Sunday Funnies: CCHR’s annual gala — time, place, form, and event!

SoloSmallWe have another fun collection of Scientology fliers for you this week. As usual, we’re getting a glimpse into the church’s unrelenting fundraising gimmicks.

But there’s also some news here. One of our tipsters managed to snag for us a CCHR flier about this year’s gala. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is one of Scientology’s oldest front groups, and it’s engaged in a comical attack on the psychiatric profession. If you were with us last year, you may remember that we managed to obtain some CCHR fliers, but for some reason they never stated the time and place for the annual gala.

This time, for some reason CCHR was less shy.

As you can see in this mailer, CCHR’s annual gala will take place at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles on February 1.



This next item came from a tipster who stumbled across something interesting as she was watching an Adobe software tutorial. For some reason, Adobe chose a book by L. Ron Hubbard, Spy Killer, for a video about how to lay out an ebook with its InDesign program. It’s odd, isn’t it?


Here’s another upcoming event to look forward to — the IAS is celebrating its whales at the Beverly Hills Hotel on March 23. We’ve seen the latest list of Scientology’s biggest donors, and we hope to have some images of them with their trophies soon.
