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

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.

Scientology is Mormonisms greatest nightmare..

For a hundred years the Mormons just quietly plugged along..
Just minding their own business.. then BLAM up jumps some holy Moonbatery just as weird and strange called scientology..

A Mitt Romney and Tom Cruise meeting of political minds
would be critical mass.. for a poo-poo bomb..

Just so's ya know, and speaking for myself only: I find that picture extremely offensive. It's blasphemous. (So is David Miscavidge's nonsense, which inspired it.) Yes, I know it's a political cartoon; yes, I know you're making fun of Tom Cruise. I think that defacing an icon of Christ the King is a lousy way to do that.

Just so you know, I understand the way you feel, but, Tom really suffers by that comparison. He just doesn't look the slightest bit savior like...

None of my business, I know, but I have wondered why/how Greta Von Sustern subscribed to the tenets of Scientology.

"...Cruise's homosexuality..."

Making his child with Holmes a virgin birth? Let's not go there...

Scientologists have officially jumped the shark.

No one really knows if the turkey baster was virginal or not

Criticize if you must, but Star Ship Troopers was The Passion of Christ for crackpot religionists.

Starship Troopers? Did you mean Battlefield Earth?

Possibility... it had something to do with John Travolta having a weird beard if I recall the plot corrctly.

If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.

That is, without a doubt, the worst pun I have ever heard - or rather, read... :)

I find it extremely offensive as well, in keeping with the entire topic at hand. My point in posting it was: who in their right mind....? In hindsight perhaps I shouldn't have but it seemed to underscore the grotesqueness of this subject.
