David Miscavige is back for the big “New Year” bash at the Shrine Auditorium in LA next Saturday (Dec 16th — they do everything differently in scientology).
It seems, that in the “Scientology capital of the world” they are worried they cannot scrape together enough scientologists to fill the auditorium.
It only holds 6300 — and yet they are going to extraordinary lengths to bring in out of towners to make sure they at least the lower level of the Shrine.
Chicago can’t get 100 people to a local event, let alone shipping them off to LA. But the pitch — from CO FSSO less — “we all need to go to Los Angeles.”
Think about the fact that the number of Sea Org members in LA alone should be able to fill the Shrine: The Flag Bureau, SMI International, WISE International, ABLE International, ASI, Scientology Media Production, Celebrity Centre International, Bridge Publications, CLO WUS, AOLA, ASHO, LA Org and they also always bus in the staff from Golden Era and CST.
Don’t forget the other entities in LA: CCHR Int, Way to Happiness Fdn, Youth for Human Rights etc
And then there are the “Ideal Orgs” in LA — each of which should have 10,000 staff and public: Pasadena, Valley, Orange County, Ventura and Inglewood. And down the freeway San Diego.
With this array of scientology powerhouses available, why are they needing anyone from out of town? Aren’t they afraid they won’t have room for people who have flown in from the East Coast to attend and will have to be put in an “overflow hall” to watch it on a tv screen?
Apparently not, because they are very serious about bringing in out of towners — they have lined up 3 hotels to give special discounts to scientologists who fly in for the event.
Scientology, the fastest shrinking cult on earth.
