The Church of Scientology of Latter-Day Dolts: Video evidence of the fall - 2016-01-20
For a few years, we've been telling you that Scientology is in a poorly way. Many different sources of evidence suggest that the 65-year-old movement has been suffering from a mass exodus of longtime, loyal members. Many others remain in the group but hold back from participating as they react to leader David Miscavige's ever-increasing desperation in the form of hard-sell begging for donations.
We hear constantly about empty facilities, dwindling attendance at events, and withering stats. Meanwhile, the desperation is so palpable, Scientology has reached out to another struggling group, the Nation of Islam, for a bizarre partnership that seems little more than a last-ditch effort to count a few more bodies in the shop.
But how does that weird mashup work in practice? Recently, an advertisement for a Nation of Islam/Scientology event caught our eye. "Give Birth to a God," it said, and promoted a joint presentation by Nation of Islam member (and Scientology Super Power graduate) Sister Nayyirah Muhammad and midwife and Scientology Clear Heather Moll.
