WILL SMITH INSISTS HE IS NOT A SCIENTOLOGIST
Will Smith must be getting worried that his connection to Scientology might be damaging his career or turning off his fans. On Monday the LA anti-Scientology group Anonymous
was picketing the Scientology linked school (called the New Village Leadership Academy) that Will is opening. The school admits to using L Ron Hubbard’s
“Study Tech” method for educating kids. Imagine the protesters surprise when Will showed up in person to chat with them! Will stated firmly “I am NOT a Scientologist.” Will went on to say that his son used the Scientology Study Tech method to learn to read and he became an avid reader, so Will likes the technique. The Anon people pointed out that using the study technique glorified Hubbard and Scientology. Will declared that his school had NO religious agenda and he would look into concerns brought up by protesters. Will admitted he didn’t know if the school was paying Scientology to use the teaching technique. The Anonymous group was favorably impressed with his earnest tone, but they remain vigilant. WE think that Tom Cruise’s
buddy Jada Pinkett Smith
is pulling the strings behind the scenes here, and that SHE is committed to Scientology more than Will.
