I tend to have different opinions on Scientology based on what celebrity you’re talking about.
When you tell me Tom Cruise is a Scientologist:
- "What a cult-joining lunatic. He read a science fiction novel written by a conman and decided to start worshiping it? Did he also watch Jurassic Park and start praying to Jeff Goldblum? Why follow L Ron Hubbard? He’s just a guy, he doesn’t know any more than you. Just glimpsing his Wikipedia page shows that he was extremely racist against the Chinese. Does Tom Cruise hate Chinese people? He certainly follows the teachings of a racist-against-Chinese-person. And he thinks that humans came from aliens that flew here on a space ship, well if anyone seems like an alien it’s him and John Travolta. They probably flew here on their Prius piloted by their Chinese man-servants.”
When you tell me Elisabeth Moss is a Scientologist:
- "Who am I to judge? It’s none of my business. It seems kind of reasonable, aliens are probably real. I mean who’s to say we’re not the aliens? At least she chose a religion that you know isn’t real, all the others can go either way. And so what if it’s a cult? Society is just one big cult. I really liked that movie The Master, that was about Scientology, right? And I heard L Ron Hubbard lived on a boat, that’s pretty cool.”
I think the top Scientologists know that everyone has a different view on Scientology based on the celebrity. That’s why there was that rumor that the Scientologists were casting Moss as Cruise’s fourth wife, it makes it seem more normal. They started with the crazy celebrities, now they’re getting the normal celebrities, pretty soon they’ve got your next door neighbor and they’re coming for you!
