When Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, not only did she cause one of the biggest breakups in recent Hollywood history, she also created a panic among Scientologists.

But Holmes isn't the first big-name celebrity to cause a stir in the church.

The long list includes actresses, producers, and singers—some of whom have lashed out at the religion after their fallout.

We've compiled the stars who once practiced the religion, those who have spoken out against the church, and those who considered following Scientology.

Plus, see who considered joining the religion including Ricky Martin and the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Elvis nailed it on the first take. ;)

Friend, Abby, has recently done an article about a young woman who escaped the cult. You might want to look it up.

It’s amazing how freaking stupid these show folk really are. Most of them are able to string together a coherent sentence, provided somebody else writes it for them, but that’s about it.

Some who join may know it’s BS, but realize that it’s a path to power in Hollywood.

I had a friend who joined them. She tried to recruit me. I said no. I haven’t heard from her since. When her father found out; he cut her off.

RE: Greta Van Susteren??

Yes, that name on the list surprised me too. Which just goes to show that intelligence does not necessarily equate to WISDOM.

I loved this from Peaches Geldof, whoever she is:

The socialite, sometimes journalist and model denied she was a party girl and said she was fascinated by Scientology and Physics.

Physics???

(If we had a RINO Scientologist running as an (R) for POTUS, at least half of the negative comments about Scientology would disappear and be replaced by a sudden jolt of instant Scientology apologists...from posters who aren't even Scientologists!)

I'd never thought that conservatives would cater to the notion that there's "inconvenient political truths." But we've seen it rampant among the Rombots!

Her articles always have a female slant...without being feminist. She might.

Jlo’s dad has been in Scientology for over two decades.

So, are they disconnected??? I don’t think so.

Btw, the rumor is that she got fired from American Idol when she asked for $2 million more in salary.

While going through a tough time in my life back in the 80’s, I started reading “Dianetics.” I got about a fourth of the way through the book and realized what a crock of unadulterated bovine scatology Scientology is.

That’s when I turned back to the Bible.
