Scientology Gathers Celebrities—To Raise Funds for Church?

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on August 7, 2011 0 Comments

Celebrities gathered at the Scientology Celebrity Centre on Saturday to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the controversial church. Was this an effort to raise money for the church or simply a gathering of the church’s elite?

According to RadarOnline, the church has been targeted recently for a variety of unsavory reasons, which church leaders say aren’t true. A recent book that divulges many of their supposed secrets is deemed to be “full of inaccuracies.”

So what’s the deal with all these celebrities and Scientology? Everyone knows that John Travolta and Kelly Preston are members. Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes are, too—although they were conspicuously absent from Saturday’s event. That probably has something to do with the fact that Cruise has been named in some of the most recent controversy.

The Scientology Celebrity Centre was filled to the brim with wealthy celebrities Saturday, including Jenna and Bodhi Elfman, Anne Archer, Jason Lee, Priscilla Presley, Erika Christensen, and Juliette Lewis—to name just a few.

What do you suppose is behind this “celebrity centre,” and is it designed to bring money into the Church of Scientology? Have you ever heard of any other religion touting a celebrity centre?

It would be interesting to find out the real deal, and what went all among all these celebrities this past Saturday night. Were they merely socializing as part of their church, or is there more to the story?
