Mike Bennitt shares with us a creepy e-mail he received after filming Scientology events - 2014-04-08
Mike Bennitt Last night, we showed you surprising tax documents in which the Church of Scientology was forced to estimate the "book value" of some of its many entities. Three of those entities alone (CSI, CST, and FSO) came to nearly $1.5 billion.
Why does Scientology, a tiny organization with maybe 30,000 worldwide members at this point, have so much money? As we told you yesterday, having tax exempt status for more than 20 years, combined with paying workers pennies an hour, allows Scientology to amass stunning wealth.
Which is why it has the ability to run so many retaliation campaigns against its perceived enemies with the use of private investigators and attorneys — a practice it has now fully admitted to in court records submitted in a Texas lawsuit.
