Including what we found in Scientology before it became a cult

The real reason Scientology Inc courts celebrities…

…is to use their names and images without permission or recompense to strip the dupes in the Scientology Inc congregation of their money and security.

I remember back in the good old days when Tom Cruise was couch-jumping and battling Matt Lauer and Brooke Shields. The Scientology mission I worked in was suddenly flooded with public.

A “sudden flood” in this case means there were 20 new people in one week, whereas in the six months previously, there was an average (average, mind you) of one new person in per week. Within weeks, the activity level had dropped back off to its unconfrontable one-person-per-week average.

I gave OCA evaluations to most of these new public.

According to what these new people said, the coverage of Tom Cruise’s Scientology involvement had convinced them to come into the mission.

And the stunning thing about them all was that they were convinced “doing” Scientology would give them a guaranteed entrance portal to fame and fortune.

Because, after all, that’s what it did for Tom Cruise, right?

I found it particularly stressful to withhold from them the truth: that Tom Cruise was already on a path to fame and fortune before Mimi Rogers introduced Cruise to Scientology.

The same thing happened to Travolta. He was on a fast-track to stardom before getting sucked into Scientology. That’s why he was studying his low-level Scientology courses on the set of Welcome Back, Kotter.

It was very difficult for me to hold my tongue and not point out the cart-and-horse problem with these new people’s interest in Scientology.

After all, I was trying to get people involved in the religion that would save these people’s eternities while simultaneously saving the world from its ignernt degraded ol’ self.

The irony they didn’t see, of course, was that the most highly-trained Scientologist…the one that had made the most Bridge progress…in a 200-mile radius was stuck in a tiny mission in a Podunk town, not being rich or famous. And it would have been considered an overt of magnitude for me to point it out to them.

Anyway, here’s a promo piece from the Phoenix Idyllic Org that leverages a Scientology celebrity’s name. The celebrity can’t sue, of course, or he’d get instantly declared.

(The promo piece is after the jump.)

Apparently poor Jimmy doesn’t realize that Scientology Inc has squandered its pro-survival capital in scandals, fraud, abortions, and death.

One wonders if Jimmy’s demand that people dare to think for themselves applies to Tom Cruise.

Take out the fancy dot connecting and you’re left with – Tom Cruise is WAY more successful than you. Therefore, you should buy one of these leather-bound Dianetics books. Say huh?
