Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise Are No More

It is no secret that Tom Cruise is a card carrying member of the Church of Scientology. He is not afraid to tout his admiration for the organization and his dedication to it’s principles and practicies.  He once famously say in Rolling Stone, “Some people, well, if they don’t like Scientology, well, then, f%&k you. Really. F*&k you. Period.” In a more calm mood he stated,  “I think it’s a privilege to call yourself a Scientologist and it’s something you have to earn. And because a Scientologist does, he or she has the ability to create new and better realities, and improve conditions.”

While Tom Cruise has been the poster child of the Church of Scientology, he is not alone in Tinsletown for following the lessons of science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.  Scientologists are a controversial bunch who have been hit with accusations from brain washing to fraud.  But there are some very high profile people, along side Tom Cruise, who believe in these teachings.  What other celebrity families are scientologists?

    Jenna Elman and her husband are both avid Scientologists with Jenna once saying, "I intend to make Scientology as accessible to as many people as I can." "In other philosophies, my questions would get answered to some degree, but then I would have a follow-up question and there would be no answer. The logic would dead-end. In Scientology you can find answers for anything you could ever think to ask. These are not pushed off on you as, "This is the answer, you have to believe in it." In Scientology you discover for yourself what is true for you." "No one is telling you. You gain your own knowledge of what is true for you. And so your ability to communicate, your ability to be certain about yourself and to know what your purposes, intentions and goals are, become much stronger. Scientology is about regaining total cause over your own life."

    "I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis Presley, but part of the reason I didn`t go the way they did was because of my beliefs. People make judgments about Scientology, but often they don`t know what they`re talking about".

    But there has been some speculation that Lisa Marie has left the church after her song "So Long" was released this Spring. Some of the lyrics are as follows (and it really does sound like she is speaking of Scientology)

    "This here is a city without lights
    Those are all the people without eyes
    Churches, they don't have a soul
    Soup for sale without a bowl
    Religion so corrupt and running lives
    Farewell, fair weathered friends
    I can't say I'll miss you in the end."

It's not a threat or some cult."
