TV star calls Scientology “destructive”

Jason Beghe YouTube videoEx-Scientologist Jason Beghe, who stars in the TV series Cane has slammed the controversial Church of Scientology. The actor, who has also had regular roles in Everwood and American Dreams, began taking Scientology courses in 1994, and by 2005, was considered a ‘top Scientologist’ or ‘OT5,’ a rank similar to Tom Cruise’s standing in the church. However, he now denounces the faith in a video on YouTube.com. Beghe says, “Scientology is destructive and a rip-off. It’s very, very dangerous for your spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional health and evolution. I think it stunts your evolution. If Scientology is real, then something’s f**ked up. It ain’t deliverin’ what it’s promised. It is not.” Towards the end of the tape, he adds, “I have the luxury of having gotten into Scientology and after having been in it, been out. And that’s a perspective that people who are still in and not out do not have.” Watch the full video here.

    who in their right mind is going to believe that aliens put us here? heck who in the LEFT mind would think that either? Tom needs to go to a real church and get exorcised. and now i must go back to my cave at the center of the earth with the rest of my kind where we will wait patiently until it is time to send out our next science project to cover the face of the earth!

    Expect the heavy duty brainwashing to begin. Hope her parents have brought her home to give her a chance to rediscover her brain and independence.

    Does this mean we can expect Tom to go on Oprah and cry on her shoulder?

    He might. He may also jump all over her sofa.

    Poor little Suri. Even if they do split, she’s going to be brainwashed, just like his other two kids. Such a shame, too bad they wouldn’t consider that child abuse and force him to keep away from her.
