Today Scientologist and self-described Democrat Kirstie Alley took to Twitter to assert that prescription drugs are “poisons.” She also argued that pharmaceutical companies should not be able to tout medical benefits documented in FDA-vetted randomized controlled trials.
Back in 2009, she made an exception to the “drugs are posions” rule for antibiotics. Those are “vital” so they apparently are OK:
@mmoskala No No my product is not a pill. I don't take any drugs for anything unless it is vital..like an antibiotic. which I also hate.

If Alley and other Hollywood scientologists want to to speak out against modern medicine, that is their right.
But maybe it’s time for liberals to stop pretending that they are more committed to sound science than the rest of us.
