Tom Cruise and Scientology: The Video Leaked on the Net

A four-year-old video of Tom Cruise talking about Scientology is making the rounds in the blogosphere. It's just in time for a new unauthorized biography by Andrew Morton, alleging, amongst other things, that his baby Suri was impregnated conceived a la Rosemary's Baby with the preserved semen of the deceased Scientology founder and sci-fi author L. Ron Hubbard.

But back to the video: In it, Tom talks about how he wants to spread the message of Scientology.

He said this about being a Scientologist: "It's rough and tumble and it's wild and woolly and it's a blast. It's a blast. It really is fun because there is nothing better than going out there and fighting the fight and suddenly you see things are better."

And please note the purty, shiny logo of the Church of Scientology.

Update 1/17/07: Predictably, the video was taken off YouTube. Head ye on to Gawker, who I just found out - goes to show you how I live under a rock - started this whole thing anyhow.

I've always thought Tom Cruise was hot ever since I first saw _Endless Love_ in February 1982! As for whether or not he ever gets back with Nicole, I think he's going to be more likely this polygamist and he'll be married to Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman and me all at the same time!

"You really have to wonder how all these posters can despise Tom Cruise and acuse him of being a nut and insult his chosen religion by calling it a cult, yet not one of them knows Tom first hand, nor are they or have they been Scientologists.

You people ought to wonder why your so opinionated about something you know nothing about.

How can someone be so ignorant? Are you all just puppets of the media?"

If the media didn't like him, he wouldn't be acting anymore. If anything the media is embracing his new life and won't shut up about him.

How do you know we know nothing about it? News flash, there are books out there about Scientology, published by the founder of Scientology explaining what it is. Are you in junior high or something? Maybe it's YOU who needs to read up on Scientology instead of defending some actor with a bad haircut who does movies that are one hit wonders and will never become classics.

A friend of mine lived with a room mate who is a Scientologist. He has all his stuff packed up in boxes; the guy disappeared. Not even his family knows where he is. The world has to wake up and ban this religion before it gets out of hand. I believe Germany has banned Scientology.

personally, i think that Mike Huckabee saying that it is easier to change the constitution (add in an amendment banning gay marriage and banning abortion) than it is to change God's word is 1000 times more scary and 1000 times more nuts than anything tom has said or will say. that man is actually running for president and people have actually voted for him in the primaries!
