Scientology's founder: 'WE are going UP while the world is coming down!' - 2020-03-27
In a time of crisis, Scientologists are naturally turning to the words of the founder, L. Ron Hubbard, looking for some way to make sense of things.
We told you previously that Scientologists are being told to keep in mind a 1957 Hubbard lecture about atomic bomb radiation — in which Hubbard claimed that radiation sickness was largely just a mental issue and not a real physical threat — as an analogy to the current pandemic, which current leader David Miscavige has dismissed as "hysteria" and a "planetary bullbait."
But we're also seeing Scientologists encourage each other by citing another Hubbard proclamation, and one that fits really well with their determination to turn the challenge of the pandemic into an opportunity for Scientology to shine.
