    John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston attend the 2013 Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Gala on Saturday evening (August 24) in Los Angeles.
    The 59-year-old actor reportedly got up on stage at the event to make a plea to save artists from drugs. There have been rumors that John was leaving Scientology, but it seems his presence at the event shoots them down.

    Scientology to celebrate opening of new Fla. building

    • By Charlie Frago Tampa Bay Times
    • Posted: Sunday, August 25, 2013 12:01 a.m.

    CLEARWATER, Fla. — Almost 15 years after it began construction, the Church of Scientology plans to open its massive Flag Building in downtown Clearwater on Oct. 6 with a dedication ceremony it says will draw 10,000 Scientologists.
    One month later, the International Association of Scientologists’ Anniversary Weekend, a signature Scientology event usually held in England, will be moved to Clearwater and conducted in an enormous tent that will seat most of the 8,000 people expected to attend.

    The IAS is a powerful fundraising arm of the church, and the money it collects helps fund Scientology’s social betterment programs. The annual anniversary celebration often is used by church leader David Miscavige to review the church’s successes and announce initiatives.
    Church representatives met with Clearwater city staff Friday to discuss a tentative special event plan submitted to the city on Friday and obtained by the Times.
    Scientologists are thrilled with the coming events, said Pat Harney, a church spokeswoman.
    “We are enthusiastically preparing for both the Opening of our Flag Building and the annual International Association of Scientologists Anniversary Celebration,” she wrote in an email.
    Harney didn’t directly respond to a list of questions about the October dedication and the Nov. 8-9 anniversary event. “As we get closer to the events, we will have further details,” she wrote.
    The Flag Building is also known as the “Super Power” building because it reportedly will be the only place where a highly classified Super Power program, first advanced by church founder L. Ron Hubbard in the 1970s, will be conducted.
    Hubbard said the Super Power program would awaken spiritual beings occupying human forms to empower them to clear the planet of its many perils. Participants would be spun on a gyroscope-like wheel, spend time in a sound chamber, sniff vials emitting fragrances and experience changes in gravitational pull.
    In August 2011, church fundraiser Lauri Webster told Scientologists in Clearwater that the “out-of-this-world machines” in the Super Power building “would make any science fiction buff marvel.”
    Construction of the building, begun in 1998, dragged for years without explanation, eventually drawing daily fines from the city for missing deadlines. In 2011, the church paid $413,500 in fines to Clearwater.
    A 2011 Times analysis showed that the church had raised $145 million for the massive seven-story structure, which covers an entire city block.
    A federal lawsuit filed in January by former parishioner Luis Garcia alleges that the church entity that was responsible for raising funds for the Super Power project purposely kept the building incomplete “to use it as a shill to induce further payments from members.”
    The church paid $290,000 in taxes on the property from 1999 to 2011. The property is now fully tax-exempt. It has been valued at just over $80 million by Pinellas County appraisers.
    For the upcoming events, the church has made some requests of the city, including temporary street closings and removing trees around downtown’s Franklin Street area to accommodate the huge pre-fabricated tent it will ship to Clearwater from England, said Paul Bertels, the city’s traffic operations manager.
    City planners will discuss with the church the idea of temporarily removing trees, Bertels said, but he said it is unlikely that any trees would be permanently removed.

    Celebrity Scientologists Had a Huge Party Last Space! | Jezebel

    Last night, the Church of Scientology held its 44th Anniversary Gala — nicknamed the "huh, I didn't realize that person was a Scientologist" mixer — in Los Angeles.

    Tom Cruise was apparently busy piloting Xenu's personal DC-8 into the far reaches of the galaxy, but Scientology backup quarterback John Travolta was on-hand to pose with everyone.

  14. First I got real happy than I went limp.
  15. Shame about lelani dowding, although in terms of celebrity. She's a nobody.
    But a uk fag told me she is very popular as a model for the Sun newspaper.
    The same Sun newspaper that snuck the journalist into the IAS/saint hill.
    May be worth pooning the sun?

  27. If Leilani Dowding needs to pose fully nude in front of this Scientology sign if she wants to get much publicity for it:


    I would post a better example of one of her topless photos but the mods would just dump it in the dome:

  31. Kirstie Alley was reported to have been there but apparently The Church Photographer didn't catch her. Here is one from 2007:
  32. Budd Member

    Member of U.S. Congress Corrine Brown of Florida is seen presenting an award for the "Church" of $cientology?
    SCORE and WIN! She is from state of Florida, and is the absolute worst Congressperson there is to be found... anywhere.
    Her voting record speaks for itself, and her district personifies the word "gerrymander" as it snakes its way (and I do mean SNAKES its way) from Jacksonville all the way down to Orlando... 143 miles long!
    WIKIPEDIA: After the 1990 census, the Florida legislature carved out a new Third Congressional District in the northern part of the state. This district was designed to enclose an African-American majority within its boundaries. A horseshoe-shaped district touching on largely African-American neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando, and Ocala,[4] the Third District seemed likely to send Florida's first African-American to Congress since Reconstruction, and Brown decided to run.[5]Brown is running in the newly-redrawn District 5. 2012: The Florida Democratic Party is challenging the new district map with a lawsuit, saying, in particular, the new District 5 "as enacted by the Florida Legislature stands out among all of the districts as presenting both the most numerous and most flagrant constitutional violations."[12]
    Also, there are six entries under "Controversies" in her article.

    People in Florida would love to get rid of this woman. Is she an actual Scientologist, with course completions etc.?
