Scientology's desperate response to pandemic is to let us see just how creepy it really is - 2020-04-11
It's been almost a month since Scientology canceled its L. Ron Hubbard Birthday Event in Clearwater, Florida on March 13 and church leader David Miscavige put out his secret "bulletin" responding to the coronavirus crisis.
In that bulletin, Miscavige furiously took swipes at the "hysteria" of the pandemic and proclaimed that Scientology's number one priority would be to "PROTECT THE ORG." And initially, Scientology tried to keep the orgs (churches) open, inviting members to come down and take courses even as stay-home orders were being put in place around the country.
Eventually, reality set in and most orgs closed as Scientologists, like the rest of us, stayed home to help "flatten the curve."
