Colombian roast: Will Scientologists care about David Miscavige's latest fraud? - 2018-08-02
We are shocked to learn that a public relations stunt involving the leader of the Church of Scientology and a retired Colombian national police general which took place earlier this year on the island of Barbados turns out be a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
For several years, Colombia has been playing straight man to Scientology leader David Miscavige's neverending practical jokes that he runs on his own followers. One of the biggest canards he requires his acolytes to swallow is that Scientology is actually having some beneficial effect on that troubled South American country, and we've seen numerous Colombian police figures dutifully pose for photos and accept shiny medals and slick commendations as their part in the production.
But now, retired general Carlos Ramiro Mena has reportedly gotten himself into some hot water not for accepting a medal from Miscavige, but for pinning one on the diminutive ecclesiastical honcho in the name of the country's national police, which he was not authorized to do.
