Isaac Hayes... Scientologist?

You can so easily imagine Tom Cruise finding his inner alien... but Isaac Hayes... seriously?

His soul will be "born again into the flesh of another body," as the Scientology Press Office's FAQ puts it.

-- BRACEBRIDGE -- A man who claims he is an ordained minister was busted with almost half a kilo of pot yesterday during a traffic stop on Hwy. 11 near Bracebridge.

"Rev." Michel Nathier, 53, of the Church of the Universe, admitted he was smoking a joint when the OPP officer pulled him over but said he was committing a holy act.

Nathier was initially stopped because he was swerving between lanes, Medved said.

When the officer stopped the car, a waft of the sacred herb came floating out, police said.

The officer seized almost a half kilo of pot with a street value of between $1,500 and $3,000.

gotta tell ya... after tom cruise performed his infamous crazy couch-jumping stuff on oprah and got lampooned by every stand-up comic in north america... i thought the rest of the scientology crowd would run screaming from the building.

apparently they're made of sterner stuff than you'd think.

Hayes has been known to be a Scientologist for a number of years now. That's why he left the tv show South Park (as the voice of Chef), as he was offended when they made fun of Scientology.

"scott says... why he left the tv show South Park"

well... you learn something every day, i guess.

just gotta wonder... if you already have the truth about the universe... and from a near godhead like ex-science fiction hack, l. ron hubbard... why would you be doing voice-over work on a tv cartoon show anyway?

isn't there some sort of higher-purpose thing that should be going on here?

i mean besides shearing the lower-order sheeple.

So in other words; someone is going to get the shaft.

Half a kilo is nowhere near 1500-3000 dollars.

Even at $25/gram, 500g is $1250...and at that quantity, you're sure as sh*t not paying $25/gram.

I suppose that half of the police's audience are idiots who don't know any better and don't mind being lied to, and the other half see the baldfaced lie and just laugh.
