Scientology ‘Ideal Org’: Washington, DC

 
“Founding Church of Scientology”
1424 16th Street NW
Washington DC 20036
202-797-9826

Went Ideal: October 31, 2009
Miscavige quote: “A Declaration of Independence, wherein it is written that all men are endowed with certain inalienable rights—including the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To which we of this Church would add: That all men of whatever race, color or creed were created with equal rights. That the souls of men have the rights of men. And that no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside those rights. For that is what our Founder declared in the Creed of our Church. So yes, you are looking at a living embodiment of the freedom and equality that originally inspired this nation. Because, yes, this Church stands for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, yes, it stands here today because of the freedom on which this nation was built—the freedom of religion. For it was here, in this nation’s capital, that we fought for and won our recognition. And all which has made it possible for us to reach out the world over with our programs to bring the American dream of freedom to every being of every nation. And with the opening of this new Church, our unqualified help will now extend even farther.”

[Since 2003, Scientology leader David Miscavige has been on an ambitious quest to upgrade every one of Scientology’s “orgs” — its name for churches. One after another, orgs are being replaced by “Ideal Orgs” in what Miscavige claims represents an expansion of the church’s reach. Local members are under intense pressure to raise funds for the multimillion-dollar projects, but there’s no evidence that fancier facilities are bringing in new members. We’re maintaining pages for each Ideal Org, and we’re hoping you’ll help us keep up to date about these places by sending us information about them.]
