Sure… whatever you say.
We will call it “donations” and then it won’t be “fundraising”… Or a book drive. Or a call for “volunteers”… You can be sure they asked for SOMETHING. There is no such thing as a “briefing,” in Scientology (especially when they are providing “refreshments”) that doesn’t have a heavy-handed “ask.”
The fact that this statement needs to be made is so telling about the state of scientology today. It has truly become the Vulture Culture. They circle endlessly and everywhere within the bubble.
On another note.
I got the first copies of the printed book! Exciting. Jack is happy too!
