Well, they can't laugh at their idiot followers because the people in that building who are taking courses *are* the followers. So as previously mentioned, they take courses and so forth. I have many many reservations and critiques of the Church of Scientology, but, on the other hand, if someone wants to take courses in something he or she finds interesting, I'm not going to fault that, nor am I going to mock the person for that. And I can also point out that if they're doing those services as part of the Church's Flag Land base, they're being overcharged. All Scientologists are overcharged because the pricing in the cult is insane, but Flag charges far more for the same services that one can get at local CofS organizations and missions. The members are ripped off and lied to. So any enjoyment or succor they derive from taking the courses or receiving counselling is counteracted by the pressures the cult puts upon them.
