Without probably meaning to do so John Travolta made Scientology seem even more creepy and desperate to keep their secrets secret. In an interview with The Telegraph John Travolta was asked how he got involved with Scientology and he tells a story about how a co-star was involved with the group and he performed an assist. It sounds more like what Travolta likes doing to masseurs, but whatever. Travolta said he wasn't feeling well and then after the assist from the guy started feeling better almost immediately. It's great that he now wants to assist so many others.
Surprisingly that is not even the creepy part of the interview. Remember after the death of his son Jett how there were lots of stories published that said Travolta was thinking of breaking from the organization because of its beliefs. Well, I'm guessing that many of those reports were probably true based on this quote from John.
“They were with me every day after Jett died. They even traveled with me when I needed to get away. And for a solid two years it was like that. It was only in the second year that I started to take a break of a day or two just to see how I was doing on my own.”
So, umm his son died and they stuck to him like glue for two years. No matter where he went or what he did someone was there for two years. He had no time alone until the second year and then only for a day or two? Sounds more like a prison pass than helping him heal.
