John Travolta May Be Done With Scientology

For as long as John Travolta has been a Scientologist, the media has been making fun of him. But the jokes grew bitter six months ago when Travolta’s only son, Jett, died. The 16-year-old, who was believed to be autistic and allegedly wasn’t treated because his religion did not allow it, died of a seizure. This devastating blow no doubt changed how the Travoltas think about the church. Rick Ross, an author and lecturer on Scientology told The Daily Mail that, “There have been strong rumors coming out of Scientology that John Travolta is disappointed that the religion was not able to help his son more … It’s led him to question his faith.” Over the years, Travolta has risen to the level of Operating Thetan VII, which is a title just one rank below the most (known) senior position. To reach such a high standing, you have to tell your darkest secrets to the church via “auditing” sessions which are taped and kept on file––which could easily be released if Travolta decides to split. The star also gave millions of bucks to build the Scientology Superpower Center in Clearwater, Florida, another reason separating could be so hard. Even if there’s any truth to these rumors, John is sure to detach from the church on the down-low. So I guess we’ll have to wait and see? In the meantime, we can just be thankful no more “Battlefield Earth” movies are in the works. [Daily Mail]
