Memphis Mission – Is it for sale?

Posted in Truth about Scientology on February 15, 2008 by midsouthanon

The Memphis Flyer reported back in December that the Co$ Mission in Memphis was for sale for the cool sum of $895,000.

When we protested on last Saturday, there was not a for sale sign in sight. Most of the neighbors were under the impression the Mission had moved. We had several neighbors tell us “They aren’t there anymore.” As one neighbor put it, “We thought we’d run them off already!” We knew from calling ahead, however, they did still meet at the Church.

This week I decided to do a bit of digging. The Co$ had taken their For Sale sign down. I searched the real estate listings in Memphis and found jack. After a few days of digging, I found the old feature listing for it on their real estate agent’s site. I managed to dig up the MLS number. I plugged it into Realtor.com and Re-max and found nothing.

Another Anon gave this scoop –

i called the number on the real estate sign….they said the property was listed as inactive, but when i pressed her, she gave me the direct number to the agent…after he tried to give me the runaround, he finally said it was listed at $850,000

Very interesting.

Another point to ponder from the Flyer article –

(David) Slaughter said parishioners come from all over the city, but he could not provide an estimate of local church membership.

And from another part –

Central Gardens residents say that the Church of Scientology has been a quiet neighbor.

“I’ve never seen a human go in there,” said Peter Donovan, who manages the nearby University Club of Memphis.

This Anon thinks that maybe, just maybe, the Co$ Mission isn’t holding the numbers like it used to!

Masks

Posted in Planning on February 13, 2008 by midsouthanon

From our planning thread :

Unless Memphis has a specific law, wearing a mask in Tennessee is totally legal. Here is what the “Tennessee Law” says in Title 39, Chapter 17, Part 309 – Civil rights intimidation (39-17-309)

(c) It is an offense for a person to wear a mask or disguise with the intent to violate subsection (b).

Here is what (b) says:

(b) A person commits the offense of intimidating others from exercising civil rights who:

**(1) Injures or threatens to injure or coerces another person with the intent to unlawfully intimidate another from the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured by the constitution or laws of the state of Tennessee;

**(2) Injures or threatens to injure or coerces another person with the intent to unlawfully intimidate another because that other exercised any right or privilege secured by the constitution or laws of the United States or the constitution or laws of the state of Tennessee;

**(3) Damages, destroys or defaces any real or personal property of another person with the intent to unlawfully intimidate another from the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured by the constitution or laws of the state of Tennessee; or

**(4) Damages, destroys or defaces any real or personal property of another person with the intent to unlawfully intimidate another because that other exercised any right or privilege secured by the constitution or laws of the United States or the constitution or laws of the state of Tennessee.

Basically, if we behave everything should be fine. Don’t threaten, intimidate, injure, damage or destroy anyone/anything. That sounds easy and fair to me.

So masks seem ok for now. For more planning, visit our planning thread!

Crazy lady, we love you

Posted in Feb 10, 2008 on February 12, 2008 by midsouthanon

So, shortly after the Midsouth Anon gathered at the CO$ Mission, we had an interesting experience.

A lady in a silver car pulled up into the CO$ parking lot, and jumped out, running towards us. The collective reaction was “WTF? Is she a Scientologist come to harass us? Are we gonna get bullbaited?”

She runs to the sidewalk and starts screaming, “I LOVE YOU GUYS! I WANT YOUR PICTURE! YOU ARE SO AWESOME!” She takes a few pictures then as she leaves, she cuts a donut in the CO$ yard.

While the Memphis Anons in no way shape form or fashion condone her actions, it was damn funny.

Please don’t deface the Co$ Mission, folks.

All hail the King, baby!

Fuck those people! There’s no way I’ll ever get involved with that son-of-a-bitchin’ group. All they want is my money. –
