L. Ron Hubbard's magic chalk, and other Scientology miracles at the '07 Birthday Event - 2016-01-30
Our video source has come through again, and we have something for you today that hasn't previously been online. It's the 2007 LRH Birthday Event, held in Clearwater, Florida, the holiest day on the Scientology calendar (March 13), when church leader David Miscavige throws a celebration of L. Ron Hubbard on the anniversary of his 1911 birth.
Of all the annual Scientology blowouts, we especially enjoy the Birthday Event because it means that Miscavige will trot out the Silver Mullet, Scientology's official Hubbard biographer and writer of Miscavige's speeches, the man with creative ideas about English sentence structure and who always tells the biggest whoppers about Hubbard's history. We're talking, of course, of Dan Sherman.
Dan is in fine form at this event, and as we watched him recount the early days of Dianetics and Scientology, 1948-1954, we realized we were watching Scientology's own course in miracles. Scientologists will deny that they consider founder L. Ron Hubbard a god, or that they worship him. But it's hard to conclude otherwise after watching this vid.
