Scientologists behaving badly: What's prison time to a trillion-year-old thetan? - 2019-08-07
It's a wonderful depiction of Scientology's ecclesiastical apotheosis, with the church's pope, David Miscavige, in clerical faux-naval garb, congratulating OT Committee member Jay Spina for helping to forward the organization's esoteric, upper-level pseudoscience.
Well, those were happier times. The Church of Scientology today isn't saying anything about Spina or his brother Jeffrey, both longtime, high-level Scientologists and chiropractors from Middletown, New York, who were indicted for perpetrating an $80 million Medicare scam.
Jay Spina has already pleaded guilty, and is facing years in prison. So it's eye-opening to see him getting a trophy from Miscavige who somehow, after ripping apart families and extorting millions from his followers for decades, has not been indicted himself.
