The Church of Scientology
Celebrity Centre International
The Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood
where Mr. David Miscavige delivered his "This is Scientology" speech to over 2,000 guests on the occasion of the Celebrity Centre's 35th Anniversary Gala.
What is Scientology?
Scientology exists to provide help — help for all people — at every strata of life, of every disability or ability and across all ethnic and religious boundaries.
Borne out of this desire to help are the many social betterment activities Scientology supports. From our education programs, providing real answers to declining literacy levels, to our solutions for criminal reform and drug-rehabilitation — everything we do in Scientology is in the name of help.
Thus, while we continue our work to bring real solutions to those areas of society most in need, we also realize that we must not forget those individuals upon whom society depends the most.
L. Ron Hubbard once said, "The world is carried on the backs of a desperate few." Unfortunately, it is these desperate few who are often the most neglected.
It is for this reason that L. Ron Hubbard saw to the formation of a special Church of Scientology, which would cater to these individuals — the artists, politicians, leaders of industry, sports figures and anyone with the power and vision to create a better world. That Church is the Scientology Celebrity Centre International.
Now one might argue that these individuals already have benefits that many will never have. But, ask any one of them — ask yourself — it can become a lonely world. Subject to the unusual pressures that come with prominence and responsibility, being looked upon under a microscope for good or bad — these are burdens others can't imagine. Not to mention the counter-attack such individuals are subjected to by those less-ambitious who would rather fight to maintain a "status quo" than allow another to attempt a change or improvement.
You see, there's no shame in helping the artist. In fact, in the larger scope of societal help, we had better help the artist if we wish to advance the society at all.
