Ex-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.
