Here is a question for Church of Scientology members: Why doesn't the church publish good news about itself?
If you are a True Believer and a member of the Church of Scientology, you will, of course, believe in the Great Anti-Scientology Conspiracy. And this Conspiracy explains why everyone else doesn't publish good news about the church...
But why doesn't the Church of Scientology publish its own "Good News" for the world to admire?
You go to David Miscavige's Big Events, and you hear about the church's "solutions" around the world, and you hear about the church's "expansion" and you stand and applaud, but none of these things appear outside of the church. The Big Event DVDs are kept under strict lock and key, and the penalties for leaking any of this information are very severe. No one but Scientologists must see these events, and even they must not record any part of it or take any notes.
Why is every bit of the Church of Scientology's "good news" secret? Why doesn't this "news" get released and reported? Not only do major media not report anything and not only are all other news outlets silent about this "news" but the Church of Scientology itself doesn't even report it via press releases.
Don't you find that quite odd?
We know the Church of Scientology understands press releases because you will see their press releases appear now and then -- but those only contain anecdotal stories about individual Scientologists' personal opinions and personal experiences.
Never news. Never facts. (But you are not supposed to notice that.)
And Scientologists need to be asking why. Why doesn't the church issue press releases about all its "good news"? If there is all that good news, why doesn't the church tell the world?
The answer is quite obvious and quite simple. The Chuch of Scientololgy only issues stories about personal opinions and personal experiences because no one can fact-check those.
The church knows, from past experience, that if they publish any of the claims from Miscavige's Big Events, people around the world will fact-check everything, and every single lie the church tells will be exposed.
This is not some idle fear, it has happened time and time again: One of Miscavige's "amazing" claims gets leaked and people around the world visit the locations and contact the people involved -- and inevitably find Miscavige has lied. Again.
And so, knowing that everything he claims will be fact-checked, David Miscavige keeps his events very secret and the church makes no claims at all in any of their press releases. They know that nothing they claim will withstand careful investigation.
Everything Miscavige claims is a lie. The proof is in the Church of Scientology's complete silence.
