Does anyone else want the Scientologists to just throw aside their religious guise and take up the mantle of an evil megalomaniac corporation like they were always meant to? I'm talking Lex Luthor type of evil genius. They need to stop with the secrecy, buy the biggest damn skyscraper in the USA, and turn it into their headquarters of evil. Maybe even put a balcony at the top where the Scientology execs can drink champagne while doing the evil laugh at all the pleebs below them.

It's amazing how all of the former Scientologists uniformly lie about such similar things over and over again. The top-secret suppressive organization that retrains all ex-Scientologists to lie like this must have amazing reach, control, and message uniformity to keep the lies so persistent and consistent.

Also, from another perspective, I wonder what it says about Scientology that so many people that were members for 10, 15, or 20 years have all become horrible conscienceless liars the moment that they leave the church. Even if Scientology's claims about the benefits of auditing are true, there seems to be a horrible ethical and moral crash that happens right after people leave or are forced out. It's truly amazing.

Is there any story that anyone can come up with, that at this point wouldn't be beliveable about Scientology?

Seriously if you told me they are responsible for all legitimate rape cases in the US......i'd probably buy it.

"So applicant #3, we thank you for your interest in starting a partnership with our Lord and Savior. We just have a few more questions to before we decide. Would you be okay with pegging Mr. Cruise when he asks? Would you comfortable sharing your bed with several nameless Columbian man slaves? If Mr. Cruise gets confused and attempts to sleep with you, will you moan in a low, manly voice?"

The Tom Cruise Wife Auditions were well known as they were happening back in 2005. That's what made the whole Katie Holmes thing so bizarre -- she definitely knew it was happening, and she knew she wasn't even his first choice.

It's laughable that the "church" is still denying it, although that is their MO -- deny shiat no matter how much evidence there is against you. Just deny deny deny and keep your members in the dark.

And sue even though the odds are against you. You have to sue to keep the other people who aren't part of the cult from talking about Scientology.

If Scientologists are calling a story a "complete fabrication," that's their code-word for saying it's 100% true.

This Scientology everybody keeps talking about sounds intriguing, I think I'll I'll pop in and check it out this weekend.

I suppose the most farked aspect of the story is that Katie Holmes actually embraced the whole thing.

You know of their "Narconon" drug rehabilitation centers? One here in Seattle was a client of ours for several months (this was maybe 2 years ago), and while I knew of the Scientology connection beforehand, I figured it wouldn't be that weird to deal with them, and that they would run their office and in general handle our professional relationship much like anyone else.

Nope. They were horribly difficult to get in contact with (their posted business hours started at either 8 or 9am, but no one would answer their damn phones until after 10am), and instead of being given specific points of contact, any one of 5 different guys (who all sounded to be only in their 20s) would juggle the responsibilities of giving us the correct ad materials and whatnot to work with...and of course, they sucked horribly at things like "emailing with correct file attachments" and "faxing correct documents".

Oh, and the motherf*ckers literally had problems paying us on time.

Tom Cruise lawyer denies reports he 'auditioned brides'

FTFA:Bert Fields called a Vanity Fair report, previewed on the magazine's website, "long, boring and false".

Does anyone else think that if you hired a lawyer, you'd expect them to be critical about an article by not describing it as 'long' and 'boring'?

Is it the laywer version of tl;dr?

Just high level AW'ing. I didn't even know who she was before she married Tom, now she's in my intertubes clogging up my brainwaves. Being Tom Cruise's beard is WAY better than having your sex tape "leak out".

Please, these guys haven't even been able to get their HQ in clearwater up to code in more than a decade, a skyscraper is WAY beyond thier capababilities.

"Hired" implies that money is changing hands, rather than being brainwashed by a cult and expected to work without salary.

Most scientology-realted businesses are being run by virtual slaves to the Church (SeaOrg members who sign contracts to work for the church for "a billion years" and get paid almost nothing except for room and board (and Church discipline can take their food or bed away if you don't work hard enough)

Yes, because mainstream religions never try to steer their members into marrying like-minded devotees. Rewrite the story to say "Mormon" instead of "Scientologist" and, I don't know, "Mitt Romney" insetad of "Tom Cruise," and it's not nearly as shocking. (That doesn't work? How about "Baptist" and "Tim Tebow"?)

I'm too lazy to wiki when L. Ron shed his last thetan, but I wouldn't be surprised if a mostly money-hungry endeavor during his lifetime later evolved into a much more shady and power-hungry endeavor afterwards. All it takes is inadvertently putting a manical despot in charge for an organization to go really bad. If fact, you know who else turned a normal group into a tyranical and oppressive regime?

i notice that with every interview... its a canned answer for the lawyers on the Scientology side... "they are angry, lying, disgruntled, ex-church members.."

Given that LRH was a paranoid-schizophrenic and a pedophile who created the SeaOrg so he could buy himself a cruise ship to sail in international waters so he could molest children with impunity, there really isn't a lot of "downhill" for Scientology after that

This surprises not one serious informed person, ever. Cults are culty, water is wet, and celebrities who are treated like gods act like megalomaniacs.

Gay megalomaniacs who use arms akimbo to try to dominate every room they're in, when they're short men with insane controlling tendencies as if that were alpha behavior instead of exuding calm confidence, which is.

Tom Cruise is NOT an alpha male. He is one of the numerous pretenders who use brute force, intimidation, and power to force others. He seeks to take alpha status from others rather than the natural way, which is to be so impressive that it is granted by others.

The Vanity Fair article sucked... It could have been 2 paragraphs and covered all that it did. I was rather disappointed. Not surprised to see it getting some confirmation, though. Anyone who hasn't read the story by the dude who built the custom Escalade for Cruise should give that a go, also. I think the dude got paid something like $60 a week, and did it all for the church(At least officially).

Funny thing is; I either came a cross a shortened version, or a single page is considered "long and boring" now, because the one I read was short and boring. Everything could have been summed up in the second paragraph... Maybe that was just a teaser for the whole story.

Your experiences him seem to defy everything I have ever heard from my friends and coworkers that spend time in the same room as Tom Cruse.

What are you basing this on? I'm genuinely curious. I don't think I have ever seen evidence of him being a jerk but I could be wrong. Weird of course but that's to be expected I guess.

Scientology doesn't let black people join. I went down there personally to sign up and I was told my Thetan levels were too low. They didn't even do anything. He just said I didn't look like the type who would have "thetans".

But no news journalists will pick up this story. They only care about Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
