Johnny Lewis, the actor from the F/X TV series “Sons of Anarchy,” strangled his landlady to death, dismembered her cat, and then fell to his death yesterday after a wild rampage in Hollywood. Now it turns out that he was a Scientologist who came from a Scientology family. His father, Michael Shelton Lewis, worked his way up to the higher echelons of Scientology beginning in 1980. The last course he took was in 2008 according to the website http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/m/michael-shelton-lewis.html Michael Lewis has gotten as far as OTVII, which means he speaks to aliens, and also did the course for drug counselors.
TMZ reports that Lewis’s son, the now infamous Johnny Lewis, had been in Narconon in 2004, and published a picture of Lewis from Narconon from that time. Johnny Lewis’s Scientology courses stop in 2004, according to http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/j/johnny-lewis.html.
This has certainly been a tough summer for the religious cult. Aside from the Tom Cruise mess, Tony Ortega reported in the Village Voice about the mysterious death of Alexander Jentzsch, son of reclusive Scientology leader Heber Jentzsch. http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2012/07/scientology_alexander_jentzsch_stan_gerson.php. I can’t wait to read Ortega’s book, which should detail all the missing and dead members of the cult, what happened to them and why. As for Lewis, there are still many unanswered questions.
