Here’s proof that Scientology members have to be forced to watch Scientology TV

[Scientology leader David Miscavige, TV star]

We mentioned the other day that former Scientology mission leader Dani Lemberger told us he assumes that Scientologists will be interrogated on whether they’ve been watching the new unwatchable Scientology TV network. Well, that was a pretty good guess, because one of our sources in the church has smuggled out to us a document that proves it!

We really enjoy the beginning of this document which describes a Scientology org where none of the staff was watching the new DirecTV channel! Horrors! To make sure that doesn’t happen again, this document was sent out to the staffs around the world — you better watch this thing David Miscavige is spending so much money on, or else!

We’re reproducing the entire document here, even though the white pages will give you flashbacks to just how awful these shows are, if you have dared to give them a peek.

Just keep pouring money on that fire, Dave! Even your own people won’t go near this thing!





Hey, we’re only 13 days away from this year’s HowdyCon in Chicago, June 21-23. As in past years, we’re looking forward to meeting readers of the Bunker, culminating in Saturday night’s main event.

The biggest difference this year is that our Saturday night event is separate from that evening’s dinner. Chee Chalker is setting up an inexpensive pizza dinner that you don’t need to pay for ahead of time, after which we’ll walk over to the theater where our event, hosted by Chicago Fire star Christian Stolte, will take place. Because it’s a separate event, we’re asking that you pay $10 each to get into the Saturday night event, which will help us recoup what the Bunker paid for the venue. (We have never made a penny on our HowdyCon meetups, we only try to break even.)

Please email your proprietor (tonyo94 AT gmail) in order to reserve your spot for Saturday night’s main event. Seating is limited, and we’re going to have some really interesting people on stage and they may make a few announcements that you don’t want to miss.
