A former executive in the Church of Scientology claims the organization has framed him in response to his participation in the recent HBO documentary "Going Clear" which aims to exposes the religion's evils.
According to Gawker, two narcotics officers with the Burbank, California, police department showed up at Tom DeVocht's door, who makes an appearance in "Going Clear" which debuted on HBO last month, and claimed they received an anonymous tip that he was selling drugs in the area. The police even wielded what the publication describes as "dubious photographic evidence" of him engaging in illegal activity.
The incident occurred just five days after the premier of "Going Clear." The report states that Adam Baumgarten, one of the narcotics officers who showed up at DeVocht's door, showed him a picture that had been taken of him sitting in car holding a quart-sized plastic bag with something white inside. more >>
Actor John Travolta has broken his silence and spoken out about his time with the Church of Scientology but admitted that he refuses to watch the HBO documentary "Going Clear."
"I haven't experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn't true for me?" he asked the Tampa Bay Times before speaking on behalf of fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise.
"It wouldn't make sense, nor would it for Tom, I imagine," Travolta said. "I've been so happy with my experience in the last 40 years … that I really don't have anything to say that would shed light on (a documentary) so decidedly negative. I've been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and Scientology has been so beautiful for me that I can't even imagine attacking it. Why would I even approach a negative perspective? That would be a crime to me, personally, to do that." more >>
