Well, they even gotta lie when the truth would serve them better.
In particular see this statement by David Miscavige church of Scientology Inc. spokesperson Karin Pouw:
The Headleys asked the church to allow them to pay the fee in four monthly installments, but the church said no, they said. The church received no such proposal, Pouw said.
Now, please compare that to a letter the same Karin Pouw sent on church of Scientology Inc. letterhead to Vanity Fair a few days earlier, and particularly this passage here:
Mr. Headley claimed he was incapable of paying the court-ordered costs to the Church. Within days of losing his case, Mr. Headley’s attorney represented that his client could only pay $1,000 in total. Then he offered $1,000 a month for 30 months, reflecting Mr. Headley’s lack of funds.
Miscavige, did Marc make an installment proposal?
Or, Dave, didn’t he make an installment proposal?
As the late great Earle Cooley would say, how do you want to leave it?
you can’t even lie straight in bed, can you?
