 Scientology has two main awards ceremonies per year.

[Swedish meatballs.]

Like last year, on this final Sunday in 2019 we asked Rod Keller to give us his own year in review.

 In the past year we have seen an increase in the number of Scientologists taking the How To Confront And Shatter Suppression – PTS/SP Course.

Scientologists use faith healing to convince fire victims they’re actually helping

 Australia’s largest city, Sydney, is surrounded by brush fires. Smoke covered the city this week leading some residents to seek medical attention. Six have died so far and more than 2.5 million acres and hundreds of homes have been burned. As we reported last year, disasters of this scale are an opportunity for Scientology to []

Scientology’s sleep cures are enough to keep you up at night

 The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has a new article on its blog that deserves comment. CCHR has a harder time than other Scientology front groups who can keep their writings based on some truth in their chosen issue. Foundation for a Drug Free World can write truthfully about how using illegal drugs is []

 The Scientology Network (Scientology TV) may be the only digital property in the world being marketed primarily by hand. []

Add ‘The Last Samurai’ to Tom Cruise movies Scientology uses for themed fundraising

[Brisbane ‘Last Samurai’ Ideal Org event]

How do you get Scientologists to come to fundraising parties when they know they’re going to be hounded for donations for new building projects? Themed costume parties continue to be a popular strategy, and we’ve seen them use everything from gangster and vampire films to Star Wars and yes, the []
