Hva vil scientologiorganisasjonen gjøre dersom noen påstår de er L. Ron Hubbard i et nytt legeme?
Vi finner kanskje et svar på det spørsmålet, skriver Tony Ortega, som melder at en tidligere kriminell påstår nettopp det, at han er scientologigrunnleggeren:
In recent weeks, the independent and ex-Scientology communities have been buzzing about a man who claims to be Lafayette Ronald Hubbard — and even had his name formally changed to that last year. He lives in a rural community outside Seattle, but his website claims that he’s at the ranch in Creston, California where Hubbard died in 1986.
That’s only one cute detail that suggests “LRH” is having everyone on. But it’s been interesting to see some of the indies really going all in on this.
We reached out to “Ron” (and more about that later) after he gave a video interview to one of the more credulous members of the indie community, a guy named Brian Cox.
What neither Cox nor “Ron” discussed in that interview was Ron’s background before he decided to change his name.
So with the help of one of our excellent researchers, we decided to check that out on our own. And if Hubbard has come back, he made a pretty curious choice about which vessel to use.
