Our thanks again to Rasha, who rushed to us the newest Source magazine out of Scientology's spiritual mecca, the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida. Most of it is the usual drivel, encouraging members to drop large sums on a visit so they can achieve Super Power or the L. Rundowns. But among the usual blather, one item really caught our attention.
It was a piece specifically about the shrine they've erected to the Commodore himself, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, in the Flag Building (i.e. "Super Power"), which was opened in 2013 to much fanfare.
