The Top 25 People Enabling Scientology, No. 13: Google and other tech titans - 2020-10-08
On September 6, 2014 — six years ago, an eternity in Internet time — Sea Org lifer Brandy Harrison, the "Building Expansion Director Int," got up in front of a crowd of Scientologists in the San Fernando Valley who had paid $100 each to be there and told them that their church had already received $5.7 million in advertising grants from search giant Google.
We managed to obtain an audio recording of her remarks that night about the way Scientology's relationship with Google had developed.
In the Bay Area a representative of Google was introduced to Scientology and our 4th dynamic campaigns through the Stevens Creek Ideal Org. This representative connected us up with the department responsible for non-profit advertisements. And as a result, Google awarded us a $10,000-a-month grant for free online advertising.
