    Leah Remini Calls ‘Bullsh*t’ on the LAPD and Danny Masterson

    The Scientology whistleblower says there may be a reason the LAPD’s investigations of sexual misconduct allegations against Danny Masterson have stalled: cozy ties with the Church. Last week, The Daily Beast published a statement from Chrissie Carnell Bixler, one of at least four women who is accusing the actor Danny Masterson of rape. Bixler, 39, alleges that when she reported her rape to officials at the Church of Scientology, which at the time counted her and Masterson as members, she was “made to feel like I didn’t matter,” and was told that she couldn’t have been raped by a man she was in a relationship with.

Scientology is a group with a hierarchy, an unverifiable creation story and the capacity to bring comfort to those who adhere to it. There is an irony that the founders of our country, while nominally often Christians, espoused deism, which was open to the discoveries of science prevailing over ancient myths. If we accept religion as that which is protected by our 1st Amendment, surely atheism is the legitimate successor to what the founders might have had in mind in 1790. Yet, to fight atheistic communism...

    Isaac Hayes’s Son Claims His Father Didn’t Quit South Park in Protest Over That Scientology Episode, Someone Quit for Him

    Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park; someone quit South Park for him. What happened was that in January 2006 my dad had a stroke and lost the ability to speak. He really didn't have that much comprehension, and he had to relearn to play the piano and a lot of different things. He was in no position to resign under his own knowledge. At the time, everybody around my father was involved in Scientology — his assistants, the core group people. So someone quit South Park on Isaac Hayes's behalf. We don't know who.

That was all according to plan, Theroux told me this weekend in an interview. “My dream was that they’d come after me,” he said.
