But are you really surprised?
It’s clearer than the Hollywood sign a day after rain — Tom Cruise‘s divorce has resulted in Scientology saturated news.
We even dug around to find some info on the 33 mystery ourselves! But even before the divorce, people were questioning the religion (see 2008 protest photo above).
If you’re going to enter a religion that does things like build supposed super-power training centers, then don’t be surprised when it gets a lil’ media coverage! People are fascinated by the system that regards Cruise as a telepathic god-like being! It’s human nature.
Still, some Scientologists are up in arms over the recent discoveries and discussions regarding Xenu.
One member, Daniele Lattanzi, sent an email to fellow members, urging them to report news stories or comments they deem abusive.
As Lattanzi puts it:
“Well, I am not somebody that I am going to simply stand and watch a bunch of uninformed people putting my religion under the carpet. So here is a simple hatting on how you can causative fight back and at the same time stand up and defend our religion on the internet.”
But while Lattanzi feels passionately against the public forums, a rep for the Church insists Lattanzi’s views are not their own:
“An email from a Scientologist is no more from the Church of Scientology than an email from a Catholic is from the Vatican. This did not come from the Church or anyone associated with the Church, nor is it a Church plan.”
And hey! If there are people spreading hate on message boards, that’s one thing.
Delete! Delete! Delete! Report! Report! Report!
But fuming over investigation and civil discussion is something else completely. Like we said before, we all like to kiki! So when reports come out about Katie Holmes not wanting Suri in the Church, people will begin to wonder! And they’ll want to communicate their curiosities!
Maybe someone just needs an extra session of Dianetics!
