GRRRRR! In a recent "Sunday Funnies" article by Tony Ortega, he attached a copy the latest Church of Scientology Newsletter from Flag. Oct 2013 Issue #12. On the side of the newsletter, it reads "Non Profit Organization, US Postage Paid" http://www.scribd.com/doc/177422310/Fort-Harrison-Newsletter I don't know if this bothers anyone else, but it made me see red. The US post office has been complaining that it is hemorrhaging money and the price of a stamp is about to go up AGAIN. So we pay higher prices, while the cult gets a break? WTF? They give a break to the Church of Scientology on their postal costs for sending out Flag newsletters? And how many other orgs? How is going to the Ft. Harrison Hotel for courses and auditing a non profit venture? IT'S A FREAKING HOTEL. Their flyer is an advertisement for several their restaurants where you can inquire about group bookings. Their "Thanksgiving Weekend at Flag " states you can eat and also "Go Up The Bridge" and even talks about their Flower Shop and their Photo Contest (which people photographed all the flower arrangements and other flora around Flag and submitted it). Looks like they were very careful not to mention any pricing. But many other of their newsletters have in the past. Cab you please post them in this thread? And show the stamp! The US Postal Service financially helping the cult to send out this crap is on OUR dime. We end up paying the slack. Now I know I am going to hear that as long as the COS is still considered a non profit in the US, that they are entitled to the same benefits as other non profits. And yes it is also our dime on all their state wide properties that are not taxed. But are other non profits hawking courses, auditing, hotel stays and restaurants? This just enrages me. I wonder how much this last newsletter cost the US tax payers? In other words, the COS gets a break on postage, and then we have to pay the slack by mounting postal costs. Especially since the cult sends them out to anyone who ever stepped into Flag or other orgs. Would love to know what the exact rules are when it comes to the US post office awarding a Non Profit Stamp to non profits? Because I would bet that the COS breaks those rules, since they break the rules of being a non profit in the first place. Any non profit can not be charged with any crimes or have any one person receive inurement. Busted! I THINK SERIOUS POONS ARE NEEDED! The tax payers have to be made aware of this! Poon who? IDK! thoughts?
