Why would anyone in their right mind want to enter a scientology propaganda center, let alone during a pandemic?
This “Scientology Information Center” is in the lobby of the old Clearwater Bank building. It is the ONLY scientology “church” building you can walk into off the street in Clearwater. You cannot enter the Ft Harrison hotel, the Super Power building, the Sandcastle, Oak Cove, Osceola, West Coast, old Lee Arnold building, Coachman or any of the other buildings scientology owns in Clearwater, despite their claim of being “open” to the community.
The ONLY building you are allowed into is this lobby (and the other front group organizations Potemkin Village along N. Ft. Harrison).
If you do mistakenly cross the threshhold of the Scientology Information Center (“SIC”) you will be bombarded with propaganda about the great work of scientology in the community, videos of “Ideal Orgs” (though they are all empty) to “prove” the popularity and expansion of scientology and videos of the “humanitarian programs” that are pure smoke and mirrors photo ops. If you express any interest in Hubbard’s “technology” at all at all, you will be sent to either the Bellaire “ideal” mission or the Tampa “ideal” org to become the latest “raw meat” to be fed into the fundraising meat grinder.
Scientology is promoting the “good work” they are doing to combat COVID-19. Even their own propaganda tells people to maintain social distancing. The best social distancing is to not be in the same space as someone else. Yet, scientology is violating their own advice to try to convince people to come in to find out about the advice to stay out.
The illogic of this is scientology at its essence. They cannot help themselves. The woman who runs the SIC has a statistic (probably, number of people successfully toured) and she is a “downstat” and it is expected that she do anything possible to “get her stats up.”
The best advice they have ever given concerning scientology is: keep your distance!
Here is what they have to say from their “Stay Well” website.
