Cruise 'is Christ' of Scientology
Sun online ^ | January 23, 2007 | EMILY SMITH

Posted on 01/23/2007 9:43:34 AM PST by null and void

TOM Cruise is the new “Christ” of Scientology, according to leaders of the cult-like religion.

The Mission: Impossible star has been told he has been “chosen” to spread the word of his faith throughout the world.

And leader David Miscavige believes that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.

A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure.

“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”

Cruise joined the Church of Scientology in the ’80s. Leader L Ron Hubbard claimed humans bear traces of an ancient alien civilisation.

I heard from people who know people who know people that work in the industry that Cruise's homosexuality is one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood.

Gotta love this guy's post on the Sun blog:

Tom Cruise may well be the Messiah.... But this is the test - -flog him to within an inch of his life and then hang him on a cross until his lungs collapse and he is very dead (pierce his lungs with a spear so we know his lungs have filled up with water - scientifically prove he is dead beyond a shadow of a doubt), then bury him in a cave sealed with a huge boulder cutting off the air supply, just in case, and armed guards to do away with any monkey business from his followers... Then if he comes back from the dead, says he is the messiah, ascends on a cloud into heaven in front of 300 amazed people who then spread through the world and multiply to form a new religion that ultimately becomes the underpinning philosophy of the majority of the civilised world for centuries, well, give him the gold BluePeter messiah badge.... -- LongDistanceRunner, US

I'll turn Cruise in to the local mental health department for thirty pieces of silver. Kissing him on the cheek will cost a lot more.

Cruise joined the Church of Scientology in the ’80s. Leader L Ron Hubbard claimed humans bear traces of an ancient alien civilisation.

Wow. Talk about understating all that is nutty in Sciencefictiontology.

So let's nail him up, let him die, bury him, and see if he comes back alive in a few days.

"Leader L Ron Hubbard claimed humans bear traces of an ancient alien civilisation."

L Ron put out a more goofy far out creation story than any I have heard so far. A Scientologists brain would have to be in the pounded into jam stage before they would believe any of it.

It must be that by the time they are initiated into the so called inner mysteries, crock of crap tho they are, they have spent too much time and money and are so indoctrinated and incriminated that they cannot quit.
