    Mr. Cruise asserts that having a "critical perspective" (on Scientology anyway) is "connected with intolerance."

    "Katie will make Tom wait"...out of plato and spagetti.

    That would be even cooler.

    (countdemoney @ April 30 2005,11:47) Cruise is probably a nice guy, so he wouldn't be that difficult to hang out with.
    I can attest to the fact that Tom is an awesome guy to speak with. He is very knowledgable on many subjects, and always has something to add to a conversation. Personally, I also appreciated the fact that when Scientology did become the topic at hand, he handled it very casually. He answered the basic questions, suggested some reading, and generally didn't try to shove anything down anyone's throat 'since it came up'. I also enjoyed that he will recommend individual movies he's done, and not give the old line that they are 'all good in their own ways'.
    Well - I'm having a hard time beliveing that he's a intellectual giant. I saw his appearance on "Parkinson" on BBC and he came across as likeable and charasmatic but rather a simple mind. He was not drilled regarding the Scientology thing but just the fact that he is involved casts him in a dubious light. Read up on Scientology on the net and you see what I mean. A good starting point is The Fishman Affidavit - it is a very interesting reading. Parkinson has no commercial agenda and will allow his visitors to dig their own grave if they want to and shine if they can. B

    Don't you know, she's saving herself for the right man- ME. She's the perfect woman for me. My college roomate is going to be so disappointed by the news. He had a huge crush on... Tom Cruise. I swear that I thought my roomate was a latent homosexual cause he was waaaay into Tom Cruise. He collected all of his movies. We're not just talking about blockbusters like Top Gun. No, he had all the crappy movies as well and the chick flicks like Jerry McGuire. And, he even joined Church of Scientology because Mr. Cruise was into that as well. (He ended up hanging their chart on the wall. When they came to visit him, they were wearing some type of uniforms. Finally, when he quit, he had to change our phone number because they kept calling after he quit. That's all I know about Scientology from my experience via my roomate). And, the thing that really made me cover myself up inside our room was when I caught him and Fruity Doug stop the movie at a specific frame so they could check out Mr. Cruise's penis.

    I saw this image yesterday, and was hoping it would not be posted here.  Now I'm going to have to rinse my brain with repeated viewings of "The Gift."

    Never made sense to me to join a religion started by a science fiction writer. Maybe I'm wrong though and the force is real. [​IMG]
