Harlem gets its Scientology 'Ideal Org' today, and David Miscavige doesn't want you there - 2016-07-31
It's time again for Rod Keller's Scientology Social Media Review. He's made a specialty of hunting down the odd and wonderful things Scientologists post to the 'net. He's a chronicler who piece by piece builds a highly detailed assessment of what Scientology is doing around the world, and this is what he found for us this week...
Today at 1 pm, Harlem will get its own Scientology Ideal Org when church leader David Miscavige presides over a ceremony at the twin buildings on 125th St. We say "twin" because Scientology is not only opening its Ideal Org but also a community center two doors down on 125th between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. This project is a long time coming — the buildings were purchased way back in 2007, and Scientology has been talking about opening them for years. If this event is like other Ideal Org events, Scientologists will be flown in from around the country, but curious local onlookers will be kept far away with the use of closed streets and sidewalks, barriers made up of potted plants, and other techniques.
We'll be interested to see which local figures Miscavige manages to convince to speak at the event. If you happen to be in the area, please send us a photo or two.
