The desperation is oozing out of the bubble as scientology becomes more frantic trying to salvage their dismal PR in the eyes of the world.
Because they don’t actually DO anything good that is newsworthy, they resort to sending out paid press releases to try to get some coverage. Within the bubble, they blame the lack of media coverage on the “Chaos Merchants” run by SPs — of course they are not going to cover the good works of scientology! They are blind to two obvious contradictions — you can find plenty of stories by those same chaos merchants about the Red Cross or Salvation Army or local good samaritans. And if the Chaos Merchants aren’t going to cover any good news from scientology — then why pay money to send them press releases?
This is a recent release and it is about as bizarre a stretch as they come.
The “Year of the Rabbit” is even LESS significant to scientologists than Christmas or Yom Kippur or Ramadan (they pay much more attention to the first two as almost all scientology organizations are located in Judeo/Christian populations — not a single org in the Muslim world).
What is SO laughable about this release is the inclusion of Mr. Mickiewicz in the second paragraph. With a link to his hagiographic web page.
These days, it is a big sin in scientology to put out propaganda that doesn’t credit Mr. M. Just as treasonous as not get including an L. Ron Hubbard mention. And the Miscavige mention had better be the first one. His PR is not in good shape and someone had better be doing something about that.
The few remaining beaten dead horses in the OSA PR division must be in a living hell. Every day there is “entheta” media about Miscavige and scientology. Every day they are no doubt being excoriated for being such dismal failures and told to “take effective action.”
The truth is, posting this on my blog likely gets more readers than they got from paying for the press release…
Here it is in all it’s magnificence, including ALL the links they include.
KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan and LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 23, 2023 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Church of Scientology of Kaohsiung embarks on the Year of the Rabbit with the wish that the year brings happiness, prosperity, good fortune and peace to all.
They work to accomplish this wish, as they have since the Church’s dedication by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige in December 2013, by seeing to the spiritual growth of their parishioners, honoring Taiwan’s culture, and addressing social issues that impact the lives of the Taiwanese.
In an episode of “Destination: Scientology” on the Scientology Network, staff and members of the congregation share their love of the traditions of their country and its values and goals.
“Chinese New Year is a time when all family members come together to wish each other good luck,” says one of the staff interviewed in the documentary. And 15 days later they celebrate Lantern Festival, where the lanterns symbolize a new beginning with the hope for a brighter future.
The Church of Scientology of Taiwan embraces its responsibility for preserving the traditional Eastern culture for the next generation while uplifting the family and society in the true spirit of Taiwan.
Scientologists volunteer in schools in Kaohsiung and throughout the island, educating youth on the truth about drugs, raising awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and promoting values and life tools contained in The Way to Happiness, the common-sense guide to better living written by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard.
Year after year, the Taiwan Ministry of the Interior has acknowledged the work of Taiwan Scientologists by presenting the Church with the annual Meritorious Religious Group Award.
“It’s really about giving back,” says a staff member. “It’s really about what I can bring back to the community, what I can represent for my family. I could say it’s ‘the spirit of Taiwan’– to put that magic touch in everybody’s life.”
Destination: Scientology is an original series airing on the Scientology Network at DIRECTV channel 320 and streaming at Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms. Episodes take viewers inside Scientology Churches across the globe, where they discover what makes each Church unique, the diversity of Scientology Churches, and the cooperation that weaves each into the local community fabric.
