Signing on to Scientology: New Logos Up at Santa Ana Landmark

ScientologySign.jpg
With the Ideal Org's opening day less than two weeks away, Scientology Orange County has officially marked its territory in downtown Santa Ana.

Take a gander at the sign above the entrance, one of many L. Ron Hubbard-tastic emblems that adorn the former Santa Ana Performing Arts and Event Center at Sycamore and Fifth streets. LOVE the font! Is it the debut of Xenu Diggers of '33?

It was Hubbard who said Ideal orgs are "islands of sanity, expanding, spreading help and calming the environment until we can truly call this a Golden Age again."

A bookstore is located in a first-floor corner spot, where one can peek through the window and get a glimpse of a couple of Hubbard books on a shelf. From the outside, I couldn't tell where the auditing holes will be located.

Can't wait to get my personality tested!

Damn, damn, damn - if only they had scheduled this opening while I was in town a week ago!  I would love to attend, although I am willing to bet they would not allow my cameras inside.  I once took at picture of these folks at Santa Ana's Fiestas Patrias and they were quite hostile, with one woman attempting to explain to me how what I was doing - taking her picture as she stood in the middle of Fourth Street in full and open view - was a criminal act. 

Well, St. Joseph Church is getting a new pastor, the present one heading off to mentor seminarians - will the new guy be the type to make sure Scientology doesn't come after his flock (especially the youth)?

If they can only get more buildings like this up, then people won't look on the Internet for what Scientologists really believe and do -- like talking to ashtrays and sucking enormous amounts of money out of gullible people.

They could start using people's private homes as dissemination centers. Garages are good for storing pods. The Golden Age of a clear planet is approaching rapidly on Teegeeack now that the people of Orange County will become the people the world obeys.

I look forward to attending their Sunday services.  Nothing like a good church service on a Sunday!  I love the sermons, the prayers, and all the hymns.

Looking forward to the OCeeker's review of the "Church" of Scientology.

Studies have shown that the presence of cannabis dispensaries lowers the crime rate in the surrounding area. Security, perhaps?

Police logs have shown that Scientology calls 911 more than any other entity in their area, including rowdy London pubs. So if their presence raises the tone of a neighborhood to where you don't need to lock your doors or cars because everyone is firing the theta, how come all the emergency police calls? Shouldn't everything in their sector be STRAC, yar, shipshape? Wouldn't the bums pick up litter instead of dropping it? Kids painting out grafitti rather than applying it?

That's the fantasy they use to get their true believers to take out one more mortgage, sign over retirement funds, what have you got? They'll take it, regardless of whether or not it's in YOUR best interest. Retirement funds meant to support you in your graybeard years, if they can weasel it out of you, they will! Greater good and all that, doncha know. Sorry you're living under a bridge now.
