: I'm usually very cool about talking openly about my personal beliefs,
: etc...but, no offense, I think you may have gone a bit too far here.
: Again, I'm always open, but to tell me to take whatever path I wish to
: take safely is a warning that I do not need. I'm not in any way
: questioning your intentions, I'm merely saying it's not needed. I
: started studying Scientology years before I became an actor.
: Scientology isn't just a "Hollywood religion", it's worldwide, and not
: just for actors. I don't feel that actors are being pulled into it because

: 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

: : 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

: read Lisa's unfortunate story and see if it in any way compares to your
