January 2, 2022 fire tore through the parliament complex in Cape Town, South Africa destroying some of the historic buildings.
According to a dramatic retelling of the event on Facebook by Scientology Volunteer Ministers they “assisted with a large fire in South Africa’s parliament complex located in Cape Town.”
One can almost hear the theme from Mission Impossible as the sensational photographs flash across the screen.
Incredibly, untrained civilians entered the danger zone as they; “…quickly assembled and went into the blazing heat to provide assistance to the brave Firefighters as they battled to extinguish the fire which broke out in the parliament complex’s oldest wing.”
Such dedication and bravery!
Ignoring the strange mental image of unprotected, yellow shirted Scientologists rushing into the blaze, handing out water bottles to fully suited firemen as they battle flames and smoke, one marvels at the humanitarian selflessness.
As an aside, what food is appropriate for distribution to busy firefighters during an arson threatening to destroy an entire complex? One imagines hors d’oeuvres too small for the gloves while sandwiches seem a bit casual, but we digress.
In the name of clarity we reached out to Cape Town Fire Department asking about allowing untrained civilians into a danger zone.
Sadly it would seem that once again Scientology is intentionally misleading their readers.
The danger, excitement and drama they portrayed…
Thus we begin 2022 with business as usual for Scientology.
