This is SICK.
I doubt Heber — who the church still promotes as its “President” — will be in attendance for the opening of the “Ideal Org” in the “First Scientology City” (huh)?
The gall of these people to put a picture of Heber on their poster — when he is locked up and only allowed out for the funeral of his son (and only after Karen DelaCarriere shamed the church into it). He doesn’t have another son, so I guess he isn’t ever getting out again until its his funeral. Update: I did not inspect this poster closely enough and several have pointed out that the shot is in fact Leo Champion. I used something that had been sent to me without inspecting it closely enough. I look like an idiot — not for the first time in my life. Nevertheless, it is still true that Heber was a VERY prominent part of the “Portland Crusade” and the RCS is trying to capitalize on the memory of that, while pretending Heber, the PRESIDENT of the church, no longer exists.
Selective memory at its finest.
I am not a fan of picketers, but this is a time when I think some people carrying picket signs WOULD be appropriate. Maybe something like this:
WE Remember Heber —
Miscavige Locked Him Up
and Threw Away The Key
WE DO REMEMBER HEBER
LET HIM OUT OF THE HOLE
Get them right in Dear Leader’s face.
