Tom Cruise

Betrayed by Scientology?

5/9/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise was secretly videotaped as he spilled his guts in Scientology confessional sessions, and those tapes became fodder for Scientology cocktail party humor ... this according to a high-profile and former high-level member of Scientology.

Mark Rathbun says in his blog, he recorded Cruise during the confessional sessions and Scientology guru David Miscavige read the transcripts at parties, "joking and laughing" at them.

Rathbun says the video was "well-concealed" in the VIP auditing room, per orders of Miscavige. Rathbun says Miscavige ordered him to prepare transcripts of the sessions. Then, according to Rathbun, Miscavige would hold late night whiskey parties, reading the transcripts and laughing out loud.

The nature of Tom's alleged confessions were not disclosed.

That very same topic was described in the unauthorized biography of Tom Cruise. It was do***ented many times that the "church" used sessions against it's own members, if they ever went against their wishes. The book was surprisingly good at exposing scientology. There was no wild conjecture, just well researched facts. Which was probably why there was only the threat of a $100 million dollar law-suit and no actual suit against the US publisher. (Australia, Britain and New Zealand were too scared by the threat of lawsuits to publish the book. Scientology is good at using the law to silence opposition. Must be a great religion.)

I'm surprised this guy is still alive if he is criticizing Scientology. Don't they try to cut your nads off if you cross them?

On Mother's Day, scientologists gather to honor the anus of the jackal that bore them. On Father's Day, they salute the common house fly.

Anderson Cooper: If this was true, why didn't Rathbun mention it to you first?
Martin Bashir: If this was true, why didn't Rathbun mention it to you first?
St. Pete Times: If this was true, why didn't Rathbun mention it to you first?
Maybe someone should ask him those questions. Since there is no good reason for Rathbun to have not revealed this earlier if it's true, maybe he's pulling it out of his ass now to embarrass Tom. The guy is an admitted liar after all.

The Jackson family make Scientology look positively benign.

Did you read what he wrote yet?



" I have recently learned from a very reliable witness that DM regularly held court with others in his personal lounge in the roadside Villas at the Int base, and while sipping scotch whiskey at the end of the night, Miscavige would read Tom’s overts and withholds from my reports to others, joking and laughing about the content of Tom’s confessions. "

You people who are laughing at this are sick. It doesn't matter who you are and what you have allegedly have done. HIS TRUST WAS BETRAYED. This is awful. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes and then criticize.
