Scientology has a new recruitment video to get you to sign up for a billion years! - 2014-06-26
We have another video for you that wasn't supposed to be seen outside the Church of Scientology. This one is a recruitment pitch for young Scientologists to join the Sea Organization - the church's hardcore elite, who sign billion-year contracts and work 110-hour weeks for pennies an hour, with never a day off or a chance to spend time with their families. Sea Org members can't have children, and live in dormitory settings with no privacy. Their existence is spartan and tough and, as we're told in the video, it's a lot of fun!
Well, if you say so. The pitch is delivered by David Hodkin, a lifer who grew up in Scientology and whose sister, Louisa, made news earlier this year with the first-ever religious Scientology wedding in England. (David himself had to go to Edinburgh to get an official Scientology wedding in 2007.)
