Since when are Hollywood stars required to be sane and uncontroversial in order for their movies to be successful? Apparently Tom Cruise has become somewhat crazy and this might explain the less than expected receipts for his new movie. I keep hearing this repeated and seeing titles such as the one I've used to head this entry. One is tempted to suspect a conspiracy.
OK, Scientology seems somewhat wacky but no more than most other religious sects. Maybe Cruise's rant against pharmaceuticals like prozac are making some people angry. Maybe these angry people who spend billions advertising such pharmaceuticals would like to see dissenters like Cruise discredited as frothing nutjobs.
I will not defend Scientology's theologies or methodologies but maybe they're onto something here.
