A Sneak Peek at Scientology's Ideal Org in Orange County, Whenever it Opens

Tony Ortega, editor of our sister paper, Village Voice, recently published an article featuring three mailers from the Church of Scientology, in which the movement promotes its efforts, and primes members to fork over money for the cause. 

Lucky for us, one mailer promoted a conference in Los Angeles last weekend focused on making California an "Ideal state", with photos of Ideal Orgs, including the future Orange County one at Sycamore and Fifth streets at the former Santa Ana Performing Arts and Event Center.

Now, the folks at Whyweprotest.net have taken some up-close photos of what the Orange County site looks like. Here's one:

We assume the church has paid its water bill, but at this rate, some members of the Sea Org might finish their billion-year contracts before the new Ideal Org is complete.

I emailed church spokeswoman, Karin Pouw, to find out the time frame for the grand opening.

"Nothing final yet," she said.

I find it truly mind-boggling that any sane, intelligent people would continue to fall (very expensively) for the patently ridiculous scientology line and all the fables sprouted by that OTHER Lord of Lies, David Miscarriage. These scientology characters are truly evil and it is incredible that there is no serious official investigation into them under way in the US.

You know, it's a shame that, every time I see Scientology promo for this area, the lies stand out. Look at the bottom right picture. What's that it says? San Diego?

But, that's not a picture of the San Diego Ideal Org, it's the regular org downtown at 4th and Ash.San Diego doesn't HAVE an Ideal Org! They bought the property for $9 million, with a little help from Miscavige's pet richies, the Dugganses. But they couldn't afford to renovate, or raze, or maintain the property, or the taxes.  It's back on the market, they're trying to recoup what they paid for it.

To reiterate: San Diego has no Ideal Org, and the building pictured is their regular org (which is also for sale, btw)

 d E-meterwarning was published in Federal food, drug, and cosmetic act:judicial and administrative record, 1969-1974, 1969-1974 FDCAJud. Rec. (FDLI) 90 (D.D.C. 1971) and 1969-1974 FDCA Jud. Rec. (FDLI)131 (D.C. Cir. 1973).

E-meters are assembled at "Gold Base",Scientology's armed compound in Hemet, California.

The St. Petersburg Times reportsit takes only 80 minutes to put one together, as the technician shownat left is doing. Apparantly they cost about 60 $ to make, great profit hey

It is very amusing! These insane Scientology criminals are trying hard to pretend that they still have customers. They have at most some 40,000 remaining customers world wide and as Tony noted at the Village Voice, the number of Scientology ringleaders and crime bosses that are currently facing indictments and prison terms is eventually going to help eliminate the Scientology crime syndicate once and for all.

I hope all the Idle Orgs are retrofitted with Oiliness Stations. It would be nice to be able to oil your Thetan without having to go to the Mecca of Oiliness.

I wonder what Operating Thetan level you have to be at in order to learn the secrets of spelling. The word is "attendance"—not "attendence" as it says on their flyer.

Josh, you woke Karin out of a sound sleep and made Osumanti cry, I hope you feel better now. Actually, the Orange County Ideal Org is going to be the new site of the Hole that does not exist. David Miscavige is moving his RFP from Gold Base to Orange County. His slave labor will get that building into ideal order in no time at all. Around the clock, 24/7 until the job is done. Half rations of slop for the shirkers and no sleep for everyone. Besides, as long as there's a Scientologist with Photoshop, the cult members will see a complete Ideal Org.

"Ideal Orgs" are really "Idle Morgues," or empty real estate purchased by aggressive fund raising targeting the few remaining scientologists.

OCWeekly, that is the most well written, professionally responsible, well researched, detailed and objective article I've seen in a while. Not. You're bullies. That's all you are. I truly hope grow out of it one day and build, rather than destroy.

I am ready just needed to know it was you all the time. Orange county is a nice place, lot of loser move down there.....nice place to live ....lot people go there after they have worked so hard,....and then have to give it all away...but then they have smart people educated to taken care of them like doctors who dont know how to treat people. Everything is traceables even herbies

 It's cute that you think all those buildings are genuine Ideal Orgs. At least one isn't. Do you know which one they're lying about?

Its not like Scientogy pushes a method of teaching that emphasizes looking things up in dictionaries or anything.

That's strange, for some reason you could not point to anything in the article that was mistaken. Apparently you have an MU you need to clear with an E-Meter. Go pick up the cans and scrape off a few more invisible murdered space alien Body Thetans and then get back to us when you've blown those charges. Thanks!

OC would have to work pretty hard to destroy something, to do it as well as scientology destroys families.  Google disconnection.

Hi Louanne, how's your spring going?

 Pointing out falsehoods being passed as facts is hardly "destroy".In fact you should be grateful that someone is highlighting the outpoints that you obviously can't see.
