Wow, I just skimmed through my inbox and – what a day – so much exciting things have been happening recently. The first Ideal Church of Scientology in Russia (we’ll talk about that later), Katie finally slamming those media leaches for their continuous false reports, some news from recent “ex-ex-Scientologists” and other ex’es. It’s wild! So I updated ScientologyMyths.info for you and hope you can use the information.
Now the most important news: last weekend a new Church of Scientology opened in Moscow. Wow, first they won one court case after the other and now – bang! – a huge new Church right in the main district of Moscow. Well done, or “хорошо сделано!”, to the Russian Scientologists for making this happen! I hope to see more photos and videos soon! Here are some I found on Facebook:
This is the 12th or so Ideal Scientology Organization that opened its doors in the last 12 months. Assuming that this blog is not only read by Scientologists I should explain what this means. An Ideal Organization – the term comes from a policy letter of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard – is a Church of Scientology able to deliver all services of Scientology, including social services, lectures, events, auditing, everything a Church of Scientology does. That means it needs to be big enough, it needs to have enough staff – and trained ones – and most importantly it needs to be representative for what Scientology is: the path to total freedom. A little dinky building in dire need of a paint job wouldn’t cut it to represent that, right? So there is a lot of effort going on in Scientology to create Ideal Organizations. The whole campaign started in 2004 and has gained a lot of speed since. It’s exciting and gets everyone on board. Parishioners are coming together all over the world to renovate their place or find a new one, they raise funds, join staff, and do everything needed to build their new Church.
I can attest to a big difference between an Ideal Church of Scientology and a rather random one. The latter can be an introduction to Scientology and certainly most Scientologists today have started in one. Better to have a Church building, bookstore etc than not. But it’s only after its metamorphosis into an Ideal Church of Scientology that I truly felt at home in my Church. And I know this is true for many others who have been part of creating their own Ideal Church of Scientology.
I also heard that there will be two more new Churches to open this month and a dozen more this year. Keep them coming!
