Danny Masterson is awfully passionate about Scientology!
In an interview with Paper magazine published on Wednesday, the former That 70's Show star and believer in the religion was asked at the Sundance Film Festival about the controversial documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

And boy, did he not mince words!
The 38-year-old's views regarding the film were… honest, to say the least:
"I heard about that documentary; the documentary where they interviewed eight people who hate Scientology. Should be pretty interesting. I wonder if Sundance would allow a documentary of, like, eight people who hate Judaism. But you know, my religion's fair game, I guess, ’cause it's new."
The comedic actor has been a practicing member since he was eight years old and says it is difficult to describe the faith — which is based on the founder L. Ron Hubbard's book Dianetics — but summarizes it as:
"Everything in Scientology is just based on logic… the word Scientology means the study of knowledge."
Despite the backlash, Ashton Kutcher's friend isn't embarrassed about dishing on his philosophies.
"I love doing it and have no problem doing it… I work, I have a family and I'm a spiritual being who likes to understand why things happen in the world and want to learn more so that I can have them not affect me adversely."
And what does he have to say about the religion's haters?
"Well, you can go f—k yourself."
Well Mr. Masterson, your views are clear as day!
