Cuz many high profile Hollywood actors and other folks are linked to it, and are directly profiting from its shenanigans. That’ll be a bad business move.

外围体育投注They act as super agents for celebrities. They negotiate, aggressively, for better deals and contract protection. They provide vacation get aways free from paparazzi. They provide rehab facilities that are hidden and keep it out of the press. And they use this information to ensure the celebrities stay with the "church". They only require that celebrities give them a good chunk of money, recruit new celebrities, and never talk bad about the church. Small price to pay for extreme job security. Look at Danny Masterson. They were able to keep him employed after years and years of sexual assault allegations.

Now it's a terrible deal for everyone else involved with them. Regular members are treated as slaves, exploited, threatened, black mailed, and brainwashed into giving everything they have to keep things going.

外围体育投注They’re the second largest real estate owner in LA. This is a real wealthy organization.

I don't think that's it - there's not that外围体育投注 many. It's more that the "fair game" policy against people who criticize them means it's just not worth the fight for most of them. Most of the things that they speak out about are pretty safe targets that won't cost them personally to speak out against. "Crazy cult whose main characteristic is its relentless harassment campaigns against anyone who speaks out about it, and is also weirdly obsessed with celebrities" is not a safe target for a celebrity to criticize.

外围体育投注I feel like the only “high profile” Hollywood actors in Scientology left are Tom Cruise and Elisabeth Moss.

Scientology is bigger and more powerful than Hollywood.

外围体育投注So these celebrities are pretty much as bad as the Epstein bunch.

Yeah okay

Listen here's the deal, most外围体育投注 religions cover nefarious activity via being protected legally.

The catholic church has been covering child molestation long before Tom Cruise even took his first personality test for them.

People engage in century long wars over religion

Oh, check out what has been legally approved to practice in the

The reason Hollywood can't do anything about isn't because its linked to famous people (as you suggested), it's because they're federally protected.

外围体育投注Scientology is a tax-dodge. "Donations" to a church are tax deductible. But, the *BENEFITS* a church chooses to bestow upon a person(s) is *not* income. So, you could *very* easily use a church to launder money. AND, you can say, exchange gifts for benefits; I'd give you $20,000 and you (church) provide a 4 week carribean island retreat at your "rest facility".

It's a fucking tax scam (not to mention it's really a merch business.)

Abolish Freedom of Religion in the USA.

外围体育投注It’s honestly the fault of the IRS caving to them and granting religious org status. Remove this, and the FBI has more standing to confront them as the cult they are. As it stands, Scientology can continue to hide behind religious protections to hide their knowledge of crimes; such as those of which Masterson is accused.

I mean they purposefully infiltrated the IRS until they got what they wanted...

It's also hard to do one's job when every year new laws come out, but the budget gets cut again.
