    Default Ex-Scientologist/Hollywood actor slams Scientology

    The actor's name is Jason Beghe. He's hardly a household name but I do recognize his face.

    I don't recognize his name or face. Looking at his IMDB profile, seems like he did mainly tv.

    Shouldn't this be in the regular gossip section?

    FOXNews.com - Television Star Exits Scientology - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment

    Ruggedly handsome actor Jason Beghe was best man at the wedding of "X Files" star David Duchovny (his childhood pal) and actress Tea Leoni. In 1998, he starred as Demi Moore’s love interest in “G.I. Jane.” He’s been featured in numerous TV dramas such as 'Criminal Minds,' 'Numb3rs', and 'CSI.'

    In 2005, Beghe appeared in promotional spots for the Church of Scientology.

    But now Beghe has escaped the Church after taking courses since 1994. He’s made a video that’s up on YouTube.

    This is what he has to say: “Scientology is destructive and a rip off.”

    He also says: “It’s very, very dangerous for your spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional health and evolution. I think it stunts your evolution. If Scientology is real, then something’s f——ed up.”

    You can see from the video that Beghe does not mince words. But his refreshing candor about the religion he joined in 1994 should shake the Celebrity Center to its core.

    “It ain’t deliverin’ what it’s promised. It sure has not. “

    The video is billed as a three-minute teaser to a longer interview with Beghe that’s on its way. But the short video packs a powerful punch. Beghe still uses a lot of Scientology lingo like “OT” and “clear.” Still, it’s quite easy to understand the point he’s making. After 14 years and a tremendous amount of money, he’s seeing Scientology in a different light.

    Beghe has completed so many courses that he’s considered a top Scientologist, or “OT 5”—similar to Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. But Beghe reveals: “The further up the bridge the worse you get.”

    He adds: “I don’t have an agenda. I’m just trying to help. I have the luxury of having gotten into Scientology and after having been in it, been out. And that’s a perspective that people who are still in and not out do not have.”

    More to come…

    ^^OMG! Yes!!! Melrose place!


    At least this guy is talking about it. I think John Travolta and other celebs...maybe even Cruise are just way to deep into the CO$ black hole that it would be just too embarassing for them to suddenley change their minds and leave the church.

    Wow, this guy has balls of steel. I'm glad he's speaking out, but I hope no harm will come to him because of it.

    And his "suicide" will be announced in 2 weeks or 3?

    A prominent dissenter's "suicide" or "fatal accident" would just draw more negative attention to Co$. I would think they're smart enough to let this one go.

    You give them too much credit. I'll take suicide in 3 weeks for $50 Bob.

    Evidently whatever they had on him wasn't worth hiding anymore.

    CO$ are smart about their hits. The "suicides" associated with Tom Cruise didn't happen right away. They'll give this guy time on his own. I predict in maybe a year or so there will be a tragic "car accident"

    It must be bitching insane to admit you were brainwashed and went for the whole 9 yards....

    Who knows maybe he will survive...
