sCIENTOLOGY's digs IS LAP OF LUXURY

Purification saunas, touch therapy beds and exercise machines. It might sound like a description for a nice spa weekend but it's really the inside of the Church of Scientology's newly refurbished $14m headquarters in Sydney.

More than 2,500 people attended its recent opening which was performed by church leader David Miscavige.

But where does the money come from? The premises includes a 'Hall of Fame' honour roll listing names of followers according to how much money they have donated.

Donating $1m gives a person the status of 'New Civilisation Builder', while coughing up half a million are 'gold humanitarians'.
