Tom Cruise, No. 3 in Church of Scientology, is on a mission to protect people from aliens living in their bodies: book "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & The Prison of Belief" - NYPOST.com Should I be embarrassed to say that that is an interesting read? I'm not likely to get the book, but it is amazing to me how this Church of Scientology has managed such abuses, and that Tom Cruise has such an ego that he was to taken in by it. This perhaps surprises no one else, however. In any event, I was struck by this: Cruise was elated yet distracted by more earthly concerns. He was openly complaining about his lack of a girlfriend, and so once again Miscavige tasked church members with solving this problem. Cruise himself held auditions at the Celebrity Centre, under the guise of casting for his next â€œMission: Impossibleâ€ film. On his list: Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Garner, whom he found the most compelling. is scientology just a tax evasion scheme? or is this guy really that fucking dumb?
