And Scientology is content with selling books, tapes & auditing. You guys are stuck in the 80’s.

You Scientology yahoos are really missing the boat … I mean, look at your web site for just one minute. Now tell me, WHERE is the menu link for the STORE?? You launched the Golden Age of Tech Phase II in 2013 and what did all the little Scilons have to show for it? No buttons, no stickers, no mouse pads, no coffee mugs … NOTHING. I’ll bet they wish they could have clicked on the “STORE” button and bought some stuff.

You know … THE STORE??? Where the folks can buy neat bumper stickers with the Scientology logo and cool L. Ron Hubbard sayings on them, Challenge Coins with DM’s likeness on one side and logo on the other, T-Shirts with your OT level, gift cards where you could pay for auditing for a less fortunate Scientologist and hundreds of other gifts and resources. And think about this … little silver or gold E-meter replica necklaces or bracelets. Wow, now we’re talking serious marketing genius.

“I wish I had a pin that said ‘I’m a Scientologist,’ if you have questions, come ask me.”

“I wish I had a pin that said ‘I’m a Scientologist,’ if you have questions, come ask me.”

I mean come on … sure, you sell tons of books and recordings of the Great One himself but you have completely missed out on a revenue stream that could generate 7 … 8 figures a month. DM … are you freaking listening?

Give the folks what they want. After all, don’t the faithful want folks to know that they’re on a mission to clear the planet. After all … that’s what the young lady said on your web page “What Scientologists Say About Scientology,” assuming she wasn’t just an actor or something.

And who wouldn’t want a Squirrel Buster Hat — dude, that would be an epic score. In camo complete with a GoPro camera!

You can only imagine where we could take this discussion from here, right?

Late last year, the Daily Mail (UK) published an extensive report on the secret high security installations built by the Church of Scientology. Alledgedly, among these properties were special “END OF THE WORLD” bunkers built exclusively for high ranking (read: celebrities) Scientologists. Now that some of the church’s finances are being questioned, these pieces of real estate are bound to come under closer scrutiny. Like the old political proverb says … “Just follow the money.”
