Scientology Inc. is in nuclear panic mode over this HBO documentary by Alex Gibney that premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival and will be shown on HBO March 16.
Their reaction has been to run full page ads in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and USA Today.
I’ve addressed the New York Times ad already in this video
but I want to quickly comment on this USA Today ad that ran five days ago right now.
First: 24 Million?
If this was true, don’t you think the mainstream media would have noticed and reported on it?
Here’s Page One results of a Google search for “Scientology Volunteer Minister disaster relief”
They’re all links to Scientology owned websites!
In our world of 24 hour cable news channels, none of them bothered to report on Scientology’s “Largest independent relief force on Earth”?
Does that make any sense to you?
200,000 Scientology Volunteer Ministers?
There aren’t 200,000 Scientologists in the world. There aren’t even 100,000 Scientologists on the entire planet! I’ve reported on the actual number of Scientologists before in this video report:
The American Red Cross is probably the largest relief force on Earth. Take a look at their Twitter page – 1.9 million followers. The Official Scientology Volunteer Minister Twitter page has 2,000 followers.
There is also a tremendous disparity in the number of likes on their Official Facebook pages too.
Don’t believe ANYTHING you hear or read from a Scientologist, or Scientology Inc.
Do you own investigation.
