Photos from Inside the Moscow Ideal Org

Post by Simonymous » Wed May 18, 2011 10:53 am

Photographs and commentary from the new Ideal Org in Moscow. (Links are safe, not owned by Scientology.)

In Russian only. The text is somewhat pro-cult, it reads like advertising. There is no real mention of controversy, but there are over 1,500 comments, and generally all are against the cult.

Translated version.

If this link doesn't work, you can plug the above one into Google and get the same.
“...the injuries that {Hubbard} handled by the use of Dianetics procedures were never handled, because they were injuries that never existed; therefore, Dianetics is based on a lie; therefore, Scientology is based on a lie.” --Tommy Davis

There is no "S" in the Russian alphabet; The letter "C" is for the ess sound. So, the big S on top of the triangles looks foreign to the Russians. Imagine being in an English speaking country and seeing a religious symbol with a Russian Ж on top of triangles - that's their symbol for Z. You'd think: foreign religion.

Couldn't even find enough clams to fill the course room for a photo op. That place must be dead!

From inside an unrelated Irish Times article (10th August 2011)....

"Remnants of Soviet days blend with new Moscow of the big-wigs"
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/wor ... 81495.html
In 1991, before a failed coup d’état hastened the USSR’s demise, The Irish Times office was situated in what may have been the worst building in all the Russias. This hideous construction still stands overlooking the sprawling Taganskaya Square.

Appalling from the exterior, it was every bit as bad inside.

Screams could at times be heard from those trapped in lifts stuck between floors. When one lived on the 17th floor, however, there was little option but to ascend or descend in hope rather than confidence. In my time, as dusk fell the rats cascaded on to the streets from a derelict house. Now the rat-infested building has been replaced by the Moscow Church of Scientology.
I c wat they did thar.

LOL, so no change there then.
