"If someone starts talking to me negatively about something they've never actually studied that actual text of, I don't really admire them very much because it shows they don't have much integrity, so I just kind of ignore them. I'm not going to listen to gossip and hearsay about something that's affected my life so tremendously in such a tremendously positive way. It's a new religion. Historically every new religion has been [dismissed]. People were hanged, fed to the lions for their beliefs so this is just a modern day evolution of what happens when something new comes into our culture. It is not fully understood yet. I've seen drug addicts completely rehabilitated, I've seen the illiterate become literate, I've seen people that were so depressed and hopeless completely rehabilitate their goals in life, become happier, find partners. It's beautiful."

- Former TV actress Jenna Elfman, on Scientology, to reporters in Sydney this past week

    crazy shittttt. ew



  2. 2

    The Dharma & Greg bitch?
    Really? Is there nothing going on in Hollywood?



  3. 3

    I believe in flying monkeys



  4. 4

    I think she is right. Scientology is not fully understood and so people begins to create stories about it.
    If you dont know it you cant not say that its bad or good.



  5. 5

    It's all so beautiful…except for the cultish aspects. And yes I have studied the texts.



  6. 6

    HUH?!



  7. 7

    C U NEXT TUESDAY. STUPID BITCH



  8. 8

    I thought most celebs went to Scientology to revive their careers. She should quit stomping for the "religion" cause she hasn't had a hit since Dharma and Greg.



  9. 9

    So how did the illiterates study the actual texts???



  10. 10

    …and we are interested in what g-lister Jenna Elfman has to say because ???



  11. 11

    Bat……shit……crazy!!!!!



  12. 12

    Re: angelikauri99 – I'm sure it's helped people but gee, it was created by a science fiction writer. That's not exactly Jesus or Buddah.

    Tommy girl has had how many marriages now? Doesn't seem like it has enriched his life all that much.



  14. 14

    She talks about rehabiliation - religion is about spirituality, not just a way of life. And most of the acknowledged world religions do not require you to pay fees for "programs" that lead to a "better life". Most of them ask for donations. The facts are right there - Scientology was created by somebody who wrote science fiction - how credible was he as a founder of a religion?



  15. 15

    Say what you will about Scientology…..and I do believe that it is a huge "cash grab"…but, you can't deny that many of its followers (Kirstie Alley excluded) look really healthy and like they have their shit together.



  16. 16

    Oh come on, all she's saying is "read the text before you judge me and tell me my religion is wrong", isn't that all anyone can ask?
    *
    Scientology texts are interesting AND best taken metaphorically, like most religions and their texts. I'm suspicious of religions that ask for money/labor, so I wouldn't enter a scientology church, but the texts are useful and interesting. Metaphorically.



  17. 17

    So, does that mean that she thinks fair game is beautiful too?



  18. 18

    ummm yeah jenna… it's TOTALLY helped your career there too…..



  19. 19

    I love Jenna but it's a cult baby…come on now



  20. 20

    Right. After you hand over a ton of money . . . How spiritual.



  21. 21

    she's a crazy bitch… lol



  22. 22

    i'm too poor to be a scientologist… sucks for me



  23. 23

    Jenna really knows how to bring the lulz.



  24. 24

    I could invent a religion that revolved around something like NAMBLA. Sure, with enough money pumped into it, it could solve the problems of drugs, alcohol, illiteracy, smoking, etc…..but its still fucked in the head.



  25. 25

    All it is….is a ponzi scam with Hollywood on top and "Joe 6-pack" on the bottom getting shit on. If you are Hollywood, it would behoove you to join.



  26. 26

    Brain washed by the creepy auditors,now they are after Pink…sigh.



  27. 27

    Nothing wrong with a system for improving your life. But when it's created by a Z grade science fiction writer who calls his scheme a "religion" for tax purposes and whose fundamental mythology is a bunch of bullshit about aliens, it is and will always be a source of ridicule/confusion/pressing questions.



  28. 28

    Re: grenade – haha, too true.



  29. 29

    Oh yeah, because in other religions, people were taken from their homes and families forcefully and enrolled into the religions' private navy. Uh huh.

    I've done my research. Obviously, this Z lister has NOT. Next!



  30. 30

    And just because believing a lie helps you achieve x,y,or z doesn't make it any less of a LIE.



  31. 31

    Re: grenade – good question, maybe they were given drugs, so they FELT the texts. and then they became clean, and now they are both - clean and literate. or the litarate are those who aren't clean..



  32. 32

    "I'd like to start a religion - that's where the money is. The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion." - L. Ron Hubbard to Lloyd Esbach in 1949.

    Believe it or not folks scientology is crazy. It's a cult, why do you think it's banned in most European countries? When the Scientology Church opened in Edinburgh someone stopped me on the street, tried to talk to me about Scientology - enriching my life and all it would cost was £59.99 for a personality test to be administered at the centre. When I told him I wasn't interested and I know all about Scientology as I study popular culture, religion and psychology he said: "Xanu will not thank you". Seriously, for real.

    It's complete horse shit and sooner or later when the next faddy thing comes along it will disappear and people will think WHAT THE FUCK WAS I ON?

    Unless your Tom Cruise. He's just odd.

  33. Rovex says – reply to this


    33

    Whatever. Im sure it does help some people, but jut like the bible, it doesn't change the fact thats its all made up bullshit.



  34. 34

    help her she has thetans attached to her body!!!!!!

    omg



  35. 35

    LMAO!!!!

    The Australian media pokes fun at Scientology any time they can. This is just another incident involving another Kooky scifag.

    Since Mr Packer "left" scifaggery so he could capitalise on net gambling - his media outlets are obviously able to report openly and truthfully about Scifaggery.

    Australians tend to not want to have a bar of it. There will always be people who get sucked in by cults, but on the majority,we reject Scientology and adore the tabloid reports about alien babies, conspiracy theory surrounding Suri's real father and anonymous wanting to help free Katie.

    It's a cacker.

    Elfman? Who is she anyway - she's already been identified as a crazy scifag who asks people if they raped babies, or more so accuses people of raping babies because they refuse to believe in Scifaggery.

    It's embarrassing to know she's here, but hilarious that she's being poked fun at and doesn't even know it.



  36. 36

    …now if it could help Kirstie Alley lose weight and keep it off you might have a following…cos Jenny Craig bombed for her….

    Jenna you're being GLIB!!!..it's a cult….but since YOU brought it up….I'd be amenable to tossing some sciencreeptologist into the lion den at the zoo….or throwing some into the water to see if they float. EVIL!!!!



  37. 37

    She used to have such spark. Be so pretty! Once she got into this cult she went downhill.
    .
    Most religions ask people to tithe, but that is if you can.
    .
    This cult, run by lawyers, requires, demands the money. You are not going anywhere with this group if you don't pay. Well, if you can't they put you to work in the kitchens or booths at mall kiosks, citiwalk etc…
    .
    Not right.



  38. 38

    where's my v for vendetta mask?



  39. 39

    that just reaffirms my suspicions that its a cult..



  40. 40

    Re: amberkitty – Tom Cruise especially appears to have his shit together. I know many mentally stable people that act in his manner.

    This coming from someone that said AIDS is a state of mind!!!!!
    This silly ignorant cow makes a fool of herself every time she opens her mouth.

  42. Joce says – reply to this


    42

    Cults do that. they brainwash people. I still don't like to count a cult started by a sci fi writer as a religion.

    and scientologists are some of the most delusion people. they don't have their shit together even in the slightest.

    If you notice, celebs who are connected to that cult tend to be really dry or what they call "mature" Katie holmes is a fine example. she was a normal youthful adult and now shes aged about 10 years and tries to go by Kate because its more grown up.



  43. 43

    what's beautiful is when people stop shooting crack up their veins. i'm not sure committing to alien-based religions created by sci fi authors counts.



  44. 44

    I'm currious about this "text" of which she speaks about. Is she talking about "Dianetics"? Who hasn't read that claptrap, self-help, but give us all your money, bs?



  45. 45

    Heidi in 15 years……Without Spencer



  46. 46

    She has a point…

  47. tasha says – reply to this


    47

    They worship a science fiction writer. That is not a religion. That is a cult.



  48. 48

    Re: Toonkinstein – Hell, if they could make Kirstie Alley lose weight AND KEEP IT OFF BITCH, I would join them and just count it as a very expensive form of weight watchers.



  49. 49

    IT'S TRUE.. CHRISTIANS WERE FED TO THE LIONS IN ROME. WHO KNOWS BUT SCIENTOLOGY IS NOT FOR ME. I'M NOT RICH.



  50. 50

    I DON'T LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE ATHEIST IN THIS RELIGION/CULT. WHY NOT LOVE GOD AND BE A SCIENTOLOGIST?



  51. 51

    DID SCIENTOLOGY HELP HER DYING CAREER? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER? I SAW HER ON MY NAME IS EARL AND THAT'S IT. IS SHE A MOM NOW OR A ACTOR STILL?



  52. 52

    Re: Cecilie – AND THE TOOTH FAIRY



  53. 53

    She has a point, America is about religious freedom; I'm a Buddhist and would never say whether my religion rocks or not. The way Scientologists proselytize is as annoying as any group with dogmatic tendencies.



  54. 54

    *ROLLEYES* It's *not* a religion. It's a cult. And it's fucking stupid.



  55. 55

    go jenna!!!!!!



  56. 56

    Does she not realize that all the "amazing" things she has seen can be done in psychotherapy without the brainwashing element?



  57. 57

    well i have studied scientology. i did so for a college thesis paper. i'm here to tell you that scientology is complete scam and a pathetic belief system. have a nice day wacko!



  58. 58

    Scientology is created BY A SCIENCE FICTION WRITER!!! HOW ACCURATE COULD IT BE!.. they all choose to ignore it or not answer the questions directed at it..but alien beliefs that do exist in scientology or so over the top and almost..comic book like its ridiculous! How could anybody believe something like scientology.



  59. 59

    shes cute not fucked in the face like that other bitch on her. i just want to give another fuck you to all the racists on here. Go fuck yourself and eat shit and die.



  60. 60

    I wish people would pick on the freaking fanatic Christians as much as they pick on the Scientologists. Such damn hypocrisy. ALL RELIGIONS ARE CULTS, MORONS!



  61. 61

    Bwahahahahaha…such a typical Tomkat response.



  62. 62

    Re: angelikauri99 – LIKE OMG!!! YOU ARE LIKE SOOO RIGHT!!…..idiot!!!! YES YOU!!!!
    DO YOU KNOW WHY L. RON HUBBARD STARTED THIS RELIGION? HOW CLOSE FRIENDS HE WAS WITH ALLIESTER CROWLEY??!!!!!
    HIS REAL MOTIVES FOR SCIENTOLOGY?? HAVE YOU READ ALL HIS CRAZY BOOKS????
    THE ANSWER IS NO!!!!!!!!!

    BECAUSE IF YOU KNEW-YOU WOULD NOT HAVE WRITTEN THIS BULLSHIT YOU JUST POSTED!!!!



  63. 63

    aww I loved her on Dharma & Greg.
    whatever about Scientology…to each his own.

  64. Wilky says – reply to this


    64

    Give me A BREAK. People are allowed to say whatever they want about whatever they want. Pretty hypocritical of her to say that's ignorant when Scientology is all about 'man freely speaking their minds'.

    Hey man, if you wanna believe in silent births and the possibility of being probed by aliens.. go nuts



  65. 65

    "I've seen drug addicts completely rehabilitated, I've seen the illiterate become literate, I've seen people that were so depressed and hopeless completely rehabilitate their goals in life, become happier, find partners."
    I would be totally amazed if she'd actually seen any of those things happen. My guess is that the "celebrities" in Scientology are kept far away from those nasty little people with problems such as drug addiction or illiteracy. Studies show that neither Narconon nor L. Ron Hubbard's "teaching" principles work. As for people SAYING they feel happier - are you really going to believe a Scientologist when they talk about how great Scientology is?
    Scientology isn't attacked because it's a new religion, it's attacked because it's a harmful and dangerous cult.
    And why would ANYBODY listen to Jenna Elfman about ANYTHING????



  66. 66

    Re: Tara17
    but i don't have enough $$$ to read the text.



  67. 67

    Re: angelikauri99 – the texts are freely available all over the internet. Thank you Anon.

    Hows about you educate yourself, or seek a cult rescue service. I think you might need it.

    Scifag.



  68. 68

    when i saw the church of scientology when i visited san fran, it disgusted me in so many ways. it looks like it cost millions and millions of dollars. they could use that money to help so many people in need.



  69. 69

    Re: SOMETHING SMELLS – OMG! How could I forget!



  70. 70

    Re: amberkitty – Amberkitty, are you on drugs? What do you mean Scientologists besides Kirstie Alley look good??? Let's analyze this. Tom Cruise = went crazy and started jumping on couches and criticizing women's choices for postpartum depression and saying antipsychotics were invented by Nazi's and Hitler and of course he never even graduated high school. John Travolta - the man hasn't worked in how long? Believe me, there's a reason for that too. His on-set behavior became so bizarre and intolerable that no one wanted to work with him. Lisa Marie Presley and Priscilla Presley - just take one look at either of them and you'll know the story. Lisa Marie is HUGE and always looks perpetually angry and unhappy, and Priscilla Presley doesn't even look human now that she obliterated her own face. Giovanni Ribisi no longer seems to get much work. Kirstie Alley is a few hundred pounds and even made a show called "Fat Actress". Despite Scientology's continual obsession with acting like Hollywood is into Scientology, it's actually not. The names listed above are among the few "big name" Scientologists, and look at what happened to each one of them physically, emotionally, and mentally.



  71. 71

    Let me also add what I've personally seen and witnessed. I lived in Hollywood for several years and new some Scientologists. I had one actor friend who was signed to one of the top 10 agencies in the world and they threatened to drop him as a client if he continued his involvement with the cult. I also knew several Scientologists and over the course of a few years, I saw these people change and go crazy, and even knew one woman who lost everything - her career, her family, her money - because she completely lost it. Scientology is some SCARY $hit.



  72. 72

    scientology is gay. very gay.



  73. 73

    Spaceships that look exactly like DC-8s from the 1950s? People stacked up around volcanoes and blown up to create "Body Thetans"? An evil alien overlord by the name of Xenu? What's not to believe people?!! Point me to the closest Church of Scientology and sign me up!!!



  74. 74

    The part they edited>>>I have seen clones in white shirts and khaki pants walking outside the compound in tampa, I have seen famous people fork over millions of dollars without blinking, I have seen ET, Marvin the Martian and Mork from Ork, I can recite every lyric to "Hotel California" I can be rest assured that the contract I signed will really be valid for 1000 years. Don't be fooled by the Helter Skelter in my eyes…I am truly at peace with having people cater to my every whim in order to serve Scientologist and not have to pay that much. "Down with slavery up with domestice servitude" is our Motto



  75. 75

    So you can't get sober or become literate without this BS religion? They sound so elitist you would think they were freakin fundamentalist baptist! They act they are the only ones capable and smart enough to "study texts". Funny thing is most intelligent people who do study them smell the BS a mile away. Its the flaky wannabe's that don't!



  76. 76

    I don't know of any other religion in which they lock up and hold prisoner their own members.



  77. 77

    Let me just call it now….SCIENTOLOGY WILL NEVER BE A RELIGION NOR HAS IT EVER BEEN. Its for people who need something new, who think they will be apart of history as one of the first followers of "the next christianity".

    I respect the freedom to practice your religion but when your leader is a former cult follower and stated that starting a religion is where the money's at…then I have a problem. He writes some influential books with the same charisma as Barack Obama and you people follow WORDS FOR WORD.



  78. 78

    WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ALIENS THAT TAKE YOUR SOULS TO THE MOVIES AND MAKE YOU PAY TO HAVE THE ALIEN SOULS REMOVED AND AN ALIEN LEADER WHO IS LOCKED UP IN A PLANET FAR FAR AWAY…ITS JUST SOOOO CRAZY THAT ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD BUY THIS SHIT. BUT THE SCIENTOLOGY LEADERS KNOW THIS, SO FOR YOU TO JOIN YOU CANT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEIR BELIEFS. INSTEAD YOU MUST INVEST THOUSANDS FOR YEARS UNTIL ALLOWED TO FIND OUT THAT THERE ARE ALIENS AND BRAINWASHING INVOLVED BUT BY THEN YOUVE SPENT SO MUCH MONEY, YOU DONT WANT TO GIVE IT UP. AND I LOVE THE PEOPLE THAT SAY ITS SAVED THEM AND CHANGED THIER LIVES. THE WRITINGS OF A LUNATIC IS ALL YOU NEED TO SAVE YOUR LIFE THEN YOU HAVE BIGGER PROBLEMS THE LACK OF SPIRITUALITY. WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE IN…ITS SHOULD MAKE SENSE.



  79. 79

    A belief in a god, I won't criticize, but religion, I will. Religion is man-made, and is expressly for the purpose of control of people. Elfman forgot to mention all the money they suck out of them, in order for them to ascend to higher levels in the church. It's so absurd. Plus, the founder was a science fiction writer.



  80. 80

    i've studied the text and all that
    and still is crazy
