    Add writer Neil Gaiman to the celebrity Scientology list. Neil Gaiman was a class VIII auditor and Executive Director of the Birmingham Org. He was a Case Supervisor at the Guardian Office. In 1983 Neil Gaiman is supposedly declared "suppressive" but in 1988, FIVE YEARS AFTER THE DECLARE, Neil’s name appears in graduate lists in The Auditor Worldwide as completing three courses. His family members are heavy-weight Scientologists; father David Gaiman was head of the Guardian Office and is active in Russia, sister Claire Edwards is an executive in Scientology Missions International (recruiting end of Scieno), wife Mary Gaiman is listed as "clear" in 2002, Mother Sheila Gaiman is a big time Scientologist with her own site and is also active in Russia. Other sister Lizzie Calcione “runs a Scientology practice in East Grinstead , that is a mixture of auditing and WISE delivery.” The Gaiman Family are listed as founding US "Patrons" of Scientology for 2004 & 2006 so they donate large amounts of money to "clear the planet." According to Celebrity Scientology blog-writer Grahame when asked about Neil’s scientology current status: "My answer is that I heard from a close relative of his that he (Neil Gaiman) is taking services at Flag."

    CORNERSTONE CLUB MEMBERS [1315] [$35,000.00]
    Mary & Neil Gaiman
    Scientology newsletters only list members in good standing. Those who have left the Church or been declared Suppressive, which would be Neil Gaiman's status if he had left, would never be listed.
