One month on from that In Touch cover story that pointed out that it had been 44 days since Tom Cruise has seen Suri (above being dropped off at school yesterday) and stillhe hasn’t jetted in from London for a weekend in New York with his daughter and a gang of paparazzi in tow to record the moment for posterity (and the covers of the American tabloids).
If you have ten minutes spare and feel like being freaked out by how into Scientology Cruise is then read this excerpt from a book called The Scientology Reformation on Marty Rathbun’s blog.
Here’s the most worrying paragraph – which is Tom explaining about him and David Miscavige being ‘big beings’:
“Dave and me, we’re big beings. We are surrounded by DB’s (degraded beings). DBs can’t help but try to destroy big beings. That’s just the way it is in this universe. You have to understand this. This is LRH, man. It’s the plight of the big being getting jumped on by all the degraded beings. You gotta be unreasonable to survive around a big being like me. You can’t be weak. You gotta be strong to protect the big being from all the degraded beings.” Cruise slammed his fist on the table, veins popping out of his neck from the intensity of his tirade…
People have been hospitalised in psychiatric units and labelled as paranoid Schizophrenics for less.
We can all picture him ranting on intensely like this, believing every word and pounding the table all righteously, no idea how mental he seems.
What concerns me is that given that Scientologists believe that kids are reincarnated adults in kids’ bodies, maybe Tom’s purposely not seeing Suri because she’s (according to him) surrounded by Suppressive People at her new school and at home and worse- perhaps he thinks Katie’s a ‘degraded being’? (Being known for the rest of your life as the cute girl from Dawson’s Creek who sold her soul and the rights to her first-born for several million to help promote a freaky cult notwithstanding).
What the poor lamb classifies as ‘degrading’ when he considers a Cleveland Steamer a fun night in with friends I shudder to think.
