    Default Kirstie Alley attacks Rolling Stone Scientology article and writer.

    Don't want a nastygram? Don't investigate Jenny Craig pitchwoman Kirstie Alley's religion.

    "Shame on you, Rolling Stone, for your slam piece on Scientology," the 55-year-old actress flames about Janet Reitman's recent 13,500-word report on the belief system founded by L. Ron Hubbard. "Rolling Stone has been my favorite magazine since college, but come on — religion-bashing for the sake of sales? Yikes, dudes — your cool factor just dropped to Reader's Digest."

    Alley slags off Reitman, "who interviewed me for two hours as I watched her eyes darting around in her head like a trapped lab rat: Janet, dear, people like you will always bastardize good things like religion. ... That's why you exist, honey. My problem with your article was its degree of boredom."

    Reitman, who toiled for nine months with the cooperation of churchofficials, retorts: "Alley's letter perfectly exemplifies why the Church of Scientology has an image problem — rather than debate points of substance, its followers all too often veer into personal attacks. Alley is one of the church's most prominent and spiritually advanced members. Yet this is all she can think of to say? Yikes, indeed."

    Ohhh...it looks like L.Ron wannabes are feeling just a wee bit defensive.

    Here's the article, as well as a companion one, for those interested:

    Next time Alley sees the reporter she'll smother her.

    These Scientologist celebs whenever they open their stupid mouths are just helping dig the graves of their "religion" and their own careers.

    Wasn't this "religion" created because of the tax benefits? Fine religious foundation indeed

    I still don't understand why all of the sudden they are saying anything? There has been articles and stories about the cult, I mean, religion before.

    They're on the defense because it's getting more and more evident that $cientology is downright disturbing to the general public.

    Yes, religion (such as it is) should be exempt from criticism on the faulty premise that it is simply "good".

    Religion sure has done a lot of "good" for the world.. I mean, the crusades were "good", and the inquisition too.. and hey, who doesn't like slavery and stoning people to death? That's fucking AWESOME.

    Scientologists never debate points, they always attack. They are trained to attack anybody who questions them as part of their "Fair Game Law".

    That people know what they're getting into? To show the opposite of what the fundies say their religion is all about? To show all the stuff they don't want potential new recruits to see?

    They should do it for EVERY religion.

    That article was about as fair as it could be. I was hoping they did bash them a bit more but the writer seemed fairly reserved and tried to present both sides IMO. It is ironic to me that their religious leaders openly attack anyone who disagrees. The argument has been made that they aren't much different than other organized religions. However, it's rare that you hear another religious leader make personal attacks, used foul language in interviews or statements. And you sure don't find that you are kept in a religion because the leaders have secrets about you.

    I thought Kirstie Alley had a falling out with the church because they told her vitamins would cure her weight issues.

    A sure sign of a good journalist. And actually, I think Kirsty lost the weight by either hitting the coke spoon again or popping massive amounts of pills, probably called vitamins by the L. Ron wannabes.
