Will Smith Drops Scientology from his Annual Donations

Good news: Will Smith didn’t make any charitable donations to Scientology last year, says Showbiz411.com.

In the recent past, Smith’s private self-named charitable foundation had donated thousands of dollars to groups associated with Scientology.

So despite Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent appearance at a Scientology lunch in Hollywood with celebrity disciples Tom Cruise and Jenna Elfman, the couple is not giving the cultish group tax free contributions any more.

But New Village Academy, the private school founded by Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, still advertises Scientology teaching on its curriculum list. Here’s why that is a very bad thing.

And this could be bad as well: even though so many alarming things are known about Scientology, people apparently are still getting sucked into it.
