Another clueless celeb

Skeptics CircleHaving hooked up with Tom Cruise, it was inevitable that she would get into Scientology too. Yes, to quote Katie Holmes: I have looked into [Scientology] myself and I really like it and I think it’s really wonderful. When will celebrities realise they’re being used to legitimize a criminal cult? Wasn’t Battlefield Earth enough of a clue? Don’t these people ever do a bit of research into what they’re getting into?

Scientology is a “religion” which was created on a bet by L Ron Hubbard, a hack sci-fi author with delusions of grandeur. His infamous quote:

Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous, If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be to start his own religion.

Hubbard used his sci-fi background to create a creation myth involving an ancient galactic empire ruled by Xenu who hid billions of people in Earth’s volcanoes and detonated atom bombs in them to kill everyone. Yes, L Ron Hubbard was a complete nutcase (or a genius con-man, you decide).

I would imagine that unless the Scientology celebs ever visit places like xenu.net, they never hear about these dark secrets of the Scientology cult. They’re treated with kid gloves, the Scientology PR machine hard at work to keep them as figureheads and not freak them out by telling them the truth.

Scientology is a criminally convicted cult in Canada. They were fined $250,000 in 1985 when it was discovered that some of their members had infiltrated government offices and stolen confidential documents. They did this because those government organisations were perceived enemies of Scientology. It’s not just Canada either, this site has a list of all the countries where Scientology has been caught being a bad little organisation.

In 1995 Lisa MacPherson was declared dead on arrival at a hospital in Clearwater, Florida. Clearwater is where the HQ of the Scientology organisation is located. Lisa had been kept there in isolation for days after having a psychotic break. She was underweight, dehydrated, and covered in bruises and bug bits. This is what Scientology does to its members.

Tom Cruise, Jenna Elfman, John Travolta, Juliette Lewis, Kirstie Alley, and all the other Scientology celebrities are being abused in their own way. Their public profile is being used to promote a criminally negligent ufo cult which only exists to make money from the weak and the gullible.

Katie, have fun with Tom if you want, but please stay away from his “religion”.

  1. What IS it with celebrities and Scientology? I mean, they all go for goofy religions, some ancient and exotic, others completely made-up. They must some kind of superior mentalist on staff because I cannot fathom why otherwise bright people would fall for this crap. Well, except for Cruise, who strikes me as incredibly dimwitted but skilled at making people think he’s intelligent and passionate, especially when he pulls his Frank TJ Mackie Stare of Intensity during interviews.

    I doubt Katie Holmes, who has grown up to be a rather lovely young woman, is serious about Cruise nor his cult. It’s all about publicity for both their summer movies.

  2. It’s also a religion where one can advance to higher levels….. but only if you have the money to ‘test’ upwards. How’s that for Republicans, except for the God thing.

  3. Quite the fool, young or otherwise, it seems that even ‘stars’ can be blinded by ‘love’ and follow errant paths. Sad, in reality.

  4. I have studied Scientology for many years.

    People are not perfect, otherwise there would be no need for Scientology, Catholicism, or any other philosophy. Scientologists can make mistakes the same as anyone else.

    But, you need only see the excitement in an “ADD” child who has learned how to read with the help of Hubbard’s “Study Tech” . . . or see a prisoner cry upon realizing that his criminal behavior is actually ruining his life after reading “The Way to Happiness” (excerpted from LRon Hubbards work) to see why it is that many people are into Scientology.

    If you want to know about ANYTHING you need to look into it for yourself . . . not listen to outside opinions. If you wanted to find out about Chinese cooking, you would buy a Chinese cook book. If you want to find out about Scientology, read a Scientology book.

  5. Looks like you got a bit too excited and pressed submit too soon there buddy.

    Seriously though Lee, I hope you haven’t ploughed too much of your money into the cult of greed. It’s not too late to get out, it might be tough but you can do it.

    I’ve read Scientology material, as have many other critics. It wouldn’t be fair of me to criticise it if I hadn’t looked into it. I know how awful it is. I know what a huge waste of money and your life it is. It’s a scam, pure and simple.
