(Editor: Today we celebrated a landmark event of a get-together of many South African Indy/Sp/ and other ex-RCS (Radical Corporate Scientology) members. Approximately 90 people attended the function and without fail, everyone agreed they had a fantastic time, leaving the venue smiling and happy, clutching notes with contact details of new friends and old relationships rekindled.
As soon as we have all the photos, report back and video material together, we will put together a comprehensive article on BIC for everyone to share.)

And now next in our series of reporting on the status quo of African Ideal Morgues:
Last week we were forwarded an HONOUR ROLL of the Cape Town Ideal Morgue donors list:
We see new donor status’s have been conjured up too. In the early days it was a huge accomplishment to reach New Civilization Builder. Not many reached this status. And then a New Civilization Champion was introduced. And then came Humanitarian which put you in a league of your own. . And now there’s a whole bunch of sub-Humanitarian statuses: Silver Humanitarian, Gold Humanitarian, Platinum Humanitarian and now….RHODIUM HUMANITARIAN…..Followed by …..NEW CIVILIZATION CRUSADER
Whoever dreams up these new statuses certainly has a lot of fun, but one wonders where it will end. Or more to the point, when will it end?
In November 2013 we did a full article on the Cape Town Ideal Org Saga – it’s worth visiting the article to refresh yourself on this zany cycle. Specifically the point of how the org begged and pleaded with Gaye & Ernest Corbett to furnish a R9Million guarantee for the balance of the purchase price (R18Million) – which the Corbetts duly did.
The key here is that Cape Town Ideal Org has been standing empty since 2004 – 11 years and not one renovation has begun. Having trouble with overheads such as rent etc, the staff moved into their (fully paid) building as renovations were not imminent. Someone at INT (maybe his initials were DM but we’re not saying) threw a hissy fit and ordered them out of the building, so out they went back to rented premises, once again battling to keep up with their overheads. This got so bad that someone at INT got the “bright idea” of moving them back into their self-owned building and so they moved again (and no, we’re not saying DM got the bright idea but he does pretty much take credit for all great ideas and blames anything that goes wrong on others – just saying).
In February 2014 a new 3-man Sea Org Mission was sent to Cape Town to get their Ideal Org to a DONE. We covered this in our article Ideal Org Update on the 11th February 2014. Within weeks the team had been split up and were sent off on different cycles. Cape Town had not moved ahead an inch.
And here is the Cape Town Ideal Org Honour Roll:

Subject: Cape Town Honour Roll
There are some every interesting points to note about this honour roll.
Of course the obvious one is Bob & Trish Duggan sitting up there at the new status of Rhodium Humanitarian. Looks like they have now moved on to fostering/adopting Cape Town Ideal Org as their new hobby-horse.
Next, this list is ancient – the majority of these names are not new and these donations came in as far back as 5 years – some of them even older.
A couple of other oddities we picked up were:
Walter & Marie Hex. Marie died some time ago, so this donation is not new. Nor is the Warren & Andrea Bruckmann, John & Sonja Morshead – (repeated twice on the roll). Nor Peter & Vicci Hayward and Glenys Jenson who was a “recovered” SP who made a sizable donation to Ideal Orgs in lieu of doing her A-E steps, and then routed into the Sea Org in 2011 (She is now in CLO AF). Another very old and odd donation.
Of all the names listed, 18 people are no longer members of the Church – they have quietly stepped away and are now either UTR or gone.
In summary, there are very few new names on this list. Of the 219 names, 18 people are no longer in the Church or are UTR. 48 names on the list are donations made more than 5 years ago – leaving 153 names added in 6 years. That’s 25 new donors per annum.
With the declared SP’s and those that have left the Church quietly, this further lessens their “pool” by a substantial amount.
And then we get to the SP’s. 22 names of “SP’s” have been removed from the list entirely. We assume that seeing as these names are no longer on the list they don’t exist and will never be allowed entry into the building they bought. This then stands to reason that all declared SP’s whose names have been removed from ALL Org plaques (JBG, PTA, JBN etc) will be getting their money back yes?
Dear OSA person who’s job it is to read this blog: Kindly send a list of all SP’s removed off Ideal Org Honour Rolls together with the amount they donated and a date that they can expect the refund of their money. This list can be sent to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
If any readers out there made a donation to Ideal Orgs but are no longer on Honour Rolls or plaques, please drop us a line stating which org/s, the amount/s donated and the status achieved per org. We would like to put together an article on this – it would seem that the “SP’s of South Africa” own considerable real estate in this country.
In the meantime, while the numbers of people exiting the Church continues, we came across this rather funny cartoon which is eerily true to the current RCS situation:
