The Birthday Con

LRH’s Birthday Game was designed to encourage Organizations to make it up to the size and productivity of Old St Hill.  During the life of LRH the game consisted of orgs competing by reporting up a number of production statistics reflecting delivery of Scientology services to the public. During that time and for a few years after LRH passed away the Birthday Game resulted in several orgs actually achieving something on the order of Old St Hill size.

Since David Miscavige’s assumption of total dictatorship over Scientology Inc the LRH Birthday Game has been gradually corrupted into a  Con.  The game receives lip service for the sole purpose of giving Miscavige justification for conducting an event each March 13th wherein he can have awards passed out.  For St Hill size orgs?  For the past decade and one half, no.  The “game” has been so corrupted it does not even lead to expansion.  Instead, it leads to a bunch of busy work on statistics that lead to a photo op in some Div 6 course room, at best.  Recent evidence indicates the game is now little more than a con.

The email below authored and circulated by the Birthday Game I/C of  the Los Angeles Foundation Organization says it all.  LA Foundation is vying to win the Birthday Game by:

a) Putting a bunch of veteran Scientologists onto a Div 6 (beginner, new public) course part-time (which can only detract from the org product of auditors made)

b) Increasing IAS (International Association of Scientologists) donations (which diverts gross income, staff pay, and money paid for auditing and training – all vital to org success)

Subject: RUSH: LA FDN still #1 – Can you help this final week of the Birthday Game? 

It’s a very tight game.  LA Fdn has this final week to maintain their lead and pull off the final victory!  They have never won a Birthday Game before, so this is amazingly exciting.  If you like to help, now is the moment of truth!

Bring in friends, family, YOURSELF!  If you are already onlines doing a course somewhere else, come into LAF and join our Life Improvement Club!
This Club is for active Scientologists.  All you have to do is add just one course period a week, in the Div.6 Life Improvement Courseroom.  This gives you the opportunity to zoom in on improving specific areas of your life without taking away from your Bridge progress.

My husband and I have done many of the Life Improvement Courses in this way and it is so worth it!  Those courses are so stabilizing.
