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.

Anyone,. particularly celebrities, who has EVER entrusted the crime syndicate of $cientology with secrets they don't want revealed should be very afraid. Nothing is confidential to $cientology. You piss them off and it's all coming out, it's like the Mafia, only much worse.
Anyone who has been abused by MR. ($cientologists always have to preface the dwarf's name with a creepy "MR") David Miscavige knows he is a complete psychopath.
Use his "best friends" confessions for laughs? You bet he will.
Miscavige must be shaking in his size 3 boots at this bit of glorious news.

And the collapse of the cult continues, much to our amusement.

22. 15. Scientology is no more a "religion" then is Pop-tarts!

Cheryl - I find your comparison to be offensive and blasphemous:

- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts are real.
- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts were not invented by a failed science fiction writer who molested little boys.
- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts serve a useful purpose and emit a pleasant aroma.
- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts do not demand huge portions of your income or participate in life-long financial extortion.
- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts do not have secret goon squads that track down their detractors in order to torture and kill them.
- Unlike Scientology, Pop Tarts are understanding and supportive if one chooses to push their cart past the display and select another form of toaster pastry.

Finally, consider this - while they may be marginally nutritious and contain borderline-unacceptable amounts of sugar, particularly in the Frosted variety, everybody likes Pop Tarts. Those who do not are welcome to move to France and try toasting croissants.

Consider yourself rebuked.

38. 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.

how could all these rich people be taken in by this hubbard guy and his so called beliefs? why is it a secret? now,they find out that their "master" is laughing at them behind their backs. He led these people like lambs to believe his so called word. i'll bet hubbard and his crew is laughing all the way to his bank,with all of the stars who believe in him,filling his pockets. they let him control their lives,just like jim jones .

well, well....So Tom is on the screwing end of "Dear Leader", better known as David Miscavige. The dwarf who packs a mighty punch and loves to torture people mentally and physically. Apparently Tom does the same and loves the EGO trip he receives from the sci-fi love bombing he receives.
Best to get out now Tom and save face. You have been telling the world this moron is your best friend and he DID come on your honeymoon with you. Go
And No one is lying....don't even go there. Been there, done that. You've been duped, they made you divorce Nicole due to her "non belief" and held auditions to find your current wife. How embarrassing! Come into present time dude, everyone is laughing at you!

This doesn't surprise me because when I applied for a position at the celebrity center in New York the whole process was super creepy. They even had us sit in a room and watch a video where they said we would go to hell if we did not become a scientologists.

They tried to make me sign a 5 yr contract making little money. They told me that if I took the job I would have access to the celebs files.

I think this is matter who you are. When you have a religion and trust it and bare your soul. Never should it be used to black male you.

Tom Jones    

The confessions of Mr. Cruise will likely include man-to-man action of some sort. In my opinion.
