Scientology’s new survey is a hoot — we’re itching for your answers!

  On Monday, we told you that we’d gotten our mitts on a new Sea Org application that Scientology is asking marks to fill out before they sign billion-year contracts and start working around the clock.

See the Scientology-like ad for Scientologist-owned ABCMouse, made by Scientologists!

  We seem to catch people by surprise every time we point this out, but ABCMouse is not only a hugely successful digital educational enterprise, it’s also helping its owner, Age of Learning founder Doug Dohring, funnel millions of dollars in donations to the Church of Scientology.

If it’s wrong to love Scientology hip-hop, we don’t want to be right

  Peter Bonyai asked us if we’d seen a three-year-old video put out by Scientology which features one of our favorite performers, Scientology’s in-house hip hop giant, Chill EB. We told him we weren’t sure, but we really didn’t need much excuse to visit it again as long as the Chillmaster was in it.

Scientology TV was launched with a massive ad campaign — is it working?

  It’s been more than two weeks since David Miscavige premiered Scientology TV, a project he’s been working on for years. And not only is he spending a boatload for his TV channel — carried on DirecTV and a mess of apps — but it’s pretty obvious that the church has paid for a […]

Scientology TV gives viewers a glimpse of the church’s most secret locations — but why?

  Scientology TV is still unwatchable, but since its debut more than a week ago, we’ve enjoyed keeping an eye on the reactions it’s generating on social media.
