Well, if she's gonna turn to anyone, we totally expect it to be the "consciously uncoupling" star!
Because, DUH! Who better to understand Beyoncé's pain than the Goop author?!
Scientology backed Prop 8!
Crash director Paul Haggis has left the Church of Scientology after being fed up with the church's support of California's Proposition 8 banning gay marriage.
He and his wife, actress Deborah Rennard, were both practicing Scientologists after his in-laws introduced them to the church. Apparently, though, his wife's parents committed a violation of some sort within the church and Haggis and his wife were ordered to break contact with them.
Obviously this was a tumultuous time in their family and Haggis had enough of the "church" BS!
In a strongly-worded letter to Scientology spokesperson, Tommy Davis, Haggis explains his decision:
"And so, after writing this letter, I am fully aware that some of my friends may choose to no longer associate with me, or in some cases work with me…However, I have finally come to the conclusion that I can no longer be a part of this group. Frankly, I had to look no further than your refusal to denounce the church’s anti-gay stance, and the indefensible actions, and inactions, of those who condone this behavior within the organization. I am only ashamed that I waited this many months to act. I hereby resign my membership in the Church of Scientology."
We wonder what the other celebrity Scientologists have to say for themselves?
