Church of Scientology

Suri Is NOT a Candidate for Sea Org.

7/2/2012 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0702_scientology_logo_article
The Church of Scientology is adamant ... nobody under the age of 16, including Suri Cruise, is allowed to join its elite Sea Organization.

The Church's lawyer has released a statement ... saying in addition to the minimum age requirement (16 years old), minors must have "consent of both parents and/or all legal guardians" in order to join.

The lawyer adds, "There are no exceptions to that policy."

As TMZ first reported, Katie Holmes is concerned Tom Cruise will put 6-year-old Suri in the Sea Org. in the very near future ... and she clearly does NOT want that to happen.

Nonetheless ... the Church is adamant ... no one under 16 can become part of Sea Org.

The total agreement and conformity of thought and words on message boards is the furthest thing from free thought and critical thinking there is. And if anyone disagrees with the group think of the message board they are mobbed by you goons who have all decided who the evil doers are and who the wee poor victims are. Oh no, your single minded message baord agreement party not CULTY at all.

If they can lie about this (contradicting their own website) what else are they lying about? I hope that Congress can begin congressional investigation into their 501(c)3 status. They have no business being considered for religious status. This is a cult and needs to be seen for what it is!

Celebs are so dumb, they use lie detectors to get info on them and then they are stuck in the "religion" because they hold all their secrets over them. Like you could ever trust these people...smh

The part about having to be 16 is garbage. Go read any website run by the cult's former members.

If there is anyone they'd bend the rules for it is Tom Cruise.

COS is a cult. It's dangerous and has been accused of murder. They have a very active legal goon squad. That is why the comments were removed and why TMZ had to change the copy on this story.
