"That's great Tom, now fuck off while I watch some good sci fi"
Now I have always hated Tom Cruise for many reasons; the shiteating grin, the vast sense of self importance that seems to radiate from him like a fart smell and the utterly creepy way he has turned Katie Holmes from a slappedarseface teenager in a overrated tv show into an automated Wifebot who looks anywhere between 25 and 60.
But the Scientology? That just took it to a whole new level of contempt. I am not a fan of religion any day, but it doesn't bother me if other people want to faff around kneeling down, chanting and building nice buildings because they think it will make death any less final. That's their problem. I do however care when people try to force their religions on others, and threaten anyone who dares question them. Particularly when their religion is utter bullshit made up by a mad sci fi writer and is not so much 'questionable' as straight out and out 'What. The. Fuck?'
Aaanyway, watching the recent videos of Tom Cruise blabbering on about Scientology with his fart smell of self importance so noxious it's a miracle it didn't knock out the entire production crew, I almost felt sorry for him.
It reminded me of when you babysit a child and instead of playing with their stupid little brother they want to hang out with you and talk about grown up stuff, like how to solve the war in Iraq, when all you want them to do is fuck off so you can watch Heroes.
The furrowed brow and staring eyes, the passionate speech of big words what they heard the man in the suit on the telly say earlier on today. The fact that none of it makes any sense whatsoever and is just a series of repetitive cliches said in different orders, much like :
"It is the time now. Now is the time... Being a Scientologist, people are turning to you, so you better know it, you better know it and if you don’t, go and learn it, but don’t pretend you know it. It’s like we’re here to help."
I would post the video, but the cultish nutbags are pulling them down, left right and centre, and I do so hate it when there is a video or photo on this blog that is no longer available.
The people at this website HERE appear to have a massive axe to grind about Scientology. I can't be bothered to read it all and it seems a bit militant, but they did hilariously point out how much the Scientology salute is reminiscent of Red Dwarf's Arnold Rimmer. So I like.
