Televangelist Kelly Preston

No one could accuse Kelly Preston of slighting Scientology.

John Travolta’s wife appeared on “Live with Regis and Kelly” Tuesday, and discussed her recent efforts to help open schools. She praised Delphi, a chain of private schools that she’s backing, and told the audience that they’re “non-toxic” and “very artistic” — but what she failed to mention was their link to Scientology, the controversial religion that she and her hubby follow.

Delphi Academies are touted as non-denominational, but they are based on the teachings and “study techniques” developed by L. Ron Hubbard, the science fiction writer and founder of Scientology. As one Delphi web site put it: “Mr. Hubbard’s written works on education and child development are applied within the school’s program and are directly related to our success in helping students and families.”

“There’s often an Scientology-related interest behind Kelly Preston’s various causes,” said a long-time observer of the church. “She is a very effective proselytizer.”
