Hmm could of sworn Will Smith's oldest child was Trey, but I guess he's the forgotten one huh subby.

It probably has more to do with all that money that he can't access

Scientology got him too?  Well shiat.  And I really liked him too.

I'm assuming this is a means that Scientology can get to his money as well.

There have been rumors of the Smiths being involved in Scientology for awhile, but I haven't seen any definitive admission yet.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Smith#Personal_life

Smith gave $1.3 million to charities in 2007, of which $450,000 went to two Christian ministries, and $122,500 went to three Scientology organizations; the remaining beneficiaries included "a Los Angeles mosque, other Christian-based schools and churches, and [...] the Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Center in Israel".[38] Smith and his wife have also founded a private elementary school in Calabasas, California, the New Village Leadership Academy, which uses Study Technology, a teaching methodology developed by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.[39] Federal tax filing showed that Will Smith donated $1.2 million to the school in 2010.[40]

Sounds like they're friendly with it, but haven't made the full conversion.  If they were Scientologists, they wouldn't be giving money to any non-Scientology churches.

My parents aren't Scientologists, but they would have sent me to the Delphi Academy if they had the money.  It was relatively local and it was supposed to be a very good school.  I don't know if they knew it was linked to Scientology or not.

4. Snooki gives Prince Harry advice for enjoying New Jersey
Prince Harry's ongoing tour of the United States is, perhaps inevitably, landing him in Snooki's backyard on the Jersey Shore. And in case Harry hasn't made time in his schedule to binge-watch the MTV reality series, Snooki has been kind enough to offer him advice for enjoying all the Jersey Shore has to offer. "There are strips of bars everywhere where you can have drinks, maybe meet your future Princess,"People, in the midst of a long list that mysteriously doesn't include "avoid anyone that ever appeared onJersey Shore."


Isn't that akin to making a death threat against the Queen?

75,00,000 years ago, Xenu headed the Galactic Federation, which was an organization of 76 planets that had already existed for 20,000,000 years. The planets were suffering a tremendous problem with overpopulation. Xenu's draconian solution to the matter was to gather large numbers of people, kill them, freeze their thetans (souls), and transport the frozen thetans to Earth, which they called Teegeeack. The thetans were left in the vicinity of volcanoes, which were, in turn, destroyed in a series of nuclear explosions.

Members of the galactic Federation eventually rebelled against Xenu, fighting him for six years before he was finally captured and imprisoned on a planet that today is barren desert. Within the "mountain trap" on this unnamed world, Xenu still lives.

Maybe he's just cringed too many times at the egotistical out-of-touch with reality things his father has said about being to greatest movie star in history.

Or he found a tortured half flayed creature that used to be DJ Jazzy Jeff in the Smith family home dungeon that now answers only to the name "Reek".

Giggle all you want (believe me, I am), but this is not any less credible than the Christian religions' stories. It just seems more ridiculous because we were not taught this story since we were children.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN West Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air"
I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
License plate said "fresh" and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bel-air!
I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!"
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air

"Cult" is often used with a tone that connotes disapproval but I don't see why it can't be used to describe a small religion (and I think Merriam-Webster bears that interpretation out).

I guess "sect" can be used for a small faith, but that implies that there was a break with a larger, more established church.

Totally is, bru. sorry. The only reason Christianity isn't considered crazy is because its membership is vast and its stories are so old, worn and stolen that no one notices how weird they are.

Is this supposed to somehow validate Scientology? The wackiness of the tenets of the "religion" aside, the biggest issues people have with it concern how the Church operates. Not only is it a scam, ruining people's lives financially, the members of the Sea Org are seriously abused and treated like slave laborers. Hubbard may have come to believe his own fiction, but many of his claims about his life were fraudulent. Hardly someone I'd trust to have it all figured out. Even worse than Hubbard by a country mile is David Miscavige, who's likely a sociopath. Whatever happened to his wife?

Apparently you haven't heard there is no such thing as a joke or sarcasm, everything is to be taken literally and argued about.

I don't know how many times I've seen people make posts on Fark that were just blatant silliness and quite obviously meant in a sarcastic fashion and there was someone to jump all over it going "OMG I can't believe you really think that you are a monster! I am now going to correct you in detail about just how wrong you are because I totally missed the cut of your jib!"

There was a story in the Daily Fail the other day about how the Smiths didn't believe in disciplining their children or something, they just let them learn from their mistakes. And then something about how the kid wanted to buy a house and go live in it.

I'm sure this little farker will turn out GREAT.

I could be wrong, but I think the designation as cult has less to do with the absurdity of the beliefs themselves and more to do with the leadership's/group's treatment of members, particularly the psychological aspects. Tactics like isolation from family or maybe the outside world, forcing members to give up their free will, and complete or nearly complete avoidance of different opinions or sources of information. Stuff like that.

The designation has more to do with society's assessment of the faith than the methods employed by the faith.

A religion that is not considered a cult by most holds the following to be sacred:

"He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me" Matthew 10:37 (KJV)

If an attempt were made to put such a observation were put into practice, it would almost certainly result in someone being isolated from his or her family at some point in time.  If having members isolated from the outside world is sufficient to make a faith a cult, than Christianity's monastic tradition would qualify.

If society (or often, the individual author) considers a faith to be unsettling, sinister or strange, it can be designated as a "cult."

The last one I'm pretty sure applies to all religions and I could find matches for abuse and isolation in popular religions. I think scientology is just way too big to be considered a cult, no matter how weird it is. It's not like they all live in the scientology bunker outside Lubbock

FTFA:3. Downton Abbey will be back in January 2014
How long will it be until viewers can return to the stiff, mannered, inexplicably overrated confines of Downton Abbey? The Daily Beast Downton Abbey will be back on PBS in January 2014, nearly four months after the show's fourth season is scheduled to premiere on the U.K.'s ITV. Spoiler-averse U.S. fans are advised to move to the U.K. before autumn - or, if that's not an option, to avoid Twitter, Facebook, or conversation with any of their fellow human beings between September and January.



Or, I guess if you were someone I knew but who totally isn't me... you could just download it from the internets encouraging a better business model out of the film and television industry.
