Each October, the whales return to East Grinstead, England in an annual migration that we find absolutely fascinating.

We're talking, of course, about the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) events that take place each year over an October weekend in England, when Scientology leader David Miscavige gathers his biggest donors to honor them with new "statuses."

Scientology makes a game out of giving the church huge sums, begging big donors — we call them "whales" — to turn over more and more in the hopes of reaching a new status level, a bigger trophy, and the prospect of being feted at the IAS gala and included in a subsequent issue of Impact magazine.
