The front of the new Church of Scientology building at 16th & P Streets NW around noon today.

The Church of Scientology dedicated its new facility at the northwest corner of 16th & P NW today, which is why 16th Street near P was blocked off. Dcist has more on the event.

  • This, in addition to the new enormous Church of Scientology opening in Rome, Italy last Friday. The C of S is certainly prospering! In fact, according to a recent Church statement, Scientology has expanded more in the last year than in the last five years combined and more in the last five years than in the last five decades combined!

    How in the hell is this in, anyway, tolerable or acceptable? Was the city compensated for this in any way?

    What did this cult give to the city that it would allow it to cut off a major thoroughfare AND employ so many of our polices force, a force who is needed to fight crime and not coddle cultists?

    Lol. All the impressive, but empty buildings, are not evidence of actual growth in Scientology. Just real estate.
