Don’t You HAVE To Be Gay To Be A Scientologist?

June 12th, 2007 // 8 Comments

The managing editor of the gay newspaper “The Washington Blade” is calling for a boycott of “Hairspray” because Johnny Trav’s galactic religion for closet cases is anti-gay. Who gives a shit? I’d rather be gay than full-out crazy! Does ANYONE take Scientology seriously? These people won’t let their autistic kids receive help and believe that their space deity lives in a volcano. I’d sooner have Squeaky Fromme as my friggin’ therapist.

“Travolta, a prominent Scientologist, has no business reprising an iconic gay role, given his [religion's] stance on gay issues,” notes Kevin Naff, managing editor of the gay-oriented Washington Blade. “It’s well known that Scientology rejects gays and lesbians as members and even operates reparative therapy clinics to ‘cure’ homosexuality.”

Judging by that pic of Travolta tongue-lashing that guy on the runway, I’m guessing the “reparative therapy” didn’t take.

    Some of Scientology’s sayings involving homosexuality

    “At 1.1 on the tone scale we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the second dynamic 2. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism, and irregular practices. . . . He is the harlot, the pervert, the unfaithful wife, free love, easy marriage and quick divorce, and general sexual disaster.” – Science of Survival, Book One, Chapt. 18, at 128-29

    “At 1.1 . . . This is the level of the pervert, the homosexual, the turncoat.” – Science of Survival, Book 1, Chapt. 13, at 101 – 102

    “People on this level on the second dynamic (fn1) are intensely dangerous in the society, since aberration is contagious. A society which reaches this level is on its way out of history, as went the Greeks, as went the Romans, as goes modern European and American culture. Here is a flaming danger signal which must be heeded if a race is to go forward.” – cience of Survival, Book One, Chapt. 18, at 129

    “At 1.1, we have lying, to avoid real communication. * * * Here is the level of covert hostility, the most dangerous and wicked level on the tone scale. Here is the person who smiles while he inserts a knife blade between your vertebrae. * * * Here is the insincere flatterer who yet awaits only a moment of unguardedness to destroy. * * * This is the level of the pervert, the homosexual, the turncoat.” – Science of Survival, Book 1, Chapt. 13, at 101 – 102

    “The only answers would seem to be the permanent quarantine of such persons from society to avoid the contagion of their insanities and the general turbulence which they bring to any order, thus forcing it lower on the scale, or processing such persons until they have attained a level on the tone scale which gives them value.” – Science of Survival, Book 1, Chapt. 21, at 145

    “There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone Sale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone Scale by unentrubulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow. Adders are safe bedmates compared to people on the lower bands of the tone scale. Not all the beauty nor the handsomeness nor artificial social value nor property can atone for the vicious damage such people do to sane men and women. The sudden and abrupt deletion of all individuals occupying the lower bands of the tone scale from the social order would result in an almost instant rise in the cultural tone and would interrupt the dwindling spiral into which any society may have entered. It is not necessary to produce a world of clears in order to have a reasonable and worthwhile social order; it is only necessary to delete those individuals who range from 2.0 down, either by processing them enough to get their tone level above the 2.0 line – a task which, indeed, is not very great, since the amount of processing in many cases might be under fifty hours, although it might also in others be in excess of two hundred – or simply quarantining them from the society. A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars. By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country.” – Science of Survival, at 170-71

    So yes, boycott Hairspray!

    That is without a doubt one of the most frightening images I’ve ever seen. Gross. He has come a long way…..down. And his head just keeps growing.

  5. He belongs to a cult, er, religion that bans gay people, yet he’s wearing a dress. It just doesn’t add up. And that picture made me throw up in my mouth.
