Mexico officially recognizes Scientology as a religion, Miscavige claims at New Year's event - 2017-12-17
Last night, the Church of Scientology held its annual New Year's event at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles so that video of the proceedings can be shown in Scientology churches around the world on December 31.
As usual, the event largely consisted of Scientology leader David Miscavige giving a lengthy address, and during that speech he made one really surprising claim: Miscavige said that Mexico officially recognized the religious status of the Church of Scientology in October.
Our correspondent who attended the event tells us, "The letter of recognition shown on the screen appeared to be from Mexico's Interior Ministry, and it was dated October 30. Miscavige presented this as breaking news."
