South Africa -- Scientology Victory

Today's story in IOL.co.za is a big dear for Church of Scientology in South Africa!

A tax exemption has been awarded to the SA Church of Scientology by the SA Revenue Services (SARS), the Church said on Tuesday.

"We are ecstatic, this is a memorable and historic day for us as it provides us with an even better opportunity to serve our community and scientologists," said President of the Church, Ryan Hogarth.
He said that SARS issued the Church with a certificate on Monday approving its status as a 'Public Benefit Organisation'. "

This was after 42 years and 26 applications to the South African Revenue Service," Hogarth said.

He said the approval followed similar recognition in countries such as Sweden, Germany, Spain, and New Zealand, as well the European Court of Human Rights.

What a win for David Miscavige and everyone else who came to the grand opening of the Jo'burg church four years ago!

"Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today, and you make your tomorrow." — Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard

Wow, things are changing! Recently I watched a Morning Television show about Scientology and the comments were ALL positive. People are actually starting to look and think for themselves and this is showing up more and more.
