Topic: Scientology and their medication-hating psychologist-at-large, Tom Cruise
It’s no secret that I hate Tom Cruise. He’s a terrible actor, he marries robots, and his toothy grin looks like it would chew through your soul if given the opportunity. Worst of all, he’s
in a cult a Scientologist. I’m no spiritual adviser, but the last time I checked, most religions didn’t require payment plans.
I honestly don’t care that he wants to be part of an organization that has as much validity as a Bernie Madoff investment plan. I think everyone has the right to choose, and if you choose to funnel money into a spaceship built to take you back to the Galactic Confederacy, who am I to judge?
It’s Mr. Cruise’s insistence on opening his mouth and spewing his arrogant, half-witted philosophies that causes me to reach John McEnroe levels of anger. This is a man who chose to star in Rock of Ages, and we’re supposed to listen to anything he says? I’ll take my chances and search for the meaning of life on my own, Tommy Boy.
This got me thinking, what if he had the opportunity to toss his ideas around with some of the greatest minds that ever lived? Would he actually hold his own? Worse, would they find validity in his assertions? I did a little research, and found “sound bites” from sit downs with people who actually knew something about something.
This man is an atrocity on two legs, and the only praiseworthy thing he has done in recent years is call Matt Lauer glib on national television. We’re all entitled to our own beliefs, but that privilege stops when you use your celebrity to deliver an offensive and nonsensical diatribe. At minimum, he’s a narcissist; most likely, there are other mental illnesses hidden beneath Scientological brainwashing.
Tom, if you’re reading this, please stop talking. Stop talking about psychiatry when you are not educated enough to make medically accurate statements. Stop talking about how Scientology has improved your life when you couldn’t make any one of your three marriages work. Stop talking about how you’re the only one who can save someone from an accident when you probably aren’t even current on your CPR certification. Just. Stop. Talking.
Matt Lauer may be glib, but you’re an asshole.
