15
The church itself has revealed that Miscavige now makes his home in Clearwater, Florida, where Scientology has its "spiritual mecca," the Flag Land Base. Dave is reportedly living in another major monument to himself that he had built over a 20-year period, the Flag Building on Fort Harrison Avenue.
Los Angeles, meanwhile, is looking more and more like a Scientology ghost town.
It's true that Scientology has been in decline all over the world for decades, and that its numbers have dropped dramatically in places like Australia and the UK, as census figures show. But Southern California has been such a storied center of Scientology power going back to L. Ron Hubbard's first demonstrations of Dianetics in 1950, so it's been surprising to see it increasingly becoming an afterthought to the church while Clearwater gains importance.
