Soderqvist1: I have read your two messages, and you seem to me to be a truth believer of Scientology, and I will reply to two of your points!
A Piece of Blue Sky Epilogue
In 1938 Hubbard's single goal was to achieve immortality in name. In his last few years money was siphoned from the Church to Hubbard. The IRS criminal investigators came on the scene too late. With Hubbard's death the investigation was abandoned, but money continued to gush into Author Services Inc., and from thence to the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST). This Church has as its sole function the perpetuation not of Scientology, but of the name L. Ron Hubbard. CST records presented in a tax case in Washington, DC, show that CST has assets of over $500 million. On 28 January 1990, The New Mexican reported that CST had dug a 350-foot tunnel into a mesa to store Hubbard's writings, which are being preserved at enormous expense using state of the art techniques. CST intend this storage facility to survive even nuclear war. There are also storage facilities near Los Angeles and in northern California.
Thankyou for the first intelligent reply to this thread. Sometimes I wonder if ESMB is worthwhile, but I found this interesting. I have an Open Channel here, with you rabble and with Scientology. Sometimes I admonish, sometimes I praise. I'd like to criticise Scientology more but I find I have to defend it against the *** I read.
Really what all this suggests is that Brennan was put in the job by DM, where he surely committed overts. You would have to check if anything was suppressed, and any wins were really overts.
Brennan was just in the right place at the right time when a whole lot of personnel changes were made. But his ego puts him up there as a "former senior leader of Scientology". Needs a whole lot of old time creative processing starting at step 7.
The law is an SP area, Brennan was good at it, just another SP. To be ethical in the law you really need your Scientology basics in.
I'm critical of DM, but I also take some of the reports about him with a grain of salt.
Your final point shows that the reserves are being used for Scientology purposes. What about the great pyramid? I'll bet in its day it had its critics, the dynasty was overthrown before the project complex was completed.
You all believe in MEST. Typically when people leave Scientology they do a great big agreement with the MEST universe. I know, I did when I left staff. The MEST is irrelevant, that's the real point about this inquiry. As Jesus pointed out. The only question can be is the money used for religious purposes. If building a tunnel to keep it for eternity, pyramid style, that fine. Even DM who is reputed to have private apartment by Marty, and spending money on diving when he goes to the ship, this would be such small beer for a CEO of any corporation, and lavish residences of every Archbishop in every capital city, let alone the Pope. Its irrelevant.
Thankyou for an excellent post, which despite some entheta, contained interesting data.
