More on the Church of Scientology in London

Here's another look at the new Scientology Church in London, which will be the emanation point for all of the Human Rights campaigns in the UK. 

"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."

Scientologists Open Major Church in Heart of London

Seeing as though some of the most major human rights campaigns get launched out of the Churches of Scientology in the UK, it's fitting I mention a spectacular grand opening just held of the Church of Scientology of London, on Queen Victoria Street in Downtown London.  The Scientology Church in London -- the oldest Church of Scientology in the UK has been at its Tottenham Ct. location for the last 38 years, but due to membership increasing in recent years, it was neccesary for the Church to get larger quarters.

The typical London rain at the opening didn't seem to dampen anybody's spirits, as the people in London were extremely enthused about the new church and what it means for Scientology in the United Kingdom, and all of the church's programs there.  

Per the article posted on the Scientology London website (newly designed, very nice), Mr. David Miscavige was the keynote speaker at the event, which apparently had something like 3-4 thousand people attending.

Drug Education Message Loud and Clear in New Zealand

Scientologists in New Zealand have been increasingly effective in reaching out into their community to cause to major positive changes, especially in a scourge which has been hitting the country in the way of drugs.  

Scientology in New ZealandThough it is one of the most beautiful places on earth (a cursory search for images revealed the nifty one you see on this page), the country is not without the same problems as any other country, including massive problems with drugs, as well as the attendent violence and crime.   Now, if you were at the Celebrity Centre Gala in 2004 or at the Church of Scientology of Buffalo Grand Opening (like I was, luckily enough), you would have heard Mr. David Miscavige speak about the strenuous work that Scientologists are putting in on the anti-drug front, with drug education, drug prevention, and drug rehabilitation high on the list of things active Scientologists are engaged in -- not only "engaged in" though, but actually effective at.

Human Rights & Relationship to North Korea

Scientologists from the Church of Scientology of Frankfurt join the German Chapter of Youth for Human Rights International in a march through the streets of their city to promote human rights education.

World War I was so savage and brutal it was named the “war to end all wars." Yet a mere twenty years later the world was once again embroiled in global conflict. And in the name of preventing a reoccurrence of the infamous atrocities of World War II, in 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was born, in the realization that — recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

But almost 60 years after the Universal Declaration was adopted by the member states of the United Nations, a brief glance at the news demonstrates the harsh truth — that the implementation of the human rights, laid out in this document and its European counterpart, the European Convention on Human Rights, has not been accomplished.

And what could be more pertinent now, when there is such a new crisis going on? It once again comes down to man's respect for himself and for his fellows, and applying that truthfully in life -- not just in rhretoric.

I once attended a talk by Mr. David Miscavige in Buffalo, at that Church of Scientology's grand opening, and there it became abundantly clear that one of the key elements to having peace is by getting people to simply agree on some basic rights that they all have, and then make those become a fact. People have a right to their own lives and their own posessions, so why would any country belligerantly challenge this? There is always something that can be done about such things, and the answer in this case is not more fighting, but plain, simple communication.

Human Rights March at the Kremlin

MOSCOW: For the thousands of Russian runners, who raced here on Sunday, world peace is not just a slogan — it is a mission.

The Church of Scientology of Moscow joined the local chapter of Youth for Human Rights International and the Moscow government in organizing the 26th annual International Marathon for Peace. Human rights was a major topic covered by Mr. David Miscavige in his talks to world celebrities and leaders , and in subsequent presentations since. It's a major factor of what Scientologists do, in terms of ensuring Human Rights are available for all -- not just for people of the Scientology Religion, but for all religions.
