AOLA’s grand re-opening — a look at the last time Scientology cut the ribbon at Big Blue!

AOLAMarty

On Sunday, Scientology will have a ceremony to celebrate the re-opening of the Advanced Organization of Los Angeles (AOLA), where wealthy church members go to receive high-level “Operating Thetan” courses and auditing on their way up L. Ron Hubbard’s “Bridge to Total Freedom.” But this isn’t the first time the church has had a grand re-opening of the facility. It also happened in 1998, and look who cut the ribbon!

Yes, that’s none other than Mark ‘Marty’ Rathbun, when he was Inspector General of Ethics and the right hand man to Scientology leader David Miscvige.

Hey, and look behind him — people are holding umbrellas! Somehow, in Southern California, where it never rains, there were showers at the re-opening in 1998 and now the re-opening in 2014. Fun!

Oh, the pageantry…

We can’t wait to see what triumphant photos come out of this weekend’s re-grand-opening celebration, and we can only hope they feature the diminutive Captain David Miscavige.

Texas appeals court asks for a response from Monique Rathbun

The Church of Scientology recently filed a petition for a writ of mandamus with the Texas Third Court of Appeals in an attempt to keep its leader, David Miscavige, out of a deposition in Monique Rathbun’s harassment lawsuit against the church. Now, the court has asked Monique to respond to the facts stated in that petition, and she has until March 7 to comply.

As soon as we can get a copy of what she files, we’ll post it here. In the meantime, here’s the court’s brief letter to her…
