A few days ago someone released a clip of Tom Cruise talking about Scientology on YouTube - soon after it was pulled - presumably by Scientology - for reasons which become obvious when you see it. Copies have been saved here and here.
Not only is it seriously weird, it's also seriously nasty; the "SPs" Cruise speaks about crushing and "making history" are "Suppressive Persons" - which is Hubbard-speak for you & me. And everyone we love.
This picture of Hubbard is from the on-line edition of Russel Miller's definitive biography of the fraud: Bare-Faced Messiah It's now out of print, but thanks to Chris Owen the work has been kept accessible here.
On the bright side, isn't it sort of cheering to be reminded that there's nastier religions out there than Matthianism/Sydney Evangelicalism?
