While there has been much speculation about the couple's ties to Scientology, Smith has never publicly said he is a Scientologist.
Last month, Smith was quoted as saying, “I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions. And I respect all people and all paths.”
In December, interviewed on "Access Hollywood," Smith said of his Scientology connection: “I was introduced [to] it by Tom [Cruise], and I’m a student of world religion. I was raised in a Baptist household, I went to a Catholic school, but the ideas of the Bible are 98 percent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 percent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism.”

Sound like there's any confusion here? Seems pastors today need to be sure not to neglect one of their basic roles: to EXPLAIN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE CHRISTIAN and distinguish what is not. Seems there is recurring confusion in this area especially among Hollywood celeb's.
