The sketch from Michael Keaton's episode focused on believers who had disappeared or been disconnected from their families for speaking out.

Saturday Night Live went for the jugular with its takedown of Scientology.

In a sketch from this weekend's Michael Keaton-hosted episode, the NBC series aired a fake advertisement for a religion called the Church of Neurotology, which was an obvious stand-in for founder L. Ron Hubbard's controversial faith. It appears that SNL opted to change the religion's name slightly for legal reasons.

One line from the jingle was, "The oldest religion, real and true, started in 1982."
