Something Can Be Done About It
I don’t know how many of the other photos you’ve seen of the new London Church of Scientology, but this building is outrageous.
From the ScientologyToday article: The London Church’s new home is an 1866 Italian-styled Victorian landmark designed by architect Edward l’Anson for the British and Foreign Bible Society. Redevelopment in the mid-80s transformed it into a fully functioning modern office facility that served British Petroleum for two decades. The historic staircase and double-height entrance hall have been restored to create a welcoming and elegant atmosphere for parishioners and visitors.
Beyond the aesthetics of the building itself, Mr. Miscavige spoke of the role of the programs that will roll out from within the London church’s walls: “Our gift of literacy to disadvantaged children; restoring self-respect to those who’ve gone astray; easing suffering; eradicating racial prejudice; and, repairing the bonds that bind man together.
“This new church packs the full body of L Ron Hubbard’s technologies as derived from the greater well of Scientology knowledge,” said Mr. David Miscavige, “and, as such, it provides the full gamut of Scientology activities for the betterment of mankind.”
