7. Jenna Elfman

Jenna Elfman became a member of the Church of Scientology in 1995 when she married Bodhi Elfman. The church’s website quotes Elfman as saying: “In other philosophies, my questions would get answered to some degree but then I would have a follow-up question and there would be no answer. The logic would be dead-end. In Scientology you can find answers for anything you could ever think to ask. These are not pushed off on you as, ‘This is the answer, you have to believe in it.’ In Scientology you discover for yourself what is true for you.”

They have the success rate of getting hardcore addicts off drugs, 90-something percent maybe.” He also said, “If it is something that helps you in your life it’s a positive thing, so all I have to say is that you can’t really make a judgement on something unless you know something about it first-hand.”
