Note: there was no Graduation last nite due to a special Sea Org only event “for SO Day” but I bet Voldemort was just not feeling in the mood after his weekus horribilus. So. instead we have some news from across the country.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars and a year after the OC “Ideal Org” finally opened, their Non E campaign is off the ground.
And boy, the news is amazing!
They got a donation from someone in NEW YORK.
They put up billboards around Disneyland (stupidest place ever — the people at Disney are TOURISTS, NOT their public) and, wait for it, as they saved the really big news for last….
ONE woman started an Intro service and A TOW TRUCK DRIVER stopped in to tell them he was “so glad they were here.”
Now that is real bang for the buck…. And that is what they think is “a big win.”
This is one of Pinocchio Pouw’s “you missed the real story, we are expanding like crazy — we opened 37 NEW churches in the last few years.” Funny, not a single one of them is actually expanding. And Orange County isn’t just “one” of the 37 — this county is home to a very large percentage of the total active Scientologists on the planet (probably ONLY exceeded by Pinellas County in Florida). And here we have this amazing “Ideal Org” “clearing its zone” with donations from someone in NY and a tow truck driver who stops by to say hi. There is nothing inherently wrong with either, except the OMISSION they highlight.
This is the BEST THEY HAVE TO PROMOTE. That’s not much for $10 million plus.
And truthfully, the only thing that is on fire is Pinocchio’s pants.
Mike and Betsy Reppen happened to swing by the booming OC Ideal Org yesterday and snapped a couple of shots. They put them on Facebook and I am adding them here. As you can see, it is a real hive of activity on a weekday afternoon.
