Scientology Employees Forced To Watch Tom Cruise Videos

Yikes! That sounds like our personal hell!

Marc Headley left Scientology after being involved for 15 years and is publishing a tell-all book called Blown for Good about the bizarre religion and he talks about Tom Cruise's supreme influence on its members.

Those working at the Scientology compound in Gilman Hot Springs, California are not allowed to watch television or read newspapers, but apparently they were gathered at different times to view clips of Scientology poster-child Tom Cruise!

Headley explains the strange ritual:

"Everyone there thought Tom Cruise was just brilliant. Absolutely all the employees looked up to him. They think he is an exhilaration, which is very high up on what they call the 'tone scale'. People who work within the organization were not given access to newspapers or television shows. The only thing we knew was what we were told or shown.

"At the International Headquarters they would record any appearances on TV shows or even mentions of Tom Cruise, or little stories they heard about him. Then they would re edit them and cut them together into a five or ten minute video of all the snippets of him on TV. But it was never the full interview or story.

"For example the actual footage might have said; 'Scientologist Tom Cruise, the biggest movie star in the world, acts like a crazy person on Oprah.' But what we saw was 'Tom Cruise, the biggest movie star in the world.' Then it would cut to the next thing."

That sounds so shady!

After Headley left the compound it was then he saw what the world was really saying about Tom Cruise and Scientology in general and he began to question the religion and their "propaganda:"

"I just knew he was a superstar who talked about Scientology everywhere he went and encouraged people to join. I thought everyone was embracing Scientology and that millions of people were joining because of him. But somehow just before I got out I happened to see a few episodes of Conan O'Brien and he was making fun of Tom Cruise and the church.

I had only been shown the good. I had never been exposed to anything else. But it got me thinking that if jokes are being made and people are laughing at them then not everyone thinks Scientology is so great. They don't think Tom Cruise is awesome, they think he is a freak show."

Well can you blame us? With the Oprah couch incident, the highly-publicized battle with Brooke Shields and the famous sound bite of "you're glib!" to Matt Lauer?!

Headley also talks about what it entails to leave Scientology, using Tom Cruise's family as an example including ex-wife Nicole Kidman:

"If you want to leave Scientology and publicly announce it, then you run a high risk of being branded a suppressant person. You will not be able to speak to your mother or your children or you family members again if they are still part of Scientology. If you leave and you say, 'I don't want to do this and I don't want to be here then you are punished.' You are threatened with physical and physiological harm…

"Nicole did attempt Scientology but she walked away from it. But she has never spoken about that. There are a lot of people still today who are quote on quote, 'still in Scientology'. They may not like what is happening in Scientology but they will play along for fear they would suffer the disconnection.

"If Connor or Isabella [Tom and Nicole's kids] said, 'I don't want to do anything in Scientology anymore' and didn't speak out or say its crazy then they would be fine.

"But as soon as they say 'I don't want to do it anymore and I don't believe in it' and they make that fact known publicly then they stand a strong chance of being branded a suppressant person. If that were to happen, then they are living with Nicole."

That is effed up!

The more people speak out about their experiences in Scientology, the more creeped out we get!

Somebody save Suri!

    lol
    Tom Cruise is such a douche.



  2. 2

    Since when is reporting on cults gossip?



  3. 3

    So Scientology is basically mind control used to worship Tom Cruise… interesting…



  4. 4

    This is only a hint of the wacked out sleazy dangerous creepy behavior of the Predatory Evil $pace Alien Mind Control CULT.
    .
    Check out whyweprotest dot net and xenu dot net (among others) for the TRUTH about this unbelievable CULT.
    .
    They have their own 'church' Gestapo.
    .
    They spend MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year on lawyers and Private Investigators to intimidate people and ruin their lives.
    .
    DESTROYING PEOPLE is actually part of the 'CHURCH DOCTRINE' calle "Fair Game" that was written by the con man pathological liar and sociopath, Elron Hubbtard.
    .
    $cilonCONtology is worse than you think.
    .
    It's worse than you can imagine.



  5. 5

    Really? Go fuck yourself, Scientologist assholes.



  6. 6

    Scientology MY ASS



  7. 7

    Heaven's Gate 2.0



  8. 8

    15 years from now- Suri Cruise (undoubtedly gorgeous) on the cover of Vanity Fair, shot by the aging Annie Leibovitz, estranged from her father- headline:

    "Suri Cruise: My Life Growing Up in a Cult (and how my mother saved me)"

    Although I'm sure it will take years until wimpy Katie gets so fed up with her bat shit nuts husband and gets her daughter away from him. (although since Conner and Isabella seem to be mysteriously in Tom's care and not Nicole's…maybe she won't be saved for a long time)



  9. 9

    At best, half of what he says MIGHT be true. He's selling his book, most of all.
    That said, I think Scientology (like most indoctrinating religions) is CRAZY.



  10. 10

    lol



  11. 11

    Re: ohjessicadoes – Tom Cruise will bring you down. Bring you down to Chinatown for saying that.



  12. 12

    The Unification Church (Moonies) pales in comparison to the cult of Scientology. Are people who do leave “deprogrammed” in order to fit into “normal” life again? The entire "church" ought to be thoroughly investigated…and TommyGirl should be thrown in a straight jacket and put in a psych ward for observation.



  13. 13

    OMG!!! What is wrong with these people?? I'm going to pray for them… Poor Poor Katie, she sold her sole just to be famous..



  14. 14

    Way to go P and way to go Marc Headley!
    .
    Show the clams for what they are.
    .
    SP!



  15. 15

    That certainly explains why he has the kids all the time, and she doesn't. What an effed up organization.



  16. 16

    I luuuuuuuuurve cults, cults cults cults.



  17. 17

    I don't understand how the US Government hasn't stepped in yet? There are huge harassment allegations going on about a 'cult/religion'. I saw a documentary where one of the leaders and advisor to Tom Cruise was following this reporter round and trying to run them off the road with their cars. That’s scary shit, literally terrorising people. You can't bully someone into doing what you want. Even the Bible says God gave people the freedom of choice. This doesn't sound like a faith it sounds more like a dictatorship - and if you look at history that never ends well for anyone. Some of the principals of Scientology might be sound. Like believing in yourself etc a lot like life couching or mind over matter. But ruining peoples lives cos they have used their right to change there mind or to talk about there experience, is not self serving in the long run. People talk - its human nature. Sounds like they are running there own little Truman Show over there and Tom Cruise is their 'leader/God/poster boy' tool for brain washing. The government need to protect the people trying to get out and leave. Who the fuck are they to come between families?

  19. 19

    I didn’t know how much I had to say about this subject lol But I feel kinda bad for Cruise too. If they edit together the Cruise material for people to watch, they probably do it for him too. He probably gets told what their marketing dept wants him to believe about how the public view him. I doubt he logs on to sites like Perez. Has anyone ever seen the guy read a news paper? or watch the news? He might be living in the bubble himself, no negative influences etc. Surrounded by yes people to keep him safe. Ignorance is bless.



  20. 20

    wow … Tom Cruise … the leader of destruction of the human soul … who would have thunk that after Risky Business…lol



  21. 21

    Its a frickin cult man,just like the Jehovah Witness retards,religion sucks,crazy idiots



  22. 22

    Re: divas1 – Since day 1 baby.



  23. 23

    Tom Cruise is one of the nicest people in Hollywood, and that's all that really matters. The religion that he decides to partake in is his choice. Remember people…we live in America where people can practice whatever religion they chose.



  24. 24

    Scientology is killing Tom's career. I wonder how his next movie will do at the box office?



  25. 25

    all religion's are cults. none of them are any better or worse than the other.



  26. 26

    biggest tool eva! remember 'religon is free Scientology is neither'

    Re: Oswald2001

    Its L. Ron Hubbard. Until you typed this I was starting to think you had actually done your research. And yes, Scientology is fucked.



  28. 28

    Scientology - the perfect reason why atheist liberals shouldn't be allowed near anything resembling faith, no matter how contorted it is.

    Didn't people learn enough from that Jim Jones thing of the past.



  29. 29

    Wow, maybe that is why Katie stays with Tom. Maybe she is afraid she will not see her daughter. That's effed up big time!!



  30. 30

    Sounds a lot like Jehovahs Witnesses. When you leave the religion no one is allowed to speak to you, including family. I know since I was raised this way.



  31. 31

    wow.

  32. @v@ says – reply to this


    32

    Congratulations to Headley on the occasion of his A-Ha moment, or in other words, his deprogramming epiphany. His brain still functions, and that's good.



  33. 33

    I feel for Katie and Suri. Katie was young and Tom Cruise had been a huge movie star for so long - I'm sure it was intoxicating. But now she has a child who she has to protect and has probably been threatened that the child would be taken from her if she ever tried to leave him or the "church." What an awful situation to be in.



  34. 34

    i dont get why all of you fucks hate on this man for him choosing his own religion, america is basically founded on the principle of freedom and freedom of religion, its nobodies business and he still is a great actor, fuck yall hypocrites



  35. 35

    Cruise is a coo-coo-nut. The state controlled media won't dare criticize Scientology. Kudos to you Perez!



  36. 36

    If you read up on these psychos it 100% explains why Katie Holmes looks zombified!

    Re: shittin_condoms – 34 Shittin clams are ya?



  38. 38

    bunch of idiots.
    Scientology has absolutely nothing to do with the Jehovah's Witnesses. In no way, shape or form can these two be compared.
    Scientologists chose to follow whatever the heck rules or lifestyle who knows who makes up,while Jehovah's Witnesses follow VERY strictly exactly what the bible says. The SAME bible everyone else has. they just chose not to make up shortcuts like other religions. And about not being able to talk to anyone outside the religion is just about the biggest piece of bullshit I have ever heard. My parents are Jehovah's Witnesses and I grew up a Jehovah's Witness for 18 years (I don't practice it any longer because some personal issues i have within myself) and I still talk to everyone and see my parents every single day. If surrounding themselves with people outside the religion was even a small factor, why would they send their kids to public schools? There are absolutely no schools which are "Jehovah's Witnesses only" unlike many other religions. NOTHING to with with Scientology. And to make it clear, I am not preaching anything onto anyone. I simply hate it when people just yap whatever bullshit that comes out of their ass and try to state it as facts.



  39. 39

    Re: shittin_condoms
    Religion = they are eager to share their beliefs and tithing is voluntary. Cult = you pay huge money before they will tell you what you are actually buying into. Scientology is not a religion. Its the most dangerous pyramid scheme there is.



  40. 40

    Interesting, I attended a party in the hollwood hills with a lot of writers and directors and it was a well known fact among them that Tom Cruise would force actors and extras on his films to endure scientology counceling and testing. Non-compliant were dismissed.Two guys who thought it was bulls%&^ decided to go along,they made a pact,one went and tested with everything positive to say, I love life, life is great,I'm secure confident, bla bla bla, the other awnsered everything negative, I'm insecure, weak, scared of lofe, bla, , bla, bla and they wanted nothing to do with the happy secure one and preyed on the insecure one. They thought it was a riot but it just goes to show they want followers who are like sheep!!!



  41. 41

    Actually, the Jehovah's Witnesses do NOT use the same Bible as Christian faiths. They use a bible that has been edited to cater to their doctrines. A lot of editing. It is a cult.
    And yes, they do practice shunning. My sister in law was not allowed to contact her family after marrying outside the JW church. Not until she left him and got a divorce.
    Scientologists are, well - I don't have the words. How can you go along with all the nonsense that is put out there?

    I think it all boils down to this: How many Scientology centers do you find in poor areas?
    Exactly.



  42. 42

    Put a fork in Tom Cruise. Seriously.



  43. 43

    Re: mystatusisbaddest.com – LOL! TommyGirl is WAY past done; he's totally fried whatever brain matter he had years ago…



  44. 44

    Hubbard once said that the way to get rich was to invent a religion. Well he did that didn't he? I don't understand how any SANE person can believe that crazy ass shit! I've read up on it a lot, it fascinates me. How can someone fall into that? It must be very weak people that they prey on. Tom Cruise? Well I think he's just nuts. I totally went off of him. Don't care to see any new movies with him in the.



  45. 45

    Scientology is a business that convinces people to spend money and buy happiness.



  46. 46

    Scientology is the biggest joke to "EVER" come out of hollywood!!!!!



  47. 47

    If Marc Headly is authentic and can be believed, then this is not just wierd but terrifying. These are the same tactics used by Kim Jong Il to control the people of North Korea. Isolate and brain wash. Very creepy.



  48. 48

    omg, he officially scares me.



  49. 49

    I think we should liberate all the scientologists on the grounds that having to watch Tom Cruise movies is a form of torture.



  50. 50

    This guy is a week minded individual. He left because he saw how people were making fun of Scientology? haha How many of you will give up your beliefs because it is not popular? How many Gays will pretend that they are not gay because it is not excepted?…..
    Got the point? When you are young and insecure or old and insecure you will go along with the masses but once you have a real and strong faith system you are not easily swayed…….
    These guy is so scared that he wrote a book hahah and guess what, the book will have some juicy stuff for it to sell.
    That is manipulation people, just as these blog specializes in gossip and drama and it gets edited for that purpose…All these members that are leaving are so scared to speak that they run to the media to tell their story..haha



  51. 51

    Out of curiosity, one day I logged onto a Scientology site… I wanted to know what all the excitement. Next thing I knew, I was being barraged with offers to buy E Hubbards books 'in order to understand fully'. After reading for a bit I decided it was just too wierd, not even worth reading more about, so I tried to log out….. then I was led to page after page of offers to help me with my (so called) damaged past caused by my own negative behaviour



  52. 52

    ….continuation… When I finally got off the site, I started getting emails inviting me to visit them at my closest Church of Scientology for an interview of sorts (can't remember the term)…. I guess this is when they work their charm on you. I never did go… I was creeped out by then…. and now, 2 years later I'm still getting emails and offers to change my life by joining. Try it… sign up and see what happens. It's very creepy. They claim to be able to cure you of everything bad in your life… I can see why some would get sucked in.



  53. 53

    Re: carinacarina – You are being funny :-) That was a big leap you took in your conclusion. If a person is well balanced and happy with their life what is the point of trying to make him a Muslim or Christian or member of any other club? That person would not need any help because he is already doing right for himself or herself. The people that need help are those with a anxieties, fears . phobias etc…and guess what? Those people generally have a negative attitude and a negative view towards life….



  54. 54

    Sounds like scenes from Nineteen Eighty-Four to me…just sayin.

    Re: MaggyMay

    hey im not trying to be a jerk but isnt America a free country? no one is forcing you to do anything, if you don't like it then don't participate. pretty simple. i don't agree with many beliefs but i respect that people are allowed to have them here. why should we even go to battle? according to you freedom is supposed to be dictated, thats like punching one of our troops in the face

  59. 59

    There are other numerous religious or belief organizations where individuals who leave the group are distanced or excommunicated and no longer able to have contact with their families/friends, including the Amish who shun members who do not live according to the faith or choose to live in the secular world. That aspect is not unusual.



  60. 60

    Lock him up and deprogram him,very scary stuff.



  61. 61

    Seems like Scientology is a bunch of sadistic twerps that want to get inside others' heads, and treat our psyche like some alien science experiment. I just don't get it.



  62. 62

    Tom Cruise is more fucked up than Britney Spears was back in her hard drug black out days.



  63. 63

    Re: Oswald2001 – "Dynamixx = clam" haha if you are going to insult me at least be witty or funny other wise your math will be off….:-) Oswald says I am a clam, time for my Tom Cruise video therapy session haha :-) Mission Imposible 3 ah yea…

    The end of The scientology church is probably in sight. Celebreties leave the church all the time. They're closing down offices all over the world. Former members tells everything in books and to journalists. The Anonymous' work is starting to have effect.

    L. Ron Hubbard was, at best, a mediocre science fiction writer. He thought it would be neat to see if he could create a "religion" and get people to join - like some kind of social experiment. But at some point, he started to believe his own rhetoric and believed himself to be some kind of deity.
    I just don't get it.



  77. 77

    Here I thought Islam was the craziest cult!! I guess this runs a close second. Nutty!! No mention of God..just crazy mind control.FREAKY!

    ::Tom Cruise is one of the nicest people in Hollywood, and that's all that really matters. The religion that he decides to partake in is his choice.::

    First of all, Scientology isn't a religion. They don't believe in God and call themselves a Church just to be tax exempt. Even L Ron Hubbard (founder of Scientology said that if you wanted to make money, you should start a 'religion'. The Church of Scientology has a well documented criminal history of everything from fraud to murder. Secondly, Tom Cruise is promoting this dangerous ideology as a good idea, making dangerous statements and trying to involve people in something that can and will destroy their lives. Nice guy??? I think not. Besides, that's the fakest smile I've ever seen. That guy is certifiably insane, and a jerk at best.



  83. 83

    Re: Tweetheartkitty22 – They're not saying he can't choose to believe in whatever "religion" he wants to, they're saying his so called "religion" is a group of con-men who terrorize it's members and ex-members. Get out of your bubble and stop with the cumbaya.

    As a minister of a New Thought church in Los Angeles we used to get former Scientologists but they did not stay with us for very long because our teaching did not attempt to interfere with the lives and freedoms of our followers.

    People who are drawn to Scientology are co-dependent on its members.

    When I was in college I was stopped by a very pretty girl as I came out of a music store and she asked me to help with her psychology degree by taking a personality test. The trap was set and I fell right into it.
    In 10 mins I found myself at the Scientology center (I knew next to nothing about Scientology) taking a personality test that went on and on and was intended to manipulate my responses towards the negative.
    I got up to 2/3 of the way through the test before realizing what I had gotten myself into. As I went to walk out, two guys were on me like bees on honey. One to take my test and oh so quickly score it and the other insisting I should sit back down and talk, listen, and await my results.
    I was pretty strong willed and confident in myself at the time and when I strongly insisted I be able to leave they let me leave. I wonder what would have happened to me if this had occurred at various later points in my life when I had more troubles and challenges facing me.

    Re: soangryicouldspit
    Not so much. There is a difference between rephrasing to get the exact same message across - and deleting chunks of scripture to fit your doctrine. This is only one of many things that make JW's a cult. I don't have the time to enumerate them all but feel free to check it out. JW, Mormon, Scientology - all cults.
