Updated for 2022: Where in the world are Scientologists actually located?

 
We told you recently that we had heard some scary news about our old friend, Operation Clambake operator Andreas Heldal-Lund. At his Facebook account, he explained that he’d collapsed in a supermarket and had woken up in a hospital after having some kind of seizure.

Whatever it was, he had clearly been pushing himself too hard on the software engineering projects he’d been working on, and he let us know that he’s now taking some time off and enjoying the great outdoors. We were very glad to hear it.

But he was also still getting spam from Scientology, if you can believe that, which included some come-ons for its television channel, and Andreas forwarded them to us.

Among them was this, which let us know that two years later, Scientology is still begging members to send in videos about themselves to post on its website…

And since we were reminded of that, we thought, what the heck, we’ll update our tally of the videos.

Since April 30, 2020, Scientology has been posting about four new videos every day from members relating briefly how they’re getting on in the pandemic, but for us the value of these was that they give their location. As of this morning, Scientology has posted 3,381 of the videos, and we’ve tallied the locations of every one of them. And if that number sounds high, remember that Scientology claims to have millions of members around the world, and what they’ve actually posted is much more in agreement of what we’ve been saying for years, that the actual number of active membership is only in the tens of thousands, worldwide.

We know there are plenty of caveats to keep in mind here, but the larger the sample size grows, the more accurate a picture we may be getting about where Scientologists remain as the church dwindles. At least we’re getting to see where there are members who are motivated enough to make videos of themselves and send them in.

Here again are the top ten countries that the videos came from, updated to the latest total.

1. USA: 1025 videos
2. Taiwan: 429
3. Mexico: 315
4. UK: 244
5. Australia: 230
6. South Africa: 156
7. Italy: 119
8. Canada: 89

9. Ecuador: 71
10. Colombia: 64

And here’s the full list of videos and their locations, now compiled for the 3,381 videos that had been uploaded as of this morning. And we’ll say it again: These numbers do not equal the number of Scientologists in those areas, just the number of Scientologists who submitted videos of themselves for the “At Home” program and that the church has selected to post on its website. We think the total number of active Scientologists is around 20,000, so with more than 3,300 videos posted, this may give us a good indication of where about fifteen percent of the overall membership is located, which is a substantial percentage.

Sign up for a daily email when we post a new story on Scientology.

Did you know you can get an email every morning when we post our daily Scientology story? We know some of the folks who come to the Underground Bunker aren’t here to talk about the politics of the day, and that’s why we created a daily politics feature over at our other blog, The Lowdown, and we ask readers to take their political discussions over there. And if you drop us a line at tonyo94 AT gmail, we’ll put you on the list so you get a morning reminder that a new Scientology story has been posted — and only for our Scientology stories.

“There is a civilization a few galaxies over here that, it’s got spaceships and backpacks and infantry zerp guns, and it’s got this, and it’s got certain types of motorcycles, and it’s got that, and so forth. Probably a lot of you are from there because every time it loses a battle they ship the people over here — the enemy does. They know how to get even. So anyway, this old civilization is just about the meanest area to try to put an idea into it you ever had. You see, they worked it out for years and eons and eons. Been going for billions and trillions and trillions of years with an uninterrupted flow, which is pretty unusual in civilizations anyhow, see, and is on a complete, perfect no-Change. And you say, ‘We got an idea for spaceships.’ Their spaceships aren’t all that good. They’re as good as spaceships can be, but you could undoubtedly make a better spaceship, you see. But they blow up on occasion and they do this on occasion, they do that on occasion. They mess up one way or the other. And yet to try to get any idea across to them fills the hierarchy of that particular activity with absolute horror. Because they’ve lived with and through all of the areas of innovation, and innovation to them is dangerous on a departure from the highly workable.” — L. Ron Hubbard, April 16, 1964

“Division III where has the packaged soup come from? This is strictly against Flag Order. Where are such dishes as bean and ham soup, Irish stew, beef ragout, noodles and tuna, chicken and noodle soup, green pea soup and ham, chili con carne, fresh vegetable soup, baked beans and franks, shepherd’s pie, chicken and dumplings, lentil soup, potato soup, and chicken and rice soup. Midday meals are to be such as these — good and sustaining.” — MarySue Hubbard, Captain, April 16, 1969

Overheard in the FreeZone

“Lafayette Hubbard, I know you’re on to something great. The simplicity of words is such a skill. I think — and I apologize for evaluating — that your last-life introduction to writing was influenced by the classics. These authors, as was the style of the time, wrote in vast prose using more words than needed to get to the point. It was necessary to prove one was not just smart but educated. You, in your this-life writing style, are throwing the old-school Scientologists for a loop. They expect vast verbiage and you deliver it in concise, to the point, easily understood form. They are confused because it isn’t the way you used to say it or write it. Good. They will come around when they understand you are eliminating the need to spend years studying what can be learned in months.”

Past is Prologue

1999: MSNBC reported on Scientologist John Coale’s relationship with the U.S. President. “John Coale, the high-profile Washington lawyer who has been behind several big anti-tobacco cases, continues to solidify his White House ties. Coale, and his high-profile wife, CNN commentator Greta van Susteren, are high-level Scientologists. Some say Coale is taking on certain cases to get closer to Clinton in his anti-tobacco cases and to further Scientology’s various causes. ‘No one ever accused John Coale of being dumb,’ says a source who has dealt with him often as an adversary. ‘His and Greta’s ties with the Clintons certainly don’t hurt them.'”
