    Church of Scientology Wants to Celebrate Opening With Party on 125th Street

    By Gustavo Solis, New York, July 29, 2015

    The Church of Scientology wants to celebrate the grand opening of its house of worship and community center with a massive block party on Sept. 19 at 125th Street between Second and Third avenues — but it hasn't received approval from locals concerned about traffic.

    It has become a custom for Scientology to host large parties when unveiling new churches around the world. More than 2,500 are expected to attend Harlem’s opening, said Pastor Verlene Cheeseboro.

    “It is going to be a wonderful celebration,” said Cheeseboro, who has attended seven church openings around the country. “People from all over the world are going to come to 125th Street."

    But despite support from the NYPD and the Department of Transportation, Community Board 11 did not approve the event during a special full board meeting Tuesday evening.

    The board voted twice — in one instance received 16 yes votes, 14 no votes and four abstentions — but could not muster enough yes votes to approve to partial closure. As a result the board has no position on the issue and will let the city decide, Chair Matthew Washington said.

    The main concern, according to community board members, was how partial closures would affect the traffic flow in on 125th Street. The closures would include the parking lane and bus lane on the south side of the thoroughfare for about three hours.

    When the Church of Scientology met the Board’s License and Permits Committee on July 20, the committee felt that the partial closure would disrupt traffic on 125th Street and suggested alternative locations, said James Garcia.

    “The committee is definitely supportive of the church and all faith based groups in East Harlem, our main concern is the traffic flow,” he said.

    Garcia, who chairs the committee, voted in favor of the event after hearing the DOT was ok with it.

    During Tuesday’s meeting, church members and supporters touted their community outreach programs, including anti-drug work and free tutoring when asking to approve the partial street closure.

    Supporters included former NYPD Chief Kevin Harrington and filmmaker Ronald Lang, who wrote “All About the Benjamins.”

    “I think the short term inconvenience of an event or celebration of what they are going to bring to the community is going to be outweighed by the long-term benefits,” Harrington said.

    The church also had the support from the 25th Precinct and the Department of Transportation.

    . . .
    Long video but worth it if you want to see someone get
    their ass handed to them on a silver platter.

    Spoiler: the org people end up calling the po po on the locals
    who are asking questions. Many NY cop cars show up.

    What do they call that again? PR Area Control?

    I'd like to live on Brother Polight's Street!

    I'd like Brother Polight to live on my street!

    The video is so heartening; to see and hear a concerned citizen call out the stupid, vile and vulgar racism of L. Ron Hubbard, and see people listening to him!

    Polight quotes Hubbard's racist writing to the Dianetics guy. Dianetics guy never heard it before and in proper homo novis style defends Hubbard by claiming that the quote is either false or taken out of context. Polight then takes Dianetics guy to task for defending a racist. Dianetics girl calls the police.

    Police arrive and tell Polight to leave because he doesn't have a permit. Polight asks to see Dianetic's permit. Dianetics booth is then shut down for not having a permit.

    For me, another consequence of Polight's actions was to expose the blatant cowardice of the Dianetics moonbats.

    Polight is one seriously well-informed protester!

    NYC Motherfuckery would be impressed!

    Scientology about to throw its Harlem party — and we need your eyes and ears!

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, September 18, 2015

    Scientology has its soul duds on! These young staff members are in place in Harlem for tomorrow’s big block party, as David Miscavige opens yet another Ideal Org.

    We’re very disappointed that we won’t be on the scene because of other obligations. We’d love to know if there are any New York correspondents who might want to check out the scene for us and maybe snap a few photos on Saturday. Please let us know.

    Worshipping the Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a real religion, court rules

    Believing in Pastafarianism is not a constitutional right.

    by David Kravets - Apr 14, 2016 1:02pm PST
    Inmate Stephen Cavanaugh
    A Nebraska inmate who has professed his allegiance to the divine Flying Spaghetti Monster lost his bid demanding that prison officials accommodate his Pastafarianism faith.

    A federal judge dismissed the suit (PDF) Tuesday brought by Stephen Cavanaugh, who is serving a 4- to 8-year term on assault and weapons charges at the Nebraska State Penitentiary. US District Judge John Gerrard ruled that FSMism isn't a religion like the ones protected under the Constitution.

    The Court finds that FSMism is not a 'religion' within the meaning of the relevant federal statutes and constitutional jurisprudence. It is, rather, a parody, intended to advance an argument about science, the evolution of life, and the place of religion in public education. Those are important issues, and FSMism contains a serious argument—but that does not mean that the trappings of the satire used to make that argument are entitled to protection as a 'religion,' the judge ruled. (PDF)

    For the uninitiated, Judge Gerrard gives some explanatory background on Pastafarianism:
    FSMism is a riposte to intelligent design that began with a letter to the Kansas State Board of Education when it was considering intelligent design. See, Bobby Henderson, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster 111-13 (2006) (FSM Gospel).

    The primary criticism of intelligent design—and the basis for excluding it from school science classes—is that although it purports to be scientific, it is actually an interesting theological argument but not science. Kitzmiller, 400 F. Supp. 2d at 745-46. The conceit of FSMism is that, because intelligent design does not identify the designer, its master intellect could just as easily be a Flying Spaghetti Monster as any Judeo-Christian deity—and, in fact, that there is as much scientific evidence for a Flying Spaghetti Monster as any other creator. See FSM Gospel at 3-4. 1 As the FSM Gospel explains, [w]e are entering into an exciting time, when no longer will science be limited to natural explanations. . . . Propelled by popular opinion and local government, science is quickly becoming receptive to all logical theories, natural and supernatural alike.

    In his lawsuit, the inmate sought $5 million and claimed he has "several tattoos proclaiming his faith and demanded that prison officials afford his faith the ability to order and wear religious clothing and pendants, the right to meet for weekly worship services and classes and the right to receive communion." Corrections officials determined FSMism was a parody religion and rejected his requests.

    (The religious clothing at issue is a pirate costume, the judge notes.)

    According to the ruling:

    This is not a question of theology: it is a matter of basic reading comprehension. The FSM Gospel is plainly a work of satire, meant to entertain while making a pointed political statement. To read it as religious doctrine would be little different from grounding a "religious exercise" on any other work of fiction. A prisoner could just as easily read the works of Vonnegut or Heinlein and claim it as his holy book, and demand accommodation of Bokononism or the Church of All Worlds. 6 See, Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle (Dell Publishing 1988) (1963); Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land (Putnam Publ'g Grp. 1961). Of course, there are those who contend—and Cavanaugh is probably among them—that the Bible or the Koran are just as fictional as those books. It is not always an easy line to draw. But there must be a line beyond which a practice is not religious simply because a plaintiff labels it as such. The Court concludes that FSMism is on the far side of that line.

    Nebraska, in seeking to have the case dismissed, told the judge that there was no constitutional violation. The essence of this action, the state wrote, is that prison officials believe the Plaintiff is not sincere in his religious beliefs about a flying lump of spaghetti that first created 'a mountain, trees, and a midget.

    I am wondering if this could be used in litigation against the Scieno-Scientolos and that fracking midget MisCreant Mis Cabbage ... I would love to get Ole Wavy Davy of the Scieno Scientolo Navy to defend the Pastafarianism written about here....

    Please enjoy during your consideration on how we might annoy
    all my best
