Once one of the more visible followers of the Thetan fun time religious cult known as Scientology (he reportedly “disconnected” with a wife over his former faith), Jason Lee has revealed that he is no longer on board L. Ron Hubbard’s volcano spaceship. In an interview with Denton, Texas’ culture blog The Dentonite, Jason let it slip that he doesn’t have to pretend like Tom Cruise is a god of wisdom anywhere. He can openly be glib!

t sounds like there’s some Mallrats nay-sayers amongst Denton’s social scene. They should chill, because Jason could have brought Anne Archer and the rest of the L. Ron Hubbard stans and Denton could have ended up like Clearwater, Florida. THAT town is HQ for the Tom Cruise Church of Present-Day Taints!

This is good news for Lee. Because anyone who would named their son Pilot Inspektor sounds like they might like to have fun now and then. Scientologists sound like they don’t have a lot of time for fun what with the having to fork over huge amounts of $$$ to the church, strangely ignoring/worshipping crying children on bathroom floors, and contending with deluded neckbeards like Danny Masterson.

Former high-ranking Scientologist Chris Shelton said the church has been skeptical of celebrity endorsements since Tom Cruise’s media whirlwind in 2005, when he infamously jumped on Oprah Winfrey’s couch, and had a painful interview with Matt Lauer.

“They made a tactical decision to not use a celebrity to endorse the church,” Shelton said. “They made a decision to put a muzzle on them. We haven’t seen a prominent celeb in at least five to seven years. Tom Cruise wanted to be the savior of Scientology, but instead convinced everybody he was nuts.”

Shelton said Lee had no choice but to publicly deny the rumors he was starting a Scientology facility in his new home state.

“I feel like Jason Lee left (the church) a while ago, and started a new life and finally felt safe to say he left,” Shelton said. “He had to say that so people knew he wasn’t a part of the religion anymore.”

It's always nice to be properly quoted in an article for what I actually DID say and not for what I never said or inferred, LOL. :coolwink:
