Here is the hype from scientology.org about the wondrous launch of the “future of scientology” in the “European Commonwealth.”
Somehow there is no mention of the size of the crowd (I wonder why?)
But there is plenty of Shermanspeak hype to keep the clubbed seals clapping. Just a sample:
If you happened to be in Copenhagen, Denmark the afternoon of October 25, you could have seen the future of Scientology in Europe unfold literally before your eyes.
An historic moment in the Church of Scientology’s ambitious global progression arrived this Saturday with the dedication of its Ideal Continental Liaison Office for Europe (CLO EU). The sprawling facility’s importance as a central European headquarters fueling the religion’s epic expansion throughout the continent and indeed the world cannot be overstated.
Cannot be overstated? You have succeeded admirably.
At the CLO EU event itself, Mr. Miscavige told the gathered celebrants that the new center will “lay a firm foundation from which to extend our Golden Age ever outward.” He expressed confidence that Scientology’s “message of truth and immortality will be heard from Scandinavia to Siberia – and so deliver an empire of wisdom and knowledge to every corner of this storied land.”
Such magnificent grandiloquence….
“You will be able to record translated versions of L. Ron Hubbard lectures in such remote tongues as Farsi, Swahili, Urdu, Hindi and Zulu as well as all of the aforementioned languages,” Mr. Miscavige emphasized. “In that way, we make Dianetics and Scientology available to upwards of five billion human beings the world over.”
Problem is that nobody wants them.
The opening serves to carry forward the momentum generated by Scientology’s explosive international growth. It began with the proliferation of Ideal Churches of Scientology throughout every continent, each providing the full scope of religious services to their parishioners and humanitarian programs to communities.
The momentum of scientology’s explosive international growth generated by the proliferation of “ideal” orgs doesn’t seem to have reached Europe just yet. The last “ideal org” in Europe was opened in Padova Italy in October 2012. That is more than 2 YEARS AGO. Explosive growth? Where?
One thing you have to acknowledge David Miscavige for.
The ability to stand before thousands of people and lie to their faceswithout appearing even slightly embarrassed. Over. And over. And over.
