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.

Carol, I could not walk a mile in Tom's shoes for two reasons-- 1)I have no experience walking with lifts in my shoes, and 2)more importantly, he wears a woman's size 9 while I wear a men's size 13.
I could walk in Paris Hilton's shoes but not Tom Cruise's.

So. the creep with the nice smile and little mans disease got taken? Wow, wonder when he's ever going to rejoin the human race? Never believe an actor who has to act to be "normal" in a film. Every role he's played he pushes the normal, confident, good looking, got it all, but also have drive and a temper, kind of role and character on us. Why hasnt he played a gay man, or a broken man, or an anti American man, or a coward? Why? Because he's all those things tears of a clown..or Johnny Carson away from the show---actually an introverted, shy creepy crawly kind of person. Like Letterman---painfully shy and awkward, total introvert little confidence, knows he a nerd, but when the lights go on something comes alive---and they all can be somebody else. Like Cruise---he doesnt have to be the gay insecure introverted non confident psycho he truly is. go hide out some more Tom---it will be great when the content of those recordings finally makes it to the public, that "religion" and you will finally be exposed as the Frauds you both are.

Well, humans are flawed in every religion, and the guy who betrayed "church" trust was just wrong. With that said, Scientology is wack, and I cannot believe anyone would want to belong to that mess.

Summary - L Ron Hubbard and P.T. Barnum are the same.

Scientology makes you confess your "crimes" takes down records of everything, and then, if you leave their cult, uses something called fair game to keep you in check. Fair game is the policy that it's okay to lie, cheat, steal, etc.. against anyone who speaks out against the cult. They are very sick people. Tom couldn't afford for the Scions to go public with his "crimes."

kickaboo Former senior-level Church of Scientology staff, including marketing executive Jeff Hawkins and Stacy Young, have alleged that Miscavige physically and emotionally abuses his subordinates, including high-ranking Church executives.

Tom Cruise would gain or regain a lot more fans if he would tell Scientology to stick it especially Miscavige. Come clean and call out the church..Tom. You too, Travolta. The public probably already knows or has guessed your secrets anyway. To hell with these emotional abusive, extorting blackmailers.

In response to post #15 - I disagree with you. While I do agree that this was an inexcusable violation, I DON'T agree that "nobody" deserves this. Mr. Cruise has often used Scientology as a weapon against people and has been very comfortable sitting in judgment of others from the viewpoint of his scientology-based belief system. I'd say that this is nothing less than divine retribution and he COMPELTELY deserves it.

And if Mr.Cruise destroys Scientology over this, well that would just be the cherry on top of the sundae as far as I'm concerned.

Today Amy Scobee released her book 'Abuse at the Top' about the tragedy going on inside Scientology. She used to be in charge of Celebrity Center in Hollywood and she tells a bunch of very eyeopening and scary stories.

Big Deal. We all knew that it was all garbage from the start. Now maybe Tom will catch on.

C.O.B. holding "late night whiskey parties" - ha ha ha. I really laughed out loud. It's totally inconceivable.
Mark Rathburn is such a liar!
But it is conceivable that idiots and ignorants would believe him.
Tom Cruise and David Miscavige are best friends and this "story" by Rathbun is typical 3rd Party bu11****.
