Where does all that money go?

To pay for “stuff!”

It pays to pitch Scientology, according to earnings reports the church has filed with the Internal Revenue Service. One man averaged almost $200,000 a year in commissions from the fees of new members he had solicited to become Scientologists.

The church gives its proselytizers 10 to 15 percent of what newcomers “donate” for church services, such as the process called auditing that tells how far from salvation the newcomer is. That means the top pitchman in the 1990s, identified only as Barry Klein, drummed up more than $1.3 million for Scientology each year.

Another interesting expense is this: $7 million on the seven nuclear blast-resistant doors for a vault where Hubbard’s papers would be stored within titanium capsules, which cost another $7 million.
