Did you miss us? Because we missed you, we really did. But now, finally, after nearly a month of living in the dark ages, we have broadband. We are now comfortably located in the plush new, Celebrity Towers, looking out over our sea view, drinking martini's, and wondering "what has been happening in the world of celeb religion without us?". And so we begin to take some tiny, baby steps back into the heady world of gossip blogging. I have to say, we are a little shakey, so we are gonna start real easy, with a Scientology story.
Of course, it is a sad Scientology story, because it involves the man that broke our hearts with his poorly choosen religious affliations; Jason Lee.
It would seem that, back before Matt Stone and Trey Parker used a cartoon to crucify the pseudo faith, Kevin Smith wanted to poke a little fun at it too. Thats right, many, many moons ago, back in 1999, Kevin wrote this hilarious (please note itallicized sarcasm) gem for the movie Dogma:
"There was a line where someone asked his character what engages the Lord’s wrath these days, and his character said, 'I don’t know, Scientology?"
While my sides aren't exactly splitting, I lament that it was taken out of the movie not because of the lack of wit, but because Jason didn't feel comfortable with it. Perhaps it escaped his attention that the entire movie was religious satire. Oh, unless he has accepted the Scientology mantra that its alright to make fun of other religions, just not your own?
Step away from the e-meter and come back to us Jason.... we beg you, it is for your own good!
