Apparently, as the existing graffiti is removed from the Seattle Ideal Org, more is added.  Claire Swazey, a former scientology organization member, has posted some new pictures (click photos at the link for larger versions): http://seattleidealorgderelict.blogspot.com/

I like Wieber's comment on church mission centers going under...
"The first thing that goes is the extremities."

I am a volunteer advocate for victims of the Narconon scam. I am a former scientologist. I post anonymously. Mary McConnell is my long time nom de plume. Feel free to contact me for assistance in righting the wrongs.

Dear Lorelei,

Good work on the Life Center of Jax. Pretty creepy that he followed you too. Ive found that the site is now closed, the owner's name and the disollution of their corporate ID online. Best of all, I found a realtor;s walkthrough of the office before they cleared it out just for your enjoyment:

Enjoy.



MORE lovely Sci-owned properties!

What's this? This is the Mission of Belleair in Belleair, Florida. See, David Miscavige's sister Denise Miscavige Gentile for some reason needed her own mission instead of keeping $cientology working at Flag or some other place where hoi polloi congregate.

Denise Miscavige Gentile keeps $cientology working at the illustrious Mission of Belleair on West Bay in Belleair, Florida.

As you can see from this first picture, Scientology is very proud of the Mission of Belleair.



"Where's the f---ing mission?" you ask? See the pink box right next to JP Nails? That's the Mission of Belleair signage! The blue box is their entrance. The yellow line is where you can walk all the way through and you can park around back. They're a little more proud of their signage around back as you can see in this picture:



Skeery black hole leads to Mission. Has a "run for your life" vibe, huh?

Of course, the back is also where all the poorer $cilons park their beater vehicles.

That place is DEAD. I go by there several times a week and the place is empty. The mission itself is upstairs, over the nail salon or whatever in in there. There is someone working there who drives a scooter. Otherwise there can't be more than about two people in there and I have never seen a single customer go in.

Jacksonville, FL
A "Life Improvement Center" run by Scientology.

Well I held my word and went ahead and drove to the closest sci/dianetics establishment. I anticipated a pretty uneventful photo shoot. Getting there was a bitch to start off with. I expected a rather large multi-story office-type building with at least something saying Scientology on it. The place was in a multipex of small offices with a dozen other insurance service one-story buildings.

When I finally arrived I proceeded with the shoot. A few wide, close, and long. The area was dead, but clean and well-kept. Parking lot empty aside from the 2 or 3 cars and not a soul in sight. After about my third or fourth shot, I noticed a couple people to my left in the distant, at the entrance of another office. A man and woman, it was, who were standing there looking at me. I ignored it and continued. And the end of it, I headed back to my car - at about the same time the man, woman, and someone else did. Three cars were heading out of the parking lot. The first two cars passed me, while parked, with no issue. The third car, as you'll see in the picture, did the full stare as he slowly rolled in front of me to stop. Waited. Stared. And reversed. I waited. Then decided to just head out of there. As I pulled away the guy was right on me. He followed me for about 3 miles. Kinda freaky. I tried to get a good shot of him, but this just wasn't possible. We both stopped at a light, side-by-side, and he went left and I went my right. I managed to take a picture before he finally drove away.

In the end, the pictures don't really deliver but the incident was from left field. I don't know if he was in on something or if he just wanted to find out what I was doing there.







Wow. A young girl being stalked by some sketchy older guy just because she took pictures of a supposedly public building on a public street. That's not creepy AT ALL...amirite? /sarcasm

There's nothing on the site specifically stating that it is a Scientology-related building, but the Dianetics and "overcoming suppression" is too much for me to ignore.

I decided to call this building today, and ask for myself. Unfortunately, I don't own a camera at the moment so I couldn't record. When I asked if this life center was involved in Scientology, I was immediately hung up on. When I tried to call back my calls were ignored.

Keep in mind the Jacksonville is a fairly big city, which as we all know is where the Scilons love to spring up.

NOTE: The front groups DO NOT like being asked directly if they are Scientology front groups. The whole POINT is that they are supposed to sneak in under the RADAR (that most normal people have that goes off with warning beeps when "Scientology" or "cult"is mentioned). Let this be a warning, if you decide to ask direct questions yourself.

Hi youseenothing, and welcome.  I think Lorelei was quoting someone else who was followed:
https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/needed-picts-of-orgs.38666/page-3#post-821338

But it was interesting to see the realtor's photos.  Thanks for posting the link to them.
