Katie Holmes finds Tom Cruise Mission Impossible
By Bob Tourtellotte
LOS ANGELES | Fri Jun 29, 2012 4:01pm EDT

(Reuters) - Actress Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from her superstar husband Tom Cruise, ending a six-year marriage that produced one daughter and captivated celebrity watchers worldwide.

Holmes filed papers in New York City on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking sole custody of the couple's six-year-old daughter Suri in a move that came "out of the blue" for the "Mission: Impossible" actor, said one source with knowledge of the situation.

The source said Cruise is out of the country filming a movie in Iceland and the filing came as a surprise.

Tom Cruise at 50: Single scientologist with three failed marriages


Tom Cruise is 50: It's Time To Grow Up

Video: Rona Barrett interviews Tom Cruise

You're going to hear a lot about the troubles that Tom Cruise finds himself in as he turns 50 years old today.

We thought we'd take a different tack. We've often thought that Rona Barrett's 1984 interview of a pre-Scientology Tom Cruise is one of the most revealing. We see a young man with half a dozen movies under his belt who is becoming a big star at the same time that he's vulnerable, even damaged, after growing up through the divorce of his parents. He was a religious seeker who briefly dealt with his psychic scars by running to a seminary. Bright, curious, but suffering, Cruise was almost the perfect example of a young person open to a new religious movement. Is it any wonder that he went willingly to a group that offered certainty, belonging, and structure?

Scientology's Own Promotional Material Attests to 15-Year-Olds in the Sea Org
By Tony Ortega

....However, the best part about this flub by the tabs is that it elicited a response from the church itself. Scientology huffed and puffed, saying that Suri isn't eligible for the Sea Org because the church doesn't take anyone for the hardcore, elite unit under the age of 16.

Wow, is that a big fat lie.

How do we know that? Well, just take a look at this promotional flier that the church itself mails out...

Katie is right to be scared of Suri being raised in Scientology cult
Says sect victim Sharone Stainforth

SHARONE STAINFORTH’S bizarre childhood steeped in Scientology is summed up by a snap of her saluting as she sings.

The image was taken just five years before she attempted suicide aged 15.

Sharone was indoctrinated aged six when her father Michael left his shoe shop business in Yorkshire to work at the cult’s UK HQ, Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

Tom, Katie, Suri and the Media Reaction
4 July 2012, 8:00 pm
By Just Bill

When I first started this blog, my primary intention was to clear up the misinformation about Scientology, the Church of Scientology and ex-Scientologists.  Sometimes I think I've done a good job.  Then there are times, like recently, when I'm amazed at how much misinformation still persists.

Katie recently had her dad fire all her Scientology "handlers" and help her file for divorce from Tom Cruise in New York.

The media has gone absolutely crazy with the news and got some very important things totally wrong.  Don't they do research any more?

What the media got right:

The media has rather consistently framed Katie's actions as an "escape from Scientology".  Correct, it is.

The media has viewed Scientology as weird and dangerous.  Again, correct.

The media appears to consider Suri turning six as the primary trigger for the divorce at this time and Katie asking for sole custody of Suri.  I also believe this is correct.

There are other, less important things, that the media got mostly right.

What the media got wrong:

No, Suri was not in any danger of being "sent to the Sea Org".  That outcome is not and was not in the cards.  While I have never seen or heard of a six year old in the Sea Org,  that isn't the point.  Celebrities do not get sent to the Sea Org and Suri, because of her parents, is a celebrity.

Many years ago, Yvonne Jentzsch, who ran Scientology's "Celebrity Centre" used to make some celebrities "honorary Sea Org members".  These people never did any Sea Org things, they just continued whatever they were famous for, but that idea died with Yvonne.

Today, celebrities, and their children, are coddled and, if they are top tier like Tom or Katie, they are assigned "handlers" to spy on them and keep them isolated.

No, Suri going to the Sea Org wasn't what Katie feared.

Suri was not in danger of being "sent to the RPF".  That's just stupid.

Suri was not going to be "interrogated" (Sec Checked), at least not right away.

None of the media understood the very real danger Suri was in.

Suri's actual danger:

L. Ron Hubbard said that you don't "audit" a child before they turn six.  Auditing, in this case, means all the Scientology activities that use the "e-meter".

So, that meant no "counselling sessions", no "word clearing" and no "Sec Checks".  And that meant that Suri wasn't getting all the standard Scientology indoctrination.

And that was just about to end.  Suri was six.  Time to get her "in session" and "on course".

You know that Tom was heavily pressuring Katie to get Suri active in Scientology.

The divorce is Katie's unequivocal answer.

Good for you Katie, you did exactly the right thing: get Suri somewhere safe where the cult can't indoctrinate her.

^^^Very concise summary. Maybe the media will slow down just a bit and get the actual facts, which is a lot more damning of $cientology than all the speculation, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for it Just have to keep 'pooning them the reality and hope some of it sticks.
