    Bad boyfriends WHEN the 2007 movie Hairspray ran into controversy, John Waters leapt to the defence of John Travolta, who had donned a fat suit for a cross-dressing role. A prominent gay activist claimed the actor should not have been cast because his religion, Scientology, tried to convert homosexuals. ''John Travolta is certainly not anti-gay,'' says Waters, who wrote in the memoir Role Models that he and fellow filmmaker Gus Van Sant always joke about being called ''openly gay'' as if that means they arrive at premieres shrieking about their Judy Garland records.

    ''Every person that worked on that movie was gay. It was lovely.''

    Waters says Scientology is no more ridiculous than other religions. ''Here's how I feel: even if Scientologists say that they can make you straight if you're gay, so what? If someone's that miserable being gay, I don't want 'em. They'll just make bad boyfriends. Let Scientology have them!''

    I don't believe John Waters is stupid enough to open himself up to a megalolsuit. Does this mean he speaks the truth? Probably ;)

    Ho-ho-homo! John Waters is bringing his Christmas show to Clearwater! | Creative Loafing Tampa

    The Pope of Trash brings his holiday cheer to Capitol Theatre Dec. 16.

    By Julie Garisto, March 6, 2015

    If you're a John Waters fan, you know about his frisky holiday show, A John Waters Christmas. He's bringing his act to the Capitol Theatre on Wed., Dec. 16, at 8 p.m. In the show, Waters pokes fun at the holiday season with saucy, risque humor — expect him to “put the X in Xmas.”

    <snipped>

    In Waters' show we get to experience more of his rapid-fire monologue and skewering of holiday movies, rituals and traditions. Waters will delve into his obsession with Santa Claus and real-life holiday horror stories. With religions being touched on, it will interesting to see what the Pope of Trash makes of Scientology's religious headquarters in downtown Clearwater.
