With Christmas just gone we are rapidly approaching the start of 2015. We’d like to wish everyone a wonderful celebration in bringing in the new year.
We are taking a short break from the blog. We will return on the 6th of January.
Here’s to a 2015 that will at least see the beginning of the reform we all wish to see. We especially wish to see a highest ever reuniting of family and friends that have been so painfully separated.
See you soon!
As we come to the end of the year the blog admins find themselves in holiday mode and things have slowed down which was partly planned, partly forced due to circumstance.
In any event we wish everyone a happy holiday season and bring you this story which was featured on Mike Rinder’s blog today. We are reposting it here so our local and regular commenting community have the opportunity to discuss it. (And for the sake of clarity the misspelled “Jobur” is deliberate – it comes from a misspelling on a fundraising promo from earlier this year).
We’ll just add that at the time of publishing this article the fundraiser to get the R500k needed for a generator would have just completed and it remains to be seen if they managed to extract this amount out of their public just days before Christmas. Our money is on “no”.
Lights Out At Jobur Org
Here is another chapter in the sad tale of the demise of Jobur Ideal Org.
To begin, let me remind you that this is the second “ideal org.” Dear Leader himself made the long trip to bless the “new org” and in finest shermanspeak, pronounced this the beginning of the new age in Africa and THE thing that would make S. Africa the first cleared country. And the goodness would spread from there and overtake the entire continent.

BIC is proud to present this important article covering a recent documentary by Channel 10 TV – our thanks to special correspondents in Israel.
Recently BIC reported that a lawsuit has been brought against the Church by Dani & Tami Lemberger of the Dror Center in Israel. As a refresher, you can read that article here.
This lawsuit has generated much interest which recently resulted in a documentary about the Lembergers and the church’s disconnection policy, prepared by one of Israel’s top TV channels, Channel 10. This aired on prime time, Saturday evening of 29 Nov 2014. There have also been several newspaper articles.
Article by “Wisdom Learnt”
This is part of the story of an old timer, a dedicated Scientologist, who became disaffected and was ultimately declared as part of the group of 18.
I was told a few times in the past that I was disaffected by the likes of Ken Krieger and others and in truth he was right. My dissatisfaction with those in authority, particularly Sea Org management, started in the late sixties but it was only when I received Debbie Cook’s letter that I realised others around the world felt the same way I did.
I was not a computer person and had never followed the developments on the internet. At the beginning of 2013 I had no idea that any Independent / Freezone Scientology group even existed.
Email & promo lines have recently been buzzing about Joburg North Ideal Org being DONE!
All the money needed to purchase “Fern Manor” (as it’s being coined) is in the bank!
