Here is a new paid press release from scientology in Clearwater.
They are trying to make people think everyone is welcome to come on down to the Ft Harrison and hold their event under the grandeur of the Bohemian crystal chandelier.
Anyone, unless it is someone that espouses an idea the church disagrees with — despite its repeated claims to champion free speech.
And any group that chooses to do an event there had better realize they will be used as PR fodder — scientology promoting their presence as if it means a full endorsement of the church.
But perhaps the most remarkable thing about this is that there are supposedly 12,000 scientologists in the local area and they have a single ballroom and an auditorium amongst all of them. How is it possible they are not using these facilities full time? Hell, I took my son to VPK this morning at a local christian church. It was “grandparents day” at the primary school and there was literally nowhere to park — at least 400 cars. This local church, one of HUNDREDS in Pinellas County, has 4 Sheriffs there every Sunday morning to direct traffic. And it is by far NOT the biggest church even in north Pinellas County.
Scientology claims they are “uplifting countries” — they don’t even manage to uplift counties. Even the county with what they claim is the largest number of scientologist on earth (LA is spread over 4 counties). Scientology is like a flea on the end of an elephant’s tail claiming responsibility for it swishing to swat flies. “Our epic elephant moving is 63x anything in our history – we are the largest force of elephant wranglers in the universe and have the only effective tech to accomplish this proven by our unprecedented effectiveness in directing elephants. We 8ced them to the watering hole –without us they would perish. We are their only hope.”
