Every year, scientology rolls out the posters about how the US Government is making it especially easy to give more money to scientology.
Unfortunately, this is one of the only true things they ever say.
And one of the most galling.
The entire US Government is certainly not on the side of scientology. There are many government agencies that do not agree with scientology even being recognized as a tax exempt religious organization, but unfortunately, the most important one, the IRS, seems to be in the minority. Though truth be told, I suspect there are plenty of people in the IRS who do not agree with the decision either, but overcoming the inertia of a huge bureaucracy to get them to take unprompted action rather than just letting sleeping dogs lie is not in their DNA. They require enormous outside pressure to get moving. From the media and from politicians and perhaps other law enforcement agencies.
Just think about this as you pay your taxes which provide the infrastructure scientology uses (even down to taking PPP loans….)
It’s maddening, but that is no reason to stop talking about it. There has to be continuous focus on the truth about scientology. Eventually, justice will be done.
