In light of Jeremy Blake's body having been discovered and the possibility that he and Theresa Duncan's deaths were instigated by Scientology harassments, here is some more Scientology madness for you:
* Dlisted via Katy.
Amistead Maupin is a great author (loved the Tales of the City) - but sure as heck doesn't know much about Scientology.
I have several gay Scientologist friends.
There is no "ex-gay" aspect to Scientology. It is open to all peoples, regardless of gender, color, faith or orientation. It is a very inclusive spiritual movement, and not concerned with sexuality at all.
I really don't know where this is coming from - I think it might have just been a joke for a cheap laugh.
Scientologist and proud of it
AH.com: Woah. A real live Scientologist! I'm too weirded out and shocked to respond further...
Armistead Maupin is wildly mistaken and passed on rumors as if they were fact. What a load of crap! These rumors are as vicious as the ones spread by homophobes about gay and lesbians.
I have known many gay (and one transsexual) Scientologists over the years.
And nobody tape-records auditing sessions for use against people later.
Get to know some Scientologists (it's not hard) and you'll stop believing the lies.
Another Scientologist - and just as proud.
AH.com: There's usually a reason "rumors" abound, Jere...
Armi, that's icky!
Are you that hungry for attention that you stoop to snide surmises about celebrities' bedroom habits to get laughs?
How do you win by attempting to assassinate others' characters? That's toxic. Why so interested in others' sexuality? Off-limits, dude. MYOB. What is your agenda?
Have you now applied that wonderful imagination to Scientology? You made up a hell of a story. But it's your worst fiction.
And very off-putting. I've now changed my opinion about you, as I did about Jeffrey Archer when he showed easy ethics by getting into trouble with the law on taxes and sex.
So much for the halo-effect of being able to write. It doesn't make one ethical or decent. Silly me. I thought writing required honesty.
I wish your true colors had stayed in the closet.
