Just like the rest of you, we were disappointed to learn that “Mad Men’sElizabeth Moss (she plays Peggy) is a Scientologist. Not as disappointed, of course, as her soon-to-be exhusband “Saturday Night Live” comic Fred Armisen. Friends speculate that it was Scientology that broke up the pair in their first year of marriage – Fred just didn’t cooperate with the so-called church. Since the split, Fred has happily moved on and started dating SNL costar Abby Elliott, and presumably Elizabeth is searching the Scientology Celebrity Center for a suitable mate.

    Scientology is amazingly stupid and I am always amazed when I hear about seemingly rational people buying into their ridculous load of BS. But then people in the entertainment world are so needy and insecure. Maybe Zenu and the Thetans, lost souls in volcanoes and all that other silliness appeals to them.

    Bob S., I agree with you 100%!

    Fred is one smart cookie for getting the hell out of dodge. IF Elizabeth comes up with enough cash, she will find another lost soul who is in SCI, pool their money to give to it, and dig themselves in to a lower part of hell. All those in Scientology are embiciles: Kirstie Alley, Priscilla and LisaMarie Presley, John Revolting, and the biggest (littlest) of all, the Cruise-Meister.

    Don’t worry about Elizabeth. The Church will find some nice closet queer for her to marry. No boning from hubby, and she will have to carry L. Ron’s next baby, but she will always have fabulous shoes.

    Nailed it Bob S., all you got to do is come up with an idea about a fake church and tell the celebs they get special treatment and they’ll fall for anything.

    The Scientologist’s beliefs are pretty unusual in detail, but in principle they are really not all that weirder than those of other religions. As someone raised as a Catholic – in a more enlightened period – on some level I do not see, say, any Protestant church as any less bananas than the Church of Scientology.

    you reckognise the MENTAL DISSEASE in their eyes too?

    They split cause he couldn’t deal with her religious beliefs? They both should have thought about that before exchanging vows. He knew what he was getting into before he said “I DO”. Also from many reports and stories about $cientology, didn’t he know that both partners must be members? You never ever see a $cientologist marry a non member. That’s why Kirstie Alley’s marriage to Parker Stevenson failed cause he wouldn’t convert.

    Bob, I think it appeals to them because they treat celebs differently than they do regular folks. It seems as if they treat celebs like royalty in exchange for their generous donations and promotion.

    Sally, they treat the rich and famous differently because of their generous donations and promotion? Pretty standard church practice regardless of the denomination. Look at Mel Gibson. Has the Catholic church done anything serious to chastize him for his inflammatory comments and behavior?

    Scientology may wreck a marriage or two but it works wonders for one’s career.

    I recognize this actress from the excerderin pain medication commercials.

    I find this young woman is singularly annoying and unattractive.

    Her alliance to Scientology is the only explanation I can think of to explain her success.

    When religion interferes, shit happens. Just take a look around.

    Many people keep themselves hidden until signing on the dotted line. Ask any married person, and you will find out all the disgusting personal habits, anger issues, etc. that suddenly surfaces with the partner. Elizabeth kept her Scientology connection on the down-low until she hooked herself a man, then hoped for the best.

    Good for Fred for getting out before they destroyed him.

    XYZ, I agree with you there.

    I agree they should have figured this one out before they got married…maybe they DID asnd it’s some other reason they’re splitting.
    I happen to think the same way Bill Maher does in that ALL organized “religions” are a bad idea and hurt people individually, and as a society, let alone the world over. What we continue to have over decades and centuries is horrible wars and destruction in the name of religions and religious differences that will never coexist. It’s a major recipe for disaster, whether in a persons home life or spread over two continents.

    Why does Scientology attract so many closet cases? what are they offering them?

    UBC, The Church of Scientology claims to be able to cure homosexuality. It obviously never does (see Travolta). Thing is that part of the process of joining The Church is auditing, a kind of therapy, part of which involves going through all – ALL – your sexual relationships to that point.

    So, some homosexuals with money/power/fame joing The Church hoping to be cured, get audited, are not cured, and then are trapped – if they leave The Church, or turn on it, they will be exposed.

    Why The Church of Scientology? Well, the only other people who say there is a cure for homosexuality are crazy Born Again types. While being gay may not go down well with the general public, being a bible thumper would not go down well with the movers and shakers in Hollywood.

    I think what he didn’t realize was that it would just take over his life like the plague. These fake religious are all about money and promotions.

    Scientology is attractive because…sorry to kick your soapbox out from under you…it works. I have an amazing marriage because I use it, and your head can explode ten thousand times vigorously attempting to refute that (“no, it just CAN’T be true!”) but – alas – it is. We are complimented frequently, enjoy one another, keep our relationship strong and meaningful and it’s all in the context of things learned in Scientology.

    I haven’t been around the church “proper” for quite some time (off doing other things), but Scientology as a subject and a collection of methods of living far better than most are used to in an inner-game sense.

    The twisted, strange imagery of insignificant little corners of the subject (subsequently grabbed, inflated from molehill to mountain and heralded far and wide) are so silly and so non-integral to the subject itself that it absolutely beggars belief. Heck, prove it to yourself: ask any apostate that was in the church who is reasonable and honest (they exist) and they will tell you the same thing. All the “weird” stuff – all told – is really an extremely minor blip on a far larger map amongst people who believe we live more than once. Just like Buddhists do. Or Hindus.

    The hatred is a result of a shit-ton of “not seeing.” Opaqueness. You are not getting your information from the man on the street using the stuff. Believe me or don’t, but it’s helpful, useful and very life-improving stuff.

    On a final note, I harbor no ill will towards a single one of you. I simply see you as people who have chosen to accept an extraordinarily limited set of highly distorted, very much at-arms-length information. And then go prance around on the internet with it printed on giant neon banners.

    Keep going if you wish, but just know that it’s not the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
