Having 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”.
