Use of U.S. State Department Seal (the U.S. Great Seal) and Other Official Insignia
U.S. State Department seals (the U.S. Great Seal), logos and other official insignia may not be used or reproduced without written permission. Use of the Great Seal of the United States is governed by Public Law 91-651, Title 18 of the United States Code. This is a criminal statute with penal provisions, prohibiting certain uses of the Great Seal that would convey or reasonably be calculated to convey a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof.

Although the Secretary of State is custodian of the Seal, the Department of State has no authority to grant or withhold permission for use of reproductions, facsimiles, or likenesses of the Seal, or any part thereof. It depends on the circumstances in each case whether the particular use of the Seal would be improper and, as such, it is a function of the Department of Justice to determine whether any particular use violates the Statute. Consequently, the Department of State's policy has been to discourage use of the Great Seal, except when used for governmental or educational purposes, and the Department does not provide artwork for its use other than for official State Department material.

The Grand Opening of the Founding Church in the American Capital

IT'S A GIFT FROM THE IAS and bestowed on behalf of every member of the IAS. Of course, their contributions came with full knowledge of what this nation's capital means to the world." Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center

October 31, 2009 was a day that will be remembered as an extraordinary moment in Scientology history: the Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new IAS-sponsored Ideal Organization and Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, DC.

Located just six blocks from the White House in the historic Embassy Building on Embassy Row, it not only serves as the new home of the Founding Church, but completes a triad of addresses in DuPont Circle as it joins the original Founding Church premises on 19th Street NW that now stand as a preservation landmark in honor of LRH and the landmark Fraser Mansion which •will soon serve as the National Office for the Church of Scientology. Leaders from the local community and national government welcomed the Church to its new premises. They spoke of their close relationship with the Church and their strong desire to continue working together with Scientologists in disaster relief and recovery efforts, rehabilitating criminals and creating respect for human rights.

Scientologists were deeply honored to have the Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center, Mr. David Miscavige, attend the Grand Opening and deliver a personal address. He cited LRH milestones
in connection with Washington, DC— from LRH's distinction as America's youngest Eagle Scout to his studies at George Washington University and from his authoring of Dianetics: The Original Thesis to his establishment of our first Church of Scientology in 1955.

Next, speaking of all we do to uplift this civilization, Mr. Miscavige detailed the worldwide expansion of the many IAS-sponsored social betterment programs and Fourth Dynamic campaigns. Referring to the fact that IAS grants funded this new Ideal Org, he said, "It's a gift from the IAS and bestowed on behalf of every member of the IAS. Of course, their contributions came with full knowledge of what this nation's capital means to the world. So, no, you don't 'owe' every member of the IAS who made this day possible. But, on the other hand, you certainly now 'owe' Washington, DC. Which is to say: Instill respect for human rights on the Hill up there or pass The Way to Happiness to your neighbors down the block—and who knows how far the ripples will roll from there."

Acknowledging our Founder, Mr. Miscavige and the distinguished guests cut the ribbon and officially opened wide the doors. At which point thousands were invited in to see their new Ideal Org firsthand.

[Image captions: Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board RTC and the Grand Opening guest speakers cut the ribbon, officially opening the new home of the Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, DC. (pp. 36-37.)

(Left) Thousands poured into the org when the doors opened, passing through the multilingual Public Bookstore located right off Reception (top). Many watched videos on one of the IAS-sponsored campaigns in the Public Information Center (above) (p. 39).]


The Grand Opening of the Founding Church in the American Capital, (2010). Impact 123, 36-39.

Miscavige charging Scientologists with instilling respect for human rights on Capital Hill is like Bernie Madoff getting his employees out putting in the SEC's ethics and doing its job stopping ponzi schemers. Scientologists handing out Way to Happiness booklets is like OJ handing out flyers to find his wife's killer. Miscavige is about as moral as any sociopath you'd ever hope to meet.

btw, Caroline, I started a thread on WWP on this using some of your posts
http://forums.whyweprotest.net/291-scie ... seal-65518

Why are they putting "guest speakers" in their magazines without listing who they are? Have the guests since removed their approval or is it that they don't want their crap to go rapidly out of date when the shit hits the fan in the media?

The guy on the far right of the cult PR brochure is US Rep. Brad Sherman

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/reliab ... logy4.html
Did the cult feel they somehow had the right to put the US Great Seal on their plastic stage furniture because they bagged some idiot US Rep duped into flapping his jaw for them for a couple of minutes? I don't think it quite works like that.

I don't believe that the Cult of Scientology has any fealty to this or any other government. It is really at war with the rest of us. I'm no hyperpatriot (ala Coulter/Palin) but I will always view Operation Snow White as the act of traitors set into motion by a founder who had a score to settle with his own government.

The Cult's casual usage of the Great Seal is just more evidence of the contempt that it harbors for this and other Wog nations.

To me, Scientology's use of the Great Seal definitely conveys an impression of sponsorship or approval of Dianetics, Scientology, the corporate entities, Hubbard and Miscavige by the Government of the United States or some department, agency, or instrumentality thereof. That impression could be false, meaning that neither the Government of the United States nor any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof sponsored nor approved of Miscavige, et al. Or it could be an accurate impression, and the US Government really does support or approve of the cult, and signaled it with use of the Great Seal's approval.

It's well known that
Miscavige, et al. used the official Olympic torch symbol and even the official Olympic Flame pixels without permission to promote the Way to Happiness Foundation, which is, of course, a "feeder" line into Scientology's money-making "services." Nevertheless, I cannot believe, that Miscavige, though he's doubtlessly a sociopath, would be so brazen as to use the Great Seal without permission. Therefore my impression is that the US Federal Government does officially sponsor or approve of Miscavige and the whole deceptive and destructive cult, and that sponsorship or approval is wrong and should be protested.

If my impression is correct, that would signal that the State Department did not discourage Miscavige, et al. from using the Great Seal. I think the State Department is actually encouraging use of the Great Seal just by not discouraging Scientology's use, because such usage generates so many photoshopportunties.

Lol, yeah, Operation Snow White...... Oh the irony. Stealing US Government dox then, years later, stealing & wearing the US Great Seal, stealing from the tax payer with the IRS sweet deal (ok the government was beaten into submission on that one), then we go further back into Hubbard's dirty laundry and find his stolen valor, followed by his fake academic qualificaitonsand you have quite a rich history of federal theft for any news media outlet who wants to expand on this story of the cult of scientology's perpetual grand larceny of fake legtimacy.

Btw, Here is the offcial cult video clips of the D.C. Ideal Org opening where you can seethe US Great Seal as the dwarf speaks (please have a sick bag handy and remove all throwable objects from your immediate vicinty before watching).

^I meant to type "see the" but yeah, "seethe" is fitting also. :).


Some more official info:

The Great Seal of the United States
U.S. Deptpartment of State
Bureau of Public Affairs
http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/27807.pdf
Doc page 13 (pdf page 14)
Requests To Use the Great Seal and Coat of Arms

All of these uses of the Great Seal die and the design, or coat of arms, are
official. Often private, nonofficial requests to use one or the other come to
the Department of State. The Great Seal can be affixed only as provided by
law [P.L. 91-651, Title 18 USC], and impressions of the seal cannot be
made for display purposes or in response to requests for souvenirs or samples.
This position has been applied not only to impressions made from the
present die but also to impressions from earlier dies still in existence.
As for the coat of arms, the Department has expressed concern in the
past over the increasing tendency to use it in commercial enterprises and
in ways that give the impression of U.S. Government sponsorship or
involvement. However, it is the Department’s current practice not to provide
an opinion as to the suitability of proposed uses. The matter of legality
is left to the Department of Justice
. Title 18 of the U.S. Code, as
revised in January 1971, prohibits use of the likeness of the Great Seal or
any facsimile in “any advertisement, circular, book, pamphlet, or other
publication, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production” for the
purpose of conveying a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the
U.S. Government under threat of a fine of not more than $250 or imprisonment
of not more than 6 months, or both.
So pooning DoJ is going to be more useful than the DoS (although both wouldn't harm, as would pooning your local rep).
