(“Well, that’s rich coming from you, Erika Christensen!” –documentaries critical of Scientology)
Nothing puts a bee in the bonnet of a Scientologist like media reports that it’s a bit eccentric or documentaries shining a light on how members are often fleeced of life savings or how the Scientology bathhouse only gets cleaned every other hour. Y’know, typical religious critique. Erika went on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast the other day to say she’s not here for anyone to mock her way of life unless you’ve read the full texts of L. Ron Hubbard. Continue reading
John Travolta and his deep fried platypus lace front may live on another planet (a planet where it’s perfectly okay for your paws to wander to the crotch of a massage therapist without permission, allegedly), but he is an actor in Hollywood and he is currently at Cannes where there’s been a lot of talk about #MeToo. But the pesky details of #MeToo haven’t made it into Johnny’s ears, because he’s a citizen of the globe with a global viewpoint. Xenu, say what, girl?
If there’s one thing Scientologists hate more than quack psychologists, it’s lunatic physicists with their science and logic backed hypothesis about the universe. As anyone who’s bothered to learn the truth about space things and such can tell you, Stephen Hawking was out of his goddamn mind. It’s no wonder the inimitable mind of Kirstie Alley felt the need to take the foolish little man down a peg with a eulogy befitting the charlatan who wouldn’t know a thetan if it hit him between the eyes.

Move over Comedy Central, because there’s a new hilarious comedy channel coming up on the scene. Your DirecTV DVR, Roku or Apple TV device will soon start to reek of lukewarm bullshit and burnt Thetans (which strangely enough, smell exactly like lukewarm bullshit), because The Hollywood Reporter says that Scientology has finally delivered a gift to the zero of you who have thought, “I really love all of these Scientology commercials and wish there was an entire network filled with them!” Xenu TV, the Scientology Network, will makes it debut on streaming services and DirecTV tonight. So if want to give Scientology some hits, and also want a reason to heave up your lungs tonight, you know what to watch.
Mike Rinder and Leah Remini are going all in with their support of fellow ex-cultist and accused sexual assaulter Paul Haggis. In a joint statement posted to Mike Rinder’s blog, the anti-Scientology Scooby gang of two use the old “he’s a good man” argument, and added that the charges against Paul might be a deep pocketed Scientology hit job.
I’m sure many people, myself included, were hoping and praying for some high drama at the Golden Globes last night. The moment Elisabeth Moss’ name was called as the winner for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama for The Handmaid’s Tale I braced myself for a messy moment. I was disappointed.
