A little clue from reality for you Kevin: Press releases are NOT NEWS.

More: Press releases from the Church of Scientology are NOT TRUE.

End of clue.

There are several things about this situation that are odd.

One is that the article says cos has been here in Nashville since the 80's and cos says there's a couple hundred members here. cos has had a presence here for over 20 years and yet there's just a couple hundred members? Doesn't sound like a lot of growth to me. That's what - 10 or 15 members a year? Pretty poor showing...

Also because there were so few members here they couldn't raise the funds for the new building, so they had fund drives from all over the country. There's a thread on wwp showing a letter from a 13 year old girl in CA who talks about her family donating money to put up the Nashville org, and she also says how she sold her toys to help fund it.

Not much growth when children have to sell their toys in another state to support a new church here...

A large building does not mean large amounts of members here. I've never seen more than half a dozen people in the current cc building. All this means is cos has money to burn to buy buildings because of what they charge for their "services", and by having their children sell their toys.

Interesting observations. As one who lives there you can see first hand that Co$ claims of "expanding" are absurd. They can't even fill the buildings they have.

Real businesses grow by expanding customers and expanding sales -- and from those expanded sales and profits, expand their infrastructure when they outgrow it.

The Church of Scientology is all about facade. They "grow" by increasing their facade, not membership, not sales, just how they look to the outside world. Big empty buildings are "growth". Yeah, sure.

Interesting. So why concern yourself at all, when you don't see things to object to? For example, the millions of scientologists. No one is rubbing your nose in it, obviously, since you can't even find one. So what difference could it possibly make to you how many the Church claims? What prompts the ongoing, potty mouthed, reactionary double babble?

@Unanimous

I have your solution. Don't read the SCIENTOLOGY forum and you won't be disturbed by the conversations here. Go away. Stay away.
