VIDEO LEAK: Scientology's November IAS Gala, featuring a slimmed-down David Miscavige - 2014-01-06
Our video elves have been busy again, and we have another treat for you.
The International Association of Scientologists was founded in 1984 as a legal defense fund for the church. Members are constantly hit up for donations to the IAS, and are told to "up their status" by giving thousands and thousands more. Usually, the IAS gala is held in October in England, and is a time for celebrating Scientology's successes during the year. This time, however, Scientology leader David Miscavige had the giant tent shipped from England and held the event in Florida, part of what seems to be an increasing consolidation of the movement in Clearwater.
