Cruise Kills Oprah

Tom Cruise gets even crazier. Check out him Killing Oprah with his Scientology powers.

Update: Time has a Scientology collection, excerpts from articles on the cult going back to the 1950s. Here are a few of my favorites:
. . . Hubbard was once a successful science-fiction writer. In 1949, he seemed to predict his own future in a jocular speech to a convention of fellow authors: "Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion." (1976)

. . . Scientology is a religion that sees life as a relentless struggle to erase painful mental images (called 'engrams' in the cult's jargon) that block a person from achieving his full potential and that may accumulate through his successive incarnations. Hubbard has insisted that he lived through a series of incarnations and that he was in fact 74 trillion years old. (1983)


  • Okay, okay, that was funny. It actually pissed me off that he was telling Brooke Shields that she didn't need anti-depressants for her post-partum depression. OKAY Dr. Tom. WHATever.

  • Man, I didn't know that Tom Cruise had joined the dark side. It does make sense though; did you see him in Collateral?

  • Oooooh, he was scarily evil (fun to watch) in Collateral. I didn't know he had it in him.
