CRUISE HEADING FOR A MAJOR CRASH... We did it!
CONGRATS GUYS IT LOOKS LIKE WE DID IT!!
News agencies the world over are reported MI:III is doomed to be a commercial failure, solely because of Tom! Here's an example taken from the NY Times!
New 'Mission'; Opens Weaker Than Expected
LOS ANGELES, May 7 — Paramount Pictures and its leading star, Tom Cruise, failed to live up to expectations this weekend when "Mission: Impossible III" opened to weak numbers at the domestic box office despite a barrage of public appearances by Mr. Cruise to promote the film.
The poor opening followed nearly a year of public mocking of Mr. Cruise, Hollywood's most reliable star and the centerpiece of Paramount's biggest franchise, across the pop culture landscape — by Internet bloggers and late-night comedians and constantly on tabloid covers — after his public, over-the-top wooing of the actress Katie Holmes and his outspoken remarks against psychiatry and antidepressant medications last year.
Opening in 4,054 theaters, "Mission: Impossible III" had estimated ticket sales of $48 million for the weekend, according to Exhibitor Relations, almost $10 million less than the second "Mission: Impossible" movie in 2000, which opened in 385 fewer theaters and at lower ticket prices. Based on market research, the film had been expected to reach about $65 million at the box office.
Many in Hollywood had been watching expectantly to see if the negative publicity surrounding Mr. Cruise would have an effect at the box office, and this weekend — as "Mission: Impossible III" kicked off the film industry's peak summer moviegoing period — it appeared as if it had.
Paramount reported that "Mission: Impossible III" took in $118 million worldwide in 55 countries, doing well in Asia, Latin America and Britain and poorly in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where there is public opposition to Mr. Cruise's championing of his religion, Scientology.
But Paramount executives said that Mr. Cruise's public image did not hurt the film. "I don't believe that is a factor in how the movie opened," said Rob Moore, Paramount's president for worldwide marketing, distribution and operations. He noted that the opening domestic figure was close to that of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" last summer, which starred Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and said the "Mission" franchise was struggling against the fact that it had been six years since the previous installment.
Others disagreed, noting that Mr. Cruise personally spearheaded the marketing campaign. He visited four countries in rapid succession ahead of the opening — going to Rome, Paris, London and Mexico City — and on Friday attended four different premieres in Manhattan alone, traveling by helicopter, fire truck, subway and boat in a promotional blitz across the city.
"I can't fault the marketing campaign; I can't fault the trailers," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations, which tracks the box office, adding that the film, directed by J. J. Abrams, received strong reviews. "The only X factor here is the Tom Cruise factor."
The derision of Mr. Cruise began last spring when he embarked on his relationship with Ms. Holmes just as both actors were preparing to release big-budget movies, "War of the Worlds" for Mr. Cruise and "Batman Begins" for Ms. Holmes. The news media and fans expressed skepticism at the public nature of the romance, which intensified even as the formerly private Mr. Cruise increasingly involved Scientology in his business affairs.
Since then, Mr. Cruise has evolved into a kind of cultural punch line. In "Scary Movie 4," which is still in theaters, one scene is a parody of Mr. Cruise's couch-jumping appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" last May.
Several reviews of "Mission: Impossible 3" pointed out that Mr. Cruise's public persona had become a distraction when watching him on the big screen. "It's impossible to watch 'M:I-3' without asking: Do we still, you know, like Tom Cruise?" the critic Owen Gleiberman wrote in Entertainment Weekly, while Manohla Dargis wrote in The New York Times: "It would be a stretch to say that Tom Cruise needs a hit. What this guy needs is an intervention."
In addition to being the kickoff for the summer movie season, "Mission: Impossible III" was the first major release that had been given a green light by Paramount under Brad Grey, who took over as chairman in early 2005. Mr. Grey caused a stir last year when the studio threatened to pull the plug on the movie just ahead of production unless the budget was cut and Mr. Cruise — who is also a producer of the film — cut his fee.
As a result of that stand, the budget was trimmed to $165 million from about $200 million, and Mr. Cruise agreed to take about 25 percent of the movie's gross revenue, several percentage points less than his original deal, according to a senior Paramount executive.
Paramount executives said that exit polls this weekend showed the film's audience to be mainly over 25, adding that they hoped strong word-of-mouth would help drive a younger audience to the film as the summer continued. But market research ahead of the movie's release also showed that Mr. Cruise had lost ground among an important part of his fan base, female moviegoers.
In Hollywood many were left this weekend pondering the future of star power and looking ahead to the next test case, "The Da Vinci Code," starring Tom Hanks, on May 19. As Mr. Dergarabedian put it, "It shows you the importance of the star and their public image."

WHAT EXACTLY IS SCIENTOLOGY ANYWAY???
A lot of people have emailed me asking exactly what Scientology is. Well, here's the best explanation I've seen... read on:
In the late 1940s, pulp writer L. Ron Hubbard declared:
"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion" Reader's Digest reprint, May 1980, p.1
The following is an extract from a text by ex-Scientologist Roland Rashleigh-Berry. Roland wrote:
"This is my personal opinion. I grant permission to anyone to reproduce this material. This description has been tailored to people who have never been Scientologists and seek a simple and short explanation as to what it is and why it is surrounded by controversy." This extract is taken from the web's #1 Scientology info site: www.xenu.net
In a Nutshell
The Church of Scientology is a vicious and dangerous cult that masquerades as a religion. Its purpose is to make money. It practices a variety of mind-control techniques on people lured into its midst to gain control over their money and their lives. Its aim is to take from them every penny that they have and can ever borrow and to also enslave them to further its wicked ends.
It was started in the 1950s by a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard in fulfilment to his declared aim to start a religion to make money. It is an offshoot to a method of psychotherapy he concocted from various sources which he named "Dianetics". Dianetics is a form of regression therapy. It was then further expanded to appear more like a religion in order to enjoy tax benefits. He called it "Scientology".
Scientology is a confused concoction of crackpot, dangerously applied psychotherapy, oversimplified, idiotic and inapplicable rules and ideas and science-fiction drivel that is presented to its members (at the "advanced" levels) as profound spiritual truth.
The Harm it Does to a Person
The results of applying their crackpot psychotherapy (called "auditing") is to weaken the mind. The mind goes from a rational state to an irrational one as the delusional contents of the subconscious mind are brought to the surface and are assumed to be valid. It also makes a person more susceptible to suggestion since it submerges the critical thinking faculties of the mind into a partial subconscious state. It results in a permanent light hypnotic trance and so from thenceforth that person can be more easily controlled. The person will, to a much greater extent, believe and do whatever they are told. And of course this is used to the full in persuading them to hand over further money and dedicating themselves further to the cult.
The results of applying their oversimplified and inapplicable rules in life is to lose the ability to think rationally and logically. A person loses the ability to think for themselves and so they lose the ability to challenge incorrect ideas. This makes them easier to control. It also isolates and alienates the person from society so that they withdraw from normal society and into their "Scientology" society. This further increases their susceptibility to the influence of their group. They end up being afraid of society, believing all society to be controlled by a group of drug companies, psychiatrists and financiers all of whom report to more remote masters. In other words they are in a state of mass paranoia. They therefore avoid reading newspapers and the like since they fear it will disturb their safe Scientology world. It is a downward spiral into madness.
The science fiction content of Scientology is revealed to them after they have reached the state they call "Clear", meaning freed from the aberrations of the mind. However, perhaps "brainwashed" would be a more applicable word to describe the mental state of someone who has survived the near entire delusional contents of their subconscious mind brought to the surface and presented to them as "truth". On the "advanced" levels (called OT levels) above the state of "Clear" they encounter the story of Xenu. Xenu was supposed to have gathered up all the overpopulation in this sector of the galaxy, brought them to Earth and then exterminated them using hydrogen bombs. The souls of these murdered people are then supposed to infest the body of everyone. They are called "body thetans". On the advanced levels of Scientology a person "audits out" these body thetans telepathically by getting them to re-experience their being exterminated by hydrogen bombs. So people on these levels assume all their bad thoughts and faulty memories are due to these body thetans infesting every part of their body and influencing them mentally. Many Scientologists go raving mad at this point if they have not done so already.
The "Ethics" Trap
On the surface the Church of Scientology seems reasonable. The insane content of it is only revealed to a person when the early stuff has done its work and made them more susceptible. After a short while a person "believes" that Scientology is doing them good. They are then persuaded to help their new-found group further by donating money and/or working for the organisation for almost no money. Many people do exactly that.
"Ethics" is used to good effect to trap a person. A person’s natural tendency to do good is worked upon. Yes - they want to be more ethical, but what is ethical? This is where a clever trick is pulled! "Ethics" is redefined by Scientology in such a way that to be ethical is to be a better Scientologist and obey the "church". Young people, not yet made cynical through the machinations of life and politics, are very keen to contribute to the world and to be ethical. So the "ethics" trick works easily into persuading them to join the "church". Many of them join an elite group called the "Sea Org" where they become brainwashed slaves. There they work a hundred hour week for almost no pay. There they are subject to every cruel whim of their masters. It is a living hell that they endure because of the conditioning they have received and this now perverted sense of ethics that they have accepted. The "Sea Org" is the ultimate in brainwashed slavery. They are expected to work harder and harder to achieve ever higher targets of production. If they fail to meet their targets there are various penalties. One of them is to be put onto a diet of beans and rice and to miss sleep. Another is to be sentenced to a period on the RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force). This is the equivalent to "hard labour". Such is the extent of their brainwashing that they actually write "success stories" when they complete their sentences.
Brainwashing Bites Back
There is no doubt at all that L. Ron Hubbard incorporated brainwashing techniques into Scientology to put people under his control. He even wrote a "brainwashing manual" which is still in existence today. However there was a cruel twist in his scheme. He fell victim of it himself. In creating his devoted slaves, the Sea Org, he created an audience that believed every word he said. Now L. Ron Hubbard had an over-active imagination plus delusions of grandeur. The negative feedback he would obtain by being part of normal society was replaced by the positive feedback from his devoted followers. Through this his imagination got the better of him and combined with his delusions of grandeur, his thinking became increasingly bizarre which, on acceptance, led on to more bizarre thinking and the idea that he and Scientology had the job of saving the entire universe He wanted to take over the world in order to further Scientology’s aims to save the universe and so branches of Scientology were set up to try to influence governments and gain positions where they could influence to world to a high degree. So what started out as a mass confidence trick backed up with brainwashing became a monstrous and insane organisation with fantastic, fanatical ideals. Because of this change, the Church of Scientology survived the death of their founder. It is like a runaway monster machine that tramples on society and peoples lives that is very difficult to stop.
Stop the Monster
The whole machinery called the "Church of Scientology" needs to be jammed somehow so that more people do not get sucked in and the people already in it have a chance to get out. We must not forget the people already in this "church". Although they are the ones perpetrating this crime they are also the victims. They need our help as well.
And here we come to the "War on the Internet".
The War on the Internet
The "War on the Internet" is the war between the Church of Scientology and Internet users who copy their documents and post them on the Internet.
The people who are copying their material and webbing it are using the huge accessibility of the world-wide web to get information out to people to warn them of the insanity and danger of this cult. They are doing it for the public good. The hope is that if they can get this information out to the public and make it broadly known then people will be forewarned and will not join the cult. If they can starve the cult of new members in this way then the whole organisation may collapse and then the existing members can be helped to return to society. But of course the people within the cult believe only their own founders interpretation of things so they use every means they can to stop this. Usually the method they use is harassment through lengthy and expensive legal processes. Sometimes it is physical harassment. Sometimes worse!
The people who post and host the copyrighted and confidential works of Scientology are risking themselves to help warn the public about the dangers of Scientology. They have a strong sense of public duty and care for their fellow men. They are breaking copyright laws it is true but they are acting out of conscience and out of high human ideals. As they get broken down by legal or physical harassment more rise to take their place.
I hope this short piece of mine is a befitting and deserving introduction to these people, the "Warriors of the Internet".

I just recently watched Tom's rant over Matt Lauer's (sp?) so called
ignorance about psychaitry (sp?) and i got to thinking ... Tom offered no
proof about his knowledge of the subject. If Matt is half the journalist he
makes himself out to be, he would have known that the subject of psychiatry
(sp?) would have come up in the course of the interview and would have done
some sort of research, possibly involving phone interviews with experts in
the field that didn't get their training from the Hubbard Academy of Mental
Health Sciences (TM). What could Mr. Cruse learn in the Celebrity Center
(TM)? That people who diagree with the Co$ (TM) are stupid and corruptive?
But I'm a fair man, so I'm offering Mr. Cruse a chance to redeem himself. If
he can offer proof to either scientomogy.info, Operation Clambake, or the
Today show of any sort of non-honorary degree (A.S., B.S., M.S., M.D., or
Ph.D.) in the mental health sciences from any respected and accredited (sp?)
university or medical school that's not connected to the Co$ (TM) I will not
only retract my statements against Mr. Cruse, but donate US$100.00 of my own
money to the Co$ (TM) in my own name.

DO NOT DONATE TO SCIENTOLOGY & JOIN US IN A WORLDWIDE BOYCOTT OF MI:3!
IT'S HAPPENING! Tom Cruise's recent repeated massively irresponsible and potentially life-endangering statements that those on prescribed psychiatric medication should cease using them and use "exercise and vitamins and stuff"... combined with his promotion of what most consider a cult of Scientology has horrified a huge percentage of the public. In fact, our survey results below show from almost 2,500 responses a MASSIVE 83% of you feel just like us and are prepared to Boycott Mission Impossible III.
Well some of the major anti-Scientology websites are pulling together to do just that. We feel it's time someone made a stance against "Dr. Cruise's" bullying tactics, and every dollar he earns he gives a % to Scientology. Which means every time we pay to see a Cruise movie we're funding his cult! Well not anymore. Head to www.boycottmi3.com and put your name down in a worldwide boycott of M:I:III. You'll have a clear conscience, and help send a very powerful message to Cruise that you won't be donating to his cult this year. Beside, MI:II sucked anyway!

SCIENTOLOGIST FIGHT'S BACK (AGAIN!)
I'm to address your email in parts (your words are in italics)
"It's me again. I'm the one who said you should just come out and say you are anti-Cruise. (You posted my comment.)
You're saying you're not anti-Cruise. Come on. Let's call a spade a spade here. You have numerous cartoons and whatnot making fun of him. If you just disagreed with his medical stance on psychiatric drugs then you wouldn't say all that other unrelated stuff about his marriage to Katie, etc. I mean, I can understand some satire but come on. You also have it in for the Church as you spell it "Church [with "Cult" crossed out] of $cientology". You're gonna say you don't have it in for either of these? Give me a break.
You are very confused. When did I say I didn't "have it in" for the "church" and it's practises. I said I do not hate Tom Cruise and I do not. I despise the churches position on drugs (that is; totally against any psych meds) and created this site to show the world how moronic TC is looking promoting this garbage, Yes I have it in for the church in some regards - I never said otherwise. Please learn to read.
I'm not sitting here trying to tell you to stop what you're doing on your website but at least be upfront about your purpose. You hate Tom Cruise and you hate Scientology. I'm not even going to say that this is wrong but just that it's the truth.
I do not hate Tom Cruise. I have never even met him.... in fact I can't think of one person I "hate". But yes, you're right I totally disagree with your church's position on meds and have never claimed otherwise. FLUNK!
In regards to your definition of "cult", usually, and this is not only in Scientology studying, you pick ONE definition that applies, but for argument's sake I'll take them all (keep in mind I am someone in a position of knowledge to be able to comment on these):
Great.... trust me so am I.
1. No one worships L. Ron Hubbard, no one. He is greatly admired, respected, celebrated, etc. but none of us pray to him or say he is a god or even demi-god, which is what worship is. He is just an appreciated person. He's called "Source" as he is the source of all the teachings of Dianetics and Scientology. Very simple. He's not the source of life or anything like that, just of the teachings.
Def: formal religious veneration : WORSHIP (in this sense; "reverence offered a divine being or supernatural power; also : an act of expressing such reverence ")
I can certainly assume you haven't reached OTVIII then huh? Well you're in no position to comment. Got news for you that's revealed then and it's all bad..
2. All religions (and cults) have this. How is this different from any of those? You drill the stuff so you know how to apply it exactly and get the results. What's wrong with that?
Def; a system of religious beliefs (something believed; especially : a tenet or body of tenets [a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true;] held by a group) and ritual (according to religious law or social custom); also : its body of adherents (or one that adheres [ to give support or maintain loyalty] : as a believer in or advocate especially of a particular idea or church)
The difference here is that it is a serious crime to alter to amend any writings or doctrine of "the Source" - LRH's teachings are absolute. There is no other way. It's called totalitarianism
3. This is more of an opinion than anything. You can say you think this stuff is out of the usual but so? Religions are different and some may have some "unusual" practices that you're not used to. I find hyms very strange but so? No big deal though. And auditing is not that different from counseling (not psychotherapy) only it's much more precise and formalized. Listening to someone talk about their problems has been around since the birth of humanity. If you think it's weird so be it--I guess....
Def: a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents.
Yes but whilst hooked up to a crude lie detector with all your "confessions" filed away in your own little folder - a folder that you'll never see I'll wager.
4. It says "cure" for disease but you yourself said Hubbard said you got resistance. That doesn't even fit by your own words. Resistance is not the same as cure and resistance is not the same as immunity. Clears and OT's can still get sick and they do. I've even seen this. Gaining these spiritual states just makes you more unlikely to get sick for various technical reasons which I do not have time to explain. You can read about this stuff you know.
Def: a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator <health cults>
"The basic use of Dianetics is to make a well body and to augment physical treatment.
Any injurious experience can be erased by Dianetics. It is very easy to use and if one wants people well and happy it should be used at every occasion.
Recovery from disease under treatment is speeded by Dianetic auditing. Where the incident of the break is, with any chain, run out, a broken limb will heal (by x-ray evidence) in two instead of six weeks.
Chronic, which is to say, long-term illnesses cease when audited by Dianetics and then medical treatment which was earlier ineffective.
Whole classes of "mentally retarded" children have been made more normal by teachers in London County Council schools using relatively unskilled Dianetics.
Tiredness, unwanted sensations, bizarre pains and aches, bad hearing or sight also routinely respond to Dianetic processing.
The sickness and death rate of persons who are part of Dianetic groups is only a small fraction of that of other groups.
Pilots audited with Dianetics, by a test involving a whole squadron, went without a single even minor accident for the following year.
Scientists audited with Dianetics have greatly improved intelligence.
Dianetics raises IQ as a side product to usual auditing, at a rate of about one point of IQ per hour of processing.
Withered limbs, skin blotches and rashes and even blindness and deafness have all responded to Dianetics.
Possibly the point which counted most against Dianetics in the early attacks on it was that it did a vast array of things. The truth was, it actually did them. When you have the answer to the human mind as in Dianetics, of course anything caused by the mind can be remedied."
Hmmmm... sounds like a claim to me!
5.a. I don't see how great devotion is anything different from other religions. I mean, look at what nuns do. I guess we'll have to see though if this is a "fad".
b. See above.
Def: great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion
Are you trying to tell me the Bible, Koran or Islam are intellectual fads? Certainly Dianetics PERFECTLY fits this description.
With your interpretation of these definitions I could easily fit in another more mainstream religion into any of these. You fail to really show me how Scientology differs as a cult than any other religions because technically, and this is something acknowledged by theologists, a religion IS also a cult. But in today's terms "cult" is used as a term to show contempt rather than used in its fullest technical sense.
My point is, even the people who share your views and like this website would say you don't like Tom Cruise or Scientology. I am not going to change your mind on this but you should at least come out and be straight about this. You make it like you're just angry about what Cruise said about Brooke Shields and antidepressants and psychiatry and all that, but you and your supporters go into Tom's personal life and how wrong Scientology is. That makes no sense. If you just want to stick to the medical issues then bring up some medical facts as all this other stuff has no relation to it. Let's just call a spade a spade here: you don't like and disagree with Cruise and Scientology. That's all I'm asking for. "
I've never denied I disagree with TC and his opinions (why do you think this site exists!). Where have a stated this?

SCIENTOLOGIST COMMENT OF THE WEEK....
"The fact is that I got involved in the Church 33 years ago. (When I was 22 years old) Within a year or so I went from being a failed student, (I attended some of the top schools in the New York City area) to a person with a much higher degree of literacy. Before Scientology I took "recreational" drugs. Pot, LSD, etc. After Scio I stopped taking these things because I learned what they did to the mind. Something I did not learn outside of the Church. Before Scio I had problems with communication. This I handled with Scio. I can go on and on with the miracles and positive changes I've gotten from the Church. My sister was put on psychiatric drugs over 25 years ago and she has been in a "chemical straijacket" ever since. I think if you really knew what you were attacking - you wouldn't do so. Because it really helps people - and I've seen many many people helped with it."
I am certain there may well be many other stories like yours... and thank you for writing. Also, I appreciate that drugs were not the answer for your sister. That much is obvious. BUT DOES TOM HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL EVERYONE THAT DRUGS CANNOT HELP THEM? Can you tell me you know of no one who has not benefited in some way from these drugs (Brooke Shields perhaps??)
You have to understand, everyone here seems to agree that yes too many drugs may well be prescribed... but that gives Mr Cruise NO RIGHT to tell every single one of them to get off them!!! Vitamins and exercise are NOT the solution to EVERY case... you cannot tell me that.

COMMENT OF THE WEEK
And if you want to read some REALLY fun stories - try going to www.fqresearch.org or logging onto the Yahoo group quinolones. Yep, the much vaunted Cipro, Bayer admits that it causes tissue necrosis (that's tissue death) and changes in connective tissues *at the cellular level*. I mean, don't go so far with making fun of this idea that you miss what's in the headlines. And these are not even all psychiatric drugs. Cipro is an antibiotic that now has a warning label as to peripheral neuropathy, and other serious, harmful effects.
No, I'm not a Scientologist either. I'm a Christian. But everyone just make sure to read all the side effects that comes with any prescription, because it's based on post marketing. Laugh at Tom all you want but he just may have a point in there somewhere. "

OUR PICK! COMMENT OF THE WEEK!
"Someone call a doctor! Better yet, call the whole dang doctor team. Please make sure they remember to bring a extra long-sleeved jacket and several syringes packed with anti-psychotic drugs. Maybe a few vials of pretty poppers too.
Seems the "Cruise" has done a better job at making a case FOR psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry than convincing us of how EVIL and destuctive they are. "For God's sake Tom, stop fooling around. Come clean and tell us who your really campaigning for". I ain't no shrink, but it seems pretty obvious that anyone who publically practices "Couch Jumping", floor pounding and the arm pumping YES!! from their knees, while laughing maniacally, is a perfect candidate for the "Gone off the Deep-End Poster Boy of the Year". Infact his proclamation of being a sane, well-adjusted, all knowing guy, is evidence enough to earn him a "Room with a View" on the 16th floor. I've heard that the more adamantly the truly insane deny their insanity, the more truly insane they are.
BTW Glen..You really ought to be ashamed of yourself. Exploiting an insane, dillusional,Megalomaniac just so you can have a website about an insane, dillusional, Megalomaniac's antics is down-right SICK! Just because I spend hours reading your blog, your links and watching videos. And so what if I have to keep extra panties by my computor cuz I keep pissin' myself from laughing so hard. And it doesn't matter that I voted to boycott MI3(BTW2 I vow to never, ever see it.Made the same vow with The Titanic and have kept it to this day.(all the hype made me sick.)),or signed a petition to have CoS's tax exempt status removed. And who cares that you bring awareness to many and maybe even save some helpless victim from falling into a Money Grubbin' cult.
AWWW!!HELL!! Who am I kidding?! You Glen are my HERO! Never surrender! Never give up!
BTW3..Let me know if I heard right about the whole insanity denial thing. I await your reply, but no hurry. I know your a busy man. In the mean time...got a few new videos to watch.. "
TC certainly has restored my faith in the medical profession... you're dead right... the whole pharmaceutical profession should have him made as their official mascot... you know the "this your brain on drugs" egg campaign. They could use TC jumping about with the slogan: "This could be you off your meds. See a specialist before Cruise Syndrome sets in." (quick someone trademark that!)
While I could go comment about how I think you're wrong on stuff, blah, blah, blah, that would be a waste of time as you would just "discredit" it and the usual.
All I'm here to say is you say you are not anti-Cruise but there is a whole website here against him. Yes, I know you're just trying to make some funny points but it's obvious that you're doing it to make him look bad, not make some sort of humorous commentary. Just come out and say you don't like Tom Cruise as a person, even though you might like him as an actor. I just believe in being frank and saying you are not anti-Cruise is not true at all.
And in regards to the cult thing, you quoted some definitions out of a dictionary but that does not mean you know what it means as you have not pointed out the one that is being used in this case.
I am not anti-Cruise... before he started this propaganda regime I would have proudly stated I was a Cruise fan! But c'mon let's be realistic here;
NO ONE CAN POSSIBLY ARGUE THAT IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE FOR TOM CRUISE TO EFFECTIVELY TELL EVERY CHILD/ADULT ON PRESCRIBED MEDICATION FOR A "CHEMICAL IMBALANCE" (DEPRESSION, BI-POLAR, SCHIZOPHRENIA, ADD/ADHD...) TO SUDDENLY STOP THEIR MEDS AND START EXERCISING AND TAKING VITAMINS.
Think about how many people his statements could have (and from our letters HAS HAD) on those who are unwell?
It was irresponsible, ignorant and dangerous and if my site pokes a little fun at him for doing that and possibly makes those people think twice before following his advice then I'm happy.
You mentioned the definitions of a cult. I quoted the Merriam-Webster online dictionary and it's five different meanings of the word "cult"
1. formal religious veneration. Worship.
2. system of religious beliefs and ritual; also : its body of adherents
3. a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents
4. a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator
5. a: great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad
b: a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion
I do not need to point out the "one" as Scientology has all 5!
1. Extreme veneration for LRH; Calling him the Source (capital S) and the OTVIII proclamation which I will not mention
2. Dianetics and Scientology have written doctrine that must be followed or "FLUNK!" Start drill again
3. hardly needs explaining... does auditing seem orthodox to you?
4. once "clear" LRH makes several claims as to resistance to illness/disease
5. a: Person: LRH, idea/movement/book; Dianetics
b: Group: Scientologists.
Hope that's "Clear"

IDIOT OF THE WEEK RESPONDS
"So, Glen, you are an idiot.
It is not because you don't speak english correctly that you are a "Hubbardspeak".
Try to speak french, please, answer me in french..."
I of course was not aware you were French, but still your original post makes NO SENSE! Read it again;
Like... w-w-w-what?! I likewise would not attempt to reply to you in French as I would look as stupid as you do
"So now Lisa deserve to be
bashed (but she died).
I beleive [sic] you don't give a
damn she died if you want scientologists who are "morons""idiots" like
you and others says (but this is not the case, AT ALL, you dumbasses
[sic]) to go away and crash.
How can you come to defend her? you insult her!
you are a jealous loser or what?
please, know your goal!
wtf do you want Cruise to do with it?
that he goes away or not "your" Lisa won't come back and scientology
won't stop, at all. "
I am not a scientologist, at all. I hate scientology and certainely more
than you. It's been A LONG TIME I'm reading on it, and the "why are they
dead" you dare to recommand me, well, thanks, I am aware of it since I've
got internet, in 2001.
You, you just know now thanks to Tom cruise. Am I correct?
Very very wrong. I have been studying cults and Hubbard for 5 ("cinq" just so you understand) years - that's one ("un") more that you even! I've read "Dianetics" (twice, well, as well as one could ever be expected to), "Clear Mind Clear Body", all the OT level docs, and hundreds of Hubbard's bulletins and "scriptures" and read "Messiah or a Madman", "Bare faced Messiah", "A Piece of Blue Sky", and probably a dozen books on LGATs, unconscious
influence and mind control. So, Dr Edison, wrong - AGAIN.
"Three: make a mental effort to understand my english, like any other respectful normal
human beings do, or shut up. You are an arrogant jerk, racist and stupid.
I did a lot to prevent people of co$, because I know Tom Cruise very well,
and I'm a big fan (oh it bother you?)
You hate so much that you spread bullshit like "Our Nobel Peace prize winner
here believes people here are jealous of Lisa"
I am waiting for you to reconnect your damaged brain, and make apologies to
me now for faking my comments on it.
"Jealous of Tom Cruise" was what you were "supposed" to understand, Nobel
YOU ARE TELLING ME TO BE RESPECTFUL? Oh, hello pot, I'm the kettle! Read your first post again - do the words "jealous loser" sound familiar? Mate, if you can't take it, don't give it! And racist? HOW WAS I TO KNOW YOU WERE FRENCH!?
"I know people in sect,and sorry for you and your fans (include yourself) here that I am not a
loser full of hate and shit. I don't see things like you, I have more
personnal experiences than you obviously.
I know a lot about it, you maybe need to learn again, like the poster here
with the Lisa murder.I agree with him but if he really want to moves things,
why don't he show up, manifest in the streets where he live and create an
association? that's what I'm trying to say. And that hating here is stupid
useless and nasty.
What I am trying to say is "don't lose your time on an inpidual because he
is a celebrity". It is stupid, but if you want to harm, like Glen, GO. I
hope you'll find satisfaction, in a way. Like Glen."
My reason for having this site about Cruise is because of his statements lately. I will say it again;
I do believe that the statement Tom has made recently stating that people should not be using (certain) prescribed medication is not only ignorant but darn right dangerous. Life threatening in fact. Tom states that Brooke and Matt are ignorant about the history of psychiatry - well he is most certainly ignorant of the circumstances of every medicated inpidual in the world, and as such his comments were outrageous.
If seeing this site makes people think twice before following that advice then personally I believe that's a wise decision. This site has had close to 10 million hits! Do you know how many more people know about Co$ now?! It's the OSA's worst nightmare.
Glen? who is the loser of the week?
you better remove my post off and your hurting faking comment! Also, I take
medications, I don't like that someone is MAKING FUCKING JOKE ON IT! idiot!
proof you don't give a shit about brooke shields and the cos'dead!!!
ASS****.Sorry but really, you don't give a shit about anyone, don't you? you
like to harm, damage, insult? well, how do you like me insult you hein?
Don't delete my post, I will put it again and again, because yes,I am
sick,and maybe a loser. That, you got it right, jerk.
NO RESPECT FOR GLEN ANYMORE"
How have I made a joke of you taking meds? I didn't know nor presume that and even if I did... my God do you have a clue? Speaking of meds... calm down or go take them now before your head explodes!
PS; For someone who accuses me of insulting him you've called me the following; "idiot" "racist" "loser" "stupid" "ASS****" and "jerk". Can someone spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E???
COMMENT OF THE WEEK
Two things bother me most about this hollywood actor:
1) He is disrespectful, arrogant, MISINFORMED, and completely out of his league while speaking on the issues of medication and pyschiatry [sic]. I work in a Hospice unit and I would hate to see what he has to say about medicating the dying. Heck, we already know what he thinks about labor and delivery. Stick to your alien fantasies Tom and leave the real world issues to the experts.
2) He has somehow mislead, misguided and overall mystified a young lady who just so happened to have a lead roll in my favorite movie of the year (Batman Begins). I hope she someday wakes up from her star-struck pyschosis [sic] and realizes that she just flushed her career and her life down the toilet. Way to go Tom...corrupted another one.
Overall, I support the right to speak and defend oneself and therefore I'm happy to hear you've decided to fight it out. Tom Cruise and the other Scientologists who support him need to be confronted about seriously incorrect information that a (sometimes) naive public can buy into. " - Anonymous

LOSER OF THE WEEK!
I beleive [sic] you don't give a damn she died if you want scientologists who are "morons""idiots" like you and others says (but this is not the case, AT ALL, you dumbasses [sic]) to go away and crash.

wtf do you want Cruise to do with it?
that he goes away or not "your" Lisa won't come back and scientology won't stop, at all.
And read me to the end and the next post too.
ALWAYS THE SAME PEOPLE WHO POST HERE. AND THEY ALL KNOW "GLEN" " - Anonymous
You are obviously a Co$ member and are used to "Hubbardspeak" as you certainly can't write coherent English!
Our Nobel Peace prize winner here believes people here are jealous of Lisa. Yes, we are all jealous of Lisa... you got it buddy. COULD YOU BE MORE CLUELESS?! If you do not know the history behind this horrific tragedy visit http://lisa.whyaretheydead.net
Finally, almost 1000 posts, 9,000,000 hits on the site and you think "they" all "know" me?!
You have nothing between your ears but Body Thetans and Engrams... (translated... ZERO!)

"Seems strange to me you would spend so much time and effort on this subject. So many negatives towards someone that, as far as I can tell, has done nothing to you. So many wrongs out there and simply because Cruise is acting differently than you think he should, he becomes your target. Human decency is on a decline in this world, and while that didn't start here, this is just an example of the lack of common respect that is prevalent in todays world.Look, all this site does it take statements Tom has made himself and put them back to back, and also some satirical material that has been produced by others - all of this already exists on the net and all of it is freely available. Nothing here has been produced by me. Not one single thing.
"Glen, it is VERY VERY anti-Cruise, too much. What is your point? you want to destroy him and his family and make people hate him? if so, you should be ashamed."
So, does bringing Tom's own statements and the work of others together make me anti-Cruise? or does it simply mean that there's a lot of people who have a lot to say about him, his actions, and/or his religion and here's a place they can freely and anonymously express them. It's amazing how many emails I get stating that they are so grateful because they have been too scared...
What is my agenda? Well, number one is for a bit of laugh!
I do believe that the statement Tom has made recently stating that people should not be using (certain) prescribed medication is not only ignorant but darn right dangerous. Life threatening in fact. Tom states that Brooke and Matt are ignorant about the history of psychiatry - well he is most certainly ignorant of the circumstances of every medicated individual in the world, and as such his comments were outrageous.
If seeing this site makes people think twice before following that advice then personally I believe that's a wise decision.
By no means am I anti-Cruise! I have at least 6-8 of his films. But, his statements deserve to be looked at a little more closely... and as such, here we are...

COMMENT OF THE WEEK ;)
"I would like to tell how Tom Cruise has impacted our family's life. I have a daughter who is bi-polar and must take medication. It is a disorder that, so far, no one can help other than with medications. When Tom was everywhere doing his rants about medication, she listened intently (btw, bi-polar folks can be led very easily so please don't pre-judge) and decided that Tom probably was right. She was feeling just great so she decided to stop her meds and then she began a downward spiral.We were told last night, since she has now decided to self-medicate with alcohol, that she may have 2 weeks to live. Thank you, Tom, so much. You are a complete fool and I'd like you to come and do your magic on her and help our family thru our grief."'nuff said. That's exactly why we're here, so people can see the "real" ScienTOMogy... thank you for your post
"Fuck that motherfucker Tom Cruise and his whore bitch cum eater Katie Holmes. They can both eat cock. Scientology is a fucking cult for cock suckers like John Travolta and his little tart of a wife Kelly Preston. I bet they all get together to fornicate. They should rename it to ScientORGY. "love it ;)
"We do not delete or censor any posts unless they are abusive or attack an individual personally... ENJOY!"Thank you for your message, albeit hidiously misguided. You seem to be under the false impression that the video film and/or satorical material on my ScienTOMogy.info site was created in some magical way by myself; Perhaps I, using my secret OT VIII powers mind controlled TC into saying what he said, to leap on furniture, insult reporters, and, of course, relentlessly promote the Church of Scientology when I am being paid to promote a movie!
How witty of you....
Your attack on Tom Cruise is a little excessive, dont [sic] you think? It's one thing to try to discredit a religion/cult/group, but an all out character assination on Tom Cruise is a little obsessive. For goodness sake, it's not like he pooped in the middle of the Vatican. What's so wrong with becoming a little unwrapped once in a while? Welcome to the real world! I know it must be tough for you to get weened off of Hollywood prepackaging.
On the otherhand, I hope you prevail on maintaining your websites [sic] name. If you have reasons to believe that Scientology is dangerous, it should be your right to try to educate others. Using a similar url is not infringement, it's ingenious."
I have mind control abilities? Is this what you believe? If not then surely you realise the the footage of Tom is real (unless stated as a satire) and that in putting it here I have not "attacked" him at all!
If "attacking" someone - as you put it - is to place a series of statements he has made publicly in one place then yes I am indeed guilty of such an act. But, back to the real world again, what you have said is literally a hot steaming pile of warm "Xenu" (ScienTOMogy terminology for "BULLSHIT")
I have made NO personal attacks on Mr Cruise other to state that I believe his recent actions have been MORONIC. And they have been. Here are the facts, in the last few months;
* his StarPower ranking plummeted from 12th to 50th
* he went from the 11th most liked celebrity to the 197th
* his fan base (those who like or like him a lot) shrank from 33% to 25%
* he ranks among the top 5 most controversial actors (those who are heavily disliked and liked), along with David Spade, Tom Green, Pauly Shore and Ashton Kutcher.
The drop follows Cruise’s controversial publicity tour for the release of “War Of The Worlds” and his engagement to actress Katie Holmes. The above figures are from the Genius StarPower Summer 2005 report (covering the six months to July 1, 2005) and the Spring 2005 report (covering the six months to April 1, 2005). Source: http://www.geniusinsight.com/news_main.aspx
Not to mention have Steven Spielberg disown him, and public polls show more actually dislike Tom than like him (this is the first time this has happened) All in all "moronic" seems like a fair observation to me.
As for becoming "unwrapped" once and awhile, yes, everyone's human. But not everyone publicly promotes what is widely recognized to be a damaging CULT in the process do they?!
All I do is place the vids on the site, and let you make up your own mind... assuming it hasn't been thoroughly washed already by a guy who's mother lives in a shoe...
