Oh gross: Scientology Sea Org now saluting donors who give for 'Ideal Orgs' - 2018-08-19
Rod Keller has a great new report on just how wacky and desperate Scientology fundraising is becoming...
We've been following the progress of the Columbus, Ohio org to renovate their future Ideal Org home, and last week they held another fundraiser. We have an unusual level of detail on how everything happened.
This money is all for renovations — the building was purchased in 2010 and has sat empty since then. The event theme was "Boots in the Sky," referring to the 1952 essay by L. Ron Hubbard on individual responsibility. Despite the surreal imagery of floating footwear, it is one of the most inspiring writings in Scientology and is frequently used in fundraising and to recruit volunteers. It comes with a hint of guilt: if you want to improve yourself with Scientology you should be ashamed not to take responsibility for the success and expansion of the group.
