The author of “Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief” stated Tom Cruise and John Travolta in addition to other celebrity members have a “moral responsibility” to reform the controversial Church of Scientology.
The Pulitzer Prize winning writer, Lawrence Wright made the statement to The Hollywood Reporter’s Kim Masters at a sold-out event about his book. Wright also claims that 30 years under the leadership of David Miscavige has been “highly detrimental to Scientology.”
During the interview, Wright was asked if the church would survive two years of non-stop bad news and high profile defections. Wright claims that the only way for the church to recover was if Cruise, Travolta and other celeb members used their “moral authority” to make it happen.
He went on to say that the famous celebrity members such as Tom Cruise have a “moral responsibility” towards the church.
“Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief” was published in January and at the time was called a “feat of reporting” by The Wall Street Journal.
In his book, Lawrence Wright wrote that Tom Cruise signed the Scientology standard billion year contract. According to the contract, Cruise’s ultimate goal is “protecting humanity from aliens living in our bodies, aliens who are bent on destroying us and the planet.”
