I have to watch my language, because apparently my mom now reads my blog, however; I’ve got to say this. Tom Cruise is completely fucking insane. The latest Tom Cruise related news has the leaders of Scientology saying that Tom Cruise is their messiah. Yeah, that’s not a typo. Apparently, he is The Chosen One,
who will bring balance to the Force spread Scientology to the world.
I apologize for diverting from my usual subject matter, but this whole thing demands comment. First off, it’s pretty funny when you think about it. But then you think about it some more, and you start to get scared. Why scared? Because although you and I know that Scientology is bogus and that Tom Cruise is insane, there are a lot of people out there that don’t. Worse yet, there are a lot of people out there that because it’s associated with someone like Tom Cruise (or John Travolta) they will apply less critical thought to the concept of a religion that forces you to pay them if you want to achieve their version of salvation.
Say what you will about organized Christianity, but the last time I can think of the Christian church selling salvation, a guy named Martin Luther got pretty pissed off about the whole concept.
So…Tom Cruise is the messiah. I guess in closing, all I can wonder is if it’s still legal to crucify people.
