The Village Voice found a 1968 BBC interview with 7-year-old Neil Gaiman about Scientology. Thought this was interesting enough to share.

They do point out that

Gaiman these days prefers not to talk about his Scientology past. His father, David, died in 2009. In 2010 Neil told the New Yorker that he’s no longer a church member.

So just think of this as a tiny glimpse of a moment from a very talented author’s childhood. Like this interview with 5-year-old Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day…

    Neil Gaiman is still an active Scientologist, giving $35,000 to the Scientology Super Powers Center in Minnesota in 2009 and named a Cornerstone Club member by Scientology. Gaiman contributed another $500,000.00 to the same Org in 2010, through his business partner Mary Gaiman. Listed as patrons of Scientology, the Gaiman family owns G&G Vitamins which reaps 6 million a year from selling The Purification Rundown to cult members. Gaiman’s two sisters, Claire Edwards and Lizzie Calciole are not just high-ranking Scientologists, they are the Head of Recruiting and the Head of Wealden House ( the Scientology stronghold in East Grinstead where Gaiman has been photographed). These two high-ranking Scientologists cannot associate with Neil unless he is in good standing.
