Photo Update: Georgia - Atlanta Ideal Org
« on: November 19, 2014, 20:51 »
A friend of the forum sent some photos to me at Facebook to share here if I wanted them for the forum. He took these when he drove by the Church of Scientology of Georgia Ideal Org today. They speak for themselves!

He had posted this on Facebook:

Quote
Given how much effort the "church" of $cientology spends hiding Travolta and Cruise's love of men, you'd think they'd have picked someone other than GAY construction to renovate their Sandy Springs facility.



Here are rest of what he sent me. Although there is some kind of construction work going on, the place is still in terrible shape... all these years and this is all they managed to accomplish. Here are some other pics:



















He said  "I hope this is the beginning of them going bankrupt."

Me, too!

Photos of a Fundraising flyer sent out recently, which was posted at The Bunker. Notice anyone familiar? Hehe!

I wonder how much $$O$$ this same group has donated over the years. How many are over their heads in debt?



A re-run from the Ask the Scientologist blog - Scientologists Have You Been Scammed? 

A few blogposts from Mike Rinder on the Idle Org scam - http://www.mikerindersblog.org/sunday-redux-the-big-ideal-org-lie/

Thanks for the pics, Mary.

What's with the "DEMO" signs in the pics? I thought they were renovating, not tearing down.

I have no idea... my first thought was, in seeing the papers posted on on one, in one of the shots, was that it was an out of the course room type 'demo' of the job they are doing.

A Scientology study tech term for the process of demonstration used in training students.  There are demo kits, and  'clay demos' . These are supposed to add 'mass' to theory. To demonstrate theory.

But it's probably just a bin for demolition remains. In the Sea Org entry process called Estates Project Force, one of the tasks a worker does, if needed, is demolition, which includes taking down walls with sledge hammers. I, myself, did such work for a brief period of time before I got smart and found a way out of my billion year contract

The building is being gutted. Hence the "demo" as in demolition! The building has been unoccupied since 2005 with the exception of small photo op events put on by the local scientologists within the building's main entry way which has a spiral staircase that is part of the building original structure.

Hopefully state/local safety folks are making sure no untrained Sea Ogres with improper safety equipment are "assisting" the real contractors. Hate to see anyone get hurt doing work they're not qualified to be doing.

Is Mary Reiser still involved in the local OT Committee?  Inquiring minds want to know.

She was in a video (slideshow) posted at the Bunker promoting the Atlanta Org contest. She may have been shooped in.

Mary - I don't know the date of this event either, but Tony posted the video Aug. 28, 2014.
Here is the screenshot of Reiser:

That ceiling! I wish we knew where this picture was taken; if the new org still looks like this, somebody there must be wondering where all their donations have gone. And if this is the Winter's Chapel org it is likely a good thing to keep the public away! I certainly wouldn't be inclined to put my trust people who claimed to be able to give me superpowers, but couldn't fix the ceiling in their own church, would you? Those panels don't cost much, and the only tool you need to change them out is a stepladder!

'til next time!

Ain't that the truth!

Mary is later pictured in the video with short hair at 5:42. I think both stills of her are from a much earlier time period.

That ceiling in the picture looks like it's in someones basement that's way over due for remodeling.

So that's what they did! They went back in time to get pictures of a room full of Scientologists.
