Despite the headline, I have to say that I'm actually a lot confused. While I was sitting around this weekend enjoying each second away from that thing called work, I stumbled upon a bunch of photos from a Scientology event that happened Saturday night. Always wanting to see which celebrities admit to being Scientologists, I looked through the photos. As I was looking at the entire cast of My Name Is Earl (minus Jamie), I felt something was a little off. Then I figured out what it was.
The party at the Celebrity Centre was actually their 16th annual Christmas Stories Presentation. That's right. For the last 16 years, the same people who don't believe in Christmas have gone out of their way to have this really warm and fuzzy party featuring all of the celebs they can muster to read Christmas stories and sing Christmas Carols to as many potential recruits as they can. Umm, why would they do that? Why would an organization which doesn't believe in the holiday go to such great efforts to convince the general public they do? I guess they could invite everyone over for a free stress test, but they probably figured out a long time ago that giving people something comfortable, even if it goes against everything the church believes in would make them more likely to attract new members.
So, to make everyone get into that holiday spirit, Laura Prepon, Erika Christensen, David Carradine, Jenna Elfman, Michael Pena, Jason Dohring, and Holly Palmer all performed while other actors and actresses mingled with the crowd all while being watched by Anne Archer dressed in a tuxedo. Maybe someone else has a reason why the Scientologists go to such great lengths to celebrate something they don't believe in, and I would love to hear it.
