If there is one thing that the shrinking cult of Scientology does not need it is more buildings. Since membership has been in decline for many years now the existing premises are more than sufficient to hold whatever amount of publics that can be dragged to events.
But the myth that the Scientology is growing and gaining in its influence is too important to neglect. So opening new “Idea Orgs has an important morale meaning to their membership. Also, it would reflect poorly on the leadership abilities of David Miscavige to admit that they are indeed, shrinking in numbers.
But there is another item that seems to fly under the radar of the unsuspecting gullible members and that is that Scientology management always gets a slice of the action. This happens everywhere but the most notable example is the “Super Power” building in Clearwater where they collected tens of millions of dollars beyond construction costs that went right into the coffers of Scientology.
Today’s “Ideal Org,” is to be found in the California city of Stephens Creek. Once again the Scientology PR department paints a nice picture of the building that the public will rush to in order to get at L. Ron Hubbard’s “tech.” Below, the Stephens Creek org as shown by Scientology.
This insignificant building is more than big enough to handle any influx of new members. Actually a WWII army surplus pup tent would be big enough to hold their new members. More than likely this building will languish on for a time until at last it runs out of money to pay the taxes or the utilities. We have seen this happen too many times in the past to think that this case will be any different.
Regardless of the eventual fate of this new empty building it did serve a purpose in allowing cult members to use their wonderful tech of subterfuge. Scientologists can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to lies and misrepresentation. Not since the day of the old USSR were photographs ever manipulated as often and as shamelessly as this.
Do we have more examples of Scientology picture “tech?” Yes we do, behold:
The Incredible Shrinking Board!!
Narconon is a Scientology front group (hidden behind yet another front group) that delivers a fake drug rehabilitation program based on the teachings of the famous lunatic L. Ron Hubbard. They claim to be separate from Scientology but they get their marching orders from David Miscavige just as all Scientologists do. Just like the lying thieves of the parent group Scientology; they are not about photoshopping pictures.l
