Skip to comments.Inside Scientology’s strict Sea Org which Suri Cruise faced joining

It is Scientology's higher order where members pledge their allegiance for one billion years - and may have cost Tom Cruise his marriage.
Sending six-year-old Suri to the Sea Organisation, or Sea Org as it is known, is what is said to have been the final straw for Katie Holmes before she filed for divorce.
The group is run like a military clique from the Scientology Gold Base in California which has sniper-style nest bunker that overlooks the entire property.
Members are paid just $50 a week and banned from leaving their base or they are tracked down by a special team who used emotional pressure or physical force.
Former Scientology security chief Gary Morehead has claimed that he tracked down more than 100 Sea Org members who left in his 13 years on the job using what he called a blow drill, referring to the techniques he employed to hunt people down.
If Sea Org members try to leave they are also given a freeloader tab which is a bill for all the work they have received, and can run into six figures.

“The school which alarmed Holmes was the New Village Leadership Academy in Calabasa, California, which received $1.2million from Smith as a donation.
Though the school is secular, it does have ties to Scientology and uses study technology, which was created by Hubbard.”
$50 a week? It’s gone up...
Don’t Sea Org members have to dress like Dick Cavett in navy blazers and nautical caps?
Sounds like a cult.
Looks like a cult.
Acts like a cult.
Must be a duck...............
My family is 100 percent against divorce. However in this case even I make an exception with Katie Holmes. Thank God she is getting away from Tom Cruise and his freakish religion.
Thank God, I have a reactive mind.
Yeah, but her’s and her daughter’s lives are going to be tough and dangerous for a long time to come. This outfit does not take well at all to defectors.
I was invited to join the Sea Org, too.
But I had a commitment for the year 312,445,212 that I just could not break. So I regretfully turned them down......
If the allegations of conduct are true the group should be suppressed.
He bought several small ships and staffed them with a young crew of Scientologists and reportedly went looking for treasure he had hidden in a previous life.The "young crew" wasn't too bright, were they?
Where is Janet Reno now that we need her?!
I lived near the Scientology building in LA and had to deal extensively with the Sea Org folks on a Neighborhood Watch group I set up. They are very, very strange people. And I don’t mean that in a good way.
Janet Reno would not have bothered a group with lots of money, and a demonstrated ability to infiltrate government agencies which annoyed them.
They’re evil ... they prey on the gullible and the emotionally insecure (gee ... actors? Gullible and emotionally insecure??? Ya think?) ... if they didn’t dress up their idiocy in religious trappings, nobody would bat an eye at calling it fraud.
Clinton was too busy currying favor with travolta for Primary Colors. Sandy Berger briefed Travolta like a Senior Senator.
Well at least your neighborhood was protected from burglars and galactic overlord Xenu.
As bad as Dasvid Koresh was, these guys have him beat by a million miles.
If anyone should raid a compound this one should be raided.
