Back in Nov 2009, Australia Independent Senator Nick Xenophon made a speech in Australia’s Parliament alleging that Scientology was not a religious organization but rather a criminal organization that hides behind its so-called religious beliefs. Fast forward Apr 2012, Senator Nick together with numerous foreigners were invited as independent observers, and attended the biggest rally ever organized by Bersih 3.0 calling for clean and fair election. Needless to say, Xenophon himself was tear-gassed by police under PM Najib administration during the rally. Xenophon, a barrister, called Najib’s government an authoritarian regime and that sent Najib’s UMNO controlled media into attack mode.
New Straits Times and Utusan, which are controlled by Malaysia’s ruling party, UMNO, wasted no time in sending volleys of barrage into Xenophon’s camp. In what appeared to be the stupidest and laziest attempt, both medias actually substituted the word Islam instead of Scientologist in Xenophon’s speech, hoping its false accusation would send religious extremism to do its work in neutralizing the Australian’s negative comment about Najib’s administration. The UMNO papers then retracted and apologized after Xenophon made it a global news by threatening to sue them. Poor UMNO, they may not know the meaning of Scientologist hence the idiocy. Maybe Xenophon could forgive them if they subsitute it with Sexology instead (*grin*).
Now, with Katie Holmes’s (sudden) filing for a divorce from Tom Cruise, maybe it’s time for Najib’s UMNO regime to learn some facts about Scientologist. Scientology was developed by L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer, in 1953 (before Malaysia Independence) as a successor to his earlier self-help system, Dianetics, which in turn is a counseling technique known as auditing – to enable one recall events in his / her past lives. Critics said this auditing is actually a psychotherapy process to weaken your mind into submission, kinda like brain-washing. Scientology believes that souls (Thetans) reincarnate and have lived on other planets before living on Earth.
So yes, scientologists believe in aliens and Xenu, an extra-terrestrial dictator who brought billions of people to Earth in a spacecraft 75 million years ago before killing them, was one of the famous stories reported. As much as Scientology sounds like a normal conman job cheating grandma’s money or Nigerian’s scam-job fleecing professional women-looking-for-handsome-men’s fortune, it has an impressive record in recruiting Hollywood stars such as John Travolta, Lisa Marie Presley, Will Smith, Kirstie Alley and of course, Tom Cruise. Heck, they even believe people are immortals beings who have forgotten their true nature (too bad Colonel Muammar Gaddafi wasn’t a scientologist himself).
Scientology, which Rupert Murdoch called a “weird cult”, consists of members who are made to pledge their allegiance for one billion years (for obvious reason since they’re immortal). Over the last 60 years since its birth, Scientology brought with mind-boggling court cases, defections, revelations and whatnot. But nothing attracts such a huge attention than Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce. Apparently, the belief was that Katie decided to leave her rich and handsome husband because Cruise, said to be the number two (after David Miscavige) in the Scientology Church’s hierarchy, plans to raise their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, as a scientologist. It was the only way to save Suri from being sent to Sea Org (Sea Organization), a special school that educates children as young as five in the ways of Scientology.
According to interviews with former Scientologists and former Sea Org members, Sea Org is actually a quasi-military boot camp in which people live in cramped quarters and basically work from 8.30 morning through to 11.30 at night. Members are paid just $50 a week and banned from leaving their base or they are tracked down by a special team who use emotional pressure or physical force to make them come back. Worse still, Suri is at an age where she would have undergone auditing – a test that reads electrical currents around candidate’s bodies via E-meter or electropsychometer (*ouch*) and measures their spiritual suitability.
Scientology’s headquarters is Gold Base, a sprawling 500-acre multi-million-dollar compound in California that reportedly comes with armed guards, a “sniper-style” bunker and two trailers known as The Hole where the disobedient are punished. Sure, there’re golf course, swimming pool, basketball courts, ship-like structure and whatnot but according to a member, they’re treated like slaves and he himself was locked in a ship’s hold for 18 hours a day with no food by the brutal regime – prompting FBI investigation about human trafficking possibility. Punishments such as leftover food, sleep deprivation, banned from talking to anyone, beatings by the Scientology “elders” are some of the horror stories.
Katie Holmes, the former “Dawson Creek” star, may not be divorcing for money as the couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement prior to their marriage goes kaput but she can surely walk away with what she brought into the marriage, not to mention the cost of raising Suri, provided she wins the sole custody fight in court. Judging from Suri’s closet of designer clothes worth US$3.2 million alone, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to estimate the fortune that Suri will get from her daddy. If Katie is after Cruise money, she would have waited for 11 years of marriage before walk away with half of Cruise’s estimated US$250 million fortune.
Nevertheless knowing David Miscavige, the head of the Church of Scientology and one of Cruise’s best friends, Scientology Inc. has yet to release its propaganda and smear tactics on Katie. So expect tons of Katie’s very personal and confidential details recorded during Scientology auditing to be used against her. Tom Cruise and David Miscavige are so close that they were known as “manwife” and the cult chief is said to have showered Cruise with lavish gifts including an “aircraft hangar” for his private jet and a custom-built luxury coach. But just like how Nicole Kidman didn’t like David Miscavige, Katie Holmes felt the same way, only this time Katie is smart not to repeat Nicole’s mistake in losing the custody of her kid.
Interestingly, Tom Cruise seems to be spooked by the number 33. The Mission Impossible star’s past wives, Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, were all born 11 years apart in 1956, 1967 and 1978 respectively, totalling a spooky 33. And each divorce separated by 11 years – 1990, 2001 and 2012. Scientology’s circle of latitude also is located at 33rd parallel north. And of course if you care to add in the fact that Katie Holmes is calling it quit at the age of 33.
Already, there’re allegations that Katie Holmes actually plotted her divorce well in advance, renting exclusive Chelsea apartment before snooping Suri out to the hiding place while Tom Cruise was away in Iceland to film his latest movie. Katie also purposefully filed for divorce in New York state and not California because New York dislikes giving warring parents joint custody, not to mention Scientologists are rife in powerful positions in Los Angeles and Californian courts.
Well, if you think Scientology is a secret fearful cult, you may not have heard of Mahathirlogy in Malaysia. The Mahathirlogy doctrine has successfully breed and produce all the ingredients mentioned by Scientologists defectors – brutality regime (police), human trafficking (tons of them here), the Hole prison (ISA detention camp superior to Guantanamo Bay), authoritarian David Miscavige (heard of infamous dictator Mahathir Mohamad?), belief in mortality (Mahathir believes he’s the God), brainwash through auditing (Mahathir has done that through racism policy) and whatnot. Heck, compares to Mahathirlogy, Scientology looks like Disneyland, seriously (*grin*).
