Just when we thought he may have come to his senses…
Tom Cruise isn't OVER Scientology!
The actor, who has been rumored to be having serious grievances with the controversial teachings of L. Ron Hubbard after his third marriage to Katie Holmes collapsed, appeared as a guest of honor at the 28th Anniversary Patrons Ball for the International Association of Scientologists on October 20th…and even wore his Freedom Medal of Valor that the church awarded him!
Sources at the dinner, which hosted 2,500 guests at $3,000 a plate, reveal:
"Tom was with a girl with cropped black hair who was wearing a red velvet dress. He was seated at a table of 12 in a special VIP area. Many guests approached him to shake his hand at the end of the meal. He looked at home and stood up to sing along to the Scientology anthem at the end before leaving a little earlier than everyone else. Tom seemed delighted that there were so many well-wishers. It was his first major public appearance at a church event since his divorce and it seemed pretty clear that he hasn’t left the religion."
Yeesh! We guess not!
Like we said earlier, we didn't exactly expect
Xenu the church to just send him off on his merry way with nothing but well-wishes!
You know, with his psychic powers and all!
We do hope, however, that even if he is not quite ready to accept the damage that his beliefs have caused his personal life, we will come around to it eventually!
