Television Star Exits Scientology
FOx ^ | April 15, 2008 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 04/16/2008 10:04:17 AM PDT by ZGuy

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."

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."

It’s interesting that this is being covered on FOX News, since Greta Von Sustern is a Scientologist.

I think Mr. Jason thinks of all the hard earned money he’s dumped into this cesspool, and winces.

The day he gets his money back will be the same day I walk across Chesapeake Bay - on the water.

Good to hear someone left this cult alive. More people escape islam every day than escape Scientology in any given year.

It’s been interesting to watch her coverage of the FLDS in Texas. She is very reticent to say anything critical of their beliefs. She does make a face now and then to let us know how she feels, but that’s it.

So long as religion enjoys outstanding tax benefits, people will look for opportunities to categorize their activities as “religion”.

Catherine Bell needs to be next to leave that cult. I think she would make a great Catholic. I'd even volunteer to help her.

Isn’t Greta Von Sustern just a talking head? Is she in the editorial/news division that OK’s what’s broadcast?

Heck, her boss Roger Ailes is one of them.
