BELIEVE me, I am NOT bummed. It's understandable, there was a
time years ago when I just couldn't understand Scientology myself.
I'm a very open person, and based on your posts, I see that you are
too. MUCH appreciated. Thanks.
I feel really crappy that I finally got the chance to interact with you on
the board and I end up looking like an ignorant person. I really try to
be open-minded and I just couldn't feel worse about this. At any rate,
I have nothing but the highest respect for you and your films. You set
a higher standard in many ways and whatever works for you
personally is what matters. PLEASE keep coming to the boards, I
know we all appreciate it.
: : :
: : I can only tell you that it is the kind of follow-up post that you left that
: : keeps me intersted in being open with people. I respect you A LOT
: : that. Thanks.
: : Jason.
: : 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
: : now. I'm a really big fan of your work and wouldn't let something
: : 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
: : 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
: : : : 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
: : 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.
: : : : 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
: : : : 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
: : : : 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.
