Jenna Elfman is so bored that her cult commits human rights abuses


The fact that Jenna Elfman was a Scientologist really bummed me out when I learned it because I was such a huge Dharma and Greg fan. Since then, however, her adherence to the “religion’s” party line has eroded any allegiance I once held to her. And her latest ignorantly programmed comments don’t sound like she’s any closer to getting out. Jenna recently told Us Magazine that she knows about the controversies surrounding the Church of Scientology but doesn’t worry too much about them because they “bore” her.

Jenna Elfman doesn’t have time for anyone’s negativity when it comes to Scientology, she exclusively reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

The Fear the Walking Dead star, 48, credits the religion with helping her “stay grounded” over the past 30 years — and won’t stand for skepticism about the unique points of view promoted by the Church of Scientology.

“The controversy is boring,” Elfman says while speaking to Us at the NASCAR Auto Club 400 race in Fontana, California. “It’s nothing to me. I know what I know, and how much it helps me.”

[From Us]

On the one hand, Jenna speaks like a proper cult member. She’s been indoctrinated to believe that everything good in her life is a result of CoS and that she owes them her fealty because of it. On the other hand, she’s validating that there are controversies with CoS but they don’t matter because she’s benefitting from it. Just remember, some of the “controversies” of which the cult is accused are coercion, stalking, reckless endangerment of human life, prohibiting psychology or psychiatry to aid mental health, child abuse, trafficking and forced labor. And those are just the ones for which we have first-hand accounts. Let’s not forget the possible shadow of kidnapping hangs over the church as well. But sure, Jenna, let’s turn a blind eye to *waves hands* all that because it’s kept your husband from cheating on you.

    It bored her? As if the reported abuse is supposed to entertain her or something?

  2. Other Renee says:

    Where’s Shelley?
    Until you can answer that, please sit down, biche.

    • Plus 1 —- so plus 1, Other Renee. I also still want to know where the wife is. I hope the FBI still consider this an unsolved case. As to Jenna, I was a huge Darma and Greg fan as well. But lost respect for her and her composer husband when I found out they are strong Scientologists. Don’t get me wrong, I believe and support religious freedom, but Hubbard started a cult and a disturbingly secretive and violent cult it remains. Jenna’s comment is just unbelievable. It almost seems as if she’s acknowledging the issue but because she personally benefits she can’t be bothered giving two figures about it. That attitude is more a plantation mindset than a belief in any higher religion. If there were constant and strong complaints with receipts over many years of wrong doing by something I was part of, then I would —- at the very least ——not be BORED with it. What sort of religion would that be ok in?

      • Jaded says:

        I believe she’s being held in a lock-down facility at the Church of Spiritual Technology. It’s a heavily-fortified complex near Lake Arrowhead, California, where L. Ron Hubbard’s collected works are held. It’s where Scientologists are preparing for Armageddon. I hope the Armageddon specifically targets Scientologists.

    Sameeeee. I used to think she was so cool, and funny. Not anymore. Part of me is like “these people are CLEARLY brainwashed” but at the same time, I still only can muster so much sympathy. When they’re unable to show any to the people who are suffering most because of their horrible cult, it’s hard to cut them any slack. They’re just horrible. And the scariest thing is, they don’t even seem horrified by the accusations. I could see it if they were visibly shocked but still in denial. But these people don’t even seem to bat an eye.

      I was so bummed when I knew she was a scientologist too man. Each time I see a photo of her I look away, cover my ears and sing la la la la la, LOL. I loved Dharma and Greg, which was our silly show with my husband who had a crush on her and I had one on both.
      Turns out they’re both creeps apparently (his diva behaviour was outed a while ago I think).
      How can you be bored by violence and slavery? She’s no “dharma”.

      • Erinn says:

        Dharma would never!

        Sometimes it’s nice not knowing what a douche people are. But at the same time, I’d rather know who not to support I suppose.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      me too. loved that show and watched it all the time until I found out she’s a $cibot.

      I recall hearing a story about her and her husband…some guy was walking down the street wearing a shirt that said “Scientology is Gay” with a pic of either Travolta or Cruise on the front and on the back it said “REALLY Gay” with the picture of the other one, and she and her husband ASSAULTED the guy while yelling “have you raped a baby” which is apparently some phrasing the cult uses to acknowledge that whatever “bad thing” someone did, they didn’t go so far as to rape a baby, or some BS like that.

      she’s TRASH. and so is her unfortunate looking husband.

      • MariaS says:

        Whatwhat? I was scrolling to see if someone would write about this because I remember this very well. Once I read that story I never watched her in anything again. She’s horrible.

    I’m Catholic so I’ll just sit quietly over here…

    • Bettyrose says:

      Dutch, I hear you but plenty of Catholics stay active in their parishes while demanding reform in the higher levels of the church. In this day and age, the church doesn’t excommunicate you just for speaking up…whereas Co$…shudder…

    • How are you responsible Dutch, for the aberrant behavior of men who violated their vows and a power structure of other men who are failing their vows and beliefs to protect them. I don’t think that makes Catholicism bad. I am not catholic, but I know many fine Jesuit priests, nuns, and people of your faith. There isn’t any religion that I can think of that something violent or wrong at some point in their history can’t be laid at the feet of those individuals in power of the church structure.

    Nope nope nope nope.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    What a selfish, arrogant and cruel woman. Let’s not forget that she harassed Carmen Llywelyn, Jason Lee’s ex wife. I cannot stand her.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      she and her hub assaulted a guy on the street for wearing a tee that made fun of the cult.

  9. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    And let’s not forget the multiple rapes and suicides that are covered up by the CoS. She’s bored with it all? She’s gross.

  10. nicegirl says:

    I’m bored and disgusted with this fake religion and it’s abuses. Good grief Scientologists, run away.

  11. nicegirl says:

    It’s probably pretty boring COMPARED TO XENU or Zenu or whatever they call their alien leader. Ridiculous fake religion

  12. StellainNH says:

    I boycott all Co$ actors, including Elizabeth Moss. I will not watch Handmaid’s Tale because of her. It is ironic that she stars in it.

    • RedWeatherTiger says:

      I agree. I think EM is a great actress, but when I look at her, I just….I can’t understand. And she gives me the creeps. Jenna seems even worse, a snotty version of the creepy COS actor. No thanks.

  13. Solace says:

    She’s not bored. She’s complicit at this point. There are no excuses at this point.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I always had an aversion to her, she always came off as cold and obnoxious to me, not sure why. Her comments on COS, here and before, validated my feelings.
    I’m sorry she’s so “bored”. Must be nice. Those who have been harassed, injured, and beyond by her cult aren’t so lucky to feel “bored”.

  15. SM says:

    It keeps her grounded? Scientology seems to be exactly the opposite of that

  16. Izzy says:

    If she needed an abusive cult religion to keep her husband from cheating on her, then gurl, he ain’t all that into you.

  17. MangoAngel says:

    I do wonder why the same vitriol isn’t aimed at people who remain in religions that rape children, repress women, ban abortion, insist raped children who became pregnant give birth before they’re even teenagers, support honor killings, etc…

    I’m not a CoS supporter by any means. But unless we also “cancel” EVERY other person who advocates for their religions with horrific human rights behaviors, I don’t see the fairness or equality in canceling those in CoS. In some fashion, anyone who believes in the goodness of faiths that commit horrible acts because it’s helped them has been brainwashed in some way.

    • MariaS says:

      Because this not a comparative religion blog. This is a celebrity gossip blog and Elfman is a well known actor. Because criticizing one religion isn’t an endorsement of every other religion.

    • Anon says:

      Here is our first Scibot!

    • Jaded says:

      We do aim our vitriol at other religions. Today’s vitriol is Jenna Elfman and Scientology. Tomorrow it may be Mormons, polygamists, or repressive fundamentalists of every ilk.
