Now if her fans would only see the light and leave her. Talentless Biatch, got her fame by tossing her hair, looking pouty and marrying Tom Cruise. We could aim that senior citizen who hit the Jehovah's Witnesses toward her -
2003-04-20 02:08:30 PM  
I'll have a Clamato to celebrate.
2003-04-20 02:25:13 PM  
She'd better watch out for SEAorg, I hear they tend to kidnap and kill people -- "accidentally" of course. Clammies suck, real evil buggers, as bad as tweakers.

I think every Farker's favorite scientologist, whether they know it or not is Nancy Cartwright, voice of Bart and Nelson, etc.

Future headline: "Nicole Kidman missing in Tampa."

One time I got tired of being asked every day if I would take the Scientology personality test, so I took it and answered every question in the worst possible way. They took it from me and, all chirpy, said "Ok! Let's take a look!" After looking it over they got really quiet and let me escape.
2003-04-20 07:46:44 PM  
I never cease to be amazed at the amount of attention the talentless biatch, her talentless ex-husband, and that silly invented cult of sciencefictionology get....pfffft
2003-04-20 07:47:23 PM  
I'd bet she's hanging out with a cult that practices human sacrifices now ... :)
2003-04-20 07:47:55 PM  
I thought they kill you if you try to leave.
2003-04-20 07:48:05 PM  
ssshhhhhhhh..... Xenu might hear you......
2003-04-20 07:48:30 PM  
Still amazes me people can join that group. I would like to know how much money she gave to them. I probably could retire off the amount of money they milked from her.
2003-04-20 07:49:16 PM  
I am Xenu!!!!!!
Now bow down to me and kiss my ass!!!
2003-04-20 07:49:43 PM  
thank God.
/not sarcasm
2003-04-20 07:49:45 PM  
I never cared for her much, but she gets a gold star in my book for leaving those weirdos.
2003-04-20 07:50:01 PM  
does anyone have a good succinct definition of scientology? i only hear that its a ridiculous cult, but i dont know exactly what they believe.
2003-04-20 07:50:27 PM  
I thought they kill you if you try to leave.
2003-04-20 07:51:40 PM  
They don't kill you for leaving...they just make you read all of L. Ron Hubbard's bad fiction.

Then they know all about Hell on earth.
2003-04-20 07:51:41 PM  

Aliens transplanted humans to Earth. We are the decendants of clams.
2003-04-20 07:53:05 PM  
Freerider484, all I've heard about what they believe, although I'm sure this is wrong, partially or wholly, is that they believe that God is an alien at the center of the earth or something
2003-04-20 07:53:30 PM  
i believe they use the term "disappear", diadem.
2003-04-20 07:54:16 PM  
I have a "religion" she can latch on to.
2003-04-20 07:55:30 PM  
Aliens transplanted humans to earth...

Sounds a lot like Mission to Mars' storyline....

Although, even if it were true, which it might very well be, why develop a religion out of it?

The aliens aren't exactly going to have control over your soul or whatever after you die, so why must you worship, praise, and respect them?
2003-04-20 07:55:40 PM  
One word: Good
2003-04-20 07:55:40 PM  
To be unable to dissect a religious text because it is COPYRIGHTED is enough for me.

Enjoy your death trap, ladies!
2003-04-20 07:55:45 PM  
Go here
2003-04-20 07:56:01 PM  
Woohoo, maybe she'll let me bone her now!
2003-04-20 07:56:14 PM  
"Actually, when I knew Nicole, she seemed to think there was nothing better than Scientology,"

That's scary!

Nice, GoneFishing. I was just about to post that link. Operation Clambake does a good job of explaining and exposing the wackiness.
2003-04-20 07:59:04 PM  
Hey, if I was rich and wanted to show off I could join that cult. Nothing says conspicuous consumption like a religion with a six figure buy-in.
2003-04-20 07:59:51 PM  
Actually I don't think she was ever a scientologist. Word on the street was that she divorced him because she didn't want her kids to be raised scientologist. She is, and has always been, a practicing Catholic.
2003-04-20 08:00:06 PM  
Ishkur - Kudos for the Bowfinger reference!
2003-04-20 08:00:24 PM  
Thanks, Gonefishing, now I have a few hours of good readin' while I wait for FilePlanet's damned line to dissappear
2003-04-20 08:01:24 PM  
OMFG! Next thing you know she'll be voting Republican!
2003-04-20 08:02:33 PM  
TennesseeBuck, like that's a bad thing?
2003-04-20 08:02:53 PM  
Har. Maggie should join, I just listened to her on the radio... "How many times have drunk people sung Rod Stewart to you?"
"Oh, If I could count 'em, I'd be a millionaire..."
Oh I'll let her and her puppies be. Welcome to the Cult.
BTW if maggies selling one, I'll have the one with the BIG BROWN NOSE.

2003-04-20 08:03:01 PM  

joins scientology.
marries tom cruise.
gets 5 movies made.
divorces tom cruise.

arranged marriage anyone?
2003-04-20 08:03:51 PM  
"Actually, when I knew Nicole, she seemed to think there was nothing better than Scientology,"
That must have been until she divorced TC and discovered how good sex could actually be. ;)
2003-04-20 08:05:34 PM  
I live 10 minutes from Clearwater, the epicenter of those freaks. I actually respect the religion in the sense that's it's even more unabashedly about money than the Catholic church. They say flat out that you won't acheive enlightenment and find out about the aliens until you give a certain abount of money.
2003-04-20 08:05:47 PM  
but are the australians still jews?

aussie aussie aussie...oy oy oy...

Nicole is pretty...
how did tom cruise get so lucky...

I should be so lucky, if not nicole, maybe katie holmes or christina aguilera.
2003-04-20 08:07:19 PM  
So the poor dont get Aliens OR Enlightenment??!

I thought it was the Meek that got the jackpot!

/Apologies mr hicks.
2003-04-20 08:07:21 PM  
TheOtherGuyFromWham I guess that's true. With tithing, you're told to pay 15% of your income every year with no gurantee of anything. With Scientology you're told flat out what your money buys you, spiritually.
2003-04-20 08:08:05 PM  
Glasgowsfinest actually, the poor have to KEEP their aliens. It's only if you have money that they'll remove them from your body for you.
2003-04-20 08:08:28 PM  
I really like the lack of a segway right into the Tommy Lee killing the kid story.
2003-04-20 08:09:20 PM  
My entire family are Catholics, and none of 'em give a penny. Its a Scots thing, we're as tight as an Irishman with a free bar.
2003-04-20 08:09:31 PM  
So when is it ok to take off our black jumpsuits and addidas sneakers?? I'm sick of waiting for this comet...oops, wrong thread.

Take me to Your Kidman!!!

After years of resisting, I recently picked up my old copy of Dianetics and gave it several sessions of bathroom reading.

I came away thinking, "if that's all it takes to start a religion, I should get to work."
2003-04-20 08:13:43 PM  
I've always heard that L Ron Hubbard started the 'religion' as a bet from a fellow scientist. Anyone know the truth?
