John Travolta's cross-dressing upsets Scientology founderIn an article that could have easily come out of The Onion, MSNBC is reporting that John Travolta's decision to play middle-aged mom Edna Turnblad in a remake of John Waters' classic Hairspray is causing a controversy in the Scientology community. Why? Let's just say that the religion's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, wouldn't be a big fan of this year's gay Oscar theme: A recent Rolling Stone article about Scientology reports that its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, felt that gays “should be taken from … society as rapidly as possible” because “no social order will survive which does not remove these people from its midst.”And while it's safe to say that Hubbard was probably not commenting on this specific decision - since, you know, he's been dead for two decades now - Travolta shouldn't be resting easy just yet. Hubbard is scheduled to be reincarnated any day now. And, if for some odd reason that doesn't happen, Travolta should still lookout for Hubbard's Earth-bound enforcer.
