According to TMZ, indie film director John Roecker was wearing his “Scientology Is Gay!” t-shirt in Los Feliz recently when he happened to bump into Jenna and Bodhi Elfman. Bodhi growled, “Hey, man, you’re making fun of my religion.”
Mr. Elfman’s ire was apparently drawn by Roecker’s self-made t-shirt, which had a picture of Tom Cruise on the front under the caption “Scientology is Gay!” and a ‘Stayin’-Alive’-era John Travolta on the back with the words “Very Gay!”
A commenter named Robyn chimed in claiming that she’s an attorney “which lends itself to a more heightened level of analysis than the average fellow American,” but made a valid point:
If Americans attacked the beliefs of Christians, Jews, Muslims. etc. with the same fervor with which they attack Scientologists, could you imagine the newspaper editorials and ensuing charges of discrimination???
