I was going to leave this alone. Actually I was going to leave it to Hue (huezine.blogspot.com), but it just got me so angry. The whole 'I'm very not gay' vibe is bad enough, the over-exposed media blitz 'romance' with Katie 'cry for help' Holmes - I was going to leave it where it belongs, which is mainly not on my blog, but now he's gone and actually made me mad. I'm no big fan of Matt Lauer either, let's get that straight. In fact anybody who ever anchored the Today Show loses points with me. Let's call it AM TV in general. The Morning Schmaltz. Can't take it. Anyway, Matt Fucking Lauer grew nads all a sudden, and since he likes his job he couldn't go straight for the 'Tom, aren't you gay?' line, so, crafty man, he blindsides Tom with this apparent Brooke Sheilds slight, by Tom, over taking anti-depressants. Bad Scientologist! Burn her! Egads. Well Tom turns on his type not gay personality and fights back. With this:

"Cruise: I've never agreed with psychiatry, ever.  Before I was a Scientologist I never agreed with psychiatry. And when I started studying the history of psychiatry, I understood more and more why I didn't believe in psychology. And as far as the Brooke Shields thing, look, you got to understand, I really care about Brooke Shields. I think, here's a wonderful and talented woman.  And I want to see her do well.  And I know that psychiatry is a pseudo science.

Lauer: But Tom, if she said that this particular thing helped her feel better, whether it was the antidepressants or going to a counselor or psychiatrist, isn't that enough?

Cruise: Matt, you have to understand this.  Here we are today, where I talk out against drugs and psychiatric abuses of electric shocking people, okay, against their will, of drugging children with them not knowing the effects of these drugs.  Do you know what Aderol is?  Do you know Ritalin?  Do you know now that Ritalin is a street drug?  Do you understand that?

Lauer: The difference is —

Cruise: No, no, Matt.

Lauer: This wasn't against her will, though.

Cruise: Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt —

Lauer: But this wasn't against her will.

Cruise: Matt, I'm asking you a question.

Lauer: I understand there's abuse of all of these things.

Cruise: No, you see.  Here's the problem.  You don't know the history of psychiatry.  I do." - MSNBC

Tom 'Mr. I Gotta Fucking PHD In Psychiatry' Cruise. More like a history OF it. There's more:

"Lauer: Aren't there examples, and might not Brooke Shields be an example, of someone who benefited from one of those drugs?

Cruise: All it does is mask the problem, Matt.  And if you understand the history of it, it masks the problem.  That's what it does.  That's all it does.  You're not getting to the reason why.  There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance.

Lauer: So, postpartum depression to you is kind of a little psychological gobbledygook —

Cruise: No.  I did not say that.

Lauer: I'm just asking what you, what would you call it?

Cruise: No.  No.  Abso— Matt, now you're talking about two different things.

Lauer: But that's what she went on the antidepressant for.

Cruise: But what happens, the antidepressant, all it does is mask the problem.  There's ways, [with] vitamins and through exercise and various things...  I'm not saying that that isn't real.  That's not what I'm saying.  That's an alteration of what I'm saying.  I'm saying that drugs aren't the answer, these drugs are very dangerous. They're mind-altering, antipsychotic drugs.  And there are ways of doing it without that so that we don't end up in a brave new world. The thing that I'm saying about Brooke is that there's misinformation, okay.  And she doesn't understand the history of psychiatry.  She doesn't understand in the same way that you don't understand it, Matt."

So who does understand it Tom, other than you? Is this not irresponsible? For a man of such incredible public stature (sad or not), to claim on a national broadcast of a program watched by, like, a gazillion people every single fucking day, in front of ALL THOSE PEOPLE, to claim that anti-depressants are bogus. Where are your credentials Tom. Shouldn't doctors decide what's best for their patients? I know that antidepressants save lives. Let's get them straight first Tom, then you can take 'em for jog 'round to the health food store, in the meantime, we have lives to live.

It is evident from his remarks that Tom Cruise wants you to commit suicide. From that I can only gather that Scientology is about getting the rest of the world to do themselves in. I saw 'Be Cool' (John Travolta - known Scientologist), and without serious medication, and thankful I am for it, I could easily have offed myself for having viewed such crap. And I chose to watch it. See, it's working. I might have caught on sooner, but I avoid Tom's movies in earnest.

Tom, you'd sue me if I had, like, another reader, but I'm gonna say it. Tom Cruise is gay.

Matt, nice with the 'gobbledygook'.

Rumor has it that Tom was seen at Atlanta's Pride Weekend Picnic carrying a sign proclaiming his not gayness. He was offering to prove it and had a tent set up with Katie inside. No takers amongst the picnic folks.

The interview only confirmed his idiocy...
We all know that psychiatry is a "psuedo-science," while the belief that we are "made of clusters of spirits (or 'thetans') who were banished to earth some 75 million years ago by a cruel galactic ruler named Xenu" makes perfect sense.
Why didn't they call it Hubbardism, there's no real science involved.
I call it Science Fiction.
Chris nailed it,

"Scientology uses strictly scientific methodologies to undo the damage done 75 million years ago by the Galactic Confederation's evil warlord Xenu."

If you believe this scientology shit, then you don't need anti depressants, you need anti-psychotics.

I wonder if Vitamins, diet, and exercise is what Tom used to cure him of his "Gayness".

Finally, if you havn't seen Steve Martin's "Bowfinger" you should, they totally make fun of Scientolgy with an org called "Mind-Head". Also, the Onion's May 27th issue has a great article on a NEW religion called, "Imaginetics". What's sad, both of the these make more sense than Scientology.
Dog shit sandwiches make more sense than scientology....
....and what was the damage, I mean what were we like before old Xenu came along? I bet we had more hair. Hmmm, I wonder if the Hair Club for Men is in on this?
Honestly, though, it's just another way for people to make sense of their lives. I think we're all for religious tolerance, and you can believe in Xenu and I'll believe in... well, something else, and it's all cool. After all, Jackson and I have preached understanding here a couple of times.

The trouble is when people start telling others how to live their lives and hurting others in the process. To deny psychiatry outright, but base your life choices on lie detectors, auditing, and Xenu, would be great if you weren't telling millions of people they need to do the same. Add in the myriad of stories of people trying to get away from Scientology with horrible results, and you've got a problem.

Tom - keep your religious opinions where they belong, in your center with your auditor, and leave Brooke alone! Honestly, you sound like a moron.
it takes a second to load, but its worth the wait. this video is all you need to know about tom cruise

Hey man,

I'm so outraged by that Tom/Today Show controversy that I'm writing an article on it for school. I stumbled upon your blog whilst doing my research, and just had to say GOOD JOB!
