did you ever see that scientology movie john travolta was in? Battlefield Earth...omg it was so bad! no i didn't watch it in its entirety. as soon as i caught wind of the propaganda i shut it off.
here's a quote from wikipedia
"Battlefield Earth was released on May 12, 2000. The film was a major commercial failure and critical flop and has been widely acknowledged as being one of the worst films ever made.[5][6]"

LMAO!!  I remember that movie!  Reluctantly, though, you're right it was awful...awful stupid too.  I loved Travolta when he was a sweat hog, but much like cruise, he's just getting crazier as he gets older.

frankly i was embarrassed for john 'revolta' - even though he isn't a great actor by any standards, he certainly wouldn't have won any awards with his performance in that movie lol

Well, I for one do not believe at all in Scientology. Although, I will respect other's belief in it, for it is their right, as I want others to respect my right to my belief, or lack there of. Anyways, I do read the Lee Child 'Jack Reacher' novels, and you are on the money with your remark. I will not see it. Despite the fact, it dropped the particular novel's original title, that the movie is taking it from, that book has Jack Reacher's six foot height as part of the plot, and Tom Cruise does not, excuse the pun, measure up to Jack Reacher. I have my pick's who could play Reacher, Cruise would be my last pick, or no pick at all. As for him getting the part, I wonder about that too. Nevertheless, I will not see the film because of this. I am a bookseller, and I get the same feelings from customers who are also fans of the Lee Child's books. His scientology does not play into our feelings in this.

I would generally agree with you, but, when a 'religion' has people killed or harrassed because they disagree with their religion or have quit their reilgion, then, yes, I do judge them.  also, the deaths their 'cleansing' has caused is absolutely horrible, I really don't understand why they haven't been investigated and charged.

Don't get me wrong, I don't approve of that either. It could be I don't usually research this religion, and/or not getting enough information, but I don't usually hear about that. I think I remember reading something sometime back, but that's it. That is not to say, I don't believe you, I just haven't heard it myself, and what you post is some FIY for me. Frankly, I have heard this happening to various folks who have various religions, here and there.
I agree with you, if they are doing this, and I'm not doubting you that they are, that is dispicable. Frankly, anytime care is denied a person, because of the family's belief, I think that is wrong. Chasing a person down and hurting them, because they left, is also wrong. Really, why? Shows me some people are not self assured in their religion and that they believe it's wrong, if they have to chase people who are leaving.
  I pretty much question Jett Travolta's death, but is that for me to do so?
