    Chronology? From what I've seen over the last 4 years, we've always reported on whatever media articles we found to help news spread.

    I think the Star Magazine "Tom is leaving Sci" story got out manuovered by the People magazine running the "Tom is missing Suri" story. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20633293,00.html

    BTW If you want to see what story is getting covered you can use a site called topsy.com you can narrow searches by hour/day/week/etc

    Can't speak for everyone else, but it sure looks like "we" follow tabloids.
    IMO, tabloids are contributing hugely to the downfall of CoS. They are front and center in all the stores, when at the gym they are what everyone picks up to read when doing cardio, they .... are very popular and serve the purpose of innoculating the masses en masse, as well as reducing the fear of litigation the main stream media has held on to for so long.
    And they're SUPER LULZY.

    I think it is useless to speculate at this point. He is away filming and has been for some time. There is no way he can do that and be moving in Scientology circles. There was speculation that he had disconnected from Suri Cruise but that was nonsense as he phoned her every day. Maybe he phones David Miscavige every day. We just don't know. This is all idle speculation unless he makes an announcement or unless it becomes very clear that he is in a situation where he could be mixing in with Scientology but is not doing so.

    If Tom Cruise Quits Scientology, He'll Need a New Religion | The Stir

    By Jacqueline Burt

    That's Tom Cruise in the corner.
    That's Tom Cruise in the spot. Light.
    Losing his religion.

    Yes, according to an "inside source," Tom Cruise might be quitting Scientology!!! I don't know about you, but I definitely didn't see this one coming. Still, the rumored reason for Cruise's crisis of faith makes sense: The source says Cruise is "finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn’t served him as well as he’d hoped -- he’s gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low.” My Xenu, my Xenu, why hast thou forsaken me?

    Anyway, Tom apparently hasn't officially decided to stop drinking the kool-aid leave his church just yet, which is understandable -- after all, the man did devote years and years of his life to the crazy cult institution. But if he DOES, we can only assume he'll be searching for something (new) to believe in.

    Lucky for Tom, there's no lack of religions out there. Here are a few faiths that might work for him:

    1. Catholicism
    Hey, if he's ever gonna win Katie back, this would be the way to do it. Plus, he'd fit right in with all the other guys who like to pretend they're straight wear black.

    2. Buddhism
    Cruise was all about giving mad props to eastern religion back when he made The Last Samurai -- he even called Buddhism "the grandfather of Scientology." Also I heard Little Buddha with Keanu Reeves is his all-time favorite flick. (Okay, I made that part up.)

    3. Hinduism
    Cause we know Cruise is down with the whole arranged marriage thing ... just saying!

    4. Judaism
    With all his experience jumping on couches, he'd probably dance the Hora like a pro. You know, couches and chairs, jumping and dancing ... sorta the same thing.

    5. Jehovah's Witness
    Can't you just picture Tom Cruise showing up on your doorstep with a Bible and that big sparkly grin? He was born for that gig!

    Which religion do you think Tom Cruise should try if he quits Scientology?

    Interesting thought though, I wonder (tinfoil alert) if Miscavige has ever considered asking Cruise to spy on Marty for him.

    Dear TC,

    It has come to my attention that you *may* be considering leaving $cientology. This is a video to you, about that and also if you are not, too. I hope you watch it. If one of your friends sees it, please sit him down and ask him to listen to it, IF you like it. If not, please send me a PM on what I could have said to make it better. Thanks. :) Good luck!

    Also, either way, listen to music: Here's a start:

    I'm wondering if the whole "Ideal Org" scene revolved around Tom Cruise. Scientologists pay big money to buy the premises and big money to refurbish them on the assumption that Tom Cruise will get the public excited about Scientology the world over and the public would flock in to fill the new Ideal Orgs. Wasn't it mentioned somewhere that the staff were fighting each other over who would get the staff posts thinking they were going to get paid well at long last?

    Didn't work, did it, my bivalve buddies? The public can see Tom Cruise is an idiot, they hate your cult, and now half your membership have gone off lines due to the constant heavy regging.

    Didn't the whole debacle start because Tom Cruise thought the Paris Org was a bit run-down?

    And now, it seems he is about to accidentally the whole cult. It is as epic as irony gets.

    Yes, I know about the Paris thing but I think it went deeper than that. I think he might have promised DM that he would get people to flock to Scientology by using his celebrtity status to the full. I think this was a plan between the two of them. DM provides the Ideal Orgs, TC gets the public to flock in.

    They are doing well targeting rich footballers (soccer players) in the UK by giving them talks about the work of Narconon so they might get some big money yet I see Narconon as becoming their main recruiting tool..

    From Facebook:

    Tony Ortega shared a link.

    There's been some tabloid speculation about Tom Cruise leaving Scientology, and it's very thinly sourced. We talked to people who really know him well, and they tell us they're skeptical that Cruise is actually walking away from Miscavige and the church. But we'd like to know what you think: is Tom really breaking away? Let us know.

    Why Tom Cruise Can’t Quit Scientology | ortegaunderground

    Our sources doubt it. One of them put it this way: “Tom Cruise is the most competitive person you will ever meet. It consumes him. And for him to leave Scientology? He’d have to admit that he had made a mistake about one of the biggest things in his life over the last 20 years. He’s just not built that way.”

    I think its very simple he was a part of it but after the publicity caught up to him he used it as a tool once it died down to much for his liking he just stopped caring about it and has not returned to it
  38. Anonymous Member

    totally incorrect. Tom received a very special award from Miscavige, for being an exemplary scilon. Tom's not leaving the cult any time soon. I suspect he thinks he is a BIG BEING.

    He has made this clear, in the bold paragraph.
