Guenther Oettinger, in the governor of Baden-Wuerttemberg and he just had to try to force a local TV show from have John Travolta on as a guest. "By inviting Mr. Travolta to appear on your show, you're offering this organization a platform to address millions of viewers," Oettinger was quoted as saying in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. "Mr. Travolta is a well-known member of that organization, which has only recently opened a new office here, and many people, parents in particular, are concerned about Scientologists and their aims."

Now, I know these aims run counter to some of the ideals of Germany:

"A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology."

I'm just not sure which of these aims are antipathetic to the German construct. Is it that they want insanity? Is it criminals they prefer? I don't think so. Maybe it's war. Now that's a possible. Honest beings able to rise to greater heights? That's probably what it is. Having been fixated with creating or being supermen under Hitler they want to prevent anyone excelling or living up to their true potential? Even that I can't believe.

No. It's more like they don't really oppose the aims of the Scientology religion. They've just bought nonsense being pushed out on what Scientology really is.

Now you don't suppose its psychiatry and Big Pharma, do you? I guess they do have a stake on increasing so-called insanity, by being paid to dole out the latest designer meds.

It couldn't been that the drug companies are profiting off keeping people in jail could it?

Travolta is Back - and Then some

Wild Hogs was the surprise hit of the season, and irrepressible JT is off and running again!

The Daily Record of Scotland put it this way:


I am always happy to see John Travolta do well. He is such a genuinely nice man, and he obviously enjoys himself so much. And what a lovely family! Good to hear he and Kelly are planning to have a third child. Good luck to them!

David Miscavige

Usually when you think of "Scientology celebrities" you think Tom Cruise, John Travolta, maybe Jenna Elfman or, if you are an online yellow journalist, you speculate about JLO and Penelope Cruz. But one Scientologist who you may not think of in the same terms is David Miscavige.

David Miscavige is the Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center, the senior ecclexiastical leader of the Scientology religion.

And what a leader he is!

Did the Press Lie?

Last year the press made a big deal out of some comments made by Sumner Redstone, the head of Viacom (owners of Paramount Pictures). They implied he was attacking Tom Cruise. Now Redstone has said to People Magazine: "What happened was, I just gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal. In the course of it, they asked me what was going on. I said, 'You know, he would no longer be in the lot,'" Redstone told the magazine. "They treated that like I was firing him. I didn't fire him! I had nothing to do with it. But they treated it explosively. And I didn't like it."

Hmmmm, don't tell me the press got it wrong. Is it possible that the media wanted to pretend there was a controversy when there wasn't? Is it possible they created the whole story because they thought it would sell more papers? Well, all I can say is that when you read or watch the news be very careful about what you believe because time and again you later find out that things weren't the way the press portrayed them.
