I don't want a debate either and as you can see this thread has already popped up some ugly posts by others.
You are absolutely right. I didn't mean to offend you and my comments are based on hear-say. Of course I don't think less of you now. I'm a really big fan of your work and wouldn't let something like your personal beliefs get in the way of that. Once again, I gotta apologize for the ignorant comments. I'm not bummed (just a little small-minded sometimes). Thanks for the post, keep up the good work.

: : I know what you mean. Scientology seems like a scary cult-type
: thing & I was disappointed to hear that our man Lee is wrapped up in
: that racket.
: : Travolta is a freak.

: We've all been through this before. I don't want to get into a
: Scientology debate on Kevin's board, but please, show some
: respect. Scientology is a religion. Think about how that could be
: offensive to me, you being 'bummed'. Are you not going to watch my
: movies now? Am I not as cool anymore? Am I no longer that cool guy
: that comes to the board all the time to chat with all the cool people of
: the viewaskewniverse? Would you be 'bummed' if you found out I was
: Jewish? You may not think of it as being the same, but it is. Thanks
: for listening.

: Jason.
: :
: : It seems like every actor that gets remotely famous gets into
: Scientology, I really don't understand it. Sure if you chose a
: religion/belief because you feel it is right for you after investigation
: then kudos, yet it seems like a secret society is going on ("hold it
: sir/maam, you made 3 films? yep ok your in, read Diantetics & here's
: your E-meter") in Hollywood.

: : : I can respect other's beliefs, but from what I've seen Scientology
: can be dangerous (Lisa McPherson - see link, and on a lesser
: degree Tom & Nicole).

: : : This message is for Jason Lee only, whatever path you chose
: Jason just do it safely dude, and if after clicking on the link below you
: feel comfortable being a Scientologist then kudos to you, but at least
: read Lisa's unfortunate story and see if it in any way compares to your
: life.
