Scientology Coming to Harlem

I never told anyone about this, but last year I saw bunch of Scientologists in times Square, huddled together with a group of Black Israelites as if they were hatching secret plans.* I believe this is the next step in their plan to join forces and conquer the world.

For real though, as much as I'd like to be pleased about the community programs they say they're bringing, this seems like bad news.

Scientology Making Moves on 125th Street

The Church of Scientology, known for its celebrity devotees, is making a big push to expand its empire along 125th Street, purchasing three properties there last week, and planning a major recruitment drive in the neighborhood.

The Rev. John Carmichael, president of the church in New York, declined to give details about the purchase, but reports put the total sales price at $10.2 million.

Carmichael said the three buildings - 228 through 232 E. 125th St. - will house a main Scientology complex and a community center that will offer literacy programs and drug counseling...

*this actually happened.
