At 3:45 this afternoon the Lisa McPherson Trust closed on the building at 33 N. Ft. Harrison Ave., despite a last minute desperation attempt by Ben Shaw, Flag PR. The owner of the building was offered much more than the building is worth to break the agreement with the Trust, plus indemnification against any lawsuit caused by breaking the deal. The staff and many of the Board of Directors are celebrating the Big Win at Ottavio's this evening. No pickets have been sighted yet, nor any Scientologists on the block.
I think this is a landmark in educating people about the dangers of Scientology, and will be a lifeline to any members in trouble or who have doubts for years to come. My admiration for the people who have relocated to Clearwater grows as I come to understand what they have willingly put themselves up to accomplish. To Stacy, David, Mark and Jesse and others as the organization grows, I know the neighborhood will welcome you warmly, as you show that somebody cares enough about the well-being of the members of Scientology to tell them the truth.
