The internet, particularly in the age of Wikileaks
, has worked an enormous amount of damage upon the “Church” of Scientology, and many of us wonder why certain celebrities (i.e., Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and their wives) choose to stay. Naturally, part of the problem is that the cult has gathered far too many “damaging” secrets through its extensive auditing process of the celebrities in question, and they worry that their careers would be sabotages if this information should (and it would) be leaked by the CO$. Also, I figure that these celebs must have preemptively decided to turn a blind eye to any and all injustices that have been revealed by former members (if you’re not familiar, Ex-Scientology Kids
is a great place to start). They just figure that things are great for them, so why rock the proverbial boat? Katie Holmes, especially, is not about to rock that boat. Not only would doing so endanger her astronomical clothing budget, but she’s at least smart enough to see what happened to Nicole after she and Tom divorced. After a number of years of marriage, Nicole resisted Scientology and, as a suppressive person, the church would never allow Nicole to be near her adoptive children again. When was the last time that you saw Nicole photographed with either Connor or Isabella? Exactly.
This week’s issue of In Touch magazine reveals that Katie’s life is one of constant surveillance and control from spies in the CO$. Most of the information comes from a new book, Inside Scientology: The Story of America’s Most Secretive Religion
, by Janet Reitman. While the stuff about unpaid labor and Katie’s “wife audition” is nothing new, there’s an interesting claim that Katie and Tom are largely ignorant of the scheme that’s been put in place to keep them line. Would you welcome the CO$ into your lives and even into your bedroom? It seems that the Cruises have done just that:....much more in article link....
