I've had an epiphany

I’ve seen the light, had an epiphany even. Tom Cruise tells us:

Being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, its not like anyone else. As you drive past you know you have to do something about because you know you’re the only one that can really help.

and later

We are the authorities on getting people off drugs. We are the authorities on the mind. We are the authorities on improving conditions. Criminal, we can rehabilitate criminals, way to happiness, we can bring peace, unite cultures.

Is there anything Scientology can’t do? Probably not, according to Cruise.

So I’ve had an idea. Let’s clear the Green Zone, bring the troops back home and have the Church of Scientology bring peace to Iraq. You know, "unite cultures". Let the Scientologists put their asses where their mouths are.

Oh, what’s that you say? They wont go?

Why not? The Iraqis have no money.

Figures.

I've done my fair share of ranting about Scientology, be it about Tom Cruise's aggressive and arrogant antipsychiatry nuttiness a couple of years ago or the very recent piece I wrote about the disturbing and idiotically conceived anti-psychiatry museum run by the Church of Scientology. The Church…
As many have pointed out, Isaac Hayes, who happens to be a Scientologist, quit his role as Chef on South Park last week, unhappy that the show had produced an episode that made fun of Scientology. Apparently, it's OK with him if South Park makes fun of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, but say…
Most people know by now that Isaac Hayes has quit working on South Park (he was the voice of Chef) because they did an episode making fun of Scientology. Comedy Central decided to pull the episode, and their reason for doing so is so ridiculous that no one in their right mind would buy it: A Comedy…
Man, this Keith Henson character is a fearsome dude. He was convicted of a crime, fled the state, has been on the lam for 6 years, and was finally caught and thrown in jail, with bail initially set at half a million dollars. What heinous act won him such a nefarious reputation? He posted a joke on…

Iraq is a big jump. As a first step, if they are the only ones who know what to do after an accident, surely they should replace all the paramedics in ambulances? See how they deal with a real emergency.

But seriously, why doesn't an interviewer ever question one of these people for "evidence" of these claims?

Because, in this case at least, the video originates from Scientologists?

Their grammar may be bad, but their ethics are about as low as it is possible for them to be.

Cruise has been told the big lie(s) so many times, he now believes and is willing to lie himself. Good thing actors never get elected to high office.
