It's hard to tell. Scientology hides itself behind a rather large crowd of unobviously named corporations, associations, and committees, so it's hard to judge exactly what they are up to. They obviously have enough funds at the moment to spend huge amounts of money in attempts to libel Time Magazine, but as to their membership or their leadership, nobody (besides the church, and it won't talk much, and when it does its figures are usually inflated or deflated grossly, depending on the image they are trying to portray) really knows.
