SEXY starlet Jenna Elfman has gotten so deeply into Scientology that her main goal these days is to help it take over the world. Scientology "is a complete understanding of what is happening on the planet right now," Elfman, best known for her role on "Dharma & Greg," told Scientology magazine Celebrity. She boasts that she's on the second-to-last "Operating Thetan" or "OT" level in the organization's hierarchy.
Elfman says you must devote yourself to Scientology or "you could be dead." Fellow celeb Scientologists include Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Lisa Marie Presley.
Scientologists who reach "OT 3" are told about "Xenu," a galactic ruler who paralyzed humans and sent them back to Earth in spaceships 75 million years ago, reports CultNews.com, which closely follows the faith. They were then arranged around a volcano and murdered with H-bombs, but their souls are still hanging around and are known as "Body Thetans" or "BTs."
Scientology devotees pay big bucks to "clear" themselves of the BTs' negative influence through a series of costly courses. Elfman tells the magazine her "duty" is now to help "clear the planet." She declares, "I intend to make Scientology as accessible to as many people as I can, and that is my goal."
Elfman's career hasn't exactly taken off like Xenu's spaceship, however. Since "Dharma & Greg" was canceled, she's appeared in a series of flops. This she seems to attribute to what Scientologists call "Suppressive People" or "SPs."
"The more successful I became, the more suppression I bumped into," Elfman says. "Especially in the entertainment industry, which is really home to rabid suppression . . . I don't have time as a leader, as an OT and as an artist to be suppressed.

Scientology is further proof that PT Barnum was right.
I tried reading Dianetics in college. Read 80 pages then decided to use the book to replace a missing foot on my old couch.
You just know L Ron Hubbard just had to be thinking to himself, "these suckers actually bought it?!?"
She's a fool. Apparently, she does not realize that she lives in a bathtub, serving as a living battery for the machines which took over the planet several hundred years ago. I guess she missed the memo.
To loosly quote Niven & Pournelle, there is a special place in Hell for Science Fiction writers who invent their own religions.
That's no moon, it's a space station...
In other words, her career has completely tanked and she needs a distraction other than selling hair-care products on QVC, because that sort of livelihood just doesn't allow one to be sufficiently self-righteous.
What a dufas. Dharma and Greg sucks anyways; it's an unwanted interruption between King of the Hill episodes.
Hubbards been dead for a while, but when he was alive he was famously quoted as saying "the quickest way for someone to get rich would be to start your own religion."

She could make good $$$ as a stripper.
great...but now this article just TOLD ME about "Xenu"...spoiling the whole thing. why would I bother reaching "OT3" now? (snicker) My mother-in-law used to do that with movies, "and you'd never guess that it was the NEIGHBOR who killed him".
I have heard the whole thing started as a bet with Asimov that he could start a religion - and he did.
Well, the NY Post saved you thousands of $$$, and you won't have to be brainwashed.
And I still think Jenna Elfman is NOT a hottie--too ditzy, too many teeth. She's blonde and skinny--is that all it takes for someone to be considered hot? (Sarah Jessica Parker, for example--blech!)
Never heard of it.
.......She declares, "I intend to make Scientology as accessible to as many people as I can, and that is my goal.".......
Don't do us any favors, babe. Okay?
Comely lasses are welcome to join.
Too bad she is such an idiot, 'cause she is a hottie...
Yeah, but the dingbat DNA jumped into the gene pool...
Hey, you can run your own prostitution website, like that Gannon fellow....
Well, go for it then. You might getta meet John Travolta...

It was a stupid show, and she's proven that she's as vapid as the program.
Suddenly, Heavens Gate seem more main stream.
I take it Fierro is a lawyer? He must have thick skin to be in this forum!!!
You'll love it. It's a way of life.
marteen and i both have rhino hides. they issue them with the JD.... : )
So we have both Rhino hides and sheepskins.
Alot of lawyers are sensitive to lawyer bashing (usually deserved). Well, I guess you & Martin can jointly operate your suggested website. ;O]
I might have to join!
" I don't have time as a leader, as an OT and as an artist to be suppressed."
He he he! What a whackjob! I think she's gonna have to find some time to be DE-pressed, because she might be to far in orbit for even Hollywierd!
Blech! What a mutt. No, I'm not kidding. She's very unattractive. Of course we're talking personal opinion, but she looks like one of those popcorn brains who never shuts up on a date.
You need glasses
All right, I'll say it, she's an alien! :P
I'm neither hot nor bothered. Just stating the facts.
An opinion is not a fact, dude--including yours. Get over yourself. Later.
Most people's aren't, mine are. ;^]
Well I'll say this about Applewhite, at least he really believed in what he was saying, whereas Hubbard was just a huckster looking to make a buck.
Ellison also fell for the claims of Chevron F310 (the car idling in the clear balloon)....
I have no idea what you mean.
At the time Ellison was writing a column in what was called the Los Angeles Free Press, something I imagine was along the lines of the hippie rags you can pick up nowadays while going out the door of Tower Records.
Ellison was naïve enough to fall for it, and recommended it to all his readers and friends, and was rightfully hammered for it. Ellisons a helluva writer, but hes only human, and he could be had. (I think he exhibited the same naïveté over Hubbard).
You can read it in The Other Glass Teat ( beginning in column 54, dated 2/20/70).
Despite his political bent, Ellison could many times be spot-on about Television, and for me his piece about sordid beauty pageants and little girls (column 77, dated 9/4/70) became synonymous after the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.
You were merely informed of the existance of Xenu. To properly know Xenu you must do the work. Nothing in this life, even Scientology, comes easy.
not true. I find making snide comments on news forums comes very easily to me. see?
;) (i just love fridays...)
