Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes

Divorce NOT

Over Scientology

Katie Holmes
may say her decision to divorce Tom Cruise is over Scientology, but it's NOT ... so say sources directly connected to Tom.

Our sources tell us ... they believe Katie and her team are leaking false stories to the media by maintaining she was trying to save Suri from the grips of Scientology, and that's why she left Tom.

As one well-connected Tom source put it, "She [Katie] was totally committed to Scientology. She had enthusiasm for it and would voluntarily and gladly participate in it when Tom was off shooting movies."

The source adds, "This is not a fight over religion. It's being used as a way to hurt Tom."

And on the subject of hurting Tom, as we first reported, sources connected with the actor tell us Katie's people have made it difficult for him to speak with Suri by phone, but he's talked to her every day. He has no immediate plans to see his daughter because he's leaving today or tomorrow to shoot his new movie in the Rockies.

Tom's lawyers have not filed any docs in court -- yet -- to establish his custodial rights. If that happens, we're told they will file in New York, although it's pretty clear they will ask to have the case sent to California.

And, as for what Tom's people say the divorce is really about ... they won't say yet, but tell us it's coming.

Wow, shades of when TC filed for Divorce. Sources close to Tom claim "She knows the reason why?" Sources close to TC also claimed she miscarried a baby that wasn't his.
.
What's next, Scientards, are you going to trot out some TOM CRUISE look-a-like and have him tell the world he's been having an affair with Katie? I wouldn't put it past you sick/twisted bastages. Why not just leave it in the courts now, your spin for damage control actually gives me something to giggle about while having my coffee.

Sources connected to Tom won't even admit that he is short, much less that his wife is leaving him because she is tired of being in a cult!

Look at Tom's history, all his divorces have been because of Scientology, so yeah there is a pattern here that Cruise cannot deny. The various do***entaries and independent research I have done on Scientology it is more destructive than any other. As a matter of fact I may expose Scientology on the next episode of Exposing Cults Gone Wild. There is a trend I see, that is similar to people on my side of the religious debate (I am a Nazarene Jew and believer in Yeshua as Messiah) who jump into Kabbalah before they are ready for the Jewish Mysticism and they in turn have many many many health issues. Now those whom have left Scientology after being deep in it, many have gone certifiably insane. So yeah Scientology is a dangerous cult, and I think Tom's behavior is foreshadowed in the film Eyes Wide Shut

KH was NEVER " totally committed to Scientology" and stopped attending CoS classes over a year ago, and always had issues reconciling with her Catholic faith. This is PURE BS from the "church". Shocking, I know...

Yeah - right. Why is she trying to protect Suri so much. If it was just normal man/wife bs, then she wouldn't necessarily be looking for sole custody.

The Church of Scientology is one of the most controversial new religious movements to have arisen in the 20th century. It has often been described as a cult that financially defrauds and abuses its members, charging exorbitant fees for its spiritual services

Regardless of everything Scientology wasn't a deal breaker when she started seeing him. She was a grown woman throughout everything. I don't understand why because we may not agree with his religious choice he automatically has to be at fault for what is happening to his marriage. We do not know what happened behind closed doors. One thing we can say is that she did not go behind those doors blind.

This makes no sense at all. She just wants to make him miserable? "Hey, I think I'll divorce my husband, and that should make him really miserable". Please. He belongs to a cult. I doubt it's much different than being with Mel Gibson or Charlie Sheen. They are all crazy. Maybe we love more than others. It's over. Stop speculating.
