I don’t know Pat Harney, except for what I have seen and heard from youtube. To me, she seems like a nice lady who has been brainwashed like the rest of the heavily indoctrinated scientologists. She has lost touch with reality. However, she also has a specific job to fill within the cult and she is doing just that. She is not very effective at her job IMHO.
I would say that about most Scientologists. there’s no reason to not believe they are nice, decent people. But how do you possibly do Scientology PR well? It’s a no-win situation. You have to lie, spin and divert because the truth isn’t pretty.
Vaughn Young was the only good PR person they’ve ever had.
I remember some PR thing where Scientology was promoting Pat as a successful ‘African-American’, or whatever. I always assumed she was just their PR replacement for Jesse Prince. Technically, black people being given high positions in Scientology would be squirreling, as L. Ron Hubbard said that they are “impossible to train”. Jesse claims to have been verbally assaulted with racism by COB Miscavige, so I wonder if the same happens with Pat.
