The Religious Affiliation of Actress
From: "Jenna Elfman" page in "Scientology Successes" section of "What is Scientology?" official church website (http://www.whatisscientology.org/html/part05/chp19/pg0312.html; viewed 9 November 2005):
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 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.
No one is telling you. You gain your own knowledge of what is true for you. And so your ability to communicate, your ability to be certain about yourself and to know what your purposes, intentions and goals are, become much stronger. Scientology is about regaining total cause over your own life.
From: Gary Strauss, "Stars unleash their passion", published in USA Today, 4 July 2005 (http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2005-07-04-celebs-religion_x.htm; viewed 21 November 2005):
What happens when a Hollywood star spouts off about religion?
...Perhaps more so than other religions, Scientology draws particular scrutiny. It has been investigated as a sect in Germany and even discounted as a religion. Yet Scientology, founded by science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, boasts 8 million disciples, including celebs John Travolta, Lisa Marie Presley and Kirstie Alley. Most are effusive in their praise.
...Former Dharma & Greg star Jenna Elfman credits it for helping sustain her 10-year marriage to actor Bodhi Elfman.
"Scientology gives us tools of communication and understanding and humanity so we can live more peacefully and happily with each other," she says.
