The unsaid truth about Danny Masterson

The unsaid truth about Danny Masterson, In 2015, Danny Masterson gave a wide-ranging interview to Paper magazine about his experiences with Scientology, which he has participated in since he was a child. Speaking about his perceived positives about the institution, he shared, “I grew up in New York and it was just sort of like, everyone hated their parents and was always cheating and lying, and I was able to just be friends with my parents. A lot of people have that in their life, but I noticed that all my friends who were Scientologists, kids I had grown up with, we all sort of had the same thing: easy communication.”

When asked about the documentary and expose against Scientology, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (which coincidentally was released a month after Masterson’s pro-Scientology interview), Masterson slammed the criticism. “I heard about that documentary; the documentary where they interviewed eight people who hate Scientology. Should be pretty interesting,” he said. “I wonder if Sundance would allow a documentary of, like, eight people who hate Judaism. But you know, my religion’s fair game, I guess, ’cause it’s new.”

The actor also addressed Scientology’s opposition to psychiatry and the use of medication to treat mental health issues. “Scientology handles those things, those mental problems that people have. It gets rid of them… That’s the solution to depression, not f***in’ Prozac and whatever other pill that makes the kid then walk into a goddamn school and kill other kids.”
