Tom Cruise, $cientology and a truly hilarious video

Eish, I know it's not weekend, so I should not post something merely for its entertainment value, but everyone with even the slightest awareness of $cientology will know that these folk are a fairly litigious bunch. I thought, however, I should furnish you with a link to a video on youtube where your truly, Ueber$cientologist Tom Cruise, introduces $cientology.

The Economist reports this week (I'm quoting so $cientology can't sue me :-), that the group (the 'Church' inc.) offers, among other things, 'expensive courses of treatment [that] can help rid people of infestations by alien souls from an extinct civilisation'. Honestly, they're for real. The 'Church' was invented by former scifi writer L Ron Hubbard, so you will probably understand how the alien souls popped into the story line.

Anyway, watch Cruise on his crusade for the Church of $cientology. You think he might just have lost his marbles . In case you have doubts about the marbles question, have a look at another performance at the 'Church'.

  1. Aaaargh! But never fear: this seems to have pushed the buttons of a group of individuals who go by the moniker "Anonymous". This group is now out to get the religion and destroy it! Watch these videos here http://tinylink.co.za/a991ed and here http://tinylink.co.za/a78801. And no, the voice narrating isn't Stephen Hawking ...
