$3.5 million purchased One Griswold Street. The Church of Scientology bought the eight-story office building in Detroit Michigan. It was constructed in 1926 and is located in the central business district, on Detroit’s waterfront.
Looks more like some people on ShortNews are here to post anything that involves scien-toy-ology.
Will it be considered news if I post whenever someone in my town buys a house or office building for a few million? I'm sure the local real estate agent will be more than happy to supply me with a "newsletter" of big sales they post in the "news" section on their web site.
I don't think costar.com can be considered a news source.
Are you talking about downtown Detroit, in general, or specifically the Scientologists? I don't think they have murdrered anyone, have they? I mean, I know they are part of an intergalactic war with Xerg or Brooke Shields, or somebody...
Other religious cults, like Christianity and Islam, are much more bloodthirsty.
Actually, the "Church" in question has an interesting history as far as murder goes. Although, it's more like neglect that has led to death than direct murder. I forget the ladies name. It was a pretty big deal when it initially happened.
Then they settled in court for some undisclosed amount of cash, and well. The end.
When members start transferring large sums of money to the cult, in the Tens and Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars, and then turn up emaciated from hunger, with cockroach bites on a body after a cult ambulance gets into an accident or a German is found drowned dead in the morning on the beach a week after his generous donation, it becomes a murderous cult.
You go in, they get your financial information, and then one way or another, the money will be transferred from your account to the cult.
Now Tom Cruise, Lisa Marie Pressley and John Travolta can come visit and make everyone better and spread the word of a science fiction writer. Maybe the aliens plan on landing in one of the closed down factory parking lots around there, lord knows there are enough.
"Aliens" is one of those far-out myths that have little to do with Scientology but seem to fixate critic's attention. Regardless, Scientology has purchased several properties in the past year, the Detroit waterfront property being the most recent.
I don't know. With "Thetan Levels" being an important part, it seems aliens are very crucial to Scientology. Or else, according to them, we'd no longer be conscious beings in these host bodies of ours.
It's only now that Scientology is growing in popularity (thanks to celebrities, probably on a payroll =P ) that they distance themselves from their very own origin in an effort to become reputable.
No matter how much they "evolve" their own doctrine, the original "creation story" can't be ignored. We are the conscious minds of former alien slaves, forced to the volcano's of earth by some fascist, evil ruler from another planet.
That original document can be found online. But Scientologist warn that without being a Thetan Level Whatever, you'll die if you read it.
So far I'm fine. But make sure and report my untimely death, as I'm sure its bound to happen.
BOW BEFORE L.RON HUBBARD!!! He and the lizard people from outer space are coming, and if you don't believe this then you are going to burn in HELL! Before, the problem with Scientology was that there were no denominations, so I'm solving this problem by starting The Church of L.Ron Hubbard Latter Day Saints. You must pay me $5 to join and every time you want to move up in standing in the church, you have to pay $10 extra. I'm the affordable version of Scientology. The Church of L Ron Hubbard Latter Day Saints focuses on the teaching of Master Hubbard in his book Battlefield Earth, which is a great and truthful vision of the future.
"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be start his own religion" L. Ron Hubbard As quoted in the Los Angeles Times (27 August 1978)
