Gay leaders are calling for a boycott of John Travolta’s Hairspray because of his religion’s stance on homosexuality. Followers of Scientology believe gays are easily cured with their 5-step or is it 12-step program. I always get confused.
“Travolta, a prominent Scientologist, has no business reprising an iconic gay role, given his [religion’s] stance on gay issues,” notes Kevin Naff, managing editor of the gay-oriented Washington Blade. “It’s well known that Scientology rejects gays and lesbians as members and even operates reparative therapy clinics to ‘cure’ homosexuality.”
It’s kind of weird because John Travolta is rumored to be gay. Not only that, one time I saw John Travolta kissing a dude. The dude was YOUR MOM. Oh, snap!
