Birmingham Mail said:
Church of Scientology deal funds blow

THE Church of Scientology today admitted it has not yet done a deal to buy the Grade II listed Birmingham building which it plans to turn in to its Midlands headquarters.

The organisation hopes to part with £4.25 million to snap up Moseley’s plush Pitmaston building on leafy Moor Green Lane, but says it must raise more funds before moving in.

The news may come as a surprise to neighbours who say they have seen followers turn up for a string of meetings in recent weeks.

It was revealed exclusively in the Birmingham Mail that the organisation – famed for its celebrity disciples including Tom Cruise and belief in alien life – were planning to swoop for the former insurance firm offices in April.

Leaders have refused to outline their future plans for the site, but say they will keep locals informed and have vowed to preserve the building’s unique features.

Graeme Wilson, the church’s director of public affairs, said the site would be modelled on the organisation’s newly-opened London base, complete with meeting rooms and lecture theatres.

“The current owners have permitted members of the church to use the building for a few meetings,” he said.

“Once the church secures the site and finalises its plans we will brief the neighbours.

“It is our policy to retain as much as possible the historic features and character of any building we acquire and Pitmaston would not be an exception.”

The splendour of Pitmaston’s marbled floors and oak panelled board rooms was unveiled to Scientologists for the first time on May 17 when members gathered to mark the 50th anniversary of founder L Ron Hubbard’s book Have You Lived Before? which chronicled the experiences of disciples in past lives.

Typical stupid cult, Also, a simple but stupid claim about the 50th year of Hubbard writing "HAVE YOU LIVED BEFORE THIS LIFE?"Hubbard did NOT write that book. He published it in his name but all the work done in compiling it and preparing it into issuable form was not done by Hubbard at all.How do I know?It was my mother who created and developed the book.Nice try, culties.:roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

Well done you little trouble-maker for letting us all know about Scn's difficulties! :thumbsup:

Maybe we could organise a flash-raid on the proposed new building and leaflet the neighbourhood. Do you have any idea when they might next be having a "meeting" there?
