L. Ron Hubbard’s vile nicotine-and-tar-stained lower teeth can be clearly seen in an interview Scientology’s Founder granted an interviewer from Granada Television in 1967.
In the latest edition of Flag Land Base’s Source magazine, L. Ron Hubbard’s teeth have been posthumously cleaned to a glistening pearly white shine.
This is yet another Scientology lie:
The above photoshopped image of L. Ron Hubbard was mailed out to tens of thousands of people by the Church of Scientology International. The magazine was sent by bulk mail permit and was sent whether or not the recipients wanted to receive the magazine.
We are posting the doctored LRH photo here and elsewhere under the Fair Use doctrine to show the public the premeditated and deliberate fraud in which the Church of Scientology has engaged in by altering an historical photograph of their Founder.
This doctored photo is evidentiary in nature and goes to a pattern of fraud. Specifically, people who are thinking about joining Scientology could be deceived by this photo which shows the Founder as having good dental hygiene. Conversely, if these same people saw the actual decayed and rotting teeth of the Founder they may have considerations, e.g. Hubbard specifically called for people to “preserve your teeth” in his The Way to Happiness booklet. Hubbard did not practice what he preached.
This hypocrisy on Hubbard’s part could influence people to not participate in an organization which lied to them by using a doctored photo as part of a fraudulent inducement to join.
The Church of Scientology International’s failure to disclose the doctored photo speaks to its continuing pattern of fraud and deception.
