Scientologists could put money to better use

In a letter to the St. Petersburg Times…

Money could go to better use

In this time of recession, when people are losing jobs, houses are going to foreclosure and times basically are tough all over for everyone, it’s nice to see the cult of greed spending $40 million on renovations to its lair — not for the good of the community or to help those less fortunate, but to add to its own excess.

As a “religion” and a “church,” you would think that Scientology would put that money to better use. And I like the fact that they told people that the restaurants and ballroom in the renovated Fort Harrison Hotel would be open to the public, but once the renovations were complete they had a change of heart.

Strikes me as ironic when a “reader” has to point out the obvious.

    As far as I can tell, aside from his fixation on wasting parishioner money, David Miscavige has a fixation on erecting tall buildings — each a monument to himself. Maybe it’s to make up for his puny stature? Anyway, spending $40 million on a building is quite unnecessary since there are already numerous buildings dedicated to men of his character… San Quentin, Folsom, Leavenworth, Attica among others.
