Tom Cruise may still be the biggest movie star in the world, but his off-screen antics have so tainted his brand such that has last two films have pretty much been flops compared to his string of multi-$100M blockbusters in the 1980's and 1990's. Watching these videos, its apparent that Mr. Cruise has been quite swept up in Scientology and its teachings. He and his hired wife, B-list actress Katie Holmes, are hard-core followers. Watching his videos, I don't think I could sit through another of his films.
I didn't pay much attention to these guys until reading this article and watching a few of these videos. Check them out. What a freakshow.
For years Scientologists have waged expensive wars of litigation, using high-priced lawyers to silence and intimidate critics. So, I should like to comment that I have the utmost respect for Scientology and its followers. As a poor, unemployed Internet blogger, I have nothing to offer but my admiration for the 1st Amendment.
