Scientology nostalgia: Never-before-seen photos from a 2001 celebrity wankfest - 2021-01-18
Hey, we're going to have a little fun today. We recently managed to get our hands on some photos from a 2001 event that may represent an apotheosis for celebrity-driven Scientology. And for that reason, we think it's worth revisiting.
The event was the opening of a new Scientology mission in San Francisco, and it took place on September 29, 2001, yes, just a couple of weeks after the terrorist attacks that changed our world entirely.
On September 11, Scientology leader David Miscavige reacted to the attacks by issuing Inspector General Network Bulletin No. 44, titled "Wake-Up Call," which would become a refrain he would use over and over at subsequent events.
