Tom Cruise hailed as ‘Christ’ of Scientology
10:00AM Thursday January 25, 2007

Someone
Tom Cruise has been hailed as the “Christ” of Scientology.

The actor, who is a devout follower of the religion, has been hailed by leaders of the faith as the “chosen one” who will spread the word.

High-ranking Scientologist David Miscavige is convinced Cruise, 44, will one day be worshipped like Jesus all over the world, becoming a prophet for the religion.

A source close to the actor is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: “Tom has been told he is Scientology's Christ-like figure. Just like Christ, he has been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right, just like Jesus.”

Cruise, a top ranking Scientologist, joined the Church of Scientology in the mid-80s. His wife Katie Holmes has reportedly converted to the faith.

The religion's founder, American science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard, claimed that extra terrestrial beings were sent to planet Earth by intergalactic ruler Xenu, who then blew up the aliens with hydrogen bombs in a volcano.

Blark, more celeb news… Heh, maybe that is how Jesus started out? Not as a prophet with big ideas (or a born divine incarnation), but as simply a charismatic front-man for a new sect?

Brainwashing and blackmail. Nothing more, nothing less.

Even at the very first meeting people have with Scientology (the so called personality test), they tell the people that not joining would be very much like comitting suicide or some other thing such as that.

The sickening thing is it's even more insane when you actually read more of what they believe. The details are so fucking out there that it makes even the most improbable stories in Christianity, Islam, and whatever the fuck else you can think of look like totally normal everyday occurances!

For example, they believe that anyone who finds out about the aliens who were trapped on earth before they reach OT3 (Yes, they level up depending on how much money they give) will go crazy and die.

And guess what else? All those other religions were just illusions shown to the aliens' ghosts after they got blown up. HOW where they shown these? In big movie theaters with 3d fucking projectors!

not to defend that “religion”,
but unbelievable things happen in most holy stories

-a man walks on water
-a loaf of bread is divided to feed many
-a man comes back to life
-a man flew on a flying horse to heaven

i guess if they just replace the word “aliens” and made it into something like “light bearers” or “travelers”…they might sway people more to their cult

What's more unbelievable? Alien overlords using psychiatry, Douglas DC-8s (I shit you not, that's what they claim was used), and 3d movie projectors to brainwash alien ghosts, or a dude coming back to life?

The reason Christianity is less bogus is the fact that there is a God in it that can do that stuff. Scientology isn't a religion to me because they don't worship anything, it's more of a belief which makes us realize it's a scheme.

i will also like to know you the more

Now, the thing about Scientology versus most religions is that most religions feature prominently a “God” of some sort. The God can have many features, but chief among them is that he exists, more or less, in a manner separate from our own. Essentially the ultimate “A Wizard Did It”, God “works” simply because his machinations are beyond our scope of vision. If you try to explain God scientifically, the bottom comes out of the barrel, the cats get out of the bag, etc.

Scientology is fundamentally flawed, which is obvious by the haphazard almagamation of “science” and “theology” in the name itself. By simply giving too much explanation, the stories are too easy to scrutinize and can be easily disproven.

It doesn't help their credibility that you have to PAY to get their ‘salvation’ (*coughbrainwashingcough*)

(totally hates scientology…)

the catholic church used to do that with wealthy people.
in some instances that practice is still around today with “charaties.”

I hate a lot about a lot of religions, but Scientology is the only religion that I find no reedeeming factor in. The day that it becomes as widespread as Christianity is the day I lose all my faith in the human race.

Tom Cruise? Jesus? Are these people insane? Oh wait, stupid question…

Didn't scientology start out as a fictional religion in a scifi book?

Exactly. Just how Christianity started out as an idea people had that there was some guy in the sky who listened to their every word and gave them spiritual gifts including life after death.

If I am correct, it began as a bet between Hubbard and some dude about making a religion to get money.

The bet thing isn't for certain, but it is well documented that Hubbard would often tell his friends (usually fellow science fiction writers) that he felt the best way to make money would be to start a religion.
